Well i will explain my problem with 10.5.2.

I decided to install my American Mcgee's Alice game in 10.5.2. Once installed before you can run the 1.1.2 update for the universal binary patch. You have to run the game without the patch installed. So the first time run of the game can create the config.cfg file in your base folder. This sounds simple enough not really.

Here is the problem.

If you try to run Alice under mac os x leopard 10.5.2 without the universal binary update the game icon just flashes in the dock and shuts off.

In order for the game to work under leopard you need to install the 1.1.2 universal binary patch but this binary patch doesn't create the config file on startup and gives you this error if you try to run the game

Cannot load "config.cfg"

So does anyone know where i can go to just download the config.cfg file from inside the base folder so i can get my game to work.

I figured it out.

You have to boot into tiger and save a backup of the config.cfg files from your alice base directory.

Then you install alice and apply the patch then copy the config.cfg over into the base directory and the game works.

Here is what you do copy the config file i sent you into the base folder inside the american mcgees alice game folder.

Then update to the 1.1.2 patch the game will function again

I'd just like to say thanks to both of you.

Thanks to you two I discovered a really fun game for the Mac and managed to get it working under leopard.

No problem.

I know running American Mcgee's Alice can be tough under leopard. But this also goes to prove that certain studio's don't care about gamers.

Can someone please send me the leopard fix so I can play Alice. I'm dying to play it and it won't work. Help! Watch LordVega's videos of the game Alice! He's funny! That's how I discovered the game.
