DRL not working, stuck at black screen (Macbook Air 10.14)


I nstalled the Mac OS version of DRL. Everything seems like it's where it's supposed to be. When I run the game's .app file, it opens a new window and displays a yellow loading bar with a red border. I'm pretty sure that's supposed to happen. However, when it finishes loading, it goes to a black screen and doesn't change. Does anyone know what causes this and/or how to fix it? Also, here is the log.txt of my DRL app after running it:

Kornel Kisielewicz:
Apple broke OpenGL with one of the recent macOS releases. As OpenGL is now unsupported anyway, this isn't trivial to fix. Possibly a port of the game to SDL2 would help, but I don't have currently the time to do it, nor a semi-modern macOS box to test whether it works (my Macbook Pro is of the 2011 era, and can't install newer OSes anyway). The source is open, and I hoped someone would fix it, but as for today, noone did :/.

If we manage to get Jupiter Hell to 1.0, afterwards I'll definitely try to find the time to fix the macOS port. However at the moment there's not much I can do. Blame Apple -_-.

We have a fixed version right here:
