    In "Witcher 1", I can't finish the "Source" quest in chapter 3. According to the witcher's forums this is a well-known bug. It can be bypassed by editing a save game: http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threads/11754-Broken-Quest-quot-The-Source-quot-Game-Stopper!/page3

    In order to do so, I need to run the Savegame Editor (a .jar file) with certain options. In Windows, this would be:
    javaw -DTW.install.path="C:\Games\The Witcher" -jar TWEditor.jar

    Does anyone know how I can translate these options to Mac OS? (I'm a not a complete noob, and have used basic terminal commands before)

    Thanks a lot!

    As long as you have java installed on your mac, you should be able to do the same by issuing the command:

    java -DTW.install.path="/Applications/The Witcher.app" -jar TWEditor.jar

    The above assumes that:
    1. You are located in the same directory where the TWEditor.jar is (otherwise you should use a full path to TWEditor.jar)

    2. The Witcher game is installed under /Applications and it is named "The Witcher.app"

    However, IIRC the witcher was a wrapped version from windows, so the actual game path will be different, and it will require the path where the "windows" game is located within the wrapper.

    In terminal: java -DTW.language=3 -DTW.install.path="/Users/konstantinberkov/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/The Witcher Enhanced Edition/The Witcher.app" -jar ~/Downloads/TWEditorEnhanced/TWEditor.jar

    I am using Witcher from Steam, so I have to use The Witcher.app which situated in Steam/steamapps/.../The Witcher.app, right? But I still getting error in start of editor: Localized strings database /Users/konstantinberkov/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/The Witcher Enhanced Edition/The Witcher.app/data/dialog_3.tlk does not exist

    I've tried language codes from 0 to 6 inclusive.
