Summary0009098: Game crash (window disappears) during launch following upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11) in PRINT_MODE:2D
DescriptionRunning the df startup script results in an unresponsive dwarfort.exe application with no windows. A small white window of appropriate size quickly appears and then disappears upon running the startup script in Terminal. Terminal output follows:

$ sh /Users/tanner/Desktop/df_osx/df
$ Loading bindings from data/init/interface.txt
2015-10-17 20:08:36.342 dwarfort.exe[984:240935] Warning once: This application, or a library it uses, is using NSQuickDrawView, which has been deprecated. Apps should cease use of QuickDraw and move to Quartz.
New window size: 640x300
Font size: 8x12
Resizing grid to 80x25
Resizing font to 8x12

Resetting textures

Output ends.

Script must be stopped with CTRL-C and application Force Quit.

Note: PRINT_MODE:2D is set in init.txt. Switching to PRINT_MODE:TEXT creates a working window inside of the Terminal console.
Steps To Reproduce(Upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan.)

Download fresh 0.40.24 DF for Mac.

Run file "df" in Terminal.
Additional InformationDwarf Fortress 0.40.24 worked perfectly on OS X Yosemite (10.10) but has consistently failed to open upon upgrade to OS X El Capitan (10.11).

Attempted fixes:
 - upgrading XQuartz (X11) from 2.7.7 to 2.7.8
 - upgrading GTK to most recent version
 - upgrading SDL and SDL_image to 2.0.3 and 2.0.0 respectively

No change in behavior or console output following each upgrade.

Confirmed with 0.40.23 as well.

Note: PRINT_MODE:2D is set in init.txt. Switching to PRINT_MODE:TEXT creates a working window inside of the Terminal console (though some text displays strangely).
TagsNo tags attached.

0002624 appears to be the cause.

Yeah, the description of 0002624 was outdated (I just changed that). I'm going to merge these since the issue and fix are the same.

Updating to SDL 2 won't work, since DF relies on SDL 1.x, but SDL 1.2.15 should work. I don't think SDL_image needs to be updated (yet); SDL_ttf does to fix 0007389 (or you can install X11/Xquartz), but be sure to get a version compatible with SDL 1.2 (i.e. SDL_ttf 2.0.x, not SDL2_ttf 2.0.x).

Terminal -> Preferences -> Settings -> Basic (or whatever theme you use) -> Text -> "Use bright colors for bold text" should fix the issue you were having with PRINT_MODE:TEXT
