[SOLVED] OpenMW CS crashes on my Mac

Post by troglodyte » 30 Jul 2017, 18:03

Hi boys,

First of all, thank you for this amazing feature, I can run Morrowind on my mac, and even mod it ! It's kind of miraculous.

However, I'm very fond of making mods myself, and I can't open the CS. It opens on the doc, then crashes without any warning message.

I run on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 and the OpenMW version is the 0.42. What can I do to mod again ? I need it like I need oxygen, water or chocolate.

You can probably find out why it's not opening by opening the Terminal, and typing in the following:

Code: Select all

open /Applications/OpenMW-CS.app
When it fails to open, there should be a debug statement about why it failed.

For anybody else, does OpenMW-CS produce a log somewhere like OpenMW does? I don't see anything in the same folder.

Ok, so it basically says nothing at all. Is there a log file created for the CS? Zini, scrawl?

Well, I take the silence as indicating that no logs are being created (and I don't see them myself). I've created feature request 4012 to make OpenMW-CS write to a log file. Once that's implemented, we can actually diagnose this problem.

Thank you very much dudes. I'll wait for another version of OpenMW-CS then. I guess I'll just have to play to the game and its 200 installed mod until then. :D

Correction: you have to run OpenCS like that to get meaningful output:

Code: Select all

/whatever/path/you/have/OpenMW-CS.app/Contents/MacOS/OpenMW-CS
This would really help to identify the issue. Thanks.

Okay, since I don't understand what it means I just copy-paste the code you gave me in the terminal. It does this, which means basically nothing, right ?

You should replace "/whatever/path/you/have/" to your OpenMW-CS.app folder location.

Okay I really was dumb sorry. Well, my OpenCS really is in my application folder, so it doesn't work anyway. The result is the same.
