Note: this is a Mac related post, but I don't know how to move it to the Mac forum
Just in case anybody else gets this issue. The Only solution is to restore a backup of your machine.
If you want to try to recover...Before you do eventually end up doing a restore, you can try the following:
- open Disk Utility
- run verify permissions
- run repair permissions
try to start the game again.
If it doesn't work, then just do the restore like I said earlier.
If you don't have a backup of your machine. then you are in a whole lot of trouble (you may use other words starting with S or C) that is not related to any Eschalon games: get a Coffee: Strong.
If other programs were affected... wait for a few days...
In Fact, if other programs were affected...
You *will* now have to reinstall mountain Lion. I Did have to do this and it killed me until I accepted it.
After this experience, if you don't start doing backups,
I have no, I mean no, sympathy.
sorry about that,
you gotta get some acceptance into your life, or else you just die.
