For the record, you may want to note that the current editor officially doesn't support Mac OS 10.6...

(And now I have to decide whether I should spend extra money this summer on a laptop or not... :| )

I know 10.7 doesn't support 32-bit Core chips in some older hardware. Is that why you can't upgrade?

Short answer: My old white MacBook doesn't have the hardware necessary (I can't remember if it's the issue you mention, or if it's something else) to upgrade past OS 10.6.8... :(

Yeah, but there aren't any Eschalon builds for FreeBSD.

Two years ago, I was certain I was going to get a MacBook with Boot Camp installed.

But, post-Windows 8, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to do that now... :evil:

Sorry for not joining the current discussion, but I have a problem. When trying to download the Windows steup.exe I get the "this program isn't commonly downloaded" -error, and I can't do a damn thing about it. Can anyone help?

Seems like some kind of stupid IE anti-malware filter. Maybe try Chrome or Firefox.

I tried Chrome, but it still won't work. I'm not sure what the error is, since my computer's language is Finnish.

It sounds like this is the software causing the issue: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... stions-ie9

It sounds like it should just be an Internet Explorer thing, though perhaps Chrome uses it also or something. There's instructions in that link about how to get around it, or how to disable the feature entirely.

Question: I'm using the Character Editor for Book III on a MacBook, OS 10.9.x. Looking for the directory where the datpak and character files are located. I'm not sure where to point the character editor to. Some help?

Thanks.

In the Finder, hold down the Option key and click the Go menu. From there select Library (the one that has no shortcut key and disappears if you let go of the option key). In that Library folder open Application Support\Basilisk Games\Book 3 Saved Games

The char file will be in the saved game "slot" where you saved it, with the Quick Save being slot 1 and the 19 custom named slots being 2 through 20

Kill 'em all, let the sysadmin sort 'em out.

BTW, SS and xolotl might want to add something about this (along with the whole hidden folder issue) to the online Mac documentation for the Editor. Just a suggestion...

Yeah, indeed, that should get added there.

Also I should really take a look at the Mac bits of the preferences code to figure out if we can get the app better at just auto-detecting that stuff.

SS, if you wanted to grab that, btw, feel free - I'm probably not going to have time to do any serious work on the editor until later next week. Otherwise, I'll just get it then!
