Recommended Posts

It has been a couple of years since I have been here LOL
I recently felt fall coming and decided I needed a bit of NOLF nostalgia. but I now run a Mac M1 and thought oh no that might be a road blocker....

Nope!  
I will share with anyone the process of getting it working 
Just ping me here.
proof below hehe
the the admins I have a Crossover Bottle I can share with your all in one install installed if you like.

I have a exported bottle that other Crossover users can import and use.

I am verifying import and use and will share a link to a temp public Repo for you to grab the file. it is 2.11 gig

Let me know if you have another method

That works.

The Files have been made available in the Downloads section.
Any issues raise them here and I will do my best to help.

this should work on Any Mac that can run Crossover and will probably run on any Linux box running Crossover. 
I have not tested Linux so if someone can it would be a boon!

one other thing to note is they double in size on import.

nolf1 1.5 gig imported
Nolf2 4.6 gig imported

Hi m00k,  

I just tested with the newest version of Crossover. 

Some updates ran in the background and nothing showed but give it enough time and it shows the start screen.

start a game and it will give you a black screen.....  that will eventually after about 2 minutes start.  after that it works perfectly!

 

I set things up to auto update.

 

I hope this helps...

Other thing that I wonder is did you import the bottle before running it?

Nolf 2 requires a lot of config and if you tried to run the bottle without importing it that not installs will run despite being there before the application loads.

Another possibility

Thanks so much for the fast reply!!

I did import the bottle first, like for NOLF 1 where it worked.

However, I found the solution to be amazingly simple: I simply installed NOLF2 again with the installer I got from http://nolfrevival.tk/, in the already fitted out bottle. Tadaa! Magic 🙂

O much fun to have this beautifully rendered on my M1 Pro MacBook Pro !

 

Now I am experimenting to see whether I can install Contract Jack in one of those bottles as well. Just because it is there, I did not know about that game before this week, to be honest.

Fun, this!

By the way, Xaoc: I am Dutch, but I bought NOLF2 Mac during a holiday in Canada (St John's Newfoundland to be precise) when it was released.

Getting the help and inspiration to revive it from a Canadian is very fitting and appreciated!

I am so glad that worked!  

 

I have tried Contract Jack but it is not as fun as Nolf... I am a huge NOLF fan lol been playing since the game was released lol
Love the Humor and hilarious dialogue!  LOL
