PostPosted: Mon Jun 22, 2009 4:11 am    Post subject: Mac Version

After looking over the forum for answers on will there be a Mac version I have come to two conclusions:

1. The coders of this software will not make a Mac version any time soon
2. The North American Theatre Mod works just like the PC version by simply copying the PC files to their respective folders on the Mac.

It should not be too difficult to make a .pkg installer or an Automater installer. The only thing I need is are the resource files which the PC version installs.

If I could get a copy of those files in their respective folders (i.e. the proto.xml file in its properly named folder) from the creators it would be great.

Basically I need a folder hierarchy of the installer files.

How would I go about this?

sounds like a very nice Idea you have there, basically you can download the installer to a PC, unpack it, install it to an empty mock folder placed wisely and labled Age of empires III and youhave a folder with all changed files from NE.

Essentially that is the idea. Most files as far as I can tell are identical to the PC version (instructions for modding work on both platforms).

The only problem is: I don't have a PC with AOEIII on it (or access to one). I just need the files, and the PC locations of where they would be placed. The folder hierarchies are very similar.

I just need someone to upload to say MediaFire or RapidShare the files in a .zip or .rar in the correct folders, which I could download.

I'm going to ask Alexastor about the directories and files, the main reason why we don't have MAC version is, that NE is still a beta mod, not a final. Nevertheless, I'm gonna ask. Wink

Okay, here we go. Simple as that, he said the next version comes without any installer, so you'll have all source files in a folder.

Thank you enormously.

I managed to get the original version working, but not with The Asian Dynasties.

The only problem I encountered was getting the maps to work properly. But that can always be worked on later.

Thanks again to all three of you,

Mozart

PS: when will the next version be released?
