Tutorial: An Alternative Way of Installing FH on Mac
« on: July 26, 2016, 07:39:25 pm »
edit 07/10/2020. This post is old, but hopefully not outdated in terms of whether it works or not. I'd remake it if I could, but I'm not sure if it's needed. If there are still issues encountered I'll try to answer them. If necroing the thread isn't permitted, even for tutorial posts, DM me.

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!
That's all.

So.


STEP ONE)

Download Wineskin Winery.
Click me!...Again!

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:



Click the small + button. This will take you to another window:


Select the latest version from the drop down menu. Click "Download and Install".
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".


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:


So then it will say "Wrapper Creation Finished". Click "View Wrapper in Finder".


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":

Go to Downloads. Then choose the FHSetup. Wait.

Then The FeralHeart setup will run.


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

Need to ask questions? Go ahead in the comments!

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:

If you define yourself by the power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess… then you have nothing.

This seems extremely helpful! Others are sure to find this helpful. And if I ever get a Mac sometime, I'll know where to look. xD

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?
