What’s new in version 1.0 RC3

Version 1.0 RC3:

Note: You need to perform a few steps before running the game.

  1. SavageXR should be plainly installed in Application folder.
  2. Go to Savage, bring up the Info window with Cmd. I, and at the bottom right you'll see a lock. You'll need administrator permissions to unlock it; do so, and then click the plus at the bottom left. Ideally, it should bring up a Contacts window that will have your account listed somewhere in it. Click on your account and Select/Add, and it should add your account to the list in the Savage Info window. If your account isn't listed in the Contacts window, try fiddling around with "New Person" in the same window.
  3. Now that you've added your name to the Savage Info window list, click the drop-down on the same line as your name and set it to "Read & Write".
  4. Close the window, then right-click (hold Control on the keyboard and click) on SavageXR and hit "Show Package Contents". Inside you'll see a folder called Contents. Right-click that folder and repeat the above process to add your name and Read/Write privileges to the Contents folder Info window. Then click the gear at the bottom of the Contents info window to bring up the menu, then click what should say "Apply to Contents" to apply the permissions to every file inside the Contents folder, thereby making it possible to write to the game and use the auto-updater…thereby allowing you to run the game.
