OSX download not opening

I don't know what the hell I did, but downloading Angband in OSX format from the nightlies or even the standard OSX from rephial no longer open. The Angband toolbar flashes for a moment at the top of the screen and right back to the Finder toolbar. Was it something that got corrupted in my last computer backup? A plist file? I unhid the library files and deleted that rephial.angband pfile (and also the faangband pfile from the last comp), but to no avail. Was it downloading an update to OSX that screwed me up? I'm mystified. Maybe the universe is just telling me to not play Angband for awhile?

It might be crashing on launch. Try opening the Console (/Applications/Utilities/Console.app) and seeing if anything shows up there when you try to launch Angband.

I believe I had this at one point, but I can't recall what the problem was. I would have suggested the plist file. Conceivably something in your Documents/Angband directory might be causing problems.

If you have upgraded to macOS Sierra, I don't know of Angband being tested on that yet...

Nope, still on macOS Yosemite. EDIT: Correction, running macOSX El Capitan

In the mysterious language of computers, this is what the console shows when I attempt to launch the latest version of macosx Angband downloaded from the nightlies:

9/26/16 9:47:04.770 PM WindowServer[172]: send_datagram_available_ping: pid 482 failed to act on a ping it dequeued before timing out.
9/26/16 9:47:04.988 PM lsd[258]: LaunchServices: Could not store lsd-identifiers file at /private/var/db/lsd/com.apple.lsdschemes.plist
9/26/16 9:47:05.017 PM launchservicesd[83]: SecTaskLoadEntitlements failed error=22
9/26/16 9:47:05.020 PM launchservicesd[83]: SecTaskLoadEntitlements failed error=22

9/26/16 9:47:05.080 PM coreaudiod[180]: SecTaskLoadEntitlements failed error=22
9/26/16 9:47:05.600 PM angband[8694]: Parse error in object line 427 column 3.

Well, managed to solve the second line above, the LaunchServices: Could not store lsd-identifiers file.... by creating the directory through terminal and providing permissions. The rest of the errors still persist. Argh! No Angband playing for me, I guess.

The last one is the one to pay attention to. The ones above aren't fatal, but a parse error is:

Do you have a user-modified object.txt file somewhere? That strikes me as the most likely potential problem.

Thank you, Takkaria. And... I'm an idiot....

Before the FAangband competition, I was playing around on Rocketband, (which shows up in the directories as Angband, not Rocketband). So, when I download the nightly and try to run it, of course the computer is confused. Duh! Renamed the Rocketband directory from "angband" to "rocketband" (or anything but angband) and now the nightly will work. Just have to remember the next time I want to play rocketband to change the directory names around.

Derakon, why couldn't you have made the executable and directory name Rocketband? As Nick would say, FAangband does this!

Because after spending 1440 hours straight with no sleep working on getting Rocketband working, I uploaded the first thing that ran and produced the desired results, and the rest is history.

Sorry.

I'm joking, of course. I know Rocketband was meant for April Fool's, and was a great gift. As it turned out, it's one of my favorite variants!
