With MOI version 3, I had no problem running it on a 2009 macbook pro until upgrading to El Capitan. Now it will not open. C4D and Rhino work, but MOI locks up. Be cautious about the upgrade.

Hi Isleofgough - one thing you can try is the instructions written here:
http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=6967.4

Please see if that gets you running ok or not.

I've the same problem.

When starting Moi3D this message is displayed: An error occurred while starting the X11 server: "Failed to activate core devices."

I'm using OS X el Capitan on a MacBook 12.

Just Upgraded to El Capitan and I have the same error message as detailed above. Followed the instructions link as detailed but can't see the wineskin.app anywhere in the package contents?

Bit lost now and unable to work which is a big problem.

Hi Alex,

> Followed the instructions link as detailed but can't see the wineskin.app
> anywhere in the package contents?

Can you please post a screenshot of what you are seeing when you right-click and choose "Show package contents" ?

There should be 4 things, the last one of which is Wineskin.app .

Another thing you can try is to hold down the Alt key on the keyboard and keep it held down while you double click the app. Keep Alt held down until the wineskin dialog pops up, that's a shortcut way to run the internal Wineskin.app

It will probably be a while until MoI is compatible with El Capitan directly "out of the box" - unfortunately Apple tends to make big changes between releases, if you need a stable environment for work it's probably not a good idea to upgrade your operating system right away.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the quick response.

By chance, our IT guy passed through the office and found it straight away and installed it - and hey presto! it works!

Im up and running (and working) again - Will be more cautious before upgrading in the future.

Thanks again for your help. I hope El Capitan doesn't cause too many issues for you.

Keep up the good work

A

That's great news Alex, I'm glad you are up and running again!

I am working on a major rewrite for MoI version 4 so that the MoI Mac version will be a native compiled version and won't use the Wineskin/XQuartz mechanism anymore, which should help make it less sensitive to operating system changes than the current version.

But there is a lot of work involved in making that happen so it will still be quite a while before it is ready.

Hi Finema - over here your script seems to be working ok, but only when the mouse is actually over top of the maximized viewport.

That's because the script is calling moi.ui.getViewportUnderMouse() , which will only return the viewport that is directly under the mouse cursor. You probably want to switch that to instead use moi.ui.getActiveViewport(), which will return the last clicked viewport or the maximized viewport if the mouse cursor does not happen to be over a viewport right then. So try this instead:

script:if ( moi.ui.mainWindow.viewpanel.mode != 'split' ) { moi.ui.mainWindow.viewpanel.mode = 'split' } else { var viewport = moi.ui.getActiveViewport(); if ( viewport ) { viewport.viewPanel.mode = viewport.name } }

Hi Finema - well that script that you post above will not do anything if the mouse is not directly over a viewport, is that what you are seeing?

What happens if you replace it with the version I posted above, does that work any better?

If not can you maybe describe the problem in some more detail?

Hi Finema, what exactly is the problem of the panel display, can you show it so I can have some better idea of what's going wrong?

Do you see the same display problem if you just click on the view tab buttons at the bottom of the window? The ones for Split / 3D / Top / Front / Right, I mean.

Hi Michael,

I've followed the instructions and I not able to find the package Wineskin.app. I've checked folder by folder and I haven't found the file.
I have installed: XQuartz-2.7.7.dmg

Could you tell me where I can locate this file?

Thanks,
Javier

Go to Applications in Finder, then right click on MoI and then select "Show Package Contents".

If you have not installed MoI to Applications, then you will need to find the "MoI v3.app" and follow the above instructions

OK! It's working now!

I was looking for the package inside XQuartz and not inside Moi3D...

Thanks for you help.
