Draft Dominator Download Guide for Mac

A guide to help Footballguys subscribers set up the Draft Dominator for Mac.

Greetings, and welcome to the all-new Footballguys Draft Dominator for Mac! Let's get your software up and running as quickly as possible. What follows are detailed instructions on how to download and install the Draft Dominator for your Mac desktop or laptop.

This guide assumes you have the latest operating system (El Capitan 10.11.5) on your Mac. The Draft Dominator can run on versions as early as OS X 10.9. However, having the latest operating system will ensure that your Draft Dominator works optimally. If you aren't sure what operating system you have, follow the steps below:

Click on the apple icon. The apple is located in the upper-left hand corner of the screen. Then click on 'About This Mac'.


On the Window that pops up, you will be provided with the OS and its version. This machine is running OS X, Version 10.11.5


If you determine an upgrade is needed for your machine, go here for further direction from Apple.

Step 1: Download

Navigate to the download page and click on the Apple icon to begin your Draft Dominator download.


The download dialogue you will see next will depend on the internet browser you are using. Google Chrome is the browser that was used in our guide. Chrome defaults to a specific download folder and will create a prompt that looks like this on the bottom of your browser screen:


For those using other browsers such as Firefox or Safari, please click the provided links for your specific browser for further instructions on how to change the download location of your file. Make sure to save the file to a place you will be able to find it, such as the desktop.

Step 2: Extraction

After the .zip file has finished downloading, click on the file within the bar to open it. The computer should automatically unzip the file into the download folder. It should create another folder within the downloads folder called ‘Dominator-darwin-x64’.

Click on the apple icon on the left hand corner of your screen. Select ‘System Preferences’.


Click on ‘Security and Privacy’.


The ‘General’ tab should open. If not, select it. Then click on the lock that appears on the bottom left of the menu.


Enter your computer’s username and password.


You should see the following window with three possible options.


Choose the ‘Anywhere’ option. Doing so will pop up the following dialogue box. Select ‘Allow From Anywhere’.


Return to the folder with the Dominator.app file. Click on the file once again. You may experience the following prompt. Click ‘Open.’


The application should open this time and look something like this:


Step 3: Cloud Setup

The application will suggest upon startup that you login to the My Footballguys Cloud so that you can regularly update the app, import league settings, and other things. Let’s do that now.

Select the login button on the top right of your screen.


Enter your username and password in the box that appears.


A successful login should look something like this:


Congratulations! You are ready to Dominate!
