#78756 HiRez Games Launcher (Tribes Ascend)

Posted thanoulas on 25 April 2012 - 11:20 AM

Hi, as a few of you might know I've been working on a HiRez Native Launcher for the past week, specifically for the Tribes Ascend game.
I've made a lot of progress, but there are a few things that still need to be done, the most important being the installation of the game without the need for windows or a VM.

This launcher is used by HiRez Studios for their other games as well, and the result could end up being a fully featured Launcher for all of them (Smite, Tribes Ascend, Global Agenda).

Here is a screenshot of the Work In Progress:

Posted Image

The project is being developed in Objective-C# / Mono 2.9 and Wineskin
It's a pretty big project, so any help would be appreciated.
A private and a public beta will follow, before the release.

I will need 4-5 beta testers for the private beta test, they will only be needed to test the launcher, and not the game itself.
You will need to download approximately 3GB from the net!
Only members of the forum please, Porters have priority. First come, first served.
Oh, and admins / mods I'd appreciate a Member's project thread! Thanks!

Final List of Private Beta Testers:
  • wMin17
  • moussaillon
  • blinxfrost
  • kGameLover1
  • yujenisis
Sorry to those who didn't make it in, you will be able to test the public beta soon.

Special Message for the Private testers:
Please, do NOT redistribute the files that you will receive once the private beta starts. Their purpose is to make a stable enough version to share it with everyone, and the private beta is not going to be anything like that. If you do share the file with anyone and that comes into my attention, you will receive my eternal fury :ph34r:
and I will make sure that the launcher won't work in your machine again B)

Once the first working version is ready, you will receive a PM with instructions and the link to the file.
You will then need to post here your results.
Please document everything you do step by step, in proper readable english (blinx :P)
You will need to go through the setup process at least 3 times, each time doing something different. Random keypresses and attempts to f%^k up the launcher are more than welcome. Please, try and break it :)

MAY 2, 2012
The first test is underway! Instructions and links have been sent to the private testers!
I am going on, trying to find a way to decompress the archive! After that, it's just a matter of porting!

ACTIVE BUGS/TASKS LIST that need to be resolved BEFORE the PUBLIC BETA:
  • CRC check the downloaded file(s)
  • Retry download if CRC fails
  • Timeout download and retry
  • Extract the .dfc file
  • Make the wrapper
Thanks for your interest! I'll try and make sure your time is rewarded by giving you the ability to finally play this great game!


#76272 Wineskin Recorder Or Recorder For MACS

Posted DonGato on 30 March 2012 - 12:37 AM

I know how how blinxfrost would code.

new var poop : bool;
new var stuff : float;
new var crap : float;  // LOL floating poop
function main () {
	If (poop) {
		crap = stuff;
		 }
}


Something like that ^

Download latest version of the installer here
Neverwinter Nights_2_Expansion_Installer_1.1.zip (1.1)

Download archive
Neverwinter Nights_2_Expansion_Installer.zip (1.0)
http://users.kladhes...l_expansions.sh (old bash script)

How do I use this ?
1. Automatic Serial number activation for the expansion installer

1.1 I have not included any valid serials for Neverwinter Nights 2 or it's expansions due to respect to the developers of this great game and it's superb expansions. However you can input your own serial numbers directly into the script for easier installations.

To change the serial numbers right click on the "Neverwinter Nights 2 Expansion Installer" and click "Show Package Contents".


1.2 Expand the directories and open the main.scpt file.


Contents

Resources

Scripts

main.scpt


1.3 Browse to these lines bellow


# SELECT SERIAL FOR NWN
set {button returned:nwn_serial_nwn} to display dialog "Select serial number for: Neverwinter Nights 2" buttons {"SERIAL1", "SERIAL2", "SERIAL3"} with icon caution)
# SELECT SERIAL FOR NWN MOTB
set {button returned:nwn_serial_motb} to (display dialog "Select serial number for: Neverwinter nights 2 Mask of the betrayer" buttons {"SERIAL1", "SERIAL2", "SERIAL3"} with icon caution)
# SELECT SERIAL FOR NWN SOZ
set {button returned:nwn_serial_soz} to (display dialog "Select serial number for: Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir" buttons {"SERIAL1", "SERIAL2", "SERIAL3"} with icon caution
# SELECT SERIAL FOR NWN MOW
set {button returned:nwn_serial_mow} to (display dialog "Select serial number for: Neverwinter Nights 2 Mysteries Of Westgate" buttons {"SERIAL1", "SERIAL2", "SERIAL3"} with icon caution)

1.4 These lines tell the script which serial numbers that are available for the user to pick in the graphical installer.
To input your own serial numbers for the game simply edit the "SERIAL1" SERIAL" and "SERIAL3" for Neverwinter Nights 2 and then for it's expansions in the statements bellow.


Here's an example of adding three serial numbers for the main game of Neverwinter Nights 2.


# SELECT SERIAL FOR NWN
set {button returned:nwn_serial_nwn} to ("Select serial number for: Neverwinter Nights 2" {"XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX", "YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY", "VVVVV-VVVVV-VVVVV-VVVVV-VVVVV-VVVVV-VVVVV"} with icon caution

Make sure you add alteast one valid serial number for each of the expansions aswell besides the main game.


2 Running the Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion installer

2.1 Double click on the "Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion installer" app from Finder.


2.2 Choose which version of Neverwinter Nights 2 for Mac OS you have installed (Mac App Store / CD version)


2.2 Select the directory to your Windows installation of Neverwinter Nights 2.


2.3 Select the Neverwinter Nights 2 "my documents" directory from your windows installation (usually c:\Users\<MY-USERNAME>\My Documents)


2.4 Select the directory to your Mac installation of Neverwinter Nights 2 (For the Mac App Store version you need to select the application file instead of a folder).


2.5 Verify that you want to continue with the installation.


2.5 Enter your Mac OS users password. (after this the installer will copy all necessary files for the game in the background, just wait 'til you get a new popup)


2.7 Choose if you want the expansion installer to apply serial numbers automaticly or if you want to do this manually afterwards (the installer do not contain the serial numbers as default,

for more info look at "1. Automatic Serial number activation for the expansion installer"


2.8 Choose if you want the expansion installer to modify your /etc/hosts in order to block out BioWare's CD KEY validation process (you won't be able to use the standard server browser for network games if you do so but can still play direct connection sessions).


2.9 Choose to start the game or go back to Mac OS X


You should now have a lot more hours of gameplay with your Neverwinter Nights 2 game with all the expansions B)

#76410 Improving "Work in Progress" posts

Posted cluthz on 31 March 2012 - 01:01 AM

Lately this forum have been run over with Work in Progress ports.
This is not a bad thing, but WIP ports should have a lot of info attached to make it easier to continue the work.

To help out with a port you really need some info, and posting a WIP port with out it is just filling the port database.


I would like to see following mandatory additions to a WIP port post:


First a very good explanation:
What works
What doesn't
Other issues.

Your complete system specs!
THings might differ on 10.6/10.7 and amd/nvidia

Then a bit more.
1. Link to appdb!! and rating!
2. Game info!
3. Wine engines tried.
4. WInetricks used
5. Patches used
6. Other things done
(reg hacks etc..)
7. Logs

Summary

Example. (fyi, this port works, but it's just an example)


Quote

Risen -WIP

What works:
Game starts, is playable
Sound
Multiplayer
Limited mouse movement

What does not:
Mouse does not turn 360°

Other issues:
Some issues with fonts.

My system:

Issues persist on all of them

4. WInetricks used
vcrun2008
dx9_36
dx13_37

5. Patches used
Raw3 patch from http://bugs.winehq.o...gi?id=20395#c38
->this one fixed some mouse problems.


6. Other things done
Setting RegEdit:
Awesomeness=enabled in HKCU/Software/wine/Direct3D/
->Without this all tress are pink

7. Logs

fixme:win:RegisterRawInputDevices (pRawInputDevices=0x229eb74, uiNumDevices=1, cbSize=12) stub!

8. Summary

Game runs with some issues.
RawInput did fix some mouse issues, without it mouse didn't work at all
Game does not start without dx13_37 and dx9_36 and vcrun2008 is needed for multiplayer

Font issues still remains and mouse is only partially working


Without this it's nearly impossible to help out on a WIP port.
You have to check registries, looking for dlls installed and so on.


#73480 GTA Series went steamplay!

Posted cluthz on 14 February 2012 - 05:37 AM

So do you have GTA* on steam and want to play them on mac?
*GTA3, SA, VC

Well, today they went steamplay, which means if you own PC version on steam, you can download it for mac too!

The games are already marked steamplay, but me and a some other users still can't access them, but on the forum people are mentioning that the games are popping up for them now.
I guess steam just have some database updating to do first.

On the other hand, this could mean a new generation of cider frameworks :D


#71481 New All-In-One Interface for CiderX 2.0. Discuss!!!

Posted samm565 on 03 January 2012 - 11:01 AM

I made this video in after effects, this is how ciderX could look like with some extra little animations to make it look a little better. Sorry about the speed, i made some parts to fast.

It's only the Opening of ciderX and creating a new project. I was going to make it a little longer, but it started to get boring adding keyframes and it was a little confusing because there was like a 100 layers because i imported my photoshop file into after effects, and it made it really hard to keep things organised, so i decided that i wouldn't make it any longer.

Please tell me what you think.
