My Mac hates Tweaks apparently

Trying to install the tweaks anthology on my EE versions of BG and BG2 and getting shafted by macOS. Here is the error code it's throwing at me:  "The file “setup-cdtweaks.command” could not be executed because you do not have appropriate access privileges."


I've gone into the file itself with "Get Info" and set the permissions to read&write for everyone but it's still throwing that code. Thanks in advance for any help!

So, open up Terminal.app, then type in


hit spacebar once, then go into Finder and drop the game folder into the Terminal window, this'll put the directory for it on your command line, making it look like this:

cd /path/to/game/directory

so, press enter, then smack this in to make the .command file executable (it's a flag on the file that gets toggled, marking it as executable):

chmod +x setup-cdtweaks.command

Hopefully that's clear enough, sadly I'm not familiar with any ways of doing this through some interface panel.

Thanks for the help! I did as instructed and here is the new fun message thrown at me:

It's not enough to make the .command file executable. You'd have to do that to the actual setup binary as well:

chmod +x setup-cdtweaks

This did the trick. Thanks!
