Mac OS X and DMG, and what I could do for the BSC
« on: March 30, 2008, 12:37:49 AM »
As you all know, the BSC is for the most part an EXE factory.

One problem: there are Mac SimCity people out there.

Most Mac OS X installers use the DMG format.

I found a small, lightweight application called Quick DMG that allows me to efficiently create DMG files.

What I can do with Quick DMG is create DMG format disk images for Mac users with everything that the EXE files have.

One catch to DMG: the executable installers are in a different format, and I don't have the tools to decode that. I could create a simple "drag and drop" process with the alias to where SC4 plugins are located on Mac OS X. And even applications do that!

If you are interested, please reply. If I am cleared to begin work and upload the stuff, I will create my own upload image icons, etc.

Most mac users (including me) use File Juicer (http://www.echoone.com) to extract the files from an exe installer, so this would be fairly unnecessary IMO, but thanks for the offer  :thumbsup:
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it
