Installing a texture pack - doesn't work

by adub99 » Post

Hi all. Please forgive the general level of ignorance on display here...I am a complete newbie at minetest, having only discovered it this week !
I am playing on a mac running Yosemite, and the game itself installs and runs great. I have downloaded your texture pack (512) and unzipped it. From here i have renamed it hdx512 and copied this folder to (os drive)/applications/minetest/contents/resources/bin/textures/ (im using minetest 0.4.12)

When i go to the texture tab starting a game, there is nothing in there !

Any ideas where I might be going wrong. I have read loads of instructions telling me to put the folder in the Textures folder, so please don't assume I have not read up on what to do, it just dont work ! And again, I'f I'm being dumb, I apologise. I dont want to waste anyone's time, Im just fed up with wasting mine !

Thanks for any help and / or advice

Andy

The path is …/minetest/textures/hdx512

It is on the same level as bin, not a subfolder!

…/minetest/bin

Regarding the OSX builds topic texturepacks would need to be placed here: "~/Library/Application Support/minetest/textures/"

Thx. Blockmen. That was the right place. (TBH I was also not renaming the unzipped archive correctly !)

Many thanks
for your help
