Install instructions

Binary builds with all dependencies packaged are available from the downloads, though there should not be issues with running from source code.

With the macOS .app bundle, note that you may get an error after clicking Hobot's Ascent.app about me being an untrusted developer. Go to System Preferences, Security, and click "Open anyway".

If you run into any issues, please send the output log. In the binary builds, the output is saved to the following log files:

Windows: C:\Users\You\AppData\Local\Hobot's Ascent\output.log

macOS: /Users/You/Documents/Hobot's Ascent/output.log

Linux: /home/you/.local/share/Hobot's Ascent/output.log
