Red Storm Entertainment/Ghost Recon/Mods" folder is missing in the wrapper. Ideas?

You still have to install the PC version of Ghost Recon into the Wineskin wrapper. As the game isn't freeware (yet), I cannot supply a wrapper with the game pre-installed, sorry. You can find the game incl. expansions for as little as $10 though, and the installation is quite simple. Details here:

Enormously grateful for this work, but what do I do with the downloaded file? I'm an old guy with a passion for Ghost Recon and HU, but nothing I do seems to fire it up, unpack it, etc. My ratings are therefore for the previous version, which, although parts of it are temperamental and prone to crashing, the bits that work are exceptionally good.

BTW, try as I might I can't persuade the "Value" to rise above 4.5 stars. It deserves at least seven.

Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated!

To unpack the 7-zipped file I recommend using the latest version of The Unarchiver, which is free and can be found here:

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/22774/the-unarchiver

I used ultra high 7z compression on the archive to keep the download size as small as possible, so you'll need an extraction utility compatible with the latest 7-zip compression methods.

Working superbly well and I love it. Don't know where you find the time, or the talent. Thank you very much indeed for keeping GR up there with the best.

Thank you. I am developing Heroes Unleashed by myself and as a hobby in my very scarce spare time, so it is a slow progress that demands a lot of patience - from me, as well as you folks. :)

But in the end it is very rewarding to get another update out the door and to hear from people enjoying my work, like through your post here at MU.

I still have loads of plans for future updates, so hang in there - you ain't seen nothing yet! ;)

NOTE: Due to Apple's removal of Rosetta this, like Ghost Recon, will not run in 10.7 Lion unless via a Virtual Machine.

Yes, you're right. Sorry, should have mentioned this myself. Ghost Recon (and Heroes Unleashed) run just fine in VirtualBox and Wine on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

Feedback? Make it run on 10.7. That would be GREAT!

Oh, how I wish I could. Best thing we CAN do is to ask Aspyr or Ubisoft to release an update/patch for Ghost Recon, as the source code is not publicly available. If they'd offer it through the App Store it would sell like hotcakes - there's still such a strong Ghost Recon community out there.

Meanwhile, for OS X 10.7 Lion I suggest using a Wineskin Winery wrapper (see http://wineskin.doh123.com/ ) with the PC version of Ghost Recon. Very easy to set up - just create a new empty wrapper and install from the CDs. Works great.

For those interested I have created a Wineskin wrapper to run the PC version of Ghost Recon on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later.

After a (slightly longer than planned) hiatus I am happy to announce that I finished the next update (v1.0.0b5) for Heroes Unleashed. It's a major one - with tons of balancing and fine tuning, and again there are new maps, weapons, and game types.

Additionally, I have created another add-on mod, plus an info sheet with a comprehensive listing of all weapons in Heroes Unleashed and their key specs (as usual, those bonus items are "hidden away" in the X-TRAS folder).

Hope you'll enjoy the next version of Heroes Unleashed!

Cheers,
ApexMods

First of all, many thanks for the very nice feedback! It is very much appreciated and a great encouragement to continue development of the Heroes Unleashed mod. The new version 1.0.0b4 is available as of today. It contains a number of bug fixes and fine-tuning of many features, plus there are new maps, weapons, and a couple of game types for you to enjoy.

The main download link is for the full install, and there's a small link at the top of the page for the updater, which comes as an installer application that automatically patches your old installation of Heroes Unleashed v1.0.0b3 to the new version 1.0.0b4.

Have fun with a new version of Heroes Unleashed!

Yes, I agree with all the previous posts. This is a MUST for anyone who plays Ghost Recon. The intensity has been raised thanks to this mod as well as the amount of gameplay.

Ghost Recon has always been one of my closet favorites among games...old school game you don't want to admit you still play! But I love how it works and looks. AI is a bit dumb at times but the overall game is splendid, for my tastes at least.

Do yourself a favor and load this mod. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot image how to play GR without this mod anymore. Massive amount of new weapons, sounds, maps and last but not least a lot of textures have been tremendously prettified. Thanks and hats off !!
