This guide is only intended for Mac users hence the Title.
I will not be replying to anything related/ based on Windows.
If you need a Windows guide. I’m sure Mr. Tommy can help you with that https://community.ragnarevival.com/index.php?/topic/66-revivalro-installation-guide/
Alright enough blabbering.
A copy of the full client/RO Folder.
Why you ask? The installation setup does not work with my method.
Therefore we need a zipped/compressed version that we can extract to a specific location.
You can get the Full Client zip here http://downloadeu.ragnarevival.com/RevivalRO.zip
Just a Fancy GUI that will make your life easier and allow you to bundle together your windows based applications
to run with wine. This is whats gonna allow you to play RevivalRO on a Mac.
Not gonna go into too much detail here. That’s why we have google.
To Download head over to their site http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/tiki-index.php
Unzip it and drag it over to your applications
Now you should be able to see wineskin winery in your launchpad.
Now launch Wineskin Winery and you should have something looking like this
Update the wrapper version and install
Next you need to install the engine/version of wine to use
click on the big + button and make sure you have selected the same version I have.
Download & Install
After downloading/installing, it should now look like this
Create a new blank wrapper
Call it w.e you’d like
You’ll then get a popup asking to allow/accept incoming connections. Allow it.
Now we need to navigate to the folder where our wrapper was created press SHIFT+CMD+G
Replace my name/home folder with the name of your Home folder.
Right click on the wrapper and show package contents
Launch/double click on wineskin
Click Install software
Choose copy a folder inside option
Now it’s time to copy over the RO folder. Like I stated before the setup installation won’t work
with my method. Therefore download the zipped version linked on this guide and unzip/extract it on your Mac.
Navigate to where you downloaded/extracted your RO folder once you’ve clicked on the copy a folder inside option.
Now give it time to copy the folder and all its files.
When it’s done a window will popup asking you to choose an executable file here you will pick Revival Patcher.exe
Click -> OK you’ll be back to the previous window
Here you’ll click on the Advance option
Click on set screen options and uncheck Auto detect GPU info for Direct3D -> Done
Now we have to install some Microsoft redistributable packages required to run RO
Head-over to the Tools tab and click on winetricks under the utilities section
On this window click on the update winetricks button -> OK -> then go over to the dlls dropdown section
Look for vcrun2008, vcrun2010, vcrun2012 & vcrun2013 and have them checked/ticked then
-> Run and go through each installation process.
Now click the close button and you should be back on the previous window
Tab back over to the options section and check/tick -> Option key works as Alt
Now we're set but not quite
We now have to choose our graphic device and adjust our resolution through the setup.
It is now possible to launch the setup via the RevivalRO Patcher. It's a nice feature/addon without the hassle
or the need to change the executable every time you want to adjust your resolution.
Now you should be able to launch the wrapper through spotlight or launchpad
If your function keys are not working how you intended/hoped for you may need to go to your System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts ->
( Here you might need to uncheck/configure some shortcuts So that your function keys can work in RevivalRO like they should )
You might also need to adjust your mouse pointer/tracking speed to your liking when in game.
I'll assume you know how to do that.
As of now you’ll only be able to have one instance/client running
This Guide will get updated soon for dual clienting so stay tuned for that
but you should at least be able to run/play RevivalRO now.
The experience will ofc be different on a Mac and you’ll have to setup shortcuts in game for certain things
that just work on windows by default.
