I have been having issues with my new MBP Retina. All my copied over games are dead, even with updating engines/wrapper/replacing drive_c alias... These games ran on same OS on 2013 iMac (Iris Pro graphics).

I am using gfxCardStatus to lock NVIDIA graphic on, and selecting Low Resolution/32Bit mode in info for the wrapper.

Am I going to have to recreate ALL my WineSkin games?




My Mac OS X Version:
Mac OS X 10.10.5

My Mac Model, GPU & CPU:
MacBookPro 15" mid-2012 Retina, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Intel HD 4000/GeForce650m

Error Log(s):
no errors, just wanting some guidance ;-)

Thanks NRG, but I am only using 10.10.5, and all these wrappers work on 10.10.5 on my iMac and Hackintosh running 10.10.5 ?!?!

What Wine version are you using?

It's could likely be due to the game's settings. If you locate each of the games configuration files (usually in the same place as the save files) and delete them so the game can configure itself to the new hardware specs it might solve the problem.

I have just managed to run a simple app (Irfan View), so may need to manually recreate wrappers... not too bad, but a lot of configuration and copying files... worth it in the end. :-)
