Hi I'm not sure if I'm doing this completely wrong but I can't seem to start the game at all..

I followed steps 1-6 (both for automatic install and automatic moving folder)

If everything is installed correctly the game has to run.

Do you get an error message?

Check if the game folder is at the correct location. And also if its named like mentioned in the description.
(See Option 3 for how to get into the wrapper.)
I think I was actually using the wrong one. It worked when I changed to 1.4 (even though my OS is yosemite)

Thanks a bunch! (I do have the no-sound problem though that I think a couple of others mentioned - not that that's a huge deal)
