I updated Wineskin Winery and my wrappers to 2.6.1 and was following doh123's advice to reinstall the engines in my existing wrappers, but I don't have some of the custom engines installed in Winery. I know how to install custom engines but I can't seem to find the tar.7z file anywhere. This might be a stupid question, but is the engine file still included in the wrapper? And if so, can I extract it and use it to reinstall on the same wrapper or even on another wrapper? If not, where is the custom engine file located? Also, does anyone know if there is one place where custom Wine engines can be downloaded? As of now I only download from Winery and individual links people post to the forums.

Thanks for your help.

All of doh123's engines can be found here: https://www.mediafir.../8p4vcab6414gv/

The custom engine you would download along with certain wrappers is located at Contents/Frameworks as wswine.bundle. If you want to add it to your Engines list in the Library/Application Support/Wineskin/Engines location then you would first have to compress it to a .tar file and then to a .tar.7z file and simply place it in the folder for Winery to find.
