Ghost Recon on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later

Recommended Posts

Was trying to play my old favorite and the wrapper is not working.  Found this thread and amazed to see people still working on this game... awaiting the new wrapper...

The new wrapper for macOS 10.13 High Sierra is now available for download (I've updated the opening post with a new working download link).

Sorry that it took a little longer than expected, but I also added a couple of new features to the wrapper that should make the longer wait worthwhile. :)

That's awesome.  Thanks a lot.

The wrapper works awesome.  I have a dumb question though.  I've tried every key, but cannot open any doors.  How is this done?

Nevermind - I had the key mapped to something else.  It took me forever to figure that out.

Updated the wrapper again. Fixed some graphics driver issues with High Sierra (visual artifacts) and (hopefully) improved compatibility with different Mac / macOS combos. Should now also be easier to install GR and mods via executable, e.g. GOG installer. Auto-resolution for Retina displays and windowed play should work a little better, too. For those interested, Rainbow Six: Black Ops, Raven Shield, and Sum of All Fears all work too and are automatically added to the menu when installed at their default location (Program Files/Red Storm Entertainment/). Will probably try to make their detection less strict in future versions.

I tried to get GameRanger to work, but so far no luck. Apparently, for PC that stupid thing needs the bug-ridden virus magnet Adobe Flash Player... didn't even know this relict from the stone-age still existed🤮

Would love for people to leave some feature requests! Dunno whether to work on e.g. Steam/GameRanger support first, or rather add automated/unattended GR dedicated server functionality, or expand support for other games, or...

Having trouble with the latest wrapper from May 15.

OS 10.12.6

I an existing setup inside the old wrapper with mods and my own custom kits etc.

When I run the new wrapper, it prompts for existing Ghost Recon. I point it to my existing folder in .../Program Files/Red Storm Entertainment/Ghost Recon

Next the wrapper prompts to Move or Copy. If I choose Copy I get this error-

Error: 1

rm: /private/var/folders/yl/90zyfwz51vbdxyg93s8ym9q80000gn/T/AppTranslocation/DFF1AF07-EAFD-4335-A84E-38288C115225/d/Ghost Recon.app/Ghost Recon.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/Program Files/Red Storm Entertainment//Ghost Recon/: Read-only file system

In: _install_gr_gamefolder

I am still able to run the game by launching the Ghost Recon.app inside the Ghost Recon.app package. BUT I really liked the built-in menu actions you put into your wrapper. Those were really helpful.

ApexMods-

Could you attach an editable spreadsheet file of the Heroes Unleashed Weapons.pdf from the xtras folder?

I would very much like to do some sorting, filtering and highlighting of the different weapons. Any format would be okay. 

Please and thank you!

Eric
