started new thread for discussion of running Xlights/Nutcracker on MAC OSX
Copied from Dan Kulp thread http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php/topic,4555.15.html
I just integrated all the changes into my build (and cleaned up some of my stuff) and uploaded a new build for the Mac to:http://dankulp.com/xlights/xLights-MAC-3.1.1.tar.gzThis version should incorporate all their 3.1.1 changes PLUS my changes to import HLS hlsIdata files. It should also run on OSX 10.6.8 and newer.(it would be great to get my changes integrated into the main codebase to avoid having to keep merging things in and such)
A collection of xLights custom model files (*.xmodel) for various elements. Feel free to submit your own custom models here.

Add yours

  1. Below, click Add Listing -> Add New Attachment
  2. Choose the xmodel file you want to upload.
  3. In the text editor area, describe what the model is of, for example a 2-tier star, or a particular Boscoyo item.
    • Optional: You might also like to add an image preview of the model as separate attachment and link to it in this description field.
  4. In the category field below the text editor area, choose 'xLights custom models' (type xLights and select this in the drop down).
    • This step will add your xmodel to this page.
  5. Adjust the name of the file, if desired.
  6. In the 'save to' section please select the Elements area.

How to use custom models in xLights

Once you have downloaded one or more custom model files (*.xmodel)...
  1. In the 'Layout' tab of xLights, select and draw the model called 'Import Custom' (the last model option, next to Wreath) onto your house preview.
  2. In the 'Choose a model file' screen, locate the custom model that you downloaded and press Open.
  3. Adjust the model size & position as you would with built-in models.
  4. Repeat for each additional custom model you want to import.
