Compatibility with Mountain Lion

Post by beebeegreen » August 18th, 2012, 6:55 pm

I am setting up a new Mac OS X 10.8. First, is Eschalon compatible with this OS. Second can I redownload both I and II ( I purchased both for my old Mac) and install?

I don't know that Mountain Lion has specifically been tested yet to make sure Apple didn't break something Eschalon uses, so try it and see. Book II you can download the installer file and use the registration information from your original purchase to activate the game (you did save your registration emails, right?). Book I you need to send the information to BW and he will activate a new download link for you. That may take a couple days as they're in heavy Book III development right now.

If you saved the .dmg file from your last installation you should be able to copy it over using a flash drive or other link and install from there. You might want to check for Book 1 that you have the latest version 1.06.

Thanks for your help! I downloaded the file and installed Eschalon. Fortunately, I had been using Time Machine to back up all my files so the old game files came over - including the security info (didn't have to reenter the registration). So far, the game is playing fine!
