Ugh, sorry guys, I've been somewhat busy with college life so I haven't visited this stuff in a while. I'm still not sure what's causing the .NET problem with the listview of installed packages not showing, but I think it's relatively new, either with regard to the Plugin Manager or to some newer version of wine. This will require a bit of thinking.

With regard to the wineserver PID thing, could you guys provide a bit more context (when/how did it first start, etc.)

@Jaydaya: Really? I didn't notice any change in my install of the BP, but I guess I haven't thoroughly tested it since 1.1. Remind me, did you install the BP into the addons folder?

@svenje: This will likely work, but I advise caution, as you might accidentally install the BP inside the Plugin Manager wrapper itself, instead of in your game's install. Also, I think the wineskin Install Windows Program function may ask for the .exe to open when the wrapper is executed (although I'm not entirely certain), so if you do try this, make sure you link back to XPluginManager.exe

I downloaded the bonus pack.exe
started wine then install windows program.

The bonus pack.exe is a windows program so I choose that to install.

the destination was the folder where u put the "fake" X3ap.exe in.

if you bought it from app store it should be in

Contents >> Resources >> Data


Thanks, I'll try that this evening and report back. I'm running from the Direct2Mac version as the disc version doesn't yet have a standalone 3.2 update from VP but I have the dummy .exe in the right place I believe.

@icEPiraka: the Wineserver PID error occured minutes before I posted. It was the first time I had ever installed it, the plugin manager or anything to do with modifying any game and it happened during the first run through of the instructions in the OP at the point of opening the command line tool.

Edit: I'm not too fussed with modifying the game past getting the bonus pack for CAG etc. so as long as I can get that running, I can live without having to access Cycrows whatsit.

Just a quick "thank you" to the author. I can finally delete my Windows partition, which was being maintained exclusively to play X3-TC.

What I did is was right click on the X3:AP icon then show info.

at the bottom you will see what users has the rights to change the program.

I gave all users in that list " Read and write " rights.
That did the trick.

Hope it works for you also

if you rightclick on the folder Contents >> Resources >> data is that data folder also all read and write ?

If you know what I mean.

I saw that only giving the X3:AP aplication the full rights it didn't change for all the folders.

Aright guys. I apologize for my great hiatus, I've been rather busy as of late. But now, because of updates to wine, I believe all problems with the Plugin Manager's windows have been solved. Expect imminent release.

Also, I realize my instructions for installing the Bonus Pack are incredibly complex, and therefore incredibly stupid. All you need to do is perform a right click on the Bonus Pack .exe, select Open With, and use the Plugin Manager to open the installer.

Edit: Update Complete.

v. 1.2 (4/23/2012)
Updated Wrapper and Wine versions. All glitches with regards to .NET and windows should be eliminated.
Mod Merger app now available.

Ice and all, thanks for all work.

Is there now an updated instruction set to install the bonus pack?

I want to install the bonus pack, but with the earlier versions and revisions of the various programs involved, I'm confused and hesitant to start. I'm fairly new to the Mac. Thanks!
