Crashes when quitting

1. Extract the wrapper archive (double click on the .7z file)
2. Hold Fn + double click on the wrapper.
3. Click "Install Windows Software"
4. Browse to your "setup.exe" or similar
i) Redownload the wrapper, and paste the
   game folder from Program Files in the fresh wrapper.
6. When done, you will get a prompt to choose the executable. Choose "/Program Files/Focus/Frogwares/The Testament of Sherlock Holmes/game.exe"
7. Close all windows.
8. If the game's DRM prevents the game from starting, use a crack.

does'nt work at all for me : crash in 2 seconds !
I got a radeon 5870…
Same problem here! I've tried to create a new blank wrapper with WS9Wine 1.5.23AMDSpeedHack and it's not working. App crash after a few seconds. If I use your wrapper to install the game, it says something about Windows SP2 o.O
Mine installed fine, that's weird. I never had issues installing any game to be honest. Try installing in a wrapper with a different engine and then move the files to my wrapper.

@MolochMac I'm now building an ATi compatible engine, I'll upload it soon
Just used installer app from the porting team and the game plays fine or fine enough for my 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 13 inch so you can put intel hd on the list thanoulas . The game fails when you quit the game bug still happens but i will get over it , exellent port sir.

Thank you, i really appreciate !
New version is now being uploaded. By the way, you should lower the graphics settings to lowest possible, try and experiment. Too high will trigger the game to crash due to memory exhausted errors.
works with SnowLeo ?
hello, installation worked with updates and everything.  But so sluggish its unplayable.  Ive got an ATI RAdeon 5750 :)

And ive also got the game crash on exit as well, bit it doesnt seem to affect options or saves.
I haven't had time to update the wrapper, it's going to be updated tonight with ATi support.

First I want to thank you a lot for porting this I have been waiting.
Now I have some issues with the port,

My specs...
Os X 10.8.2
3.06 GHz Intel Core I3
4 GB Ram
256 MB Vram ATI Radeon HD 4670

So I should be able to run it on low specs...

The first issue comes with the game crashing right after it quits, so you can't change the graphics settings, after a wile I was able to change the graphics from here: drive_c/users/wineskin/application data/frogwares/The Testament of Sherlock Holmes/setup.ini

The second issue comes with the game being really slow like 1-3 fps slow!! completely unplayable :( but on the menus and the cutscenes runs really smooth.

I think it has to do with my graphics card being ati :(

hope I helped with feedback

so... im guessing the AtiFix isnt working?
nope :( its not I just downloaded it last week
any news??
It is still not working on ati... :(
