YandereMac Launcher

READ THE FAQ IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM BEFORE COMMENTING

When a new version of the game comes out, it will probably be in the launcher within an hour. In addition, I will be posting blog posts for new manual builds still, and the game will be avaliable in the launcher before that.  As a result, I think that it is redundant to post every time I update the version of the game served by the launcher. I will also have this post pinned, so SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW MANUAL BUILDS. Note that I still recommend using the launcher as it will be avaliable quicker.

This launcher will allow you to get the latest version of the game quicker. It lets me push updates easily (and without having to even convert the game, which is done on the fly). Available immediately at http://figgyc.uk/YandereMac.zip (deleted to save space, get launcher 2 or use another mirror). Mirrors follow, but first, two lots of three very long notes that I want people to read so I can stop answering them in the comments:

  • The app will not work unless you update it first time.
  • If you have issues, redownload the launcher.
  • You can use Yandere Sim builds that are from before YandereDev’s hard drive crashed in the same process described in the FAQ for manually loading a version of the game, but with these extra instructions: Right click the .app and clicking “Show Package Contents” then going to Contents > Resources, then right clicking and then clicking “Show Package Contents” on the actual YandereMac.app (the real game), followed by clicking Contents > MacOS then renaming YandereSimulator to YandereSimulator.new then YandereSimulator.old to YandereSimulator (this is the way to revert to the older Unity version that YandereDev used before his hard drive crashed). If YandereDev used even older Unity versions at some point and you cannot load in a version of the game, let me know in the comments and I’ll hook you up! Please note that when a new update is released after this process, it will let you know and will not work unless you swap the files back or redownload the launcher. This will work with every build from at least September 15th onwards although it will probably work much further back as I havent tested that far back.

  4. I was wondering if you could ever get SuperYandere64 on Mac? I got KuudereSimulator so SuperYandere64 seems fun. Burning Love! seems enjoyable too, though I dont want to request too much just wondering if you are able to.

    1. BL is ported to Mac by the developer already, just check the downloads page. The main reason I haven’t done Yandere64 or the original Kuudere Sim is because I don’t know what Unity version they run (which is important to my Wineless build process as Unity games only run on the right version binaries which I have to make by hand with Unity for each version. I’ll have a look though and see what I can do if the versions are still avaliable.

      1. Redownload the build or, for the launcher, go into Terminal and type “rm .ym_version”, press Enter and then reload the launcher. Builds around that date can be a bit buggy. If it persists tell me.

            1. I have posted a launcher patch that lets you manually download the game by going to figgyc.uk/yan_latest.zip and downloading the file, then by typing “echo ‘force local’ > ~/.ym_version” (no quotes on outside but quotes on ‘force local’) into Terminal then launch the launcher. It will say that you can manually install from ~/Downloads/yan_latest.zip (where it downloads on most major browsers including Safari) so press OK and it should work. This is launcher side so you will need to redownload the launcher to allow the “force local” feature to work if you use a version of the launcher downloaded before the 27th March 2016 at 7:50 BST (clocks went forward from GMT early yesterday) approximately.

    Like

    1. Yes! Mods on Windows will generally need you to drop files in the “YandereSimWheneverData” folder and the equivalent can be found in the launcher by right clicking the launcher and pressing “Show Package Contents” then going to Contents > Resources then right clicking on the YandereMac.app (which is patched by the launcher on updates so you will need to reinstall mods each time) and pressing “Show Package Contents” then Contents > Data and paste any files that you would paste into the “YandereSimWheneverData” folder on Windows in there!

    1. This might be a bit of a help. I make the game by patching a .app of an extremely old build that I got from YandereDev a while back with new Data files from recent Windows builds. You can get to and modify these files (and as a result, mod the game like in Windows) by doing this: Right click YandereMac.app and click “Show Package Contents” Click Contents If you use the launcher, click resources then Right click YandereMac.app and click “Show Package Contents” and click Contents again Click Data Please note that when new versions of the game are released via the launcher it will wipe mods.
