Strawberry Demo for Mac not working

97 posts in this topic

Hello everybody,

I've just downloaded the Strawberry Demo for Mac of FM 2010, but it don't install anything.

The file I downloaded by BitTorrent is named "Setup FM2010 Demo.app", and I double-clicked it but nothing seems to happen.

Anyone can help me?

Thank you in advance.

How big was the file?

Watch your dock when you double click, does anything happen?

Open your console (use spotlight and search for "Console") and see if anything is showing there.

I can't install on my Mac as I don't have write permissions for the volume, even though I am the admin and have read and write permissions.

Good start as usual SI. Not.

That's strange, Pawel. Where are you trying to install it exactly?

If you bring up the "info" for the folder you're trying to install it in, does it show you as having read/write permissions?

I couldn't even download Strawberry version for my MAC. Because there's only torrent link available and I do not have torrent.

There's a link to several mirrors. The US mirror is incorrect at the moment, don't use it. Germany 1 and the Dutch link are slow as hell, but they work.

Yeah, the file on some of the mirrors is incorrect. Should be almost a 1GB file, not 220MB.

Same prob for me, I think it's because with SIs installer it's not allowing the prompt from os x for your password when you install things into the apps folder. What I did was install it to a portable HDD and then copy the folder into my applications folder and it'll ask you for your password and that's it, should be working fine!

US mirror is broken and it's the fastest one, but german and dutch links are extremely slow. Dont we have any other link where we can download it from?

Apologies for the issues you're having here guys, we're chasing up the mirrors and are looking into the installer problems so should have a solution soon hopefully.

Could anybody who is unable to get the installer working attempt this and let me know if it works for you please, it looks to be a permissions issue as Donkeywong alludes to

Outside possibility here but if you try moving the installer to your 'Applications' folder and trying from there do you get any luck?

Glad you've got it working Steve, apologies again for the trouble, enjoy the game :)

Any other users who are having this issue if you are unable to try using an external HD can you tell me if you are using an admin account on your machine?

Are you running Leopard? I had the same problem when trying to install FM2009 on Tiger.

I've installed it on my macbook, and it runs absolutely perfectly.

Only problem is every now and then the game crashes during a match.

My specs are 2.13GHZ 4GB Ram and GeForce 9400M

Rather than using the autoinstaller I used the setup button on the disk.

I've downloaded the demo and installed it without any problems.

But when i click on the fm icon i get this message "You can't open the application "fm" because it is not supported on this architecture."

I didn't have any problems (apart from the 3D graphics) running the 09 on my mac.

Are my specs just to low or is there any chance of resolving this?

Thanks!

Am currently downloading the strawberry from Torrent. The vanilla worked like a charm yesterday!

One "major" bug though.. Whenever i go from the start screen to preferences and change some settings, then when I press either cancel or confirm it brings me to the credits screen?? pressing the back button in the top left corner takes me back to the main however =)

I'll post my findings on if strawberry installs in a moment

Any help would be great

I thought as much.

But since 09 worked fine and the specs for 10 wasn't supposed to be higher i was kind of hoping it'd work.

But no chance then huh?

Thanks for your help!

PowerPC was actually not supported last year either so you got lucky there, my old PowerPC mac has been retired now :(

I've had no freezes, crashes or pauses yet in game.

The 3d match engine is slightly jittery though, but that it all so far.
