I use to play Osu frequently but when i got a mac i stopped. Can someone guide me in how to install it on a mac since I really want to start playing again. I don't know where to start.

So I tried playing osu! on where I was playing it originally, it said: "Another user is currently using this application. They must exit the application before you can use it.

Then when I went to my other account in my computer, it said: ERROR! cannot write into Infoplist, there are permission problems or you are on a read only volume. This cannot run from within a read-only dmg file.

And this keeps going on a loop! ;~; How can I fix this? (And I did reinstall it. It's still the same.)


Edit: Figured it out. Nevermind.

Seems like you are trying to run game from install .dmg ? copy the osu!.app to applications folder and then run.
Thank you kind sir! That has seemed to fix it! I owe the world!

If you want to get skins, first of all you download them like usual whether it be on a macbook or on a windows computer. E.g. Click this link to view some skins
Then after you have downloaded the skin, you will need an archiver of some sort. Windows uses winRaR or whatever but for mac I personally use Archive Utility (it's free and works like a charm - should be installed on your mac already) 8-)

Then, locate your skin file within your computer using finder or to wherever you saved the download and open it with Archive Utility.
Extract the file to wherever (I usually save it to my desktop for ease of access).

Then find osu in your finder and right click it - then select Show Package Contents

Once inside, you should see 3 folders and a wineskin.app. Click on the osu! folder.

In there, you should see another folder called skins. You want to place your extracted download (zip download was turned into a file saved to your desktop)
into here. E.G End result should look like this

If you need any further help you can just P.M. me on the forums :)
Oh for the lag, try to have minimal programs open and if you need to, in settings in osu type in OpenGL and run osu through that instead of DirectX. Reduce any visual settings you may have put on accidentally.

Hope I helped! :)

I thought you couldn't run OpenGL on the OS X version?

Yeah, osu for mac OSX isn't that reliable. >:(
I've had to re-download and delete osu multiple times, sometimes not even able to open it in the first place. :cry:
Check what programs you may have, like I found if you have Razer Synapse then osu! will keep crashing.
I'm not really able to help unless I know the direct source, so my guess is to wait until osu! is updated (next patch) or try and re-download osu! again.

Have you ever tried using it? Because it doesn't work.

Yeah I've used it somewhat, but only if I try for an SS and osu glitches for a second and it's impossible thats the only time I do :P
If you click it it should restart osu and start it in a more *stable* manner


Just double checked now, yeah the box doesn't stay ticked although I find that if I click it osu! seems to run more smoothly :?::|
I think this may be due to the fact that it's a windows application wrapped using wine so it comes pre-installed with DirectX :P

Yeah i was gonna say i don't think you know what you're on about :P I've tried absolutely everything i could think of in order to get smooth gameplay. All we can do is hope the new update will be good, otherwise i'm gonna look at a larger hard-drive and use bootcamp, although i really don't want to dedicate half my drive just for a game.
