Trouble opening the latest version of The Mana World

Post by Inferno Blue » 14 Aug 2006, 15:46

This is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air


...wait, no. That's not right.


Okay, so I decided I wanted to try this game a while ago, so I downloaded it. When I tried it, the game didn't work. I forget what it said, but when I tried to play I remember there was red text, and if I made an account and tried to play anyways, the game would do the routine "unexpected quit".

I downloaded the new version today.

When I open it, the game's icon appears in my dock for about 1 milisecond and then disappears.

I think I understand that there are others who are having the same problem, but I don't understand technobabble and reading their topics doesn't help me at all.

I can't find that file.. Is there a specific folder inside "data" where it is located or something?

It's in the root/top directory.

On Mac I suppose it's in the same place as on Linux:

~/.tmw/tmw.log

pay no attention to them. They have no idea what they're talking about :p
You're missing a library; so I suspect you're on 10.3.9. is that right?

anyway, try this build: http://themanaworld.org/tmw-0.0.20.1-mac.dmg

I have no idea if it actually WORKS, because people show up, complain, and never respond to my questions.

Yeah, I'm on 10.3.9. Downloading as we speak.

Well, as soon as I got it I tried to open and it said something along the lines of "No mountable file" or something.

hmm, I'm guessing you're talking about the dmg. I think tiger has a problem with backwards-compatible dmgs... I'll look into it, definetly recompress it.

I have the same issue on my mac. Download was fine, I open the folder, package, whatever, click on the TMW logo, it appears for a second and then vanishes as if it was closed. No error, nothing. Happened 3 times now. I hardly ever use macs, so I have no idea what it could be.

I had this problem too.
What you need to do is copy both the TMW application and data folder onto your hard drive. I just dropped em on my desktop, but for the long term you probably want to make a TMW folder in applications and put it there.

I did that, and the game itself is running now. But my graphics are screwing up. On the login screen everything but the little box where you type your name etc is scrambled, and in the game itself everything works, but the player figures. It's a little scrambled square where the doll should be. (the hair is perfectly visible though, funny enough)

could you post a screenshot, please? a picture is worth a thousand words, and you're no where NEAR 1000.

I will when I get a chance. Probably won't be before a few days though..

How do you take screenshots on a mac, anyway?

I have downloaded the 21.1 DMG and the game runs, until it gets to "Connecting.." then it says "Error Could not find map file." then it quits. I am including a log from the point it began to hit errors.

You could try to get the source package and manually installing all the maps.
