    The lastest build for MacOS doesn't have the PA icon in the DMG file and doesn't seem to launch. Seems suspect. Can anyone else confirm?

    It's running fine for me.

    Although, I updated through the launcher.

    Can you please try to check for crash log?

    If you'r have Steam please copy and paste your system information in this topic:
    In Steam window -> top menu bar -> click "Help" -> click "System Information"

    There is few other players on Mac affected by same problem: PA#3612

    I'm not using the steam version. It's odd. I can't find a crash log. I see the default application icon for PA (the bundle). If I navigate to /Volumes/PA/PA.app/Contents/MacOS and run ./PA at a terminal, it works fine.

    Info.plist also looks fine:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist SYSTEM "file://localhost/System/Library/DTDs/PropertyList.dtd">

    <plist version="1.0">

    I think I had the same issue as you but i'm not sure. I downloaded the patch fine and i could launch the game, but when i clicked accept, it crashed the game every time and I could never actually get into the game. If this is the case for you, or even if it isn't, what worked for me was to delete the local storage folder in your PA game files, and to get to it, you have to go:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/localstore

    and delete the local storage folder, then restart game and see if it works. Hope i helped.

    Same issue here. Launcher missing icon, when launched silently fails. When launching from command line, receive:

    Code:
    dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: ___strlcpy_chk
      Referenced from: /Applications/PA.app/Contents/MacOS/libSDL2.dylib
      Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
    
    dyld: Symbol not found: ___strlcpy_chk
      Referenced from: /Applications/PA.app/Contents/MacOS/libSDL2.dylib
      Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
    Non-Steam version. Had previous build, which was deleted from Applications folder and replaced with this new build. Renamed "Local Storage" dir, problem persisted.

    I noticed the latest build added some additional libs to the project dir, including "libSDL2.dylib". The previous build (66943) did not include these libs.

    My env does have some dev tools installed (Xcode w/ CL tools, etc).

    Mac OS 10.8.5

    I think this is a new bug, and pretty well described. Can you report it on bugtracker?

    I have a suspicion about the cause of this issue (a friend had a similar issue), are you by any chance running 10.7?

    Also not working. Wouldn't load to begin with, updated everything, and now enters into game but does not give drop zones/metal spots. Eventually com explodes - f5 didn't work. Also disabled mods, but no luck. I'm not as computer literate as some of you folk, so I can't give a much more detailed explanation, but I thought I'd let you know I'm having problems too.

    Check Settings, UI and make sure metal spot icons are enabled. Then look at the keyboard settings, the first two toggle the UI and icons. Try those in-game and make sure you didn't turn them on by accident.

    Failing that, get a system report together and have a look at the bugtracker. If you can't find a matching issue to add your report to, add a new one.

    Very broken. The lag is terrible and I can't choose Australian servers.

    You can bypass this problem by deleting your game settings directory and then game will ask you again about server region you want to use.

    And where would I find this "settings" directory?

    For Mac OS X:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/localstore/

    For GNU/Linux & SteamOS:
    ~/.local/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/localstore/

    @aarond10 if you reproduce the crash, when the OS X crash dialog appears, click "Report..." Then you can copy and paste that into a text file. You don't need to send the report to Apple.

    I'm curious if you are getting the same "Symbol not found" error as @thrashbarg (#3632) or the KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS during PendingUberNetCall::httpRequestFailed that I am (#3612).
