I'm try to figure out the real status. Does UT2004 run in Leopard on Intel, or only on PPC? Does repairing permissions in Leopard break UT2004?

So I'd be grateful for the following answers from people:

1. Can you run UT2004 in Leopard? (If not, what happens?)

2. Are you on PPC or Intel?

3. Have you repaired permissions in Leopard?


My answers:

1. No. A short bounce and then a crash-report window, which has a log showing "dyld: Library not loaded: @executable_path/libSDL-1.2.0.dylib"

2. Intel.

3. Yes, I did repair perms--but I never tried UT2004 beforehand so I don't know if that's an issue.

Thanks!

(PS, if you're doing a fresh install and the installer itself won't launch, get this updated installer. And you'll want the latest patch for the game.)

Try going to ~/users/X/Library/Application Support/ and delete the Unreal Tournament 2004 folder. That worked for me.

Macbook Pro and PowerMac G5... both work fine with UT2004.

Just remember if you delete your Application Support UT2004 folder you are deleting all your game settings. So don't empty trash until you're sure that's the issue.

...but you probably knew that anyway.

My answers:

1. No, Displays Splash screen then it crashes.

2. Intel Mac Pro 2.6 7300gt

3. Tried before repair permissions and crashed, repaired permissions and crash anyway

Weeks on this problem cant find any info yet =(

So. UT
Installed the demo on my 1.67 PPC Powerbook and it worked great.

Yesterday I installed the full version on my 2.0 G5 PPC and it worked great too. I have yet to install the latest version of the game though.

Both machines have the latest version of Leopard.

I don't remember if I have repaired permissions since I installed the program.

i just copied my Unreal Tournament 2004 folder from my iPod onto my new 20" iMac. (saved having to download patches) and it works without a hitch. i just didn't copy my progress data, but no biggie.

Runs great on my Mac Pro dual 3.0 with X1900XT and I play every day or two for a couple of hours.

1, Yes, runs very well. Seen it running on a few MacBooks and another MacBook Pro in school, all under Leopard. Runs great.

2, Intel, although it did run on my G3 (although it was closer to a slideshow than a game, plus it was only under Tiger)

3, Nope, never repaired permissions in Leopard.
