Trouble installing Supernatural- DMG file won't launch. [SOLVED]

Post by jaroku747 on Sat 03 Nov 2012, 17:00

I have a mac v. 10.6.8 with 4.5 gb of memory and a Sims base game that I bought, along with most of the EPs. Last night, I downloaded Supernatural from this site and followed all of the instructions carefully, but it didn't install. Today, I found the games4theworld mac installation guide and am having trouble opening the Supernatural application after making it a DMG file. In the instructions, it says I should be able to double click the file and the installer should automatically pop up but I've done everything and it still won't launch. I'm not really tech-savvy, this is the first time I am torrenting a game and I would like to run this without too much trouble. I'm terribly confused....please help!!

Hi there

After making a dmg, you need to open your dmg file and double click on the Installer.

Let me know if it helps!

I did those things and the installer still didn't load. I have since fixed it, I figured out that I didn't unzip the Supernatural.rar file using Stuffit Expander (I used UnrarX) and the installer wouldn't work because the setup file was an .exe, which doesn't work for macs. Stuffit unzipped that file properly and fixed the problem.

Thanks for your reply, though! Much obliged.
