Solution for Mac OSX Speech and 3D0 Music Files!
« on: February 19, 2007, 09:07:39 pm »

Hi.  I had a lot of trouble with getting the speech and music files to work on Mac OSX but there is a solution!  Behold! here's what you do.

1.) In Safari go to Preferences and uncheck "Open "safe" files after download".  This will prevent Safari from unzipping the speech and music packs automatically!  I think this is the problem most people were having.

2.) Download Speech file.  Download 3D0 music file.

3.)Ctrl-Click each zip file and go to "Get Info".  Then delete the .zip extension!  The extension should be .uqm now.

4.)Follow ReadMe for MacOSX users!  [i.e. place uqm files in Contents:Resources:Content:packages!

You know, MIE on Windows does the same thing when manually downloading the UQM files.  I had that issue when I ran the installer after downloading the files, it couldn't find the .uqm.zip files that MIE had "helpfully" renamed.

Are these browsers second-guessing the file names based on MIME type?  Why are they renaming files without the users' consent?  Gah!  Such a simple problem but it's obnoxious that it exists at all!

Step #3 is mostly unnecessary -- UIO accepts .zip files as well as .uqm files (which only makes sense, as .uqm files are just renamed .zip files)

Were you having problems when trying to use .zip files?  Because if so, that's a bug.
