I - Download Guide

F.A.Q

Q- What is PlayonMac?

A- PlayonMac is an open source software that technically converts window based softwares into mac based softwares. This allows softwares that were originally designed for window compatibility to be converted and configured to run on mac.

Q - Is PlayonMac safe?

A- PlayonMac is reportedly safe. But be aware that what you install on there to be converted is not made by PlayonMac and could be harmful.

Q - Do I need to install PlayonMac?

A - Yes. FeralHeart is originally windows only compatible. In order to install it on Mac you'll need PlayonMac


In order to download Feral Heart, Mac users need to install Feral Heart differently. This process will take an average of 10 to 30 minutes. As you click Download in the upper bar you'll be given two options
Click the small here

After you've done so, you'll be taken to the main Feral Heart guide. If needed, follow the original guide for the installation process. Since this guide is to provide extra information.


First, install xquartz. This isn't necessary since it will automatically install it while downloading PlayonMac.[/size][/color]
 

Afterwards, install PlayonMac by clicking the link circled in red. Playonmac is the main source for being able to run Feral Heart


To know if you've correctly installed it; it looks like so



Double click play on mac and it should like this this



Now, to install feral heart click this link. Don't worry, even though it says PlayonLinux is it the mac file as well.



You should get something like this.  Double click to unzip it



After you unzipped it, it should look like this.



Good, you're almost done!

Run PlayOnMac




Click tools in your upper toolbar, then select run local script



Select next



Select browse



Select downloads and find the FHunix.pol file




Select next



Click Next. This warning is to let you know that this source is not approved nor from PlayonMac personally. That's OK.



Select the small check mark in the bottom left to agree,



Wait for installation



If the loading bar doesn't go farther than 0 while downloading, Force quit and reinstall the FHunix file and restart.

After thats finished, you'll have one more installation step.

Check Full.




And install



To know you successfully installed it, there should be a FeralHeart shortcut like so



If you cannot find it type the search button on your tool bar and type in Feral Heart.

If it's not there re-read and reinstall FH.pol


It will take 2-20 clicks to open.

IF IT REFUSES TO OPEN READ GUIDE II


II - Refuses to open

If your game refuses to open upon first installing it follow this simple guide.

Right click the short cut



Press Open




If it does not open check if your firewall or any anti-viruses are blocking it or comment for further help.



III - Crashing

If your game is consistently crashing and you have NOT installed any add-ons, please comment below the issue.

If you cannot connect to a server because it says "Failed to connect to (    ) server", go here and log in http://feral-heart.com/login/index.php

You will ALWAYS need to have that open in order to play



IV - Fixing white morphs

Just glancing at this, it's a very thorough and well put together tutorial. I've ran into so many people running a Mac that are confused and don't know how to install FH, this should help a bunch! Thanks for the hard work :)

Very nice guide! I don't use Mac but I'm sure this will come in handy for other people! And on the slight chance I do get a Mac at some point, I'll definitely use this!

Thank you for sharing this! I bet this will be quite the useful guide for those experiencing some issues. c: Nice work putting this together.

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