[Mac OSX] New installation, crashes after pilot select
Hello everyone - this would technically be my first post here, but I've been playing FS2 Open thanks to a friend for about two years now.  So, after I got my new computer, I certainly wanted to stress-test it using FS2 - but apparently some issues need ironing out first.

Platform: Apple Mac (Intel)
OS: Mac OS X 10.5.5
Issue: Now that I'm trying Freespace 2 Open on my new computer, it instantly crashes after a pilot is selected.
Troubleshooting steps taken:
- Ran FS2_Open_Debug, which showed nothing useful in the crash log (can be posted upon request when I get home from work tonight)
- Installed OpenAL from Creative's website (for Mac OS X).  No sound yet, and crash still occurs.
- (new) pilot name deleted, new one created - same result.

Original installation on this new computer performed through Turey's .jar installer.
This game (installed and run the same way) ran rather nicely on my old Powerbook G4 - the same setup appears to be misconfigured, or missing something critical, but I can't figure out what.  Any and all advice is appreciated.

Re: [Mac OSX] New installation, crashes after pilot select
Did you just run Turey's Installer on your new Mac? If yes, you are missing the retail files, since they are not provided by the Installer (anymore).

If you have a working FSO installation on another computer, you can brutally copy the entire \freespace2\ folder to your new computer. Then just acquire the latest Mac build (and possibly the Mac Launcher) and gaming can commence.

Well, that's the problem - this is restored from a backup.  Using Turey's installer for updates was used after copying over from the last known backup was done - but straight installation of OpenAL and play of FS2O with mediavps (using the same process as on this computer) worked fine on my Powerbook (PPC, G4).

This same process results in the issue listed in the OP on my new Intel-based Mac - it appears to work alright, until a player is selected - once that is done, the game promptly crashes without an error.

Now that I'm home, here's the contents of the fs2_open.log from my Intel-based Mac after running the FS2_Open 3.6.9 Debug:

Re: [Mac OSX] New installation, crashes after pilot select
Hmm. The log was generated by 3.6.9 debug, which partially implies that you've also tried to play with 3.6.9. Have you tried the latest nightly Mac build? Also,

These are some random useless retail files. They probably won't do any harm but they are not needed in any way. You can remove them.

I downloaded the nightly build for OSX (and the 3.6.10 mediavps while I was at it), and switched the bit depth to 32bit.  After that - it works, problem solved.  :D


My thanks to you - I'm glad to have this game working on this computer.

Ah, good to hear. I was afraid there'd be some more fundamental problem.
