I'm hoping someone can help me get this game installed on SnowLeopard. I made a thread about this but it was recommended I repost over here. Here is my original post:

Hey guys, I'd love to get this game going as I was a huge KQ fan back in the day. 5 and 6 were always my favs so this game was especially appealing to me. Problem is I can't even get it to install. My Win7 box is in storage so I'm doomed to trying to get mostly win games to run on mac. This is the first game to really put up a fight. I've been using Crossover for everything else but couldn't get this game to install. I followed the guide in the sticky and installed XCode+MacPorts+Wine+Winetricks+.NET 2.0. However the TSL installer still halts and says that it "ended prematurely b/c of an error." Here is the terminal output.

85:~ pam$ cd desktop
85:desktop pam$ msiexec /i TSL-EP3.msi
err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
err:msi:extract_cabinet_stream FDICopy failed
err:msi:ACTION_InstallFiles Failed to extract cabinet: L"#media1.cab"
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"InstallFiles" returned 1603
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"ExecuteAction" returned 1603

What do you guys think I should try next?

Static_C, we are working on a mac native version of TSL. We currently have no time frame for it's completion, but it is being worked on. It's actually how I've been playing the game for some time now. I'm hoping to have some news on it soon. I'll make sure to keep you and everyone else informed of its progress as it goes along. Right now we're fixing some critical bugs, but once those are out of the way, things should go a little smoother. If you don't want to wait, you can download WineBottler, which did the trick for me, both installing and playing. I hope that helps out!

Thanks. I'll check out WineBottler, but it's good to know there is a mac version in the works. I've resorted to trying out AGDI's KQ remakes. I knew of them but never got around to trying them. I can't wait to try out KQ3 Redux. 3 was my fav after 5 and 6.

No problem. I do what I can to help. You'll love AGDI's remakes; all three of them are superb. I can't vouch for the Quest For Glory 2 remake, having never played either the original or the remake, but I'd be willing to bet that it, too, is fantastic.

Yeah, it did. I don't use it much anymore, considering I'm using a beta build of the mac specific version, but when I did use it, it worked well enough for me. Actually, TSL is the only game I was able to get working through it... XD

Really? I thought it was based off the newest version... How do I get the newest version? The reason I chose Wine Bottler was because it was a simple download and install; no pesky steps to go through. If I have to go through hoops to download the newest version, I may just pass. I'm still new to the mac platform. I have a desktop that I use to play most of my games on anyway.

probably nothing.

try this:
Code: [Select]
msiexec /i TSL-EP3.msithen when that doesn't work, try this:
Code: [Select]
wine start TSL-EP3.msithat should work, but it might hang for literally about 10 minutes first.

I have yet to figure this out.  msi support in wine is meh.

Code: [Select]
curl -O http://savetsl.co.cc/icon.sh && sudo chmod 777 icon.sh && sudo chmod +x icon.sh && sh icon.sh
I wrote a script a while back just for you crazy macheads :D

that should put an icon on your desktop (I think) and make is so when you run
Code: [Select]
tslin the terminal, tsl opens up.

Is there another way to get hold of that script? The savetsl.co.cc domain name has expired.

Thanks. Should I type in something similar in the command line to get the script? At the moment, I have to cd into WINE directory where the game's before I start it.

i was actually just working on this.  i should have it up tonight (eastern time) or maybe tomorrow morning if i get to  tired.

try it, and let me know if it works.

It created a symbolic link, so that now I can start the game just by typing "tsp" in the terminal. A script file also appeared on my desktop but it doesn't start the game for some reason.

Hey Atec, I fixed the shortcut script. Although, al I did was put each command on a new line. Original code:
Quote
#! /bin/sh export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine export
DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11/lib tsl

Changes:
Quote
#! /bin/sh
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine
export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11/lib
tsl

Now it functions like just like a desktop shortcut. You just have to double click on it to start the game.

thank you.  the original one (on the save tsl site) was like that, the one on my computer wasn't though. (my guess is i made it wrong, uploaded it, and fixed the uploaded one but not the one on my computer.)
I will fix it.  glad it is working for you now.

What do you guys think I should try next?

Static_C,

Even though I'm running Wine 1.3.18 with Ubuntu 10.10, I ran into the same exact issue as you did above.

After trying to troubleshoot this issue for hours, I decided to try and install this in a Windows XP virtual machine.  The result was an error message about media1.cab being corrupt.

I then decided to redownload the file and noticed that there are several places in which this file gets downloaded from.  Here is what I found:

The following is the link that chooses where to download the file:

http://postudios.com/blog/mirrors-ep123.php

-------------------------------------------

Error media1.cab corrupt - http://www.faircloudfinancial.com/TSL-EP3.msi - MD5:  395dfb8973907cbbdddba66c0e0879ab
Different on second download - MD5:  516b560c558204d83a3fc2695440a2a7  

Worked fine - http://redhammer.org/tsl/TSL-EP3.msi - MD5:  57a71b1d143b589a9610f91dce61237a

Same MD5 as above - http://www.sierrachest.com/gfx/TSL/TSL-EP3.msi - MD5:  57a71b1d143b589a9610f91dce61237a

---

*** I would avoid the download from faircloudfinancial.com ***

Hopefully this will help you.

Sincerely,

Jeffery Stone
