  2. I am on a Mac running Catalina, and I had been playing fine for months with Island Rum 020920203. I took a couple months off from playing, and when I came back, Island Rum hangs at: I am used to that, so I click the palm tree and select "Re-scan". But now it hangs with about 90% progress bar at: The manifest it is referencing is Homecoming https://path.savecoh.com/manifest.xml I thought i'd start fresh, so I downloaded the latest version of Island Rum, but now, OSX gives me this error message: I searched the forums, but couldn't find anything relevant.
  3. Install City of Heroes: Homecoming on Mac Catalina (August 8th, 2020) Open a Terminal Window Applications->Utilities->Terminal Install Homebrew (a utility that installs other utilities) /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)" Install xquartz (some video thing) brew cask install xquartz Install wine (a Windows emulator) brew cask install wine-stable Download "Island Rum" (this is an application that downloads the City of Heroes app) http://telstar.eekstudio.com/islandrum-mac.zip Unzip islandrum-mac.zip Copy "Island Rum.app" to Applications Run "Island Rum" It probably won't work. If it doesn't, click Settings->Security->General->Open Anyway That should launch it It will hopefully say "Client not detected. Install or cancel?" Go with "install" Wait a good long while. It will download the game to "/Applications/CoH" Try the "Play" button If it works, you're done, have fun. It probably won't work. Shut down Island Rum Back to the terminal cd /Applications/CoH wine64 "/Applications/coh/hc-bin64/cityofheroes.exe" -patchversion 20200628_1602 -auth -patchdir homecoming Some Windows popup will notify you about wine configuration being updated It will ask to download some "Mono" thing. Let it. It will ask to download some "Gecko" thing. Let it. If you got this far, it should load up City of Heroes! Oops, we forgot to make accounts. Visit https://forums.homecomingservers.com/register/ and make a forum account Then make a game account here: https://forums.homecomingservers.com/gameaccount/ Ok, now log in to the game (with the game account, not the forum account) and start "arresting" the bad guys! (Don't be a villain, you're better than that) Note: If the line for the launcher isn't working, there's a launch script in /Applications/CoH called islandrum.sh. The last line should have the right launch command if you remove the "/bin/sh -c" and quotes.
  4. Okay, please be patient with me as I am going to try to list everything I have done to get this game to work with no avail. Some background: I was running the game for close to 4 weeks when all of the sudden I got the "two black windows"--reference photos below. This happened after no OS upgrade, I changed nothing on my computer except the wifi it was connected to, which is my own router. Here are my specs **30April2020** macOS: Mojave 10.14.6 MacBook Pro(Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) Processor: 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 Graphics Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB Applications currently installed: Island Rum(v. 040520202) Wine Stable 5.0 Wine Bottler Homebrew -winetricks Things I have tried already: Forums posts in which I found these solutions attached. Clean Install. This includes removal of: homebrew, island rum, CoH folder, uninstalling winetricks (Forum post) Removing the ~/.privatewine folder and letting it re-create itself (Forum Post) Removing the .wine and .private wine libraries. (Forum Post) So my problem at first was this screen: After much randomness, and reinstalling the game 3 different times, this is now my problem: Keep in mind this screen only comes up after i delete the ~/.privatewine folder. If I do not delete the folder I dont get a "wine64-preloader" and the launcher just goes from a green check back to normal. **01Apr2020** UPDATE: I upgraded to Catalina 10.15.4. I removed Wine-Stable, Winetricks, Winexe, Homebrew, and the old Island Rum. Reinstall the new Island Rum and the new files associated with it. Here is what my "coh" folder looks like. Currently my problem is that I am still getting the "wine64-preloader" hangup. I am really out of options at this point. I have exhausted all forum posts and there seems to be no comprehensive guide, which is understandable because Macs stink for gaming-but it is what I am working with. I was hoping this post can serve as a step by step guide for those who are not so tech-savy such as myself to get this game back up and running. I appreciate any and all advice. I understand this is a purely volunteer ran
  5. Hi friends, posting about an issue I've had a couple of times on Mac where the audio is broken and begins crackling. In the past I've ridden this out and subsequent updates eventually resolved it; however it is currently still broken for me. For fellow mac users, I figured we can use this thread to provide more debugging information to help devs create a fix for this. System Details: macOS Mojave 10.14.6 2.4GHz Intel COre i7 16 GB RAM Audio Format: 48,000 Hz My strong suspicion is that this may be a wine issue, specifically the file "winecoreaudio.drv" which is the driver for wine. Beyond this I am a bit out of my depth. However, I found a solution that works for the time being for me: 1. Open "Audio Midi Setup" app on your Mac (this should be in utilities, but you can also just use finder) 2. Select "Built-in Input/Output" from the menu on the left in the app 3. Change the Output from 48,000 Hz to 44,100 Hz (48,000 Hz appears to be the Mac default--I checked 3 different Macs) So far I haven't noticed any audio degradation from doing this in game or other applications, but again if anyone else has these issues let me/devs know please! x DK
  6. Can anyone help me build or tell me a way to download CoH on a Macbook the old guide was helpful but it would seem island rum has been updated and wineskin doesn't seem to be there anymore so the download instructions can be hard to follow.
  7. With the roll-out of the new version of the Homecoming client, some Mac users are having difficulty with setting up the new version of Island Rum required to launch the 64-bit client. Unfortunately, the GM team is a little short on people with Mac experience at the moment, so we're having trouble supporting everyone coming to us with issues. Post here if you're having trouble, being sure to share what exact problem you're having and what you've done so far to try to fix it, and if you're a Mac power user with a good understanding of the installation process, we'd appreciate it greatly if you could provide some help.
  8. Hello, I'm running Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5 with a nVidia GeForce GT 650M 512MB graphics card and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536MB embedded graphics card. I've got 8GB of DDR3 Memory and an Intel Core i7 2.3GHZ processor. The settings are completely unavailable to me for some reason even though my specs should be able to support it. Any ideas if this is Mojave related or Client related? Here's a screenshot of my mac specs
  9. I'm not pretty tech savvy when it comes to downloading things like this, but I've tried my best so far & would appreciate a little assistance. I tried following the steps to downloading the game on Mac, I have Island Rum installed. The file is located in my 'Applications' folder, still named 'Island Rum'. I have clicked the play button once it says 'Ready To Play', it will then say 'Launching Homecoming 64 Bit' or 'Launching Homecoming', as i have tried both, but then nothing happens. Can someone explain to me as simply as possible (lol) what I might have done wrong in the process? I know the installation for Mac said somewhere about selecting 'File' & changing the name of something to 'CoH', which I haven't done because I'm not sure where I'm supposed to do this. Also, do I have to do anything with regards to this HomeBrew page? Any help appreciated! Thanks!
