  • 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!

    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! (it's also in the download section of this site). 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? (EDIT: just downloaded the new 18.4 version, looks like so far there's no need to move your file again, it worked just fine for me where it is)

    - 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!

    Download is in download page and 18.4 showed that save file is seemingly fine where it is when getting an update

    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.

    Damn... I'm not sure where to start if you really followed all the steps and were able to find the folder, but maybe you can find your safe file here in the game?

    Alternatively... do you have multiple versions of Pokemon Reborn on your computer? Maybe you accidentally put it in the folder of a different version?

    Me and @_fjrxx managed to get their save file working again! Hurray 🎉

     

    So I wanted to try and summarise some of the things we tried and discussed, so that others may also benefit from it. So here goes

     

    1. Make sure your save file actually ends up in the folder. This sounds simple, but I noticed that getting confused about what is actually in your folder can also be quite simple. With this it might help if I take the time to explain what a save file looks like

    1770056024_Screenshot2020-07-10at07_47_49.png.62f55d0815e29583825d3c098602215b.png

     

    You see, an active save file, the file the game will look for and read, is called Game.rxdata. If you have more that one save file, the other active save file will be called Game_2.rxdata (or Game_3.rxdata, etc.). Then what are these other things in my folder, these Game - number - more info.rxdata things? Well, do you know how the game asks, when you save, 'There already is a save file, are you sure you want to overwrite it?' (yes I know you've been skipping over this text since you were 5, it still asks though). That is what those other files are, your previous, overwritten saves! 

    Hopefully this helps with recognising what is actually in your folder.

     

    2. Make sure your save file has the correct name. Like I said, the game is going to read active save files, and it knows what an active file is because it looks for their exact names. That means your file has to be called Game.rxdata or Game_2.rxdata (or etc.). 

    Now, your mac isn't going to like it if you try to put a Game.rxdata into that folder when there is already a Game.rxdata there. Same type of file with the same name in the same folder is a no no. You can just rename one of them to Game_2.rxdata (or etc.), so you can keep them both without any issues. Additionally, I would like to add that the name should be exactly Game.rxdata (or Game_2.rxdata, or etc.). Naming it 'Game.rxdata old save file' or '(copy) Game.rxdata' won't work, because the game is not going to search for those files. 

     

    3. Now the next issue we ran into is one we actually haven't managed to fix. You see, when @_fjrxx moved their save file to the folder again and had renamed it so the game should kn ow to read and run it, the file changed into a txt file, now looking like this (with TXT)                                

       t2020-07-01at11_21_48PM.thumb.png.188e3d4e663348af42e328523e77fca5.png.ea06d3c2b5014eabd035fe05af451e32.png rather than a blanc paper   1408944077_ScreenShot2020-07-01at11_21_48PM.thumb.png.188e3d4e663348af42e328523e77fca5.png.9c1b04924aeea18af25162a11c95c59e.png

     

    Since the game would still not start up their save, we assumed the unexpected txt thing was the issue, the game probably didn't know what to do what that type of file. We however did not manage to figure out why or how it turned into a txt file, and I also couldn't come up with any ideas on how to turn it back into something the game could work with. So yeah, the txt file issue remains a mystery for now, and if anyone has a clue what could have happened, please let us know

     

    BUT! combining some of the things we mentioned earlier, we also found a way around it! 

     

    4. You see, the first thing we discussed was active save files and overwritten save files. The active save file has turned into a txt file and we didn't know what to do with that. But @_fjrxx had send a screenshot at some point that showed they had a lot of overwritten save files in their Wine files. Overwritten save files still contain all the information from that save. They went to find their most recent overwritten save file, so we could use that because it would hopefully only mean losing a few minutes of gameplay, and then all there is left to do is turn the overwritten save file into an active save file. How do we do that? Easy, just rename it. Call it Game.rxdata (or Game_2.rxdata, etc). The game looks for the correct file name, that is the save it will load and run and that you can play with. 

    So they did that, found a previous overwritten save file, renamed it, and again moved it to the new Pokemon Reborn folder. The file did not change into a txt file this time (which, yay, but also, why are you not being consistent!?) and @_fjrxx could start up their old familiar save file and say hi to their loyal Pokemon squad. The end.

     

     

     

    Anyhoo, if anyone recognises some of the issues mentioned here, hopefully this might give you some insight and help. If you're not sure what to do or have a different problem, leave a comment or shoot me a private message, and then I'll think along with you for any solutions.

    Is Game-z.exe intended to work on Mac if using Wine? For me it just has a blank error screen and an 'OK' button. Game.exe works fine, although its a bit laggy.

    s'all good. something that's kinda been on my to-do list for a while is to get a more functional FAQ put together now that we have the new engine/other helpful tools.
