You download a new version of a game, go to run it, and it won't run. Ugh.

Archivers like WinRar and 7zip don't preserve Mac and Linux executable permissions, so if a game is compressed with one of them it won't run until the permissions are restored.

This script will fix those permissions for Mac games and for Linux Ren'Py games.

Usage:
Launch the script.
On a Mac, drag the app to the terminal window that opens up and hit enter.
On a Mac or Linux you can type or copy/paste the path to the game.
You can also run it from the command line with the path as the first argument.

The script will run chmod -x on:
  • Contents/MacOS recursively
  • *.sh
  • lib/linux-i686 recursively
  • lib/linux-x86_64 recursively
Linux users, if you have another game engine you want added, please let me know what directories/files to chmod.
