Trine 2 from Mac App store does not start

Postby jdiz » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:20 pm


I just purchased a copy from the App store to play on my MacBook Pro 2011 - running Mountain Lion 10.8.1 and it does not start.

It only opens the Launchpad but does not do anything once you click on start.

Please help.

UPDATE - I just tried to start using the command line to find out the error message and this is the output,

bash-3.2# ./Trine2Game
Illegal instruction: 4

Hello jdiz and sorry to hear you're having trouble with the game.

I've forwarded this issue to our coders and they will take a look at it. I unfortunately do not have idea what could be the cause of this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello, I just wanted to say that i'm also unable to run Trine 2 on Mac OS X Mountain lion 10.8.2. my computer is Mid 2007 imac with $GB RAM
i've also tried to launch the game from Terminal
i ended up with
Marcins-iMac:MacOS Marcin$ pwd
Marcins-iMac:MacOS Marcin$ ./Trine2
Changing to inside bundle /Applications/
Changing to inside bundle /Applications/
Launching from inside bundle /Applications/
Executable path /Applications/
Marcins-iMac:MacOS Marcin$ ./Trine2Game
Illegal instruction: 4
Marcins-iMac:MacOS Marcin$

that means this elusive code 4 again
just signaling it is not a single-time issue i'd love to receive a fix ASAP
