The issue I was trying to fix was the game starting in the wrong directory (which I ran across once myself).. You can see if that is your issue by opening the Terminal application, and running the following
If THAT doesn't fix the issue then check the config folder (within the Contents/Resources folder) and see what the main_init.cfg looks like (or post it here).
I ran the code in terminal, and it booted to a black screen that flashed blue, and then crashed. (Which could be my graphics driver sucking) and then when It asked to be restarted I still got the same error message: could not load main init....
So I found the main_init.cfg file:
Resources = "resources.cfg"
Materials = "materials.cfg"
Game = "config/game.cfg"
Menu = "config/menu.cfg"
PreMenu = "config/pre_menu.cfg"
Demo = "config/demo.cfg"
DefaultMainSettings = "config/default_main_settings.cfg"
DefaultMainSettingsLow = "launcher/default_main_settings_low.cfg"
DefaultMainSettingsMedium = "launcher/default_main_settings_medium.cfg"
DefaultMainSettingsHigh = "launcher/default_main_settings_high.cfg"
DefaultUserSettings = "config/default_user_settings.cfg"
DefaultUserKeys = "config/default_user_keys.cfg"
DefaultBaseLanguage = "base_english.lang"
DefaultGameLanguage = "english.lang"
MainSaveFolder = "Main"
BaseLanguageFolder = "config/"
GameLanguageFolder = "config/lang_main/"
CustomStoryPath = "custom_stories"
GameName = "Amnesia - The Dark Descent -"
File = "00_rainy_hall.map"
Folder = "maps/main/"
Pos = "PlayerStartArea_1"
Not sure whether there is anything wrong with it per se. I am running a 10.5.8 version of mac OSX, but it is an intel core macbook, and after reading the rest of the forum messages I feel that ultimately it will be my graphics card at the root of this issue. which can't be helped. That having been said, I do hope its something fixable. (would the game ever be patched to be compatible at much lower settings for graphics drivers such as mine?)
