DB UT2004 mac - problems

Post by satans_banjo » 19-01-2006 18:18

Sorry but I'm having difficulty searching for this answer because the word "Mac" is too short to search with. basically i've downloaded the deathball ZIP, unzipped it, copied it to my "Unreal Tournament 2004.app" directory, cd'ed into the /system directory and entered the following into the terminal:

./ut2004-bin -mod=deathball

and a message came up saying "UT2004 quit unexpectedly". the command "./ut2004-bin works fine and brings up the main game but adding the mod extension seemed to screw things up

does anyone know what's going wrong?

UPDATE: here's what happens when i enter the command:

ben-wadsworths-imac-g5:/applications/unreal tournament 2004.app/system benwadsworth$ ./ut2004-bin -mod=deathball
Signal: SIGBUS [bus error]
Aborting.

hmm, i have no clue about macs etc
but is your deathball installed in ut2004\deathball\ ?
putting the files right into the ut2004\ subfolders doesn't work

i think i'm past those bits - i've opened the .app package (which is the problem the person in the first link is facing) and added the 'deathball' folder. i've done the same in application support (whether or not this is necesary i dont know, just covering my bases). then type the aforementioned command into terminal, and it gives me a SIGBUS error, which from what i gather means that my command is trying to access a memory address which is either forbidden or empty, which leads me to think that the command fails to draw the necessary 'stuff' from the files

this is, of course, really annoying. i'm still working on solving it and i'll get back to you if i find out how to, but other than that any help is appreciated

meanwhile i encourage the development team to check out the new macs at http://www.apple.com :D

hi! as i was saying, you should check out the new macs! they boot up alongside windows vista so if theres something still tying you to windows, you can zip back and use it. i'm going to buy one as soon as i can afford it!
