Writing Hugo Games on Mac?

Post by inveilus »

Currently if I get what seems to be the right Hugo distribution for writing Hugo games for a Mac (currently using Sierra), I get a "Bad CPU type in executable."

Before I started too deep into the weeds, I figured I would check: can Hugo development be done on a Mac?

It can - will write details tonight. I compile on my Mac every day and I'll show you how.

OK, source code should be here: https://bitbucket.org/rsherwin/hugo-mac

(I realize this is a weird way to do it and all needs to be documented.)

Lemme find the binary for the compiler.

OK, I am thinking the compiler compiler isn't on the net. Argh.

This is the file that I use to compile, however: http://www.joltcountry.com/downloads/hu ... 3.1.03.zip

Can you let me know if that works for you, inveilus?

The Hugor (first) link for me works but the second link you posted doesn't. (Page not found.)
