    Follow these instructions to make it work on Mac:

     

    Right click on the app icon> Show package contents> Contents folder

    Rename the exec file "MacOS" to "powder-x" (it will ask for your computer password)

    Create a new folder in the same place as the exec file, name it "MacOS" (it may ask for password again)

    Move the powder-x file to the MacOS folder (it will ask you to authenticate)

    Go back and right click on the app icon> Open (hit ok to open)

    I opened a GitHub issue to remind me to fix it. Thanks for the solution. It makes it pretty obvious to me what the problem is, really minor mistake in the build process.

    Also on an unrelated note,

    Is the change for the shape of the circle brush expected to be permanent? I think the smooth shape has some major flaws because it looks less like a circle than it did before. Without the 4 points, the sides of the "circle" are too flat, especially for circles with diameter <13px. This essentially makes it a square with rounded off corners. Using shift to make an oval exaggerates this issue. Large circles do look better with the sides smoothed off, but at least for sizes <13, I would strongly prefer the vanilla brush shape. At 3px, its the same as a square so it is even more redundant.

    I do agree. When it was first changed, I said I liked the original better, and the new one is ugly. But the old brush was also wrong, some some users complained about that way too.
    Here is the save that led to this change:

    And here is the actual pull request: https://github.com/The-Powder-Toy/The-Powder-Toy/pull/681

    Perhaps there could be an option. Someone also suggested multiple brushes, but I don't want two circle brushes in the tab list, with just a 4 pixel difference on them. An option is also a little weird because again, it's a 4 pixel difference.
