HOW TO: Install the client in MAC OSX

Post by hfnhl »

**** UPDATED Friday, 9th December, 2016 ****

** RE-INSTALLED onto a mid 2010 MacBook Pro running MacOSX 10.10.5 (Yosemite)

1) Install XQuartz

https://www.xquartz.org

This will work for any MacOSX version after 10.6.3



2) Install Mono Framework

http://www.go-mono.com/mono-downloads/download.html

Select the MACOSX version --



3) Download the STHS MONO Client

http://sths.simont.info/Download_En.php

For this install, I used STHS Client V3 for Mac and Linux Only - v3.0.9
http://sths.simont.info/DownloadFiles.p ... -3-0-9.zip


4) Unzip the file you downloaded in Step 3. After unzipping, move the Client (SimonTHockeySimulator.exe) into your main user folder on your Mac.


In your Mac Finder it is the MAIN directory, in my case it's my name, it has the little house icon, it's the base directory for the computer, other folders include your Documents, Downloads, Applications etc., folders.

Included in the zip folder with SimonTHockeySimulator.exe is a readme.txt file. READ IT. It's helpful. I've included the instructions from here below, as it helped me.


5) Download the .stc league file and move it into the same folder as your SimonTHockeySimulator.exe file.


This is the file you get from your league, with all your players.


6) Rename the file SimonTHockeySimulator.exe, that you had already moved into your main folder.

If you downloaded v2 of the file, change the name of SimonTHockeySimulator.exe to SimonTHockeySimulator-v2.exe.

If you downloaded v3 of the file, change the name of SimonTHockeySimulator.exe to SimonTHockeySimulator-v3.exe.


7) Open XQuartz (found in your APPLICATIONS folder UTILITIES)


Once XQuartz is open, look under the Applications pull-down menu (in the task bar at the top of your screen, next to the apple logo), and click on APPLICATIONS, and select TERMINAL (or just hit CMD-N)


8) A terminal window will open (called "xterm") and in the window you will see this:

bash-3.2$

TYPE into the window the follow

mono SimonTHockeySimulator-v3.exe


(or mono SimonTHockeySimulator-v2.exe if you're running version 2)

9) I got a warning inside the terminal window of QuartzX, saying "WARNING: The runtime version supported by this application is unavailable.
Using default runtime: v4.0.30319"


This is totally fine. Ignore it. And go to step 10.



10) WAIT....

I had to wait well over a minute before suddenly, the client opened on my screen. I was able to open the league file (.stc.) with no problems.

Hi Matthew,

I just bought STHS recently and I have some trouble to open the program on my Mac. I followed all the steps you mentionned, I just have one question. When you say the .stc file on the fifth step, where is it exactly? I don't find the client file on my Mac, and I think that's probably why I cannot open STHS. When I'm in the X11 program, it says that my file doesn't contain a valid CIL image.

Thanks in advance!

The FULL version of the STHS doesn't run on Mac OSX. Only the client version run on MAC OSX.

I got the client to work on my MAC but when I tried to save everything it gave me a new window that says access to my team file is denied. What's up with that?

do we have to wait one month or so for this next version or can we have this patched relatively quickly?

Thanks

Well it's my own personal laptop so I would assume that I'd have full access to all my folders. What would that matter? Do I need to delete everything and re install everything?
