Mac OS / Wine?
#1
Hi, 
Is anyone able to setup a Wine launcher for a Mac OS X user? I would prefer not to dual boot or anything of that nature. I am really hoping to emulator it with Wine. 

I have tried myself and was unsuccessful, but I am unexperienced. 

Thanks!

I'm able to run MH under Ubuntu/Deepin/Debian through Wine, without any problems. What's yours?

I am running OS X EL Capitan 10.11.3 Macbook Pro Retina. I downloaded Wine 1.8.5 from WineHQ. I guess I am basically lost once I have Wine installed. I am supposed to compile a program to run. However I have no clue on how to setup the compile. Hopefully that gives you a sense on where I am. I know there are wine wrappers but I can't seem to get that to work either.

I've ran the korean client on Ubuntu via wine and it was perfectly playable. Once you have wine installed, it should be as simple as running the game executable with wine. If that doesn't work and you're missing some dependencies, use winetricks to install those.

Can you be a bit more specific bout what your problem is?

I actually didn't have Wine installed. I went back and tried to install it correctly but I am coming across an error when installing a Wine dependency: Libpng

It is downloading version 1.6.26 but when it tries to install it gives me an error. Thus not letting me finish the Wine install. Does that sound familiar ?

I am having absolutely zero luck installing wine tricks. Can you walk me thru how you were able to install wine tricks?

I've only ever used it on Linux, so it may not be applicable here. Obviously if you don't have all the wine dependencies installed, then it wont compile. You can try installing wine itself or some of its dependencies using homebrew: http://brew.sh/

Would you be willing to help me once I am passed installing homebrew? I ran the installation in my terminal listed on the front page. "Brew Update" returns everything is up to date. Brew Install Wine returns it is installing dependencies and gives me an error with installing the dependency Libpng.

I'm no mac user so I have no way to try these things out, but a quick google and it seems that following steps should fix the problem:

1. brew update
2. brew unlink libpng
3. brew install libpng
4. brew install wine

Thanks for the try, but I can't seem to get it to work.
