EDIT: Actually, I can't get into ANY shards now except the TOC_MOUL.

WTF?


Ok, I'm a bit lost now as it's been so long since I could get into Ghen. Could you give me a more detailed explanation of exactly what I need and explain about "the / image flag" please?
(I am running MacOS Sierra 10.12.3)
Ghen is the only shard I cannot get into ... it's crashes when it tries to get

GlobalClothing_District_FemaileGehnAdditions.prp

from the server.

Right-click the wrapper and select Show Package Content, launch Wineskin, then click on Advanced. The “/image” flag should be typed in the EXE Flags field.

There is also a Test Run button, which opens the logs after quitting the game.

crash.dmp is in Wrapper.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/users/Wineskin/Local Settings/Application Data/Uru - Gehn Shard/Log/, along with the other logs.

Apparently there’s an issue with compiling Wine 2.0 for Wineskin, without losing compatibility with OS X 10.6.

WOW. Thank you Korovev :D .

(Ok, its a bit flaky and crashes during play but at least I'm IN!!!. After all the constant crashes I've been having playing Obduction (Mac backers version) its almost "normal" gameplay for me!)

Just to let people know... I can now access all of the MOUL-based shards (Moula, Ghen, Minkata and TOC-MOUL).

I can not access ANY of the PoTS based ones (Deep Island, TOC-PoTS) or indeed get my Uru CC offline game to run.

I suspect that once we find a wrapper that works for one of the PoTS-based games then it will work for all of them.

I have no idea what to do next .... :oops:

Sierra 10.12.4 seems to have fixed the tPotS shards and offline games. All now working fine.

EDIT: Bizzare! It seems that you must have iTunes running in the background for the wrappers to work. WTF????? If you close iTunes and try to run the game you get the "serious error" dialogue box. :shock:

I just made a round trip of Gehn, Minkata, Deep Island, The Open Cave (both) and MOULa, and they all work fine for me, without iTunes on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Wine and wrapper versions are the same as before. Note that I always play windowed.

(FTR, this is a Gehn shard thread; the Deep Island one is here)
