problems installing game-file not found

Post by brudi303 »

Hi,

i just downloaded and set up the Macintosh emulator, which kind of seemed to have worked, to play the game "eastern mind: the lost souls of tong-nou". When I want to play it, it never works tho. I downloaded the .iso file of the game and put all the contents from the shared folder to the MacOS753 (hard disk i believe?) but when I click onto the icon it asks me "Where is TongNou:TongNou:d_logo?" (see picture) and I can not seem to find the file it is looking for. With the .iso file of the game, there also came along two other applications, which seem to run tho. One of them previews the characters so a little window opens and music starts to play, which makes it seem to me like it should work over all. The installation guide, which was in the download also tells me to put the qicktime folder into the macs system folder, which won't work either, because the files that I want to replace, apparently are in use it says. Might that be the problem causing thing? If not does maybe someone have an idea how I can solve that problem?

Thanks in advance!

Do not transfer files from a disk image file using the shared folder.
An .iso file is a disk image file, usually created from a CD. Add that file it to the volumes list in the BasiliskII GUI. The next time you launch BasiliskII, the CD disk will be mounted on the BasiliskII desktop. Best lock the image file in the host system to convince the software on the disk that is on a non-writeable CD.

Hi, thanks for the fast answer. Adding the .iso file to the volumes doesn't want to work either. Instead when I add it there and then start basilisk, the system doesn't work at all and I get this error sound whenever I try to do something. Is there something wrong with how I added it to the volumes?

I do not know what could be the issue. I tried it here in BasiliskII with the .iso downloaded from Macintosh Garden. The disk mounts and the game runs fine.

- Apparently you use BasiliskII on a OSX/macOS host. Which OSX or macOS version?
- Which BasiliskII build (date) do you use?

Also post the content of your BasiliskII prefs in your reply:

Launch Terminal (in /Application/Utilities/) and type at the prompt

Code: Select all

open ~/.basilisk_ii_prefs
followed by a return.
The file will open in your default text editor. Select all content and copy and paste it here in your reply.

Edit: You do not need to install the included QuickTime 2. QT 2.1 is already installed with System 7.5.3.

I am running macOS mojave 10.14.4 and downloaded the latest Basilisk from the 16th of May 2020 that you posted in the "Currently recommended BasiliskII builds for MacOSX/OSX/macOS:" thread.

After typing in the command into the Terminal it gives me this:
disk /Users/****/Basilisk ii/MacOS753
disk /Users/****/Basilisk ii/Eastern Mind (Mac-EN).iso
extfs /Users/****/Basilisk ii/shared

Should I maybe just try to setup the whole mac emulation again, since it seems to work for you? Maybe I messed up some minor stuff while installing...

I don't see any problems in your configuration. You could make a few adjustments, though:
- Give BasiliskII a little more RAM
- Disable JIT, it is not functional in this build
- Set Mac Model ID to Quadra 900. The indication "MacOS 8.x" is misleading. It will work fine with System 7.5 and later. Only for earlier System 7 versions one does indeed need to choose Mac IIci.

It is strange that your setup works without the CD .iso image and does not work when that image is added. Maybe something is wrong with the image file? Try a fresh download. I got mine from Macintosh Garden.

Changed the settings as you told and downloaded a fresh .iso version. Works now. Thanks a lot :)
