@KiraNet contrary to what @pasunna said theoretically it is possible to export to Mac from Windows.

MacOS and Windows both need the OGG format. The m4a format is needed for mobiles (android/iOS), and NOT for MacOS. And even if it were that would not be a problem because there are a lot of free programs to convert audio files (like audacity for example)

The problem of not having spaces in file and foldernames again has nothing to do with MacOS. RMMV creates HTML5-games, and that means that all file and foldernames should follow networking rules (which include no spaces and several other rules) on EVERY computer and system. That includes Windows, because even the windows override to force the browser into accepting spaces often fails. Or why do you think the spaces are replaced with %20 on every browser error- or file-message?


The main problem on exporting for MacOS on a Windows computer is that the MacOS file system contains flags that do not exist in the Windows file system. As a result the export from the Windows computer will show up as a folder and remain a folder when transferred to MacOS, simply because the flag that tells the Mac to display and handle the folder as an MacOS-app is not present.
And it needs someone experienced in the workings of a MacOS system to repair that afterwards - until then you would have to manually enter the folder to select the gamefile to start, something that is otherwise automated on MacOS as soon as the folder is declared as an APP.

ESAMarathon on Twitch, now streaming "Eat Girl". Yep, that's the title of a game... Apparently it's a Pacman knockoff.... Which is of course the only logical conclusion one would get from a name like "Eat Girl". :kaopride: I can't believe anybody would think anything else! :kaoback:
Super stoked i just finished my first town in my project, by finished i mean i can always add more decorative aesthetics and the NPCs don't talk yet but the mapping is complete and all the important chess pieces are present!
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
Me: Good!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
Me: Crap.
Should be able to release Haxe MV/MZ next weekend.
It look that somehow MZ tracks are messed up (for example battle4 is obviously a theme, castle2 is a ship, ship1 is a scene and so on..). Maybe they just named them after with some ambiguity.
