In the PC and linux version of the client uses a file called "string_client.pack which is a binary of a whole heap of object sitems & ID's and mission texts and such.
This file can become corrupt for whatever reason and in a lot of support issues a deletion of this file is a standard fix, as the game rebuilds it on the next login.
So question:
1. Does this file exist in the Mac version or does the client look for the raw data in the bnp files? this may explain lag issues and lockups.
2. If it does exist .. where is it? and if its in a hidden directory could someone please explain/document a proceedure to unhide it and delete it.

This could help to resolve a building list of mysterious mission and quest issues we are receiveing from Mac players.

Thanks in advance
