  1. Only sure way I can think of, is setting to default. Then turn off ultra and try to set to default again, completely close Rum and then see if it’ll load properly. Or Enable Experimental graphics settings , the option right above graphics. I don’t have any idea how to replicate to work out a fix lol
  2. Setting - Under Ultra Mode, there are MANY options and adjustments you can make.. If anything, hit "set to default" and then start over... At least that's what I'm guessing is going on...
  3. Fantastic!!!! I love when things come together and you get back to Saving days and collecting badges and all the other goodies.. The reason I was so detailed and expansive, was to cover most issues that could potentially arise, Including the Mac Version of Mids and all the various dependencies and requirements to have a stable platform.. I tried to maximize only the essentials to limit the background sapping of sources.. My old iMac 2011, is my testing site... I've also found that, if you save the CoH folder in applications, and clear out wine and homebrew, with scripts and digging around folders, very minimal effort is needed to get up and running around, you can run brew, xquartz, and the scripts to get them aligned.. then Brew install winexe AND winestable.. Once finished, open winebottler, navigate to cityofheroes.exe in the CoH folder, have .net enable and boom, yet another way to get things sorted.. Its fun trying to minimize and simplify, Mac gaming can get a bit hella annoying sometimes... Good Hunting, and I'm thankful for your input!! -Cho
  4. Awesome. I love open source crowd projects. I recently, found a semi alternative fix as well. This is my latest post update in another sub forum here. Open Winebottler —Advanced- navigate to city of heroes.exe in the cell they provide, and check .net and MSHTML under, then Install(bottom left) JUST.... Incase .net didn’t get inserted along the way.. I’ve tested it on various MacOs, Sierra( tad different with (winestable) but above is absolutely spot in with Catalina. Lastly, here’s my Discord Chan, specifically to work out issues/walkthroughs if needed. Super small, they come and go as it’s sorted OsX Coh Installer w/help and Mids p.s. Later today I’ll apply your fix and hopefully it’ll skip some stuff, run smoother. Thanks mate! Choake
  5. Hey hey... I've had multiple successes with various MacOS from sierra-High Sierra - Catalina.. I have a pretty detailed step by step if you'd like to supplement, especially where wine tends to hide in your /User files making things challenging.. And as always, feel free to hit me up if you come across any issues.. Direct link to my forum post Good hunting mate.. Also, I usually open winbottler, search for CityOfHeroes.exe then install the .net just to make sure everything syncs up after brew etc... Here is an image of what i mean...
  6. Figured out the issue, i had it restricted for some reason, its now open to anyone with the link CoH 2 clarification bits.. resume_info.txt (fill in your userlogin name in the first line, and your password in the 2nd line) -- Auto fills out your prompts at login.. oh, delete username/password and replace with above(just to be as concise as possible) The CorvaUninstall.exe, is just incase you don't like the icons i modded.. they're all in the data folder etc... And the Fonts, the bak folder and the maybe folder, are ones i found work well in game, you just have to rename them(replacers) to mount_bold.otf and mount_demibold.otf.. They DO NOT change anytime in the coding of the game, it's more like a layover type deal, as are the sounds(DaftPunk 4 different loops in pocket, each room has a different song-I LOVE IT) Downloading - importing into the COH folder.. Copy each folder, MERGE, then replace when prompted, however, i'd do a backup of yours, just to be safe, incase you don't like the handymenus(i know you will) and the others bits.. Good Hunting Hopefully I got it sorted.. let me know if there's still any issues.. AltIcons Popmenu/HandyMenu
  7. Correcting it now. I’ll give you a poke when it’s finished. Sorry about that. 🤓🙈
  8. Let me check, been crazy busy with summer school.. i apologize Here's the link, it's working Gdrive
  9. Update! FIRSTLY IF POSSIBLE -- a 2+gigabyte USB/Flashdrive(to export keybinds, window setups, options, and a few others) if not just on Desktop on under your /User Folder tucked away to move back after the "complicated cleanup" is done... the MAIN server saves a majority, but vidiotmaps/custom environments/ are not included... I plan on adding a Pocket D Mix of DaftPunk songs, 4 in total, every room is a different mix(youtube video imminent) -- ALL DRAG AND DROP Summer Classes start in TWO weeks, Mostly Microsoft Comp++/Web authoring stuffs, anyways.. So I'll be Formatting both my High Sierra Macbook pro AND my iMac 27(ill post specs when im around the Device) with Catalina.. I recently bought el Gato, so i can record literally Step by Step in real time, on 100% fully factory reset Devices, (I double run the erase to remove the hanger ons that happen sometimes)... My Plan MacBook is mid 2015 -- Older system, so a few Extra steps are involved here, nothing complex but I have a feeling this is where the confusion is coming from vs more current MacOS Operating Systems iMac is 2019 -- With the catalina, a few of the "high sierra" steps are un-needed, so hopefully I can visually answer some puzzles you've eperienced.. It'll be fairly IDENTICAL to the 2 guides I posted, but this time you can see the placements, the storage, etc.. Technology can be a struggle, and I TRULY hope I can assist my Mac Gamer Folk in getting this to work.... ALSO!!! I'll be both getting New Mids to work, and showing the process to update the base program with the weekly release's they have been putting out.. Also, fairly straight forward once you see the motions needed and the proper steps to get there... I look forward to HOPEFULLLLLY getting everyone up to Challenge... .:By no means and I trying to Motivational speak with you:. but OldSkool NCdays, mac CoH was near impossible, it VANISHED for almost a decade, and now you have the opportunity to not only do some fun command line programming type stuff, but also, overcoming that internalized giving up imma break fear trigger, that comes with new things with expensive tech... Very RARELY do I get to say, even if it spits on 6errors relating to wine or Homebrew or xQuartz or whatever, you WILL NOT break the computer(unless you do in fact break it, and then you can upgrade to both THE prison, and Guards, known as APFAS(not important, but think of everything you do, taking 2-5 extra steps to just open a program, like a MacNanny McPhee, only less magic and more brickwalls to climb(lol joking but it's close) So I'll begin the clean install as soon as everything has cloned and been wiped clear, and it's like a newly birthed tech... And one last word... I do have a discord, not so mch for chit chattery or whatever, it's ONLY in reference to this forking path of misadventure, and see through walls, we find ourselves on... SO.... Feel free, to toss me a message in Discord, its both Text and Voice, and the Link is Perm.. https://discord.gg/acg9J96 This is a multy layed project, Fun, perplexing, sometimes WTF annoying, and other it just "works"... In closing, on High Sierra, from scratch, clean install 6 different times from literally filling out username etc... Catalina -- 3 times, also from barebones nothing installed to help, and overtime it's ran to perfection(not to brag, but I WILL HELP YOU get there!!!!) Kidding(sorta...) LOL After(below)/or BEFORE even beginning to start doing things....... 1.) Reboot your computer(powercord in ) and press Command CMD and R together(recovery mode)... 2.) MenuBar(top) look for utilities and open Command/Terminal(and OPEN TERMINAL) 3.) Copy THIS ->> sudo spctl --master-disable (also below for ease of copy/paste) PRESS ENTER...... THEN! sudo spctl --master-disable After that Above Followed By, - https://www.imore.com/how-turn-system-integrity-protection-macos -- also hit enter after enter below into command line works Prompt Window, I go a few steps further just by personal preference like a diagnostic test I suppose.... csrutil disable After the 2 Recovery Mode terminal projects, above, the "final" once booted from --> the Apple DropDownButton(top left screen and restart(PLEASE do SHUTDOWN)... Now we can being... DO NOT FORGET, All at once, Hit Command + Option + P + R (immediately after pressing power on, try for as little delay as possible, hold for 2 chimes, the system will reboot/spool up again, the 2nd generally is louder and has done it's job... P.s. Some laptops and imacs/etc have alternatives to the procedure 2 lines up, just minimal options, nothing complex.... So, Since that's out of the way.... I'd HIGHLY recommend Hitting up my GoogleDrive(most updated Vidiotmap text patchs, and a installer than completely themes/revamps ALL our standand power icon buttons we've seen for 15yrs... Also I tweaked a few ingame features, and I changed the Fonts as well, one is Patrick Hand Regular - Canted Comic Not intrusive/Flashy... j There are may many may more tips/tweaks and fun bits here and there, but justed wanted to update, as I've been working to mainline/simplify the process... Lastly, I'll give a look at the "addons" I have within my Direct Link to CoH core File Downloads. DaftPunk Pocket D music, Vidiotmap patchs, alternative fonts, handyPopmenus on and on CoH Folder, 1= AutoLog from character loading screen, another is an ingame "popup windows that capilizes on your Many Macro Bits, and even a much more complex Custom PopMenu with 20-50 powers in dropdown menus.. It's Glorious, I apologize for the large graphic, wanted you to see the Alternative Power/Inspiration etc Icons, the Map patches and the Font overlays... Last file/document type text file, think of this as AutoLogin. It's in your main CoH file, and everytime you load up, it autoFills your login into, without doing anything other than hitting "submit/Enter" First line is username/second is passwordresume_info.txt So, Hopefully up to now, I've been able to help in someway, and MAYBE a video tutorial, can fill the gaps... Thanks for reading my Stupid long post, and until next time... ALWAYS feel free to hit me up, no matter what the situation, from gameplay to installs, to life in general... Once again, here is my Discord link(permanent link) OSX CoH and HeroDesginer Build 101s MAC Hero Designer(and weekly patch update howto) - CoH install Help - and whatever else you may want.. Both Text and Voice are welcomed. Good Hunting -Cho
  10. for ease/better graphics, I use iterm2 instead of Mac's builtin Terminal, much easier to read... Ok.. Lets Start off by removing old homebrew installs and bits.. THEN, begin from scratch on that area.. Going to run TWO commands in terminal, just to make certain... First.. brew cleanup Second ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/uninstall)" In Finder, look up to menubar - Click GO -- Go TO FOLDER (manually removing any left over crumbs) I like to be diligent so errors or conflicts don't emerge..) Search each one at a time for anything WINE, Move to trash/Delete Same goes for COH stuff, from safemode times and island rum, different process but if needed I can walk you step by step for that in a reply if needed.. Basically, HOLD ON/BACKUP/SAVE These in the Coh folder directory for your personal settings/binds/windows options Empty TRASH and restart so we can get Rolling... FIRST Open Terminal and enter sudo spctl --master-disable Second.. In your Applications Folder, Make a FOLDER named COH.. Very different from the original way it was installed... Download and install Lets make sure all the dependencies are in place... Xquartz Wine - 5.x Newest direct link WineBottler - Catalina I don't need it/doesn't work, so it's ok if it doesn't IN TERMINAL.... /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)" let that run it's course.. then brew doctor then one by one.. Followed with brew update If you saved any of the COH files I shared above, copy them into the COH folder in Applications, AFTER running IslandRum Forum Direct DL Link P.S. I've ran these steps on High Sierra AND Catalina, and everything works, its just clearing out the old scraps left behind, and setting a blank slate.. Hopefully this helps.. -Cho
  11. I have a little free time if you'd like for me to walk you through... It seems harder than it is, it's just lines of code, and a few pieces of downloadable software... I made a discord channel so we can back and forth if needed...
  12. Here's another write up I made, it might clarify something I missed, that was my first Attempt at a HowTo Guide, I usually walk someone step by step one on one/voice... It's frustrating getting this to work out, I feel ya on that, So I'll type this up as if I've got it installed, am uninstalling it, making sure the pieces that are left behind get erased as well(some manual bits) and then how to reinstall and setup from scratch.. I'll be as detailed and concise as I can, I'll assume you have the new IslandRum they posted on the forums, and the other software I'm going to be referring too, Here's a link to my GoogleDrive with all the software and added bonuses in my data file Vidiotmap patch and such.. Especially since here I can make sure the coding formats properly, word documents aren't so great for that... Thanks for your time, and reading this lengthy walkthrough... FIRST Open Terminal(in finder CMD+Shift+U or Applications/Utitlites) sudo spctl --master-disable This disables a sometimes troublesome feature called GateKeeper, it has it's benefits, blocking unwanted "unknown" developers, but here it gets in the way... If you are concerned with anything in your global file, this is when you'd copy it out, and save for later... Now it's time to uninstall Rum and City of heroes... Open App Cleaner, Select Island Rum... Look to the Bottom right Corner Remove Service Files **Repeat the same for City of Heroes Now comes the sort of technical aspect, but it's super easy, just appears complicated and foreign... Most of this is going to take place in terminal, with one final part in Finder.. In Terminal, Run Brew uninstall Wine Brew uninstall Winetricks brew rm wine && brew rm $(join <(brew leaves) <(brew deps wine)) That one is just to be EXTRA deep cleaning Typically there are/can be remnants of Folders left behind, even after all that.. so now We're going to clear them out, optional but highly recommended.. Only manual erase part you have to do.. it won't destroy your computer, or break it 😛 From Finder, in the Menu bar, Click GO , scroll down and Select Go To Folder Enter Each one seperately and hit enter, you're looking for ANYTIHING wine If you find anything, send it to the trash and empty it... One last command to get everything scrubbed and fresh for Stability... (the split command earlier, I apologize) ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https:// raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/ master/uninstall)” Then comes the fun part of rebuilding... In Applications, create and Empty Folder CoH(if you moved the folder earlier data etc, you can place them back into this Folder before we begin install) Also unzip the new IslandRum, and Place in Applications. Install XQuartz, even though it says log off, restart instead, we've been modifying a Lot.. Once again Open Terminal, and copy these codes, so everything gets sorted properly.. Thankfully most of this is done with Installers now, but we're lucky and get to do it this way lol... xcode-select --/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)” Now to open and the Wine Apps, Wine Stable 4.0.3 WineBottlerCombo_1.8.6 YAY, only a few more lines of code for Terminal.... Each one by one. After ALLLLLL of this, now you can Open up Island Rum, we will be routing it into the CoH folder made in Applications... We need it to start the download process into that folder, so when we use Wine, it has something to Build on, Specifically CityOfHeroes.exe I chose to let the entire countdown complete, something around 132files... NOW, after seeing CityOfHeroes.exe(it's not ABSOLUTE to wait like I did) is the time to run Wine Stable and type in wine cityofheroes.exe With IslandRum, AND CoH folder with CityofHeroes.exe inside, this program will be able to locate it, and if everything lined up correctly, some prompts will appear, and something similar to this should occur... Seems like a lot, and daunting, but just one step at a time, and it'll work... When you see how Immaculate 64bit looks, you will be BLOW AWAY... Thanks for reading my miniBook.. -Cho
  13. I apologize I haven't had time to reply or look over your messages.. School has been CRAZY!!! I'll get to them tonight!! I'm so glad You're getting it sorted, it's been INCREDIBLE running at 64bit... One small step, I didn't need to do it on my fresh install of High Sierra, is perhaps Ruby... If so I can attach a walkthrough on how to install Ruby with Homebrew if needed.. Good Hunting all!! Cho
  14. Check at the Very bottom of your report... Outdated Wine.. wine 4.0.3 Direct link to the website, AND Wine Bottler as well If you rerun with those and my Shorter Step by Step, you should have better luck, it's exactly the same just as if it was actively being done... Simplified 64bit and Mids Upgrade for Mac.pdf
  15. This is The EXACT step by step I took in order to get all the systems going... The only snag I could image is with Operating Systems, but Wine 4.xx works on macOS 10.8 to 10.14 (Wine won't work on macOS Catalina 10.15), Directly from Wine's Own Site and no worries, there is a solution, but my understanding/resource is Homebrew and Wine 4.xx that makes the magic happen.. Multiple programs and ways can possibly achieve this.. **Had a few Emails asking steps and such, so I narrowed down the details, to ONLY what is needed... My guide is longer for the purpose of beginners, as many are written as if Experience is a Given, I tried hard not to do that, as Im just "The Troubleshoot Guy"..** It's frustrating getting this to work out, I feel ya on that, So I'll type this up as if I've got it installed, am uninstalling it, making sure the pieces that are left behind get erased as well(some manual bits) and then how to reinstall and setup from scratch..
