rFactor 1255c

Hi all,

I installed rFactor 1255c using the installer in the link. (http://rfactor.net/web/rf1/buyonline2/)
After that the demo of the game runs fine so far. But when I want to activate the game using my code received after purchase nothing happens. The activation doesn't seem to work. Is there anything I can try to debug this problem? I've read it might be possible using winetricks but I know it's not allowed in PlayOnMac.

The Debugger gives me this:
[04/12/13 10:02:36] - Running wine- rFactor.exe (Working directory : /Users/cgtobi/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/rfactor_/drive_c/Program Files/rFactor)
fixme:ole:CoInitializeSecurity (0x0,-1,0x0,0x0,0,3,0x0,0,0x0) - stub!
fixme:wbemprox:wbem_locator_ConnectServer 0x14ec08, L"ROOT\\\\CIMV2", (null), (null), (null), 0x00000000, (null), 0x0, 0x33f848)
fixme:wbemprox:wbem_locator_ConnectServer 0x155110, L"ROOT\\\\CIMV2", (null), (null), (null), 0x00000000, (null), 0x0, 0x33f93c)
[snip]
and the last line repeats over and over until I exit the game.

Thanks in advance for any help or hint.

Cheers,
T0Be

Well, you are probably missing a dependency. Id say, first off, install IE6 into the virtual drive that you installed rFactor into, and try again. Most games/applications that need to access the internet need at least IE6 installed. Do this like so:

Open PlayOnLinux -> Configure -> click the virtual drive for rFactor -> Install Components tab-> IE6

I tried that. Both IE6 and IE8 but neither did help and the situation is pretty much unchanged.

Hmmm. Im pretty sure that IE6 and IE8 install wininet.

Can you try to install wininet again, and see if that works? Also, after you install it, go to:

playonmac -> configure -> click the virtual drive -> wine -> Configure Wine

and make sure that your Windows version is set where it should be. I noticed that after installing IE6/IE8, it sets it to windows 2000. Its worth checking.

Im also wondering what install wbem stuff. If memory serves correctly, its part of msxml, but again, I could be wrong. Im trying to look into this.

PS: I have never heard of this game, but I looked it up..... NICCCCEEE. Beautiful job on the cars (I used to be in to racing imports, and am addicted to Forza. haha). I think Im going to purchase this one.

I did all that. What I noticed is that now when I click on 'purchase' I get an error message that 'winebrowser.exe' crashed. Yesterday I am pretty sure that a link opened in Safari.

Ok. so it may have pooched the install.

Also, did you use the PlayOnMac rFactor install script?

[i]Edit: Just noticed that it doesnt have a compatible Mac script. [/i]

Its here:

Here is something else that I have noticed:

This is from the rFactor script; its about 3.5 years out of date. Im willing to bet the script needs to be updated to reflect changes that have come out now. 1255c just came out, but their site says that the activation was still the same as the previous version. Although, I cant even imagine how many subversions and whatnot they have had since 2009, which is why the script would need updating.

But, this is only if you used the script.

So, I downloaded this script, and it said the following:

ATTENTION="Please note that this game has a copy protection system\\nand sadly, it prevents Wine from running the game.\\n\\nPlayOnLinux will not provide any help concerning any illegal\\nstuff."

Citar


So, it looks as though their copy protection, even if the game is legit, doesnt work without a crack or something.

Now, this may have changed in the last few years. Wine has made tremendous leaps since then, so Im going to see what I can do to get this script up to date, if thats even possible. :)

Edit: The script is now in the PlayOnMac "testing" section when you click "Install" on POM. I need it tested to see if it works. The activation and all of that does, but I cannot test the rendering on my Vbox OSX

Ok, I reinstalled with your script but unfortunately the activation still doesn't work. I installed winiet and IE6, but still, no luck. I get an winebrowser.exe error when clicking purchase.
Also installing IE8 didn't help.

I also noticed that I got some error during the installation but I can't find the log file for the installation to investigate any further.

Ok, so you shouldnt be installing ANYTHING extra. I tested that script working. It doesnt need ANYTHING else to be running. The only thing different on my OSX machine is the fact that I have Chrome installed. Thats it. Other than that, its a stock install of OSX.

And again, like stated in the other thread, you can simply just go online, purchase, and get your activation code to activate. When I click the activate button, it opens up my web browser. I dont see why it wouldnt work on yours.

I can post screenshots of it working, if needed. I really wish we had someone else or a different mac to test this on, considering this script fixed the issue on my end (except it opened up Chrome on OSX, not safari), and its still doing the same thing on yours, then we need a 3rd mac user to test this out.
