My MacBook is from mid 2009 and has High Sierra (version 10.13.3).


I think I have managed to install the game successfully as when I reached the end of the installation process it said that it has been finished and that the laptop needed to be restarted. However the game can't run at all and at best just offers a small black screen, at worst a fullscreen of mess with some sound from the beginning of the game.


The game is really old (it is from 1997) so I wouldn't be surprised if there were issues, however I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on why it won't work or could offer any help?

P.S. Maybe I should consider changing the operating system of my MacBook to Snow Leopard or one of the ones mentioned on the Wineskin site?

Have you tried setting the Windows version in the config utility to Windows XP?

Hi- no I haven't tried this yet; there is a Boot Camp Assistant utility on the laptop that enables me to install Windows 7 (potentially). I'll see how this goes and shortly return to this thread...

Boot camp is very different from wine though. You should try what I suggested first because wine doesn't need you to boot into another operating system.
