  1. First, consider migrating to the Homecoming Launcher for Mac: https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/mac-installer.zip If you would rather keep using Island Rum, though, I've removed the certificate from the pre-Catalina version. You might have to re-download it: https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/islandrum-mac.zip
  2. 1. Make sure you have the newest Mac Installer from https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/mac-installer.zip 2. If you Get Info on your CoH folder, what do the permissions look like?
  3. Anyone who is still seeing alerts similar to either of these, you have permission issues! I have altered the Mac Installer so it now attempts to fix this permissions issue as well. You can download it here: https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/mac-installer.zip
  4. Bear with me if you're having difficulties - there are a few instances where permissions issues have stopped the installation, and I'm still trying to work out a reliable way to overcome it. Once I do that I'm going to attempt to build it right into the Installer. I also work full time though (not for Homecoming - that would be awesome, but unfortunately it doesn't work that way), and sometimes two jobs in one week. So if there are long gaps in my reponses or fixes, that's probably why.
  5. Don't use those garbage cleanup utilities. The only thing the HC Launcher and Island Rum create are everything inside the /Applications/coh folder, /Applications/Island Rum.app, /Applications/Launch CoH.app, and the ~/.privatewine folder. XQuartz is installed too as part of the process, but don't worry about removing that, as you can reinstall right over it, and it doesn't really have settings.
  6. If you get one of these, try moving the /Applications/coh folder somewhere else and then running the installer. Let it create what it needs to, and then let the HC Launcher install and download what it needs. After that, copy your extra files back (costumes, etc).
  7. Any of you having trouble with an M1 Mac and Island Rum, try using the Mac Launcher Installer: https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/mac-installer.zip The installer cleans up before install so that it can do its own clean install. It also attempts to fix permissions issues. The only thing it doesn't do is it's not signed, so you might have to go to the Security panel and approve it for opening. Since Homecoming is going to eventually gently herd everyone away from the legacy patchers, it makes more sense to improve and support the Launcher Installer.
  8. @WanderingAries PM me, and I can talk you through replacing the Wine client with Wine-devel, and we'll see if that exhibits different behavior. If that test doesn't work out, then it might just be something we have to wait for the Wine or XQuartz team to get around to fixing (the Wine-devel test would see if they're already working on it!).
  9. The Launcher Installer includes both a stable version of Wine and an Xquartz installer. I don't think Wine actually even uses Xquartz, but it has a dependency, so it has to be installed anyway. You don't actually have to uninstall Homebrew or Wine-devel unless you want to save disk space. The CoH Launcher has been designed to use its own working folders and settings folder, so they won't interfere with each other. I did that on purpose so if Wine releases an update via Homebrew that causes devastating problems with CoH, the CoH Launcher and Island Rum can completely ignore it.
  10. @WanderingAries If you're using my Launcher Installer (it looks like you are) it's not really necessary to install Wine or Homebrew anymore - it has a current version of Wine included in the package, which installs to the /Applications/coh/wine folder. I haven't had access to an M1 Mac yet due to severe budget issues, though, so if you tested it with Wine-Devel and found it to work better, I can swap the Wine version included in the installer. I've been meaning to update it anyway so I can finally sign it. And I also heard about the mini-window issue, I don
  11. It shouldn't ask for a path at all, but if it insists, it's going to be Z:\Applications\coh Some people are having permissions issues where the launcher is unable to access the files it needs. You could try the following: - Select the /Applications/coh folder in the Finder - Press Cmd-I or use the Get Info command from the file menu. - Click the padlock in the bottom corner, and type in your admin password. - Change all 3 access types at the bottom to "Read and Write". - Pull down the widget below it and select "Appl
  12. If anyone is getting this, the correct path is Z:\Applications\coh\Launcher
  13. Anyone who had issues using Method 2: Download it again. It's been replaced with a new installer that will try and set the correct coh folder permissions whether you like it or not! That should put an end to the Launcher being unable to write to its folders.
  14. I'm still not sure why some Mac players are getting permission issues like that, where the CoH folder basically becomes invisible to Windows apps. I'm following a few people with this issue to see if I can find something that works.
  15. I have tested Island Rum for Mac with the new Homecoming Launcher, and have designed two different ways that Mac players can use it. The first has been well tested; the second is in early testing stages, but should work considering that it's far simpler. Method 1 1. If you don't have Island Rum installed yet, download it from https://islandrum.eekstudio.com/ and extract and install it. 2. After Island Rum downloads the Game Client, stop the initial file download by clicking the red X. 3. Open the tree menu and select Manifests, and then
