Anachronox features a science fiction story influenced by cyberpunk, film noir, and quirky humor. The story begins as down-and-out private investigator Sylvester "Sly Boots" Bucelli looks for work in the slums of Anachronox, an alien planet near the hub of the galaxy's space-lanes. He travels to other planets and, amassing an unlikely group of friends, unravels a mystery that threatens the existence of the universe. The story features a theme of working through troublesome events of one's past.

thanks for this
no problem - i like to keep good old games alive ;)
Thank you so much for this, this game is a lost classic IMO... seems lots of people are having trouble running this game on modern systems under Windows 7 but this port is flawless (Mid-2010 MBP, 10.7.3)

Thank you so so much!! Can't wait to get back into this game!
This works for my GOG-bought version of Anachronox, however there are strange framerate dips about 30% of the time. Any ideas how to solve this? On GOG it says to launch the game using the setup utility rather than the game exe itself but my limited tech knowledge means I can't adjust the wrapper to do this... thanks...
I'm having trouble getting this to work on a Macbook Air 2012 with the intel 4000 gfx. I've tried both 1.3.8 and the newest version of wineskin to no avail. I've followed the instructions to a "T", but the game refuses to launch. Does this game require a discrete gfx card?
I am having trouble getting this to run on my Macbook Pro (10/2011) after installing from the CDs. By selecting Autorun.exe as the startup program, I am able to get the launch window, but when I select 'play' nothing happens.
Any tips?
you should not override the launching exe i have prepared. i remember i had some parameters in there - please redownload the wrapper, copy your anachronox folder in there (so you should have "c_drive/Anachronox/"), then just run the new wrapper.

i start the game with a prepared custom exe and i run it with some parameters via wineskin. so don't touch the "windows exe" option in wineskin ;)

it does not require an dedicated gpu. there could be a problem with your installation. where did you install it to?
