MacBook Pro Running Mavericks: Reader Not Working

Post by Tokhuah » Mon May 19, 2014 3:36 am

Purchased Field of Glory Ancients and Medieval 2.0 Reader for the Mac.

-All I see is a grey screen.
-I click on Grey screen to see three icons at top: [?] [Resize] [Click to Display Content Flow]
-Click to Display Content Flow only shows the title page (picture) of each section. I am not able to access any of the text content within the chapters/sections.

Sorry to hear you are having issues with the e-reader.

Please try the following:

1. Download and install the new e-reader from the link below:
http://www.slitherine.com/files/fog/rea ... v2.0.4.dmg

2. Open the following folder:
/Users/yourname/Library/Field of Glory Reader
Delete all files and folders inside. This will delete the ebook and should force you to download the ebook again once you open the new ebook reader (2.04) and click on the "Field of Glory Ancient & Medieval Gaming System" icon.

Thank you for the assistance.

For the Good of the Order
Mac users running Mavericks will need to make their library visible in order to complete the above instructions provided by VPaulus. If you do not know how to accomplish this here is a proven method I found on the interwebs:

1. Open a new Finder window
2. Navigate to your Home directory by selecting the Go menu and clicking Home (⌘-Shift-H)
3. Select the View menu and click Show View Options or by using ⌘-J
4. Check the box next to Show Library Folder

For those who want to occasionally access their Library folder without making it visible, all you have to do is select the Finder, open the Go menu, hold ⌥ (Option), and click Library.


Easy peasy, and I am up and running! Now I Need to purchase Immortal Fire!
