What operating system do you have?
max os x
I've got stockfish and SCID 4.5.2 and neither one has anything that will allow me to install, i have already unzipped the files and extracted them onto the desktop
if u can help u would save my life, all i want is to install scid and install an engine as well. I'm shocked there isn't more help for this online as it's very difficult to figure out or someone who is decent with computers. I guess all chess players are genius internet hackers or something. Where is my installation icon?
This might help: http://wes.skeweredrook.com/analyzing-chess-games-with-scid-and-stockfish-on-mac-osx-lion/
Don't use it here!
I'll try to help, although I've never touched a Mac in my life.
Don't you need a Scid file with a dmg file extension? It looks like they haven't made an OSX flavor yet for Scid 4.5.2 (the latest development version). I think you'd have to use the Scid-4.4_OS_X_10.7-10.8.dmg file, which is the latest stable version. Here's the link:
An alternate option would be to try Scid vs. Mac, which is a fork of the Scid project. It's very similar to Scid. You'd have to download the ScidvsMac-4.10.dmg file located here:
And I'm not sure which Stockfish you downloaded, but a good choice would be Stockfish 4 for Mac, link here:
There is also the Darwin/ Wine emulation layer for OSX, which should be able to run windoze executables, including Arena and an UCI engine.
