I am running Mac OSX 10.8.5 (Lion) and I have just downloaded Mari0. I boot it up first time and there is no sound. I mute and unmute, re-open many times and there still isn't any sound. I have deleted the LOVE folder in my Application Support folder and redownloaded with no avail.

What else can I try?

It's possible there's an issue with the audio library the game uses (OpenAL), in OS X.

Can you try this build of Mari0? ...

It's the same as 1.6, but it has some updates to the third-party libraries the application uses. In particular, instead of using Apple's version of OpenAL which is built-in to OS X (it's notoriously buggy), it uses OpenAL-Soft, a popular cross-platform implementation of OpenAL.

Thanks, that worked perfectly first time. It seems you're correct about the audio library issue :)
