Custom Song Toolkit won't open (Mac)


Recommended Posts

First it said I needed a recent version of mono which I had.  So I uninstalled that version and downloaded version 2.8.  Now instead of getting that message about mono I get nothing.  The icon bounces when I click it but nothing happens.  It won't open.  What do I do?

the install of mono on my macbook air running the gold master (final code) of macos sierra does not launch the toolkit at all.

my mac pro with el capitan & the latest mono does launch the toolkit but it does crash relatively frequently...

 

i'm not a dev but i have been in IT for nearly 20 years so i can troubleshoot most any issue related to mac/linux/windows but mono stuff really throws me off

@@uberdown, can you run it through terminal and collect output log ? may be useful to trace bad things there, also, is it works well with cli tools (like unpacker)?

 

this is the complete output after launching the toolkit via terminal & pointing directly to the program within the .app container:

 

<machinename>:~ <user.directory>$ Downloads/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit.app/Contents/MacOS/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit

Current Mono version: v4.2.0

The latest Mono release is: 4.6 Stable (4.6.0.245)

 

you've got 4.2 there

 

anyway it's missing  libgdiplus so you may help it find it, someone just copy one to toolkits folder (/resources) someone may use links or bash scripts, here http://www.mono-project.com/docs/advanced/pinvoke/dllnotfoundexception/

I'm hopping they've fixed those in 4.6 build

i had noticed the build number was off but i wasn't sure if that was coming from mono or a dependency.

since you pointed out that the 4.2.0 build WAS the mono version, i completely removed mono, reinstalled & adjusted the symlinks then tried to execute again via terminal & my macbook air with sierra is now running better than my mac pro with el capitan!

 

i'm also using the 2.7 customs toolkit which may be playing with mono better than previous builds

I still had this problem with the latest beta build 2.7.1.0 (rev 9ec31e2c) (to fix 100% complete issue) on Sierra. 

 

mono -V tells me I was on the latest version

I uninstalled mono and re-installed it (4.6.1)

 

Double clicking still get me the 'need version higher than 2.6' error.

 

running 'open -a /Applications/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit.app' from terminal works.

 

My current work-around is to create a bash script (/Applications/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit.command) that has the following:

 

#!/bin/bash

/usr/bin/open -a /Applications/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit.app 2>&1 /dev/null

 

I then did a:

sudo chmo uog+x /Applications/RocksmithCustomSongToolkit.app

 

The redirecting to /dev/null does not seem to work. But double clicking now works and I can pin it. It opens a terminal in the background - but I can live with that. 

 

So there is something in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH or some such that works when I do something interactively that double clicking is not doing. 

 

Now to work out how to bulk update the CDLC from the command line.

@@lamby, I'll dis into mono version detection algo so it say less if unshure which mono is, Wepeel comented out that check and just run the toolkit, you can do the same while I'm playing with script, look at RocksmithCustomSongToolkit in one of the subfolder (not a resources one)

This probably isn't fixed, because I get the same error in Sierra?

However your solution works. I get the Toolkit open via Terminal. So thank you for help.  :)
