clearly something is going over my head.
Added the OSX version I downloaded the osx version.
Test it, see if it works on your system.
copied everything into the df folder
not quite sure how to get it to work
Open Terminal. Perform the following:
$ cd /path/to/DF
when I type those commands into the terminal I get "no such file or directory"
when I type those commands and DF is open, nothing happens at all
You can't just type "cd /path/to/DF". That's a placeholder. I don't know what directory you have Dwarf Fortress installed in. If you don't know how to use the terminal to find out, then do this:
1) In the Finder, locate the folder with DF in it.
2) Open the Terminal.
3) Type "cd " (that's with a space at the end). Do not hit Enter.
4) Drag the folder with DF in it from the Finder into the Terminal window. This will place the full path to the DF directory in the Terminal window.
5) Hit Enter.
6) Type "./dfhack" and hit Enter.
If this doesn't work, then either you're doing it wrong
, or you have an odd installation of DF, or DFHack isn't installed correctly.
