This is great. Just downloaded for my new mac. I've had one problem though, It seems to crash sometimes if I minimize it or pause rendering. Any ideas on how to fix that?

Hi,
I never experienced that kind of problem ...
And unfortunately, I don't have much time nowadays, so I can't really work on it sad
I'll try to figure out the cause of this bug, but I can't promise anything as of now ...

Thats cool, it's just kind of a side project for me. I guess I'll just have to not pause or minimize while rendering for now. Thanks anyways cheesy

Hi,

Old fractal enthusiast here (since 1987, actually), but total noob on Mandelbulb 3D, so please excuse me the very basic question. I have searched a lot for the answer, and am very reluctantly coming here for support. I have tried following the link on the reply above this (made in 2013), but the thread therein referred no longer exists.

I am trying to get Mandelbulb 3D to work on my 2014 Macbook Pro running Sierra, but haven't been successful so far. After copying the software (Wineskin encased) to my Applications folder and trying to run it, all I get is the following error message:


ERROR! cannot write to Info.plist, there are permission problems, or you are on a read-only volume.
This cannot run from within a read-only dmg file.



The software is not inside a DMG file, and I believe I have all the necessary permissions to run any software on my computer (haven't ever had any problem in this regard. I have, actually, even tried to run it as the computer's administrator, but to no avail.

Can someone offer any insight on how to run it properly?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forums   afro

Why be reluctant to ask here?  We always try to help where we can.

I used a macbook pro running OSX 10.4 and one running OSX 10.5 (sorry, the animal and place name stuff confuses me) and both ran MB3D perfectly under WINE.  I never needed the one in the mac wrapper.

Have you tried WINE?  

Apart from that, hopefully a more experienced mac user will pop by soon with a better solution for you.

Good luck with it!


EDIT - DUH!

Posted before coffee...

Saw you said wineskin encased after I posted.

To clarify. Get WINE and run it.  Then add the .exe version of MB3D.  Run from within WINE.

Is that what the wineskin encased version does?  I am years away from a mac and forget   cry
