I downloaded a .invs file from a random site on the internet and uploaded it in my global game settings for the icon you're supposed to see in your dock when you run the game. However, not only can I not see it in the dock, I can't even see it on my computer when I click on it!
I know it's there, if I right-click and hit "view package contents" and search through a bit, I can find the file.
And I know that it's a .invs file I'm supposed to be using. .ico dosen't work.
And lastly, I know the file isn't corrupt. I can open it with preview and everything.
If you wanna know, I'm running snow leopard on a 15 inch core i7 macbook pro, about 6 months old, and using the pro version of GM4mac. I open it using GM Launcher, but I'm sure that doesn't have anything to do with it either.
Anyway, please help, I need to have it finished by tomorrow. I could submit it without the icon, but it wouldn't look as cool. Thanks!
P.S. This is the first time I tried to do this, and I'm logged into the administrator user.
EDIT: The .invs file is inside the folder named resources (when I click "show package contents") and it's called YoYo70.invs
There is also a "unix executable file" entitled YoYo70 (without an extension) within the file "MacOS".
Transferring the file YoYo70.invs into the MacOS file stops the game from loading
Copying and pasting the file lets the game load, but has no effect on the appearance of the program, even when restarting my computer.
Copying and pasting the "unix executable file" into the resources folder similarly has no effect.
I'm afraid to change the extension of the YoYo70 file, so I haven't tried that, but given what I've done already, that shouldn't have any effect on the program.
And lastly, copying and pasting the .invs file onto my desktop, then closing the "package contents", right-clicking my program and selecting "get info", and dragging the .invs file into the icon will change the icon into a picture of a file recognized by preview, with the letters INVS underneath, but not changing it to the image itself. The extension is not affected, and can be run normally. Still need help, please.
