Demo won't run (Mac)
 
The Mac demo gives an error:

Critical Error:
Couldn't find Database/database.dbl!

On the Mac (macOS High Sierra 10.13.3)...

I also had a problem with the game with the latest patch quitting on me during first character creation, but I copied the binary from my desktop to the laptop, and figured it might just be that I hadn't installed from scratch or something I had modded...so i went to try the demo *and here we are.

Can't find database, hm did you possibly delete all the zip files inside game's assets folder?

I can see there being confusion because you put mods there too

I installed the demo straight from the Soldak download (after deleting the copy from my desktop Applications folder).

Then I deleted the demo, got my original install files and reinstalled and that was fine but thought maybe Steve would want to know that the demo itself doesn't seem to be working on High Sierra.

That might be Apple's new Gatekeeper Path Randomization / App Translocation stuff getting in the way. Some things you can try: 1) after installing, move the game with Finder to a different folder, 2) xattr -d com.apple.quarantine <FileName>

The game is fine from the installer. I knew better than to just copy from the Applications folder....especially a modded game.

The demo downloaded and installed straight from the site didn't work.
