I recently had an issue when running Dreamweaver CC 2015 – with it constantly crashing on my mac when trying to use its ‘Find and Replace‘. The ‘Find and Replace’ popup would not appear and the app would just crash giving me a report error message popup instead! So I looked all across the web and did everything such as deleting several files in the user folder… trying to install it from scratch. But sadly nothing worked and it still kept on crashing.
But then I tried running the app using the ‘root‘ user and it worked fine which gave me the clue where to start looking. So here is my solution.
I recently transferred my old Macbook Pro content to my new Macbook Pro using Time Machine transfer. All the data went across fine but one thing I noticed was the date and time was out by an hour. Then when trying to change the settings in System Preferences -> Date & Time I would get the following popup with the message ‘Could Not load Date & Time preference pane‘. After many hours of searching I found the answer… or at least it worked for me.
Zodiac is a Deus Ex MOD which is a set of six single player missions for Deus Ex 1. A little rundown on the MOD is that it takes place just after JC Denton leaves Tracer Tong to find clues at the Versalife building in Hong Kong. You play the part of Paul Denton and it takes you to the CIA headquarters in Langley through to Buenos Aires.
If you want to install this, first you need to install Deus Ex (Read the tutorial here). This is just a short post to get it to install and work on a Mac Wineskin installation.
The reason for me writing this ‘How to‘ was to find a native way of playing Crysis Warhead (2008 version) on Mac OS X rather than via something like bootcamp and a windows installation. And after loads of installing and testing… again and again etc… I finally managed to sort out the process to get it working.
UPDATE: has been revised to work with MAC OS 10.10.5. So if below doesn’t work for your older Mac OS just leave a comment and I will archive/publish the old version of this post. Also works with 10.11 (El Capitan) but needs Wineskin 2.6.1+
Okay first things first – the actual reason for me writing this ‘How to‘ was to find a native way of playing Deus Ex 1 (2000 version) on Mac OS X rather than via something like bootcamp and a windows installation. The only version ever released for the Apple Mac was natively Mac OS 9 which as we all know is now long gone. Plus this is the important bit it’s still the number one game for me of all time!
