I believe it's more prone to do so on MACintosh because it wasn't oriiginally planned to be on there and it's a bit of a weird port.


Well... it was planned, problem was that we couldn't access the source code for the one for mac.
And that's why it's so... Spotty. Well, among the fact that it's also MAC.

well whaddya know

Ok I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right because everything has gone smoothly so far. The only problem is that when I try to actually open the game through PlayOnMac, it says there was an error and the game crashed. This is probably because the files are  very outdated and probably should be updated if the staff is still around in this game since I haven't seen any recent updates.

I suggest on looking into DEBUG. I will help you with this if ya need

Hi MapleCake, i too run a Macbook Air. and it does have its issues, without OpenGL and the whole wacko thing that FH is mostly run on PC... but please be sure to go into Ogre.CFG and switch the top in brackets [ ] from OpenGL to Direct3D9 ((VICE/VERSA))

Hey so I've got the game up and running and everything but it keeps telling me it has failed to connect to the front server. Has anyone had any issues with this? If so how did you fix it?

Very common,  Check this thread. (clickable link should be those underlined words)

Looks like you last posted on the forums (that i know of) back when there wasn't an extra security step in place, hence i pointed this out.
If you are what you eat, them most people eat artificial food. i grow my own by the way.

To go with  Kuri and Kora's posts, for you Kora mon cher, also once logging in through the security thing, please wait a couple of seconds until you log in to the game. :) Patience is one of the many keys to a happy life.

If it is crashing, you should click "Create a Shortcut" instead of running it and then open through the desktop. That fixed the crashing for me. Also, installing maps/markings/items etc. is possible. On PlayonMac/Linux, you should select FeralHeart and then click "Open the directory", which will then open the regular FeralHeart folder which you can then install things just like normal. Hope I helped!

Thank you! This worked for me as well.
