  • an actual real-life mac version (that might also be unstable and crash a lot)


    andracass

    hi.

    imma get to the point.

    we have a mac version! it's in beta. online doesn't work. some places might crash the game.

    but it exists.

    and you can get it here!

     

    you might be wondering why i'm releasing the mac version now and not later.

    it's because i don't have a mac and can't really test it.

    catalina users also have literally no other option to play the game and, like, that totally sucks.

    so you'll have this! (until apple drops OpenGL support too.)

     

    please report issues you have here. especially if the game crashes.

    and there should be a windows/linux update out soon as well!

    Hi! Not sure if this is a silly question, but I assume this only works on mac?

    (and I was wondering if 18.3 will have a windows version....or if that's in the works / waiting for this beta to finish! or if 18.3 was always going to be exclusively mac....)

    Mac user here. So far, this is an amazing thing. It runs WAY better than it used to on both Wine Mac and Virtualbox. Yes, online doesn't work, but other than that, I've had no issues. Keep up the great work!

    i think this is fixed by putting it into "applications"

    By mashing the fruit until its an edible mush

     

    okay here we go

     

    How to get your old save file from Wine to work on the new Pokemon Reborn Mac version

     

    Step 0.5) Realise that this thing is for Mac only (for now). If you don't have Mac stuff, this version is not for you right now, mokay? kay.

     

    Step 1.0) Download the new Mac version

    You can download the mac version by clicking the link in @andracass's post. And you should already be there because that's where I'm commenting on, so that's an easy step! Downloading might take a while, give your poor Mac a second

     

    Step 2.0) Move Pokemon Reborn to a place where you'll be able to find it, preferably the Applications folder in Finder! It works just fine on Desktop for me too, but Mac creates some issues sometimes and moving stuff to the Applications folder has solved those issues before, so it's a pretty good idea. 

     

    Step 2.5) Open the game.

    Double click the game and open it up, just so we can see if it starts up at all. If all goes well, the game will start up the way you're used to. After you get past the pretty intro screen, we encounter our problem:

     

    1232739916_Screenshot2020-05-03at15_16_31.png.4ed0de4ca5a96d6cca0dfd14723821f6.png

     

    Our safe file isn't there. That's the problem we're going to fix. 

     

    Does the game not start up? First, again, try moving it to Applications. Still doesn't work? Uhm, yeah, that's not really the problem I'm trying to fix here, so I don't really know, but please leave a comment somewhere and we'll see if we can fix it together mokay? 

    If it works, let's get to moving your save file.

     

    Step 3.0) Let's uncover the unseen.

    The folder where we want our save file to be, is hidden. So we have to make it un-hidden. I think I've found the easiest way to do so: 

    - Open Finder

    - Go to <YourName's> Mac

    - Go to Macintosh HD

    - When you are there you will most likely see something like this: 1334697407_Screenshot2020-05-03at15_49_46.png.40719076ca762b6d4b767211ba307fc9.png

     

    (I've right mouse clicked the Macintosh HD, so you can see how I got there. Also yes, my name it Tess, hi)

    - When you are here, in Macintosh, hit Command + Shift + Dot   (Dot as in .)

     

    If that went well Finder should now look something more like this:356900225_Screenshot2020-05-03at15_48_06.png.0860c3e6ba7378db61f303333b59cb29.png

     

    Those greyed out, less clear things? Those are hidden files and we can now see them, yay. Okay, so stay here, in Macintosh, with the files that you can now see, because we are going to...

     

    Step 4.0) Dig towards the folder where we want to put our save file into.

    So, we're still in Macintosh, and here's where we're going next:

    - Open the folder Users

    - From there, Open the folder with your (user)name

    - From there, Open the folder Library (this one is greyed out, a hidden one, so yeah that's why we needed to un-hide that stuff)

    - From there, Open the folder Application Support

    - From there, Open the folder Pokemon Reborn

    Congrats! You found the folder that is concerned with save files, Hurray! (no, I don't know what it's doing all the way out there, but it's there)

     

    660837459_Screenshot2020-05-03at16_02_44.png.e6a650f4aa9b42a4c82338ffd1ee562e.png

     

    (here's what the folder should look like. Again, I right clicked the upper part, so you can see a summary of the folders we went through to get here.)

     

    So, we have a latest_save.txt and it's a little lonely, so in the next step we'll fix that. 

    First though, is there already something there? More specifically a Game.rxdata? That is a save file. I think it should only be there if you started and saved a new game. If you want to keep that, make sure it's safe, if you don't care, just delete it, JUST BE SURE IT'S NOT A SAVE FILE YOU CARE ABOUT. okay. but if you haven't started playing or saved, there shouldn't be anything there I don't think.

    Anyway, next step!

     

    Step 5.0) Go find your save file from your Wine files.

    So yeah most of you are here because you have a previous save file. If you've played on Mac, you probably had to use Wine. And your save is somewhere in the Wine files. I don't know your computer, I don't know where you put the Wine files, so I'm afraid this part is mostly up to you. If you can't find it, leave a comment somewhere or google 'how to find save files Wine'. We'll work it out from there, but I'm afraid this post is too lengthy as it is and the Reborn site will refuse it so I'm not going to add that here as well.

    Did you manage to find your safe files? Dope! The one you want is Game.rxdata, or if you made multiple save files, Game_2.rxdata, Game_3.rxdata and so on. So yeah, those are your precious save files.

     

    Now what you're gonna do with them is the last step:

     

    Step 6.0) Drag and drop your save files into the folder we found earlier

    Just drag and drop. Copy and paste should work too. Give that latest_save.txt a friend, so it's more like this:

     

    123878928_Screenshot2020-05-03at16_18_51.png.8031c124d2f12920502dde46de73a66a.png

     

    Okay! There you go, your save file should now work for the renewed Mac. 

    So yeah, I guess that is a final step: Open the game again and see if your save file is there, safely, with the team you remember. 

     

    If it's not, try to remember all the steps you took, see if you made a mistake, or leave a comment saying what you did and what's not working and maybe someone can help mokay? 

     

    A few last things:

    - Try to remember where we just moved the save files to. If you ever want to reload a previous safe file for whatever reason, that is where your saves are now, so that's where you need to be. Also, if a new version of Reborn comes out, you might need to fish your save file out again and put it in the new version, so keep in mind where we put it mokay?

    - I don't know if it's safe to pull that folder away from where it is now, and keep it somewhere... more in reach. I'm not gonna try. It might cause issues. I have no idea.

    - Oh, if you're done with seeing hidden folders and want them gone again, simply go back to the Macintosh thingy and again hit the buttons Command + Shift + Dot   That should make them disappear again. 

     

    Special thanks to @andracass and everyone else who has been working to make all this stuff work!

    A sad story has come up - OS X 10.12 or further is required to play, so my old "donated" computer isn't good enough. Wine still works, though.
