    Hello,

    When I try to run hw 2 in snow leopard, it instantly crashes. On 10.5 it worked fine. Any fix for this?

    yeah the snow leopard compatibility thing says version 1.1.1 will work but version 1.1 will not, however i have version 1.1.1 and it still crashes immediately. this is one of my favorite games and it would really be a bummer if it dosnt work anymore. anyone have any ideas of how to fix it

    I haven't heard of anyone who has it working on SL; my recommendation is to go to http://support.aspyr.com/ and open a ticket about HW2 on Snow Leopard.

    I got it working in Snow Leopard! You just have to uncheck "Disable mouse acceleration in game"! :D

    I just tried to run the Homeworld 2 installer on SL and it didn't lanuch at all.
    (No errors just disappears from the dock instantly).

    I attempted to just copy an install from a G5 10.4 install and Homeworld 2 launches but reports the serial is expired and to re-install - which I cannot do.

    Can anyone advise how/where the serial lives for homeworld 2 so I can just copy my valid serial from 10.4 to SL?

    So did those who have it working on 10.6 reinstall it on SL or migrate it from an older OS?

    My installer will not launch?

    I installed it on Snow Leopard and had no problems with the installer. Can you post what gets outputted to the system log in the Console when you run the installer?

    Thanks - now knowing the installer should work in SL, I dug up a backup of my HW2 install CD. This install was fine...I just had assumes it was a SL issue as my original CD open and listed without errors - I even created a image copy without getting an error.
    So HW2 is running fine now.

    How do you do this when the game won't load? The launcher loads for me, but when I click play, I get "Homeworld 2 quit unexpectedly" with a box offering to send a report to Apple. How do you set this setting without loading the game?

    Edit: I installed the Patch, which gave me access to this option in the installer, but it still doesn't work, even when I set "Disable mouse acceleration". I get a black screen briefly and then the same "Homeworld 2 quit unexpectedly" window. Any ideas?

    Edit Edit: Okay, cancel that, it works *without* clicking "Disable mouse acceleration". Go figure!

    Stuart.

    What?

    Ok, you said to disable mouse acceleration in game, but how the heck am I supposed to do that if I can't even open the game?
    I looked around to see if this could be done on OSX, and apparently there are tools, but they suck.

    Here is the error code

    there is a simple fix, just hold down Option when the game is starting and UNCHECK "Disable mouse acceleration in game" and voila :D

    Install patch?

    How do you go about installing the 1.1.1 update from 1.1.0?

    Easy

    The 1.1.1 update is just a new application: download it, decompress it, and drag it into your Homeworld 2 folder. You'll be asked if you want to replace the existing app, say that you do and all is well.

    Has anyone ever found a solution for the Serial number error message? According to the Aspyr website, you need to delete a package file in the Library/receipts directory. I also applied the 1.1.1 patch, but I still get the Serial Number error message.
