FreeTrainSDL on Mac OSX

FreeTrain compiles on OSX using Mono 1.9 and MonoDevelop 1.0.
  • Download the latest from and install.
  • Download SdlDotNet OSX installer from Make sure to install the SDL libs from the package.
  • Checkout FreeTrainSDL from SVN. I use RapidSVN. SCPlugin and SVNX are also good choices.
  • Open Monodevelop and open the FreeTrain sln file
  • Compile solution
  • From the terminal, run
  • Use the Finder to locate the "FreeTrain" application in the root of the svn checkout.
  • Double-click on it to start. For me, it hangs while loading plugins. I did get it to run once but it was abysmally slow.
  • Still working on it.

Re: FreeTrainSDL on Mac OSX

I'm very interested in the status of this as well. I tried to compile it on OSX 10.5.5, installed the pre-requisites, but had errors. I'd very much love a DMG installer of this! FreeTrain looks incredible!
