Stencyl doesn't open on Mac


  • Posts: 2
A little while ago I tried to open only for nothing to happen. There was no error message or anything, trying to open it would just give no response. I fixed this problem by downloading Stencyl again and it worked fine, but now the same problem occurs. Is there a way to fix this without having to download Stencyl again every time this problem happens?

If it stops opening when it previously worked, and downloading a fresh copy makes it work again, then it sounds like at some point the Stencyl install folder is being changed in some way. It's not likely to be something that Stencyl itself is doing, so it's a little difficult for me to give advice about handling that.

If you have trouble figuring out what it is that's modifying the Stencyl install folder, an easy way to work around the problem would be to just save the Stencyl download and re-extract it from the dmg or zip file every time it breaks instead of redownloading it.
