Hi all, i am trying to make a wrapper for the entitled game. Having the original for my pc i decided that with the impending rerelease of the original X-com enemy unknown (can't wait!!!) I would see if i could get this windows only game (according to steam) working on my mac for... shall we say dinner time fun... don't tell my boss!

However having followed numerous tutorials and detailed help threads (thanks to everyone who made these) I still can't get it to work in wineskin.

I have tried copying the installed files from my pc direct to the wrapper and after ensuring the correct exe is selected i would have expected to be good to go however after a couple of seconds of black screen i get an error message:

"The program UFO_ET.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. Sorry for any inconvenience"

With an error report:
Spoiler

Could someone please suggest a way to get it running, after the failure of the copied folder i tried using the files supplied on the disk to 'install' the game through wineskin but after nearly 2 hours of it being 'busy' i came to the conclusion that it wasn't going to work. I did seach forums to see how long it should take first, i'm impatient but not stupid ;)

Thanks to anyone who can help,
Ziechael

ps. Still can't get my skyrim cider wrapper to work!!!!!!

For anyone interested in this game search for paulthetall's wrapper, works a treat.

Thanks for opening my eyes to other wrapper locations tuna, sucks to be a new guy but at least i'm willing to learn ;)
