Heya sorry if i posted this in the wrong place :-s

i'm running Wineskin, wrapper 2.5.9 engine - WS8Wine1.3.36, using Mac OS 10.6.8 and i think using directx11??

Basically my problem is that i can't finish logging in/can't select a character because the char selection screen is black..

I see the cryptic screen with the white loading bar, then the new romulus logo screen with ' loading' underneath the logo, then after this is what i assume would be the char selection screen with 'st.30.20130513a.29' in center at the top, and the two blue minimise/close buttons far top right corner, the rest of the screen stays black forever, with music playing but no character selection or login fields or anything, just blackness and music, please help me perfect world, i love the game but can't play post the new romulus patch!

thanks, myrddinwooding23

I'm sorry; but for those who are still on a very old version of Mac OS (10.6.8 seems to be the popular one here) and have a Mac that can support the update to 10.8 please update! It's cheap on the App Store!

As mentioned many times here; the graphic drivers in 10.6.8 are very dated and issues are to be expected. If you are on a legacy Mac that cannot go beyond 10.6.8...you might just be SOL.

STO UMV 1.6.0 was worked wonders on my machine! Thank you for your hard work Doh!

After reading through all these posts i did this but when it gets to the launcher it just says the error message:

'Bad Request'

How do i sort this out? any body had this problem too?

Did you use the native mac unzipper utility to open the game and wine downloads? Not doing that caused me a lot of problems way back.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Okay, so, I'm betting that the 1.51 - 1.6 folder switch only works if you have a previously working version of 1.5.1 I made the mistake of doing a fresh install before that trick came out and ... well... 10GB is a lot of space to be storing multiple copies, so I ditched the old one.

I know this is a little off topic, but.....

I run STO in a Wineskin and it works really well. I updated it with Legacy of Romulus and it still worked after that. Great work.


However, I also have Neverwinter in a copy of the same Wineskin. This worked fine until the latest patch - after which it gets to the EULA screen and the mouse and keyboard no longer work, so I can't accept and move on. The Launcher lets me login, but I can't actually get into the game.


As both games are now with PerfectWorld, I had assumed the Wineskin would work for both - which was true until the last patch of Neverwinter - despite the 'patch' of STO being a much larger update.


Any help please?

I'm unsure what you mean by this cidstorm? When i downloaded the version 1.6.0 UMV in the first thread and i think my mac unzipped it automatically, possibly said 'unarchiving'? My problem is now i put my 1.5.1 cryptic studios folder into the drive c>Programme Files folder but now when i click on the star trek.app in the 1.6.0 folder the screen brightness kicks up a knotch then theres a minute delay and just a white window pops up with star trek online at the top but nothing else, not even says 'loading...' i thought it was about activating 'wininet' in woinetricks to allow internet access to 1.6.0 but this didnt help... can some one offer more advice?

thanks myrddinwooding

Sorry, you seem to be doing everything right up until activating wines internet thing. When you installed, did you make sure not to create any shortcuts or desktop icons within wine, these options are given on the initial install inside of wine.
