Error before launching the game on Mac

Post by Spiere101 » April 15th, 2019, 4:00 pm

First time poster. I have a Mac running IOS 10.11.6. I've been playing Wesnoth on it for a few weeks now, but today the game won't open at all anymore. It says: "The Battle for Wesnoth quit unexpectedly." The game doesn't launch at all, it just gives me this error message. What could be the problem? I haven't changed anything on the Mac and had no problems playing the game in the past. Any suggestions? Sorry if I posted this on the wrong thread.

Welcome to the forums!
Indeed, it’s an iOS forum.

While the thread is being moved, can you please run a terminal and start the app from the terminal, like /Applications/The Battle for Wesnoth/MacOS/wesnoth and post the output?

Enabling error reporting in MacOS and posting a crash dump would also help (will post an instruction in the evening).

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

I have error reporting, what section of the error report should I paste here? it's very long. I will also paste the terminal output.
Thank you for the reply
