trying to install on my mac via wine using GOG version
« on: January 09, 2021, 09:57 PM »
I got all the way to the step of downloading the latest version from GOG

Quote
Using the GOG edition
In your web browser, log in with a GOG account that has purchased the game, then download the full latest installer via this link. After it is downloaded, use the following command to install it (example for version 3.8.1, change to yours if different):

wine ~/Downloads/setup_worms_armageddon_gog-3.8.1_(43454).exe

but when I type in that command i get a syntax error
Quote
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

my file name and everything matches up. I have it in my downloads folder but it just wont install. Any clues?

I think you may need to add \ before ( and ). Try this and let me know if it works:

Code: [Select]
wine ~/Downloads/setup_worms_armageddon_gog-3.8.1_\(43454\).exe
If it doesn't work, try double quotes:

Code: [Select]
wine "~/Downloads/setup_worms_armageddon_gog-3.8.1_(43454).exe"

Dec 30 2013 23:59:44 <StepS> windowed mode isn't the only thing you need about frontend
Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

You need to specify where you installed it, if you didn't change it during setup then I think by default it is "GOG Games" instead of "Games", so try that path.

Code: [Select]
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Worms\ Armageddon/wa.exe
Assuming you are using the default C: drive in wine and that the home directory is unchanged.
