  1. Here I want to make instructions for those who still don't know what is Wine. I live without MS Windows. How? All program I needed exist in Mac version or can be run through Wine. What is Wine? Wine Is Not Emulator. It is Wrapper. It means that all processor commands execute natively with native speed and all library calls redirected to similar library calls using host system drivers. The most questionable is DirectX calls. They are replaced by OpenGL calls and shaders run mostly natively. Real test shows that same game run on the same computer under Wine a 10% slower then on real Windows. And sometimes even faster with poor quality. Sometimes a game will not work with your Windows version (requiring Vista only for example). Wine can report any version you like. Wine can run Windows 98 games. Sometimes a game will work on stretched window in real Windows. In Wine it works with square pixels OK, go! 1. Download Wineskin Winery application. It is portal to this solution. It works in ElCapitan no matter what download said. 2. Start it. 3. Click + to choose an Engine. Download what proposed. 4. Click "Update Wrapper" 5. Quit the Winery for this moment. 6. Download WrapperUpdate5 and Sherry engines. Binary releases and tests 7. Unpack and copy WrapperUpdate to Wineskin folder cp -R ~/Downloads/WrapperUpdate5/* ~/Library/Application\ Support/Wineskin/Wrapper/Wineskin-2.6.2.app/Contents/Frameworks/ 8. Copy WineSherry to engines folder cp -R ~/Downloads/WS9WineSherry-1.9.7.tar.7z ~/Library/Application\ Support/Wineskin/Engines/ 9. Start Winery again. 10. Create New Blank Wrapper. 11. Show it in Finder and quit Winery. 12. Start the Wrapper. 13. Click "Install Software" and choose windows executable setup.exe of your favorite game. Enloy! 14. Next time you may Open Package Content of the Wrapper and see Wineskin application here. Launch it to see as 12. 15. Click Advanced and see more options. Configuration: Browse - to choose other executable EXE Flags - if the application need it Install Sofware - to install more applications into the same wrapper Test Run - to run extra applications Tools: Config Utility (winecfg) - to set some options needed for some game, somehow workarounds if a game will not works. Registry Editor - same as on Windows. To change some Windows and Applications settings Winetricks - special actions to help some applications work in Wine Change Engine Used - to install new WineSherry Kill Wineskin Processes - if the Applications stalls. Like Ctrl-Alt-Del on real Windows. You can skip black screen of hanged application by pressing ALT-TAB Options I will not recommend to set something else here So the Wineskin with Sherry has many abilities to tune for a game and many Windows games really working under Wine. DirectX9 almost all. DirectX10/11 the work in progress. Wine is developed very actively. More then 300 commits every two weeks. AT this stage I accepted all WineHQ commits and keep my 140 patches specific in Sherry. The instruction thread will be continued. Ask!
