All you should need is the data from the latest version of tbp,, the zathras updates, wxlauncher, and the native os x .app, either 3.6.18 or 3.7.0, whichever zathras is currently stable with.  You can go ahead and install FS2 as well, but definitely don't put them in the same folder.  If zathras works with 3.7.0 now, you won't need inferno anything.

Ok so it works with the FS2 Open launcher (3.7.0) and Inferno 3.6.12 (I had 3.6.10). Should I still use Inferno over the other one?

BTW If anyone who was involved in making this game is reading this, kudos to you, this is so amazing amount of work! I am speachless.

The Inferno builds stopped being a separate thing way back in... 3.6.14, I think. Plus, 3.7.0 uses an entirely new pilot code. No, you should not prefer a massively outdated executable over the newest stable release.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Where do you put FS2_open-inferno.app?

You should probably be using a newer non-Inferno build on OS X to play TBP, with the latest Zathras patch.  The recommended build should be in the Zathras release post.
