Hello,

I bought a copy of RTCW last week and have been unable to install it! I followed the instructions precisely: click installer, select destination, and all is well BUT then it hangs on 2 of 15 files installed (macwolfparms.txt)...and hangs, and hangs...I have to force quit to stop this.

Specs: ibook g4 1.2 ghz power pc 1.25 gb ram ATI radeon 9200 plenty of drive space left

Any suggestions are appreciated...many thanks!

Cheers/Ar k

Try copying the cd to the hard drive and run it from there.

Thanks...but tried copying CD to HD and no change. I also tried wiping the disc, to make sure it was clean. I did a custom install as well, but it still hangs...and hangs...and I force quit.

I also tried to install from my ext. DVD/CD drive to no avail. Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks/Ar k

Close down all running programs. Also virus scanners/firewalls. Anything that could block the installer.

You could try installing in 'safe mode'. Restart your computer and hold f8. A menu will come up, select safe mode by scrolling to it with the arrow keys.

If that fails go back to the store and get a new copy.

*NL| Pure, arkadin has a mac, you probably know how to do this arkadin but just in case,

Learn how to start up Mac OS X 10.2 or later in Safe Mode.

To start up into Safe Mode (to "Safe Boot"), do this:

1. Be sure the computer is shut down. 2. Press the power button. 3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, press and hold the Shift key. Tip: The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before. 4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple and progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

During the startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.

During the startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.

To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.

I have searched all over to see if anyone has had the same problem but could find nothing.
