Apologies for the double-post, but this is to signify the new release of MM8BDM for Mac.

This new update is very confusing. Such as I can't join servers because mm8bdm can't locate skulltag on doomseeker, bit i can on offline skirmish. And OpenGL doesn't work. OpenGL issue does kinda get on my nerves because of that edge of aiming up and down all the way is gone now. :| One last thing that worries me is that fact that I could never seem to host a server on Doomseeker. You don't have to reply to all of these but I'd like to get a few answers.

someone join dat vanilla server

I installed this but I get the following message when trying to join a server through DoomSeeker.

Code: [Select]
Client binary cannot be obtained for game: Skulltag
No testing directory specified for Skulltag

Preferences are set to this:

Code: [Select]
Engines: Skulltag:
Path to client binary: /Applications/MegaMan 8-Bit Deathmatch.app
Masterserver address: skulltag.servegame.com:15300
"Testing Releases" Checked. All other fields blank.

File paths:
/Users/[me]/.doomseeker
/Applications/Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch.app/Contents/MacOS

I tried copying the filepath at the end to the "client binary" path, no success. I was able to join a server through internal browser, though. Any solutions for DoomSeeker?

Testing releases always needs to be unchecked.

skulltag y u no release 98e
« Reply #34 on: October 02, 2011, 07:01:45 AM »
Thanks, that error went away.

Unfortunately, as far as setting client binary goes(under Preferences > Engines > Skulltag), it seems that the "Skulltag.app" is the only thing that DoomSeeker can use to launch 8BDM, and the only Mac-Compatible Skulltag available in .app format is 98d. If the "8BDM" app is set for the Skulltag engine, trying to join a server results in... bringing up the "launcher" (which only allows for Campaign or DoomSeeker). I copied some of the skulltag files from the 8BDM app and placed them in a different folder, but DoomSeeker was not able to run them. ("could not be run")

By launching MM8BDM, I'm able to play campaign (in v2c/98e) and join servers from the internal browser. Is there any way to add WADs with belthatsar's launcher / terminal / console commands?

Hey all -

I've been watching the threads, but not near my Mac to do the testing needed to fix this.  I have some time to look into it today though, so I may have a work around/release that fixes your woes.  Before you go into trying to download additional files/ let me have a whack at it .  You shouldn't need to download anything extra.

Thanks!

How would I go about installing this on a Mac OS-X? I mean, do i just open/extract the .dmg file and click on the installer like you said? Do i have to that Wine program or can Mac OS-X do it on it's own and such? (originally a windows user; trying to install this on a Mac OS X).

Gotcha. Well, as soon as V3A drops, I'll work on updating the OS X client.

A new port has been created for the release of V3A. You can find it at the first post of this thread.  Please let me know if you have any bugs or other issues.  Thanks!
