Title: Vanillabean's Tutorial on a different way of FH Installing (Mac)
Post by: Vanillabean on July 26, 2016, 07:39:25 pm
Hello!
So you're maybe here because the PlayOnMac setup didn't work.
Well, read on, and you may be in luck!
Also, if this topic is in the incorrect spot, please move it to the correct spot  ;)

ON TO THE TUTORIAL

So. You will need Wineskin Winery, and the FHSetup:
Click me! (http://www.mediafire.com/download/7b69j3pe2u6d9x0/FHsetup1.15.exe)
That's all.
DirectX is optional.

So.

STEP ONE)

Download Wineskin Winery.
Click me!...Again! (http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/tiki-index.php?page=Downloads)

Once it is downloaded also download FHSetup. Once Winery has finished downloading open the app. Winery downloads as an app, not a file. So no wait.

STEP TWO)

Open the app.
It will then show a window like this:
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.09.56%20PM_zpscyuehk4d.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.09.56%20PM_zpscyuehk4d.png.html)

Click the small + button. This will take you to another window:
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.10.52%20PM_zpsr3tb5hks.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.10.52%20PM_zpsr3tb5hks.png.html)
Select the latest version from the drop down menu. Click "Download and Install". This does not take up storage.
Click "Ok".

STEP THREE)

Then once the File Downloader has done it's job, it will take you back to the main Winery window.
Click "Create New Blank Wrapper."
Name it "FeralHeart".
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.15.36%20PM_zpscwvqqrrd.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.15.36%20PM_zpscwvqqrrd.png.html)
The Mac will Beach Ball for a few seconds. This is normal. Then a Winery will say "Wineskin Winery is currently busy. Please wait..."
Then a Wine window will appear. This is also normal:
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.17.15%20PM_zpsyja40un7.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.17.15%20PM_zpsyja40un7.png.html)
So then it will say "Wrapper Creation Finished". Click "View Wrapper in Finder".
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.17.43%20PM_zpsr6phjzog.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.17.43%20PM_zpsr6phjzog.png.html)

STEP FOUR)

You will then see FeralHeart. Right-click it and select "Show Package Contents". Double-click Wineskin. This will the show you to a panel. Select "Install Software":
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.18.34%20PM_zpsetpibfki.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.18.34%20PM_zpsetpibfki.png.html)
Go to Downloads. Then choose the FHSetup. Wait.

Then The FeralHeart setup will run.
(http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g52/iheartwolves/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.19.03%20PM_zpsv5ek0bel.png) (http://s53.photobucket.com/user/iheartwolves/media/Screen%20Shot%202016-07-26%20at%2012.19.03%20PM_zpsv5ek0bel.png.html)
Select "Light" when installing. Then will make FH crash not as often.

Then there you go!
To install maps, items, all them goodies, right-click FeralHeart. Show package contents. Click on drive_c>FeralHeart and BAM there's all them files.
Hope I helped! :D

The Game Help board is not quite the place to post your tutorials, rather a place for seeking assistance, so I will move your thread over to the Member Made Tutorials >> Miscellaneous board for you. Please post all guide/tutorial threads in one of the Member Made Tutorials boards instead of creating them in the Help Boards to prevent users from being confused and so that your thread will be easier for people to find. c:

I have tried to do this about 3 times but every time I open Wineskin after I open the contents of the wrapper and go to choose the setup .exe it says ...

"No new executables found! Maybe the installer failed...? If you tried to install somewhere other than C: drive (drive_c in the wrapper) then you will get this message too. All software must be installed in the C: drive."

I have no idea why it's talking about installing stuff in the C: drive when all I'm trying to do is choose a setup .exe?

It's asking where you downloaded the .exe to.

If it was put in the wrong spot[Not sure how it wouldn't BE on the C: drive] it won't be able to find it. I believe it's trying to find the proper install address; looks something like this:
C:\Users\warri\Desktop\Media\Knight\40k


If this method doesn't work, just try the 'normal' way. This is just an alternative as far as I know.

S-H-A-Y also has tutorials, I'll dig 'em up if you need.

When I go to choose the FHsetup1.15.exe after clicking Install Software it literally refuses to show up in the C drive that's attached to the wrapper (drive_c) even though it's right there in the Mac C drive. I've also tried probably 10+ ways with trial and error to get it to use the .exe but none of them have worked. If I ever get close to a solution that error message comes up again or it opens a new finder tab with drive_c open the process repeats. I don't know why but this has also happened with EVERY other method to download FH I've tried which all up is about 4 different methods, all of which went smoothly up until I had to choose the setup exe. I've been trying nearly weekly over the past month, it seems like my Macbook just doesn't want it to work. I think I'm gonna give up and wait until I get a PC that runs windows because half the games that I've tried to run on this Macbook Air will not work either. Thank you anyway.

Thank you so much! I have been trying for years for FH to be working on my Mac Book Pro 13in! This tutorial was very helpful! The game works and everything but when I log in and choose a character it takes forever to actually get into the game.

I can't seem to get this to work ;n; Is there a video tutorial on this or something? I think I'm missing a step or missing something. It keeps saying 'No executables found' or w/e whenever I try to instal the game.

Hm...
Well sometimes you just got to keep trying, and if it keeps showing that message, I'll try to make a video tutorial.
