Computer illiterate with a Mac needs help

Postby Goblin King » Fri May 17, 2013 4:16 am

Hello everyone,
Three computers ago (in other words about 15 years ago), I used to have GCCG and I used to play with my friend. It was fun.
Now I have a Mac and I'm completely computer stupid. I look at the directions to load GCCG on my Mac and I run into two problems.
1) The instructions say go here and download this. So I go there and there is no longer that to download.
2) They say go into code mode and type in this and that. I don't know how to go into code mode. Do I close my eyes and click my heels?
3) There's this new workaround called wineskin that some on the boards say is great. Well, which version do I need?
I know, I'm pathetic. I'm a creature from the last century. But I still want to play this game DAMN IT!
So I'm wondering if someone in the US might volunteer to walk me though this. I can call you up, long distance at an agreed upon date and an agreed upon time and you can be my MECCG Tech Support and walk me through the installation.
What do you say? Send me a PM and we will chat and figure out a time and date.
Thanks bunches.

I've come up with a Plan C now. There is a Mac user group that meets in my city once a month. I'm going to take my computer there and hopefully someone can walk me through the installation there. Wish me luck, I'd love to start playing again.

Normal installation will take some time. I dont remember who much exactly but last time i think it was about one hour. Probably have to download libraries, later core, compile etc. And the main problem is you wont have images of cards. They were deleted from the server. But i can make upload of them for you and you will just copy them to the right folder.

Still suggest you to use Wine, the best option on Mac. But in this case you need somebody with PC, install there GCCG (which is much easier than Mac Os) and copy it to Wine folder.

install xcode 4+ from MacApp store

takes a while, but it's mandatory, you can't do it without

After you install Xcode, 4.4+ for Lion or Mountain Lion

you might have to launch Xcode and goto preferences
and to the Downloads Tab

then click on command line tools and install those...

you also need

X11
Mountain Lion
http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/

Lion or below you should have installed it with the OS install search the net for how to get it otherwise not to bad

download

http://gccg.sourceforge.net

look at source section

I use pre 2.0 versions except for ttf

watch Lungothin video while installing

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/775 ... orthin.mp4

extract gccglibs on the desktop

http://ethan.tira-thompson.com/Mac_OS_X_Ports.html

install above easily

you are going to extract them all, this will make folders

launch terminal, in utilities

after it starts type verbatim and do verbatim, --NO QUOTES when you type tho

start with SDL-1.2.15.zip first then the other SDLs

STEP 1

type "cd" and a " "
then drag the first (2nd, 3rd, etc) SDLwhatever folder in gcclibs folder
to the terminal window
this should copy the name of the folder after the "cd "
hit return
this changes directories like this line does:
ig88a:~ rezwits$ cd /Users/rezwits/Desktop/gcclibs/SDL_image-1.2.12

STEP 2

type "./configure" hit return

STEP 3

after thats done
type "make" hit return

STEP 4

after thats done
type "sudo make install" hit return
the first time you do this it should ask for a password,
YOUR main root password for installs

STEP 5

(REPEAT STEPS 1 - 5 FOR EACH OF THE SDLwhatever folders)
sometimes you might get an error after one of them, ignore

make a new folder using the finder in /Applications called gccg

go back to the terminal window and copy and paste this line in

svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/gccg/svn/core core --username ccg /Applications/gccg/

hit return, if it asks for a password its "gcc"
this should take about 30 minutes

in terminal type "cd /Applications/gccg/core/" hit return

type "make all" hit return

after this is done you can run it but you don't have any graphics

to run the program type "./Metw" and hit return

to finish up and get graphics copy this line and paste in terminal

svn checkout https://gccg.servebeer.com/ccg/metw metw -username ccg /Applications/gccg/

hit return
this will take about 6-8 hours so you'll have to leave it over night

if you run into problems not being able to run with ./Metw

try downloading http://gccg.sourceforge.net/modules/available.xml
in safari save as source in /Applications/gccg/core/build/available.xml

if that doesn't work and you get arch error

in terminal type "cd /Applications/gccg/core/" hit return
./gccg_package install
./gccg_package update

THIS IS NEEDED BELOW
Now you can either install the binary version with this command
./gccg_package install client fonts darwin-x64

and this line

./gccg_package install client fonts source

make all

you need the x64 instead of x86 if on 64 bit system

Should work, I am tired tho and made this up quick after a re-install things change etc blah blah

I did install this on my Laptop 10.8.5 and then did these instruction on my 10.7.5 desktop

works!!!

Laters...
