 trouble with exult.cfg on mac os X.
Author: Sansad (---.1263-1-64736c20.cust.bredbandsbolaget.s)

This is a little strange since I got Exult to work about a year ago and remember that it was quite easy. For some stupid reason I deleted Exult and U7 with it and now I can't get the path to my game data right...

By default the exult.cfg gamedat_path is /Users/xxxxx/.exult/blackgate/gamedat

My game files are in /Games/Exult/blackgate/STATIC. I don't have a /gamedat folder in my u7 map, I do however have the /STATIC folder that looks suspiciously like a data folder...

When I set the gamedat_path to /Games/Exult/blackgate or /Games/Exult/blackgate/STATIC and then fire up Exult I get a "Could not find the data files for..." message.

Any thoughts?

Even though it may look very much like it was written for Windows the instructions in http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#dir_config are also for other operating systems.
It *should* be enough to point to your game directory
<game>
<blackgate>
<title>
blackgate
</title>
<path>
/Games/Exult/blackgate
</path>

for further path settings see the above link.
<gamedat_path> should point to your gamedat path (if you want it under the user, which I think is the best location, then point to /Users/xxxxx/.exult/blackgate/gamedat).
<static_path> should point to /Games/Exult/blackgate/static (if you really need to, of course mind the case).
<savegame_path> should also point to an existing directory in the user dirs (example /Users/xxxxx/.exult/blackgate).

Gah! I am a blind man sometimes...

<config>
<disk>
<game>
<blackgate>
<path>
. <-------- Missed the <path> and went directly to...
</path>
<title>
blackgate
</title>
<gamedat_path> <---------- ...here
/Games/Exult/blackgate
</gamedat_path>


Sorry for taking up your time. And thanks for the quick reply. :)

on Mac OS X Sierra (10.12.5) with eXult 1.5.0git just follow the documenttion rules that i quote below:
"When you run Exult it will automatically recognize that BG and SI are installed. You do not need to edit exult.cfg"
basically just create a directory blackgate :
mkdir /Library/Application\ Support/Exult/blackgate/
or use the finder to do it (you will need to have activated the display of Library directory in finder view options)

get your original version of Ultima VII Black Gate (i used the french version La Porte Noire and it works in french speech...) and copy the directory GAMEDAT and STATIC in blackgate directory, that's all ! (or almost perheaps you should remove the exult.cfg file as quoted "If you followed all the instructions and Exult still won't recognize the games, you can try deleting exult.cfg in ~/Library/Preferences and then start Exult.")

before starting exult you should have this:

ls /Library/Application\ Support/Exult/blackgate/
GAMEDAT STATIC

ls /Library/Application\ Support/Exult/blackgate/GAMEDAT/
