Is this game compatible with OS X Lion?

Postby hamerfan » Aug 01, 2011

Hi Aidan,
I haven't upgraded to Lion yet, but I was wondering if Solitaire 3D version 5.11 is compatible? It works great with Snow Leopard.
Thanks for a great game!

I did a quick test the other day on Lion and the game seemed to work fine.

I am using 3.4, and Solitaire 3D is failing on Lion using a Macbook Air 13". The game starts, but the board is totally black.

I was happily using the 3D solitaire games and this morning they have just stopped working. Cannot even open the Apps at all.

For those with problems running the game on Lion, can you post the contents of the game's log file here please.

You can find it by doing the following:

  • Go to Finder
  • Select "File" then "New Finder Window"
  • Go to the following folders:
  • Users, <your user name>, Library, Application Support, GrassGames, <game name>

where <game name> is "Solitaire 3D" or "Free Solitaire 3D" depending on the game you are running. The file is called "LogFile.txt".

Hi, Aidan. I have been unable to play Solitaire 3D ever since I upgraded from Snow Leopard OS to Lion OS last summer. As it's my favorite of all other solitaire games online, I'd love to be able to play again. I'm adding the LogFile.txt that you ask for in cases like this. I have no idea why there are so many errors. Is there hope that I can play again? Does anyone have problems on Lion OS if they use the paid version? I will gladly pay for that version if it will work. I'll wait patiently for your reply. Thanks for your help.

For the "DeckSide.bmp" problem on Lion, try the following:

  • If the game is in your dock, [ Right click ] or [ Control + Click ] the icon in the Dock and select "Options", then "Show in Finder"
  • In Finder, [ Right click ] or [ Control + Click ] the game app itself, and select "Show Package Contents"
  • Go to the folders in the new window that appears: "Contents" then "Resources"
  • Select the file "Blank.bmp" by single clicking on it
  • Select "Edit" and "Copy" from the main finder menu then "Edit" and "Paste item"
  • You will now see a file called "Blank copy.bmp"
  • Click on "Blank copy.bmp" and rename it to "DeckSide.bmp"
  • Try running the game again.
