OK, I get it now. No one else would have access to my avatar files and although (in theory) any new or updated Age prp files COULD be made available (for manual installation into the Ghen shard install) the shard still can not be "played" until this Wineskin thing is fixed because of the constant changes being made to files during gameplay that cannot be updated from the vault on the fly.

I did manage to get a friend with a Windows install to send me the GUI_District_ xxxxxxx.prp files and so was able to get to the avatar selection screen...

but, of course, as soon as I select my Avatar ... and the loading screen starts to try and download the personal.fni file, it crashes.

I guess it's back to the waiting game for Wineskin .... :roll:

I can get in normally, it just takes a long time. Deledrius can get in with no delay.

Also, it seems that PlayOnLinux (on Linux) can be made to work too, with no delay.

There seems to be a wide variability in outcomes.

Do either you two gentlemen have any insight on the dxwebsetup issue? Did you manually install the DirectX components that are failing to install normally?

I don’t think I had to install DirectX (I thought it was installed along with vcrun2015).
In any case, from Advanced>Tools>Winetricks you could try installing d3dx9.

Keep in mind you’ll need a Windows-patched Gehn folder for the wrapper to work.

Are you guys both on El Capitan 10.11.2 or a previous OSX? Maybe thats the reason we are having different issues?

I was originally on 10.6.8, but have since updated to 10.11.3, and can get in without delay on both, using Korov'ev’s wrapper. I didn’t have to install anything additional into it, but I don’t remember whether the installers downloaded by Uru ran and worked.

Why can’t *I* get in without delay with my wrapper :roll: :lol:

Same here, I’m on 10.11.3. By the way, I’ve uploaded a second version with d3dx9 installed (the old one is still there). Yeah, it’s a big download.

Version 1.9.5 is out, though I haven’t notice any difference.

Here are the PlayOnLinux scripts for shards I mentioned after the AGM and in the Moula forums. They simply are Bash scripts with some special commands.
For Gehn with PlayOnMac, I think I need to use a different “mv -f *.dll ___” line.

Version 1.9.24. Running once with the /image flag, as suggested by Hoikas, might help getting past the patching phase.
