The directions are extremely complicated. Yeah, I'm a noob - whatever. But, my hunch is that if I just knew what to put in a config file, this would work. I think it is ridiculous that I cannot just click "install". I really have to compile and do all these steps? Seriously?
The directions are not really complicated at all. You are just nor understanding them.
You need to do three things (the second one is a bit complicated, though):
1. install Ultima VII from GOG
2. follow the instructions at http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#gog_mac
(paste each red colored line in terminal one by one - so you can see directly when an error occurs)
3. start the downloaded exult.app from the Exult download page
Trust me you do NOT need to compile. First it wouldn't help you one bit and second the compile instructions are there so people who want to are able to do that.
I did write these instructions, I did *compile* that exult.app so you don't have to. TRUST me. I know what I'm doing!!!
When I told you to copy/paste the contents of your terminal window, it was in the context of following the instructions at http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#gog_mac]http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#gog_mac]http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#gog_mac
Please, it is important that you correctly read what I'm writing. If you had followed those instructions, you would have something in your terminal window.
Problem is, I can't find a config file anywhere, so I don't think one even exists (tried looking in the location from the readme and also tried showing contents of the Exult app and drilling down further).
Believe me, there IS an exult.cfg file at the correct location. it's just that people don't know the difference between ~/library/preferences and /library/preferences.
Well, sorry. Last time I pasted the terminal stuff, it did not work. This time, I pasted it from the link you provided and it worked... Go figure... Perhaps I did something wrong before. In any case, I opened Exult and now it is working. Sorry if it was frustrating helping me. Thanks for taking time to help me. Really do appreciate it. :)
