OSX - SG fails to run

Postby Adz » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:48 am

Hi folks!

I re-compiled the game on OSX 10.4.11 (the supplied .app doesn't run on tiger) and I placed all the game content in the .app/Content/MacOS/Smokinguns/ but when I start the app, just after initializing of OpenAL it throws me back to the desktop with a Client Shutdown (Received signal 10) =(

I've checked literally everything and my OpenAL is a universal build from '06 (well it is tiger ;)) I'm completely at a loss. Usually I don't bother with the Mac but since my PC died I have no choice..

Anyone got any ideas?

Have you tried disabling OpenAL?
With a text editor open your q3config.cfg (see: Where can I find my configuration file?) and change the line:
Code: Select all
seta s_useOpenAL "1"

with:
Code: Select all
seta s_useOpenAL "0"

Aha! That might be the problem, when the game starts it says "execing default.cfg" and then "Couldn't exec q3config.cfg" "Couldn't exec autoexec.cfg".

I'll have a poke around =)

*EDIT*
There's nothing in the folders that you linked to. I only have an empty SmokinGuns/ folder with a crashlog and a qkey file. Thats it =(

Sure that is a problem!

The first time you run SG it should create some files and folders in your user directory. This is what I get with a clean install in Linux:

Code: Select all
.smokinguns:

-rw-r--r-- 1 biondo biondo   2048 2012-09-30 15:42 qkey
-rw-r--r-- 1 biondo biondo 709644 2012-09-30 15:42 servercache.dat
drwxr-x--- 2 biondo biondo   4096 2012-09-30 15:42 smokinguns

.smokinguns/smokinguns/:

-rw-r--r-- 1 biondo biondo 10093 2012-09-30 15:42 q3config.cfg
-rw-r--r-- 1 biondo biondo    13 2012-09-30 15:42 q3history

nope, i triesd all binaies and available packages you gave for mac, i'm under mac OS 10.8 mountain lion and i have the same error than others : smokin'guns close after launching, in system console logs i have these messages :

01/10/12 14:24:55,742 smokinguns.ub[1715]: CPSGetCurrentProcess(): This call is deprecated and should not be called anymore.

01/10/12 14:24:55,742 smokinguns.ub[1715]: CPSSetForegroundOperationState(): This call is deprecated and should not be called anymore.

I thought this is the problem.

Bumping this post to notify you of a new Smokin' Guns .DMG file for installation on MAC OS X. If you never got SG working or are interested to test this file, give it a try and give us feedback in the above post.
