Having a problem with The Xtra Editors for Mac

You can't get the Mac MPQ2k to work with GUEdit 3.6. You can open GUEdit 3.6 since it uses Java, but it looks for MPQ2k.exe, the PC version. Unless GoldenUrg makes a new version of GUEdit that looks for the Mac file, Mac users can't use it at all.

then whats the mac verson of mpq2k.exe? and the lmpqapi.dl, storm.dll, and starcraft.exe?

It is essentially the same name without the .exe at the end. GUEdit looks for the .exe as well, which Mac programs can't have in order to run.

For programs, Macs use no extensions. MPQ2K is simpy called MPQ2k, no extentio at all.

Oh and does anyone know where I can find Emerald Editor for OS X? I found it awhile back and now when I open it, I see on the dock that it opens Emerald then the StarEdit icon starts bouncing, but then they both quit. So obviously I need a new version of it. The only one I saw on the "Mac Customs Lair" doesn't work on my computer for some unknown reason. It says "Item 'StarEdit Emerald' is used by Mac OS X and cannot be opened" and then when I click OK another pop-up comes saying "The Operation Could Not Be Completed" "An unexpected error occurred (error code -50)." Any suggestions?

Have you tried downloading the emerald aspects editors from mac customs , and just using the emerald version of the aspects? It might be a tinytiny bit different but owell. Just go to page one of this post and repeat the same process that I told the other guy to use (except with the 'emerald' aspect)

You'll see it when you download it

Yeah I tried it and it didn't work. It just opened up StarEdit with no differences in it. I also tried a separate way that someone at BlizzForums uggested but that didn't work either.

I've tried this. Basically what happens is Emerald immediately quits once I try to open it.

GUEdit can be run on a Mac, it is written in Java. What you need is the MRJ (Mac Java Runtime). The reason it wont open is not because its a Windoze local program, its because of the MPQ files that it requires.

After you install, you must use the wizard.
Use the wizard to install all five editors by clicking them.
After this, click Start, go to your normal Starcraft directory and it should be located there.

Emerald Problems

I just downloaded Emerald 3.5.4, but for some reason it won't work. Tells me:

"The application 'StarEdit' could not be opened because 'Storm--CreateSoundBuffer__12IDirectSoundFP13_DSBUFFERDESCPP18IDirectSoundBufferP8IUnknown' could not be found.

You may need to install a newer version of 'Storm--CreateSoundBuffer__12IDirectSoundFP1'"

But I can use StarEdit with no problem. This only happens when I try to open Emerald. Anyone know what the deal is? I am trying to get this to run on a Mac G4 9.1. Thanks for any help in advance.

Sorry to bring this topic back alive, but I have been trying to find an OSX/Carbon version of StarEdit.

I have tried StarFire but that needs StarEdit (Carbon) and I even tried StarEdit Emerald, and it gives me an SMPQ Error (Which I'll be able to post later when I'm at home rather than at school).

If Emerald -doesn't- give me teh error, it's because its pointed at the Classic version of StarEdit...


Heh, to answer your probable question about 'Why doesn't he have Classic/OS 9 installed?' My father said he forgot to install it and he won't install it till the harddrive is backed up.

If anyone could send me some links/files via email, that would be greatly appreciated.

I can be contacted @:
sacmorelven@gmail.com - Email
or
sacmorelven - AIM

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
