Ok, so I downloaded this game Assault Cube for Mac and it works fine and everything. But I have to delete this one file in the game folder to get new stuff in the game. The file is called securemaps.cfg. Whenever I move it into the trashbin, the message "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient priviliges for "securemaps.cfg" pops up. This is really frustrating because If I want to delete a file on MY computer I should be able to do whatever I want. Can anyone help me delete this file for good?
QUOTE Thanks

Try this ...

Deleting locked files
Locked files can easily be deleted if you press Shift-Option or Option key combination while emptying the Trash (in Mac OS X 10.1 and later). For Mac OS X versions 10.0 to 10.0.4, use Show Info to deselect the item's Locked checkbox.
