Vendetta - New Mac OS X-Only Title?
9:40 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
As Mac OS X begins to gain in popularity across the board, more and more game developers are starting to create OS X-only titles. Guild Software, the latest company up to bat, has recently leaked their intentions to create a port of their first title, Vendetta, for OS X users.
For those unfamiliar with Guild or Vendetta, Vendetta is planned to be a massively multiplayer online 3D first-person space flight simulator. A realistic physics engine will be implemented to make things more interesting, and there are plans to expand the game world with RPG elements, multiple races, and an economic model.
Though the official homepage still has yet to say anything about a Mac port, here's a clip spotted from the devlist:

and I'm having a bear of a time.
I managed to make an exe using gcc and make, but there's no way for me
to run it from the finder.
The file just shows up as a document, even though the execute bit is set
for that file.
Ok, so I figured I needed to make it into one of those application.app
directory structure thingys.
So I made a simple one and now I can execute it from the finder BUT the
current working directory is now / (root dir). What's up with that?
I have other files in my dir where I made my .app stuff that I need to load.
I have many other questions too, but I'll write those down later.
