Default GI_Joe for OS X?

I read somewhere here that to get GI_Joe to work in os X, you had to change a couple things. Is there anyone out there that has a working copy of GI_Joe on OS X? Would like to upload it to SM or even upload it to me? I would like to get it, cuz it seems to output pretty crazy renders. Thx ppls

GI_Joe works fine on OSX. Just make sure you follow the directions exactly. You need to change line 57 in GI_Joe.mel to point to GIJoe.lights in your scripts directory. The line should look something like this:

Code:
string $pathL = "/Users/danny/Library/Preferences/AliasWavefront/maya/scripts/GIJoe.lights";
I used BBEdit to modify the mel script since it has line numbering built in. However, any text editor should work just fine.

The rest of the directions works just fine. Also, if you want to use the shelf button icon, you need to convert it to an XPM file using GraphicConverter. Maya for OSX does not recognize other image formats for shelf buttons. To save you some time, I've attached it to this post.

Here's the zip file. Apparently, attachments disappear if I edit a post. :p
