I got wineskin winery yesterday. To test how this program runs PC games and such I chose a random game. I chose S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of Cherynobyle because it was featured. I managed to open the 7ZIP with my unarchiver app. I added the game to my applications and then my dock. When I clicked on the game to run it wineskin opens. I know you have install the game somehow but I really don't know. If you could please explain to me what you do after opening the game and getting wineskin to open that would be great. NOTE: A good description will help me get it the first or 2nd try. Also I have gotten skyrim (i cant save but it works) and fallout new vegas to work without wineskin after downloading from pirate bay but i dont want to do that for every game the downloading from this website is so fast!


My Mac OS X Version:
Mac OS X 10.6.8

My Mac Model, GPU & CPU:
ATI hd 2400

Error Log(s):

no idea what you are talking about... if you downloaded some wrapper here.. then why did you get Wineskin Winery?  If you are using Winery... why are you unpacking any of the 7z files since you aren't supposed to?

You don't download games here.
You download a wrapper that allows you to run a game you already have

a wrapper is an empty shell that can run a game... you just download the wrapper, and follow its directions to get your copy of the game installed inside the wrapper... once you have your copy installed, the wrapper is a normal Mac app you double click and run like any other Mac app.  the whole point of the wrapper is that it is all you need... you only get tools like Winery to make a wrapper if your going to make your own.

If you read the pinned topics in tutorials-->Starting Guides and General info that should get the basics down and read the ports topic fully there should be no reason to ask questions like this. I think all new members should be redirected or forced to read the pinned topics in that section just to get the main idea of porting and wrappers down.
