Hi there totalportingnoob here.
I was trying to get good old max on his feet again and i saw a tutorial on how to get the game running with Wineskin and steam.
first I couldn't seem to download the x11 thingy since all it said was 'you need 10.7 to get this to work.
I downloaded and installed XQuartz.

Now, I downloaded the Max Payne wrappere from your site but i can't find a Steam-map in the C-drive map as the dude in the video suggested.
Is there anyone who could lead me to Bullet Time?
Pretty please, with sugar on top :)
Thnx in advance.

hi... the only wrapper for max payne in the Porting team database is this one:


It was released on October of 2012... many years before El Capitain and/or Sierra was released, so one time you download the wrapper you need to update it to make it workable with the newests mac OS...

So use this guide to update the wrapper;


That wrapper wasn't fitted as a steam client but it was released for the old CD version of the game...

So if you want to update the wrapper to be used also as a steam client for windows you need to update his wineskin's engine with a more recent one (at least a 2.13 version),  because newest steam client for windows is compatible only since this version and above...

I suggest you to download the wine-staging engine 2.14 or a more recent version from here:


and update the wrapper with that engine...

Then you need to install the steam client for windows inside the wrapper if you want to download the game thorough steam...

Here how you can make to install the steam client for windows inside the wrapper:

move your wrapper on your desktop or wherever you prefered to install the game
Right click on the wrapper and choose show package contents
Click on Advanced > Tools > Winetricks
Click on update Winetricks
Scroll down in the apps drop down list and choose Steam
Click on the Run button and launch the Steam process
After Steam has completed loading sign in and download the game
Launch the game using Steam (you need to change the origiinal path from the exe of the cd game to the exe of steam into the wrapper configuration)...


If you are an habitual Steam customer, I can suggest you to use an only one steam wrapper for all your Windows steam games you want to play on macOS:


Remember that all the wineskin's wrappers (at the moment I write this post) aren't yet able to run Windows games that requires only DirectX10/11 (or above) as minimum system requirements, so be sure your games support directx9c as minimum system requirements before buy them on Steam...

...As well that the WineHQ App Database should be searched for the games compatibility rating in Wine. If a game is rated as garbage and you have no Windows partition you may want to rethink spending the money on it.


Nice post you two...I'm going to edit the title a bit and stick this up towards the top.
