I am running OS X El Capitan on OS X 10.11.6 on a mid-2010 iMac with a 2.39 Ghz Intel Core i7, 16gb RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB video card.
On a fresh download of the Epic Games Launcher, and a first run, the a dialog box opens that says, “Epic Games Launcher.app can’t be opened.”
Curious, I went into the package contents for Epic Games Launcher.app and in /Contents/MacOS I found EpicGamesLauncher-Mac-Shipping terminal script.
I double-clicked it, and the script loaded in iTerm. I captured the log output, and put it on PasteBin here: ➜ ~ /Applications/Epic\ Games\ Launcher.app/Contents/MacOS/EpicGamesLauncher-Ma - Pastebin.com
One thing to note - the first time I ran this terminal script, the Epic Games Launcher updated itself. But even after updating, I am not able to launch the app by simply double-clicking the Epic Games Launcher.app file
I have to go into package contents for the app file itself and run the terminal script listed above.
Hope this helps the dev team and other devs who have similar trouble as me.
- Be on OS X 10.11.6
- Run Epic Games Launcher.app
- If you receive message app can’t be opened, right/CTRL-click on .app file and select “Show package contents”
- Navigate to Contents → MacOS
- Double-click EpicGamesLauncher-Mac-Shipping terminal script
- Use the Epic Games Launcher
