Okay, I have got AofA working and have now completed it after a manual install on my iMac. Great fun and excellent graphics on the 27" screen, and I am now trying to install war in Heaven. I have downloaded the relevant 7Z files which I believe are;
FS2_Open 3.6.17 BP Mac
I followed the instructions to uncompress the files into the Freespace 2 folder, set the flags as sugested and fired up the launcher. I got into the game, through the player selection etc, I chose the campaign (choice WiH1, WiH2, and one other) and the cutscene started to show the Europa station before crashing back to the launcher with a state of -1 (as it says at the bottom of the Wx launcher window). I have the logfile if that would be useful.
Those who have Macs know a peculiarity of them is that when you uncompress something into a folder, if there is a folder to uncompress, of the same name as an existing folder, it can create a new folder with a similar name, and unzip into that rather than add to an existing folders contents, so I am completely confused about what goes in what folder top get WiH running. I am fairly convinced that I have all the right files, but something has moved to the wrong place
So, I restored my freespace2 folder back to its original form (I think) which still runs AofA (checked that) and it looks like the screenshot below;
Could someone clarify what goes where as when I try to decompress the 7Z files straight into the Freespace2 folder, something isn't right.
Thanks very much for the patience.
