[21 Feb 2008] Problem with hollywood designer and MacOS

Hello

I have made a hollywood designer-presentation, and compiled it for macOS

When I try to run it (using a intel-machine with macOS 10.5.2), it begins to open the window, but then chrashes with the following message :

Cannot read file Backgrounds/ferrulemedia.jpg ! File :demo bleking.hws (current line : 17 - in function : LoadBGPic. I have added a screenshot.

when i looked in my hws-script , line 17 was like this : LoadBGPic(1, "Backgrounds/ferrulemedia.jpg")

Do anyone know why this doesn't work ?

Currently, the Mac OS build requires all files that use relative path specifications ("Backgrounds/ferrulemedia.jpg" is a relative path specification) to be relative to the generated executable.

Thus, you need to place your "Backgrounds" folder (and all other data that is used by your program) to where the executable is. Under Mac OS X, the executable is hidden inside the application bundle in

"demo bleking.app/Contents/MacOS"

So you need to copy your "Backgrounds" and "Brushes" folders to

"demo bleking.app/Contents/MacOS/Backgrounds" and "demo bleking.app/Contents/MacOS/Brushes"

It should work then.

Hi,

and where to put Amiga Bitmap Fonts ?

I tried

Code: Select all

"demo bleking.app/Contents/MacOS/Fonts/GoudyB.font" 
"demo bleking.app/Contents/MacOS/Fonts/GoudyB/48" 
But when I try and run the app under OS 10.4 I always get a "Font not found" message.

I changed the behaviour in Hollywood 3.1. Now you need to put the file to where the app is, i.e.

Code: Select all

"demo bleking.app/Fonts/GoudyB.font" 
"demo bleking.app/Fonts/GoudyB/48" 
Then it should work.

Hallo,

I tried to try it again with your CircleText-Demo.

The files are structured like this:

Code: Select all

12.macmini:> dir CircleText.app/ all
     Contents (dir)
          MacOS (dir)
            CircleText
          Resources (dir)
            CircleText.icns
       Info.plist
     Fonts (dir)
          goudyb (dir)
            23                               48
       goudyb.font
What's wrong with this ?

Ciao, Jean

You've placed the Fonts directory inside the app bundle but it must be outside of it, e.g.

Code: Select all

/CircleText/CircleText.app
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents/MacOS
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents/MacOS/CircleText
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents/Resources
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents/Resources/CircleText.icns
/CircleText/CircleText.app/Contents/Info.plist
/CircleText/Fonts/goudyb/23
/CircleText/Fonts/goudyb/48
/CircleText/Fonts/goudyb.font
