Title  Cloak Converter - Mac
Author  The Krit
Submitted / Updated  04-21-2008 / 05-09-2008
Category  Utility
Format  Other
This Mac utility will add colors to the newish (1.68) visible cloaks in NWN data files. Like Cloak Converter for Windows, it will work on saved games, modules, character files, etc., and it will automatically create backups. Or at least it should -- my Mac access is limited, so I have not been able to do extensive testing. I believe the current version is a universal binary that requires Mac OS X 10.4. (Trying to compile for 10.3.9 ran into problems that I'll only try to resolve if requested.) If I messed up somewhere, let me know, and I'll fix it when I can.

Currently, it is known that this utility will not work on database files (because they have a different format than other NWN files) and Premium Modules (because they are encrypted).

Players may find this useful for updating saved games, older modules, and character files in your local vault. If your saved game or module uses an old hakpak that overrides baseitems.2da, then you may lose the colors the next time you load your file. If this happens, you'll need to get an updated version of the hakpak.

If there's something missing, or you encounter a bug, let me know.

5/9 -- Universal binary version (I hope).

Guess I should post a status report. The current state of things appears to be that the download is a universal binary that requires two QT frameworks to run. Those that have QT should be able to use this. Those that don't... well, I've tried to relink this statically with the required libraries, but that hasn't worked out too well. Trying to package the required libraries with this program also did not work out. Maybe I have to assume users can install the frameworks themselves? That seems a bit more complicated for the user than I'd like.

I'll keep looking for other ways around this, but my Mac time is rather limited.

Works for me on an Intel Mac. Very nifty!

This last update runs on a PPC architecture. Unfortunately, it exits right away. When I look at the crashlog, I find the following entry:

Host Name: loki
Date/Time: 2008-05-14 09:43:32.338 +0200
OS Version: 10.4.11 (Build 8S165)
Report Version: 4

Command: Cloak Converter
Path: /Users/nicolas/Desktop/000001 - Annela - Valsharess/Cloak Converter
Parent: WindowServer [62]

Version: ??? (1.0)

PID: 648
Thread: Unknown

Link (dyld) error:

Library not loaded: QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore
Referenced from: /Users/nicolas/Desktop/000001 - Annela - Valsharess/Cloak Converter
Reason: image not found


The application was in the same folder than one of my saves' files.

New version uploaded. It's probably not ready for OS X 10.3.9 yet, but it should be a universal binary now.

I might have compiled an Intel-Mac version instead of a universal binary. Sorry about that. Can anyone confirm (or deny) this working on an Intel Mac (in case the problem is something else)?

It doesn't seem to work on my Powerbook G4. I'm running OS X 10.3.9. When I double click the program I get this message:
"You cannot open the application "Cloak Converter" because it may be damaged or incomplete."
I've downloaded it a couple of times with the same result.
Thanks for working on a Mac version.
