Under Applications, mine is set to Windows XP. I don't know how important this is, but the next two options are what seemed to prevent the MSI file from opening and installing properly.Go into Libraries. You should see msi and msiexec under existing overrides. When I was getting that error, they were set to Native then Builtin (I believe). All I did was switch these two options to builtin and then hit okay. Verify that it now says:*msi (builtin)*msiexec (builtin)Then hit okay and close the Wine Config menu. Then go back into your terminal and try:wine msiexec /i TSL-EP1+2.msiMine sat there for probably 3 minutes, but then popped up and installed.Last time I tried running this game (when this episode 2 was just released) I was getting that bug where all the cut scenes were being skipped and there was no dialogue working. I can say that now everything is working perfectly. I just watched the opening cut scenes and all the sounds are working perfectly.Also note that I did update to the newest Wine, 1.3.8, so it's working perfectly with this setup.I hope this also helps you guys who are having the same problems. Can't wait to finally play through this episode!
Quote from: Lambonius on September 16, 2010, 06:11:53 PMI'm definitely not figuring out what to do with this either. I downloaded winebottler, copied it and the version of wine that it comes with into my Applications folder, and ran the TSL installer, and......it opens up a window that asks me if I want to run it directly in wine or convert it to an OSX application bundle with winebottler. So I choose the second one, to convert it, and then wine bottler opens up, and I convert the file into a file named TSL_installer.app.As it's converting, the TSL installer starts, I click install...and then I hit a wall.The installer wants me to choose a directory to put the game in, but it only lets me choose Windows directories--I can't figure out how to actually install it on my Mac.
Quote from: Lambonius on September 16, 2010, 06:24:14 PMOkay, I see. I was able to install and found the tsl.exe and the tslconfig.exe files. The config file doesn't do anything when I run it, and when I run the tsl.exe file, I get the following error: "Failed to open "main.cs"At this point, I click ok, then it says "failed to initialize game, shutting down." And that's all for now. I have a feeling I'm on the right path, just need to figure out what to tweak.

Quote from: Lambonius on September 17, 2010, 01:00:04 PMOkay. It's installed properly now. Not sure what the problem was but it seemed to work after redownloading it. The file "main.cs" is in the directory.Now, however, I'm getting the same issue as the other guy who you're working with here, where the game won't initialize the graphics, but you can hear the sound play. I imagine that being able to run that config.exe would allow me to solve the issue.
Quote from: atec123 on September 16, 2010, 08:09:16 PMthe next thing to try out is this:http://davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/#part-1 follow that (the nerdier guide)don't be intimidated by all that crazy looking code you have to type ni the terminal. you don't need to know what it does, just copy and paste it and follow the guide. should be easy as long as you take a little bit of time to read it and don't give up if you don't understand exactly what it is trying to say. ask if you don't understand part of it.when it is done, winebottler and normal command line wine should work. then the command winecfg should work and you should be able to run this command:Code Select Expandsudo port install winetricksonce that finishes, you should be able to run:Code Select Expandwinetricks dotnet20after that, TSLConfig.exe, in theory, should run. I haven't succeeded in getting it to run on my computer just yet, but I also haven't really tried.after that, try different graphical modes in the TSLConfig.exe file until it runs right on your computer. I am guessing you will need to change to windowed mode or change the screen resolution as you can see from this thread right here on the forums: http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=9014.new This is complicated, but it will all be worth it. I am pretty confident that the remaining episodes will work just as well in Wine and you will be able to play the whole thing without installing any traces of windows.

Quote from: pandemonium on September 18, 2010, 10:58:05 PMHas anyone else had any audio issues? For me, I get audio during the game launch and on the main menu. When I pick an episode and the game is loading, I hear a split second of the music and then it goes silent. In the game I hear no music and no voices. I do hear some background noises though, like Graham's footsteps and doors opening. This is on Ubuntu 10.04 using Wine 1.2.I've also found a couple places where it locks up.1. If you're in a game and you open the menu, click Title Menu, and choose Yes, the game freezes.2. From the main menu click About and then Adventure Gaming Tips. The game freezes.
Quote from: pandemonium on September 19, 2010, 04:30:45 PMThis is on the 2+1 pack. I installed with "wine start TSL.msi". I'll upgrade to 1.3, try the other tricks you suggest, and report back. I went with 1.2 because that's what was reported to work on AppDB.
Quote from: pandemonium on September 19, 2010, 04:50:29 PMI updated to 1.3 and installed dotnet20, then ran TSLconfig and set it to windowed mode with low detail. Still no sound other than footsteps and some other ambient things.I've got a couple Windows machines that I can play the game on, and at this point it's easier for me to do that. Unless you have something else to try, or you would like me to keep tinkering just for the sake of getting to the bottom of it, I'll just play it on one of my Windows boxes.Thanks. :-)
Quote from: Lambonius on September 20, 2010, 06:09:29 AMWell, there is some screen tearing during the intro cutscenes, but otherwise the game would seem to run flawlessly. Like a said though, it's not really playable, since it crashes every time you enter a conversation where you need to click a dialog option. I'll try to mess with it some more though and see if I can figure it out. If this were Windows, I would think this was a driver issue with my video card, but with Mac and Wine, it's hard to be sure.
