Mac save file request

Old topic!

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

A while ago, I made a save editor for CS+. Some people wanted Mac support, but I do not know how the save files differ. I would like a copy of a Mac CS+ profile save in order to understand the file structure changes.

The purpose of 'Cave Panther' was originally to fill the gap of native CS+ save editing. Because it won't work on Mac, the program is unfinished. If one person wants Mac support, I add support. Someone on YouTube requested it years ago, and I finally want to add it.

Update: Mac save file support added to the latest Cave Panther editor https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XwyDo22kSx3Ve_HfKpurLEoBeulkKk7L/view?usp=sharing
It is preliminary, but appears to work

With playonmac. The profile.dat file is compatible. Previously, I did not know how a Mac profile is different to a windows save. Now I know that basically just a cumulative offset is 2 bytes shorter for Mac.

That's not "Mac support".
That's "Support for savefiles from Mac version"

Indeed. I'm not aware of any difficulties using playonmac, and the file is clearly an exe. As a rare proactive developer supporting a niche program that was released 5 years ago, this is still significant.
