Macintosh Catalogue Files - Symbolic Link Fix

From Creatures Wikia

Jump to: navigation, search

The following guide is written by Skelly, it fixes the problem with agents injecting their catalogue files into the wrong directory.
1. Open the terminal in HD:Applications:Utilities:Terminal.app
2. Copy and past the following code into the terminal:
For docking station:
rm -d -r ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Docking\ Station/data/Catalogue && ln -s /Applications/DockingStation.app/Contents/MacOS/data/Catalogue ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Docking\ Station/data/Catalogue
For Creatures 3:
rm -d -r ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Creatures\ 3/data/Catalogue && ln -s /Applications/Creatures3.app/Contents/MacOS/data/Catalogue ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Creatures\ 3/data/Catalogue
3. Press Enter (This will remove the existing folder, then replace it with the symbolic link)

Notes:

  • Enter the codes exactly as they are, or you could screw something up
  • Do not delete the new Catalogue folder, it will delete the original one in your Docking Station App, instead, use this in the terminal:

For docking station:
unlink ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Docking\ Station/data/Catalogue
For Creatures 3:
Unlink ~/Library/Preferences/Creature\ Labs/Creatures\ 3/data/Catalogue

  • If you have multiple users on your Macintosh that use creatures, then you will need to do the same thing for their account.
  • I doubt this works if your volume is UFS formated, you should be using HFS+ anyway.
