A few mods having trouble with Mac?


Aureol

Recommended Posts

I have successfully installed a few mods, but some of them won't work (the game won't load; rather, the icon bounces infinitely, with the application "not responding"). These mods so far are BG2 Fixpack v.9 (both Windows and Mac versions) and BG2 Tweaks. I installed them in this order:

 

Mac ToB patch

Ascension

BG2 Fixpack (wouldn't work; skipped later)

Oversight

Unfinished Business

Alternatives

BG2 Tweaks (Mac version wouldn't work; might try Windows version)

 

Any reason why? Do I need to share more info?

 

Also, unrelated issue, but I'm trying to play an (unmodded) game with someone, but the TCP/IP option doesn't work, and Gameranger crashes whenever I try to play BG2 on it. I would prefer to resolve the Gameranger issue, but I'll take other multiplayer ideas instead. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks for everything in advance!

Why not install BG2 Fixpack before any other mods? I've installed all those mods successfully on my PPC G4 Quicksilver, under Mac OS X 10.4.11, and they've behaved as they should. Would you mind giving more detail as to the failures you've experienced. The more detail you can supply, the easier it will be to determine the issues and hopefully solve them. For multiplayer, are you choosing "Connect manually"?

Thanks for the quick reply :)

 

As for BG2 fixpack going first, I installed it, and the icon still just bounces up and down, and the application goes unresponsive (the game itself doesn't boot). Here's the WeiDU log if it helps at all:

Then multiplayer, I tried Connect Manually, set up a game, but the other person was unable to join (I believe the game eventually locked up), and with Gameranger the game starts (screen goes black) but immediately quits.

Perhaps it will help if you skip Super Happy Fun Lucky Modder component of BG2 Fixpack. What kind of system are you using, anyway?

Well, the game does work without mods, and actually turns out the mod does work with the game; it's just that it takes a significant amount of time (roughly 2-3 minutes) to load, so I thought it was failing me. It'd be nice to fix the 2-3 minute wait, but at least the game works, so I can't complain. So, I'm gonna go through all those mods again and see if I can wait a little longer, then have it work. I will report later.

 

EDIT: As for my computer system, I am using Mac OS X Ver. 10.6.8, not sure what else to say.

 

EDIT 2: Now I am having difficulty with SCSII. It is having a few errors. In the manual install, it says:

It does this, with either OS X or Windows version of SCSII, on modded and clean installs. What does it mean? :?

That worked as well, thank you very much! All my mods appear to be in working order, but now the game takes at least 4 minutes to load (I timed it).

 

Also, both in the modded and clean versions the game lags bad. I can't name all the situations, but when characters move in-game and in spell selection during character creation are two instances. I fiddled with turning on/off 3D acceleration, but otherwise I wouldn't know what to try.

 

The weird thing is, the Windows version I had worked on this computer fine, mods and all (but I got sick of the instability of Wine on Mac, so I got a Mac version). What can I do for this?

Thank you very much, biffing completely removed the ridiculous wait! But I am still having issues with in-game lag and mouse lag, as well as saving stalls (which sometimes lock up the game). But this was on the unmodded version too, so it's not any mod. I have 3D acceleration off; anything else?

We just have to live with the long loading times, when we install several mods (I've been trying to get an install of over 130 mods to work for years, but no luck so far in a successful installation where everything works together). You'll probably see the longest load times when you load a saved game. Biffing might be a time-saver, but it can also cause issues of its own (like not being able to troubleshoot as thoroughly and successfully). Run the game with Party AI turned off as much as possible. The lags are mostly various scripts being run, and there's no way to speed that up, to my knowledge. You can also test some of the graphics options and other settings in BGConfig, and check your video card's settings.

That's unfortunate. Thanks though! You all have been so helpful!

 

Lastly, anyone know how to get multiplayer to work on Mac? I finally got Gameranger to not crash on us, so the game boots properly through Gameranger, but we still fail to connect. Any tips?
