I am trying to get this dedicated server app to work for the mini demo of Halo on my Mac. Being an El Capitan user, I got this error message.

So I updated the wineskin and it would finally open a blank console window. Shortly after it would say "Cannot allocate required memory. Some application has loaded where Halo wants to be located." I started to look around this forum for similar issues regarding Halo and I found a forum that helped. http://portingteam.c...olved-problems/

I'm not sure if the 1.1.23 binary works with 1.4 RC5 - I've only used it with Wine 1.2 and it worked there.

the file you wanna replace is located in WineskinWrapper.app/Contents/Frameworks/wswine.bundle/bin/wine

I changed the wineskin engine to 1.1.10 and BAMM!! The server app loaded with a beautifully colored console with the server loading. Then I got another
error message.

I don't know what to do now. Can anyone help? Thank you.

I've downloaded the wrapper as well and by the looks of it the Wineskin version's too old for El Capitan (I'm using Sierra, but they're require more or less the same thing). The Wineskin version (with the one I have) is 2.5.10 and El Capitan requires 2.6.1 or 2.6.2. To update it go into Wineskin > Advanced > Tools > Update Wrapper, which should update it to 2.6.2 or whatever you have installed with Wineskin Winery.

Not sure about the Wine engine as I've had absolutely no luck with getting it to launch past the splash screen and to add to me confusion my friend runs it on Linux with the standard Wine binaries perfectly.

Wine 1.1.23 is positively ancient. You may want to try with a more modern engine (1.8 or CX15.3.1), just in case.

Unfortunately, Halo for the PC does not work with a more modern engine and suffers from the: "Cannot allocate required memory. Some other application has loaded where Halo needs to be located."  It has always suffered from this error. This has me completely scratching my head as to why wine hq has it rated as platinum....  The error never went away.  They must be high. As such the best engine that works with it is the WS8WineCXG7.2.0

Note: Engines that old do not have the mac driver and require the X11 one.
