Mac/Linux Setup Updated for 1.16
« on: June 10, 2016, 09:49:16 pm »
I'm disappointed to see complaints about no presets, maps, items, packs, etc
DON'T JUST FOLLOW THE PICTURES READ THE THREAD
I put a good amount of time into it. If you read it all! It should answer everything!



If your expecting something similar to the old Mac version I'm afraid I'm going to disappointed.
I don't own a Mac and its always been an issue getting access to one.
I do however use Linux and luckily PlayOnLinux has a Mac Version PlayOnMac.
PlayOnLinux still uses "WINE" to run programs which is the same thing the old versions were made with.

So down to business.

Im going to assume as Mac/Linux user you know how to install things on your own operating system.

Mac users only you need XQuartz download and install from here https://www.xquartz.org/
If you are still running Leopard you need the old version here https://www.xquartz.org/releases/XQuartz-2.6.3.html
If your Mac is older than that I'm afraid your out of luck....

You now either need PlayOnLinux or PlayOnMac

https://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html
https://www.playonmac.com/en/download.html

Download my PlayOnLinux Install Script from here https://static.feral-heart.com/FHunix.POL.zip and extract it.

Now just follow the steps :)


The first screen :D


Tools > Run a local script


Next


Browse


Pick the POL Script you downloaded earlier.


Next


As its a custom script I've made its not signed by the PlayOnLinux team this is perfectly safe


Again because its not signed you need to accept and next


Next


Next


If it runs slow reinstall using the light option.


Install


Finish


Now you can double click and run the game (note it might take 2 runs to make it work due to switching between directx and opengl)


If you highlight FeralHeart you will see this list on the left the "open the directory" option might be handy to get to the exports presets etc.

Now you have FeralHeart on your Linux/Mac computer

Enjoy

Raz

Thank you Raz for this. Even though I don't use a Mac, it will come in handy if I ever get one, and it will also help a lot of Mac users.

I'm still not sure how to get the FHunix.POL, every time i try to use the websetup it tells me there is no source code for the script and I can't continue from there.
I'm sorry since it looks like you worked really hard to make this tutorial, and if it weren't for the script thing this would of been a real big help.
