CoH Homecoming just not working on my Mac...

Hello friends! Looking for some help here. Last week I was able to play Homecoming on my laptop. Today, I cannot. I've uninstalled and re-installed BOTH the CoH Launcher and Island Rum. They seem to get installed just fine. I even get the little "ding!" sound. But, when I click the icon for the CoH Launcher or the blue arrow in Island Rum, my computer thinks about it for a bit and just does nothing. Any thoughts, suggestions, incantations, ideas, etc would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm guessing you've Also restarted the Mac during all of this and looked at the other troubleshooting threads? Beyond that, may want to check the Launcher Discord for quick replies (GMs, etc). If for some reason you've not though, backup your folder elsewhere, delete the original (links and all), and try installing directly from Manga's page. It would also be good to know what mac we're dealing with.

Catalina? Weird as I've not had issues on that os recently. Mostly just the Big Sur/M1 after the 11.6 update.

I downloaded from the Manga's page link you provided, I did all the things until I got the successful "ding," then tried to open the application "Launch CoH." It starts up the "WIne Installer," thinks about it for a bit, then it shuts down "Launch CoH" as though nothing ever happened. Bizarre.

 

I know at this point I'm just rambling and I appreciate anyone who's still reading. Ha!

There was a bug a year ago where it would "edit" the .sh file it uses to launch the game when you click the blue arrow in Island Rum and add a few random characters.

Making the file read-only was a work around.

This created the same behaviour as you describe: starts Wine, then doesn't understand what to do next.

 

I don't have time to go and debug now, but maybe something like that is happening here as well. There are a few files that get rewritten by Island Rum every time before it tries to start the game, to give Wine the correct install location to find the files.
