CPU Intel Core Duo 1.83 Gh/s x86
GPU Intel GMA 950
Mac OS 10.6.8
I tried to launch Ren'Py, but it closes immediately. When i tried to launch terminal app from Contents of the main app, it shows
"Bad CPU in executable"
How I can fix this problem and launch Ren'Py?
P.S. I know that this MacBook is very old, this is temporary laptop. I need it to just continue my work.

My advice, until such a time as you can upgrade that laptop, is to try an older version of Ren'py designed more for that architecture.
Ren'py Release List
With that laptop being 2006, you could try a version near that age and, if successful, keep trying newer ones until you find the newest that still works.
Hopefully it will keep you designing until you upgrade.

I myself have a desktop (currently disassembled) I built back in 2008 that runs Ren'Py 126.96.36.199 no sweat.
The specs should also have very little issue running renpy and games produced with renpy.
The issue likely lies in the OS.
Intel Core Duo (T2400/T2500) used in MacBook 1,1 is a 32-bit CPU.
A wild guess is, that you try to use a recent Ren'Py compiled for 64-bit on a 32-bit CPU, therefore the "Bad CPU in executable" message.
As far as I can see, there's only a "Darwin-x86_64" folder in "lib" (but no 32-bit). Unfortunately I have no idea how to solve your problem (I never owned or used a Mac)...
