In Topic: 32bit and OpenGL going away next year on MacOS

Then again, Mac OpenGL support is quite bad, so maybe good riddance (see https://www.phoronix...ac-vulkan&num=3).

For some odd reason, I get the wrapper app running twice during the creation process with CX14. I guess one is the original version ~/application support/wineskin/wrapper and the other is the new one, but I cannot be sure. One of those launches X11.

If I kill the other one, the Winery reports having finished, but the wrapper process that launched X11 and wine server and a couple of wine process remains and seems hung.

Sorry, I used 2.6.5, not 2.6.4. I just checked. I used what was in my memory and it was wrong. Apologies.

But you are right, X11 should be used on setup. So I wonder why it didn't work for CX 14.1.11...

P.S. Sorry about he confusion. I am a scientist. I really should know better

OK, I tried that. When I used 2.6.2 and CX 14.1.11, I got it to install and I could pull out the files I needed.

Interestingly, I couldn't get CX 14.1.11 to install into a new wrapper in 2.6.5. However, CX 15.3 worked fine as noted before.

So there seems to be some shifts in 2.6.5 that affect compatibility with earlier wrappers. I suspect if could be that CX 14 didn't have the Mac driver working well enough, so defaulting to it will not work.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't actually trying to play MoM in DOSBox via Wine, just wanted to get the DOS files out of the installer (using Keka didn't work). These used to be easier to get when MoM was still abandonware ;). I wish GOG would provide an option to get MS-DOS files 'as is'.

I will try with the official wrapper, but I can't find the 2.6.2 version right now. The folder referenced here only has 2.6.0: http://wineskin.urge...page=Downloads. Will search more when I have time later.
