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
I saw the MacOS guide, but haven't seen anything for Linux. Wondering if there are any guides to getting Mid's Reborn running in Linux? Or if someone would make one? Preferably for a lighter weight distro that would run well in Virtualbox. If I could easily run Mid's in Virtualbox, then I can work on builds on work computers (....of course only during lunch. 🙂) But as a Linux noob I found it challenging to get Wine, Winetricks, .NET4.7.2 all properly installed, and then get Mid's working. Seems like this would be useful to the community. The situation is much better now that it's on Github, but I've frequently seen it mentioned that folks are reluctant to install Mid's because of security concerns about 3rd party code. Having a straight forward way to run it as a sandboxed Virtual Machine would alleviate any worries.... Anyway, if no one else makes a guide, I'll eventually get around to making one myself. But having spent several largely unsuccessful hours already, I can promise you it will be better if someone knowledgeable in Linux does it. 😉
