Ports

Post by Mgalekgolo » Sat Oct 08, 2011 10:02 pm

I think this should go here... But anyway first post ;). I've been bored lately, and took up wine porting. I use wineskin winery and its simple and easy. The problem is all programs have bugs. Like diablo II and starcraft have graphics issues, and diablo II crashes. I used crossover for those, which works perfectly. I made a port of a game for an anime community I belong too, and that couldn't recognize the font. I replaced (renamed to .bak) the original ttf and replaced it with arial.ttf (renamed to the font in the font folder). That actually fixed the text showing, and it didn't show arial, it showed the font it was made with. it was some gothic font (umeplus-gothic). This program was written in ruby. Now to make this have a point ill make a quick tut on how to make a port.
Download wineskin winery
Image
Install engines and wrapper version.
Image
Click the engine you want and click create new blank wrapper. Name it. If you use a wine engine (not cxg) it may prompt you to install gecko. Install that and wait.
Image
Image
Now go to home folder/applications/wineskin
Image
Show package contents on "testrun"
Go to wineskin. Open the executable. You can install software from there.
Image
After you install the software you can choose what exe it opens with (Make sure to install your software INSIDE the executable port)
Image
And play it.

This seems like porting using some kind of transition software.

Not really programming.

...
Running an app that uses wine isn't programming. This is what Nil's point was, I believe; you're making use of software, not developing it, nor are you really commenting on its structure at all for that matter.. And yes it runs wine >.<

Works for me, though. I'd only suggest changing the topic title to "Porting with Wineskin" instead.

Knightmare is absolutely right. This ought to be moved away.

I suppose wine is an alternative to nagging developers to release their applications for the mac platform.
