I had a problem with the initial release of Mari0, but the 1.1 update seems to have fixed that.
But now with the 1.1 update, there is a big pink pig with hearts circling it for a seemingly endless time.
Hopefully it's just a loading screen. But at least now it seems like the game is working.

Good Day,

That is not a loading screen. That means you don't actually have Mari0, just Love2D.

Thats really weird, because I downloaded the OSX Version of Mari0, not Love2D
Would it be allowed for someone to post a copy of the Mac OSX .zip file for Mari0 on this thread?

Initially the release was packaged wrong. Redownload it to solve the issue.

It still does the magical pig thing even after I re-downloaded

I can confirm this is not an issue with the actual Mac package, my 1.1 download worked fine.

I was wondering if someone could simply post a copy of a clean MacOSX Mari0 .zip file here. If they did this, I could probably download that .zip and see if it's not some sort of computer fail.

Are you sure you redownloaded and the browser didn't just open a cached version of the file?

And of course, I get the magic pig to go away, but now I get the freaking audio.lua:27: Could not read Ogg bitstream error again.
Life sucks right now :D

I'm seeing this, too; I've tried a bit of surgery to see if I can get the binary to work, but no go. Running Mari0.app/Contents/MacOS/love doesn't spit anything out on the console.

I downloaded it just a few minutes ago:

My OS is Lion, 10.7.3

Can you verify that mari0_1.1.love is in Mari0.app/Contents/Resources/ ?

It is.

I have managed to get it to work; one of these two steps seems to have been the key:

1. Unzip using the CLI unzip application
2. Running the app from ~/Applications instead of /Applications
