0011672: The df command does not work
opening the df command simply creates this text:
PWD=`dirname "${0}"`
#thanks to Iriel for figuring this out
OSREV=`uname -r | cut -d. -f1`
if [ "$OSREV" -ge 11 ] ; then
    export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=${PWD}/libs
    export DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH=${PWD}/libs
cd "${PWD}"
if grep -q '\[PRINT_MODE:TEXT\]' data/init/init.txt ; then
    ./dwarfort.exe "$@"
    ./dwarfort.exe "$@" &

Then nothing happens. Do i need an app to run this or is there a problem with the command line? i have nothing installed on my mac other than steam games and everything in the df folder because i just cleaned up my mac. I have tried to download the game again (vanilla version which i was using before)but same problem.
I should also mention last time i was using df, i accidentally unplugged my mac so it crashed. after that i cleand up my mac and then tried to launch df, but it didn't work.
delete everything outside the df folder and run the command. obviously don't.

Unfortunately we cannot see the screenshot on your computer. You'll have to upload it to an image hosting site, like imgur.com, and post the link to that.

Edit: or you can link to the discord upload: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/580417881385467914/797397529477775360/Screenshot_2021-01-09_at_09.31.30.png [^]

Anyway, your computer is openning the script for editting as a text file rather than running it as a script. On discord you say you "deleted terminal" - if you broke some thing with the OS you're gonna hav to sort that out. (https://discord.com/channels/329272032778780672/580417881385467914/797409876677623808 [^])

If you didn't break your OS, you could try redownloading and extracting the game. You could also try using one of the starter packs for Mac.

You need to open this file with a terminal, yes. Try right-clicking on it and selecting "open with" to see if "Terminal" is listed. If you've configured executable files like the "df" script to open in a text editor, or if you have deleted your Terminal application, you will need to undo those things somehow, but there is unfortunately nothing that can be done on the DF side to fix those things.
