#104971 Crossover 15.0.1 Custom

Posted dankoB on 16 December 2015 - 09:09 PM

CX15.0.1 engines are here: http://portingteam.c...om/#entry105139

Original Post

When CX15 was released I tried to compile the engine but ran into a few errors. The first was a discrepancy in resource.h of programs/winedbg. After replacing this file with that of vanilla Wine1.8rc2, the second error occured with dlls/gdi32.

resource.h error
programs/winedbg/resource.h:23: error: distversion.h: No such file or directory
programs/winedbg/crashdlg.c:31: note: resource.h was first included here
make: *** [programs/winedbg/depend] Error 1

gdi32 error
freetype.c: In function ‘LoadReplaceList’:
freetype.c:2408: error: variable-sized object may not be initialized
freetype.c:2408: warning: excess elements in array initializer
freetype.c:2408: warning: (near initialization for ‘cn_font_seen’)
make[1]: *** [freetype.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....


make: *** [dlls/gdi32] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

After replacing the dlls/gdi32 folder with that of vanilla Wine1.8rc2 the build completed successfully.

maybe this information will help


Although I'm not sure if Wine will recognize the native driver...you will likely have to use a gamepad configuration app.


#104026 Wineskin Winery Update?

Posted dankoB on 12 July 2015 - 07:10 PM

Hi doh, It's been awhile since there has been an update to Winery. Although we have had a lot of forum support from new members in updating the frameworks for Wineskin, I was wondering when we might see an official update from your side.

No luck on 10.6 - it seems it should work - no giant x through it. But it bounce once in the dock and closes.

Strange. I will try to compile it again with the latest version.

#102575 Steamliner: Wrapper for playing Windows Steam games on Mac OS X

Posted blueman56 on 05 October 2014 - 04:25 PM

Love this idea, Just downloaded the warpper and will test the games I have, they are: Sonic CD, Sonic Adventre DX, Sonic 4 Episode 1 and 2, and Sonic Generations. I am a bit of a Sega nut!

I will post back my results, I don't think Sonic Generations will work, but fairly hopeful for the others...

#102943 WS9WineCX14.0.3 double buffer ... please help!!!

Posted dankoB on 04 January 2015 - 05:28 PM

Naw, unfortunately it didn't help. I'm trying to port the FakeFactory HL2 Cinematic Mod 2013 and there seems to be a memory leak but I have a patched CX13 engine that runs it fine although there is an issue with a thin diagonal line that forms on the screen. It's really quite annoying and the performance is less desirable than what I'd prefer. If I knew of a cider wrapper with vcrun2010 built in I try to port it using that.

edit...I was having issues with the CX engine and successfully built a patched 1.7.33...the CX build failed while building programs/winedbg for some reason (I'm guessing something was changed in the CX source) I decided to to switch out the CX14.0.3 wine/programs/winedbg folder for that of 1.7.33 and the build finished successfully....about to give it a go....hope the performance is better!

#102128 Update on Wineskin / Cider in Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Posted doh123 on 05 July 2014 - 03:51 AM

Right now I know of no benefit of dropping 10.6 support.  There were issues with 10.5 which really helped in dropping support... same reason XQuartz also dropped 10.5 and is 10.6+

I have no plans of dropping 10.6 until some major reason comes up, or I have no choice.

#102093 Custom 1.7.20 for Fallout 3

Posted dankoB on 29 June 2014 - 03:01 AM

Awhile back I started working on Fallout 3 again in hopes that I could get a fresh wrapper working instead of updating a wrapper that I have been continually updating over the last few years. I decided to try WS9 vanilla Wine 1.7.20 and and the game started up just great but it had the dreadful flicker bug going on....so I tracked down the correct patch (originally written for Wine 1.7.10) and applied it to 1.7.20 source...all hunks passed and a successful engine was built.

The engine can be found here... http://cl.ly/2N3R0b3...oflicker.tar.7z

Do Not Extract this package. Place the downloaded file in Your User Name/Library/Application Support/Wineskin Winery/Engines

Now create a fresh wrapper using Wineskin Winery after you have selected the custom Wine no flicker engine.

After the wrapper has been created open the package contents (right click...show package contents) and navigate to Contents/Resources/drive_c/windows/system32 and download and place the following files in the folder.

msasn1.dll - http://www.dllbank.c.../msasn1.dll.zip, click ok when it asks you if you want to replace the current file.

xliveless: xlive.dll & xlive_d.dll - http://www.gtavision...te=do&DLID=2914

As a precaution I added these files to Fallout 3 main executable directory as well. It may work if they are only placed in the system32 folder but I also placed it in the same directory as fallout3.exe before I tested the wrapper out.

Now drag and drop this file (Fallout 3 icon by Porting Member Geichin) to your desktop and place it in the resources. Click ok when it asks you if you want to replace the current file. http://cl.ly/2A3r0x1...d/fallout3.icns

The wrapper is nearly ready to use....all that needs to be done now is to place the installed Fallout 3 game files into the wrapper in the program files folder. Inside the Package contents you will see the Wineskin app. Double click to launch Wineskin. Click on Advance and then browse button. Navigte to the fallout3.exe (you can also use falloutlauncher.exe) Once it is set close out Wineskin and double click the wrapper to launch the game.

This method worked perfectly and started up without any issues I haven't had the time to create a new folder with a symlinked app that will launch the mod manager and thought this would give some users a decent wrapper to use until I get Fallout 3 database entry updated.

#4160 Words that changed my life forever..(Dedicated to MaxWeber)

Words that changed my life forever..
      written by A. Bergstein

My world literally came to a stop when I received word of this tragedy. The world has lost a beautiful person who had a deep passion for life. Although my heart has been broken, I take comfort in knowing and believing that although I can no longer see my best friend, he will always be with me. Too often do we take people for granted, thinking that they’ll always be with us. We overlook opportunities to connect with others on a deeper level and we put things off for the next time. Max's death has awakened me to the reality that there may not be a next time and that we should live everyday as it were our last.

Who was Max? Well when you take a look at his posts and all his kind words, you see a great guy, but people on the internet don't even know the half of his greatness. To me Max is my hero, and a hero to many others, a hero of our nation. A man who touched everyone's lives, and forever changed it. A man who's life was so full of color, colors that we often could not see, the color of life. A great man amongst our people, and one who walked with truth and dignity in his heart. A man we will all miss greatly. There are probably some people out there who want to know what makes him my hero, what is so great about a guy who says nice things in his posts. Well I knew him for many years and I would say we had the most intense friendship ever. The way we met is a bit unusual and I'm sure to many of you it may sound like a movie or something, but I encourage you to read on, because this is nothing but the truth, the truth about a wonderful man who will be cherished and missed forever, not just by me but also by thousand's of others.

Now, let me take you to the beginning. Where and when our wonderful friendship began. It was one of those days, I was sitting in school and we were going through the second world war. Not one of my favorite subjects, because of all the horrible things the Nazis have done to my family. My family, including aunts, uncles, cousins, distant relatives and close family friends were deported to Auschwitz in 1943 and were murdered in late 1943. The only one who survived this concentration camp of hell was my beloved mother. Anyhow, It was almost the end of our history lesson, when the principal of our school walked in and asked me out, he said my mother wants talk to me. So I got up and went to see what my mother wants. I was kind of worried, because the day before I got in a fight with a guy from my neighborhood, while we were fighting I broke a car mirror with my elbow, and feared now I'm going to get it.

My mother was standing with her back to me, she was crying and shacking all over. I hugged her and asked her what's wrong. She replied:" He asked me for forgiveness.", I asked her:" Who asked you for forgiveness? For what? What did he do?" My mom said:" He didn't do anything at all, it was his grandfather..." Now, I started crying too, because I realized what this is all about. My mom knew his grandfather to well, Max's grandfather joined the Nazi Party in October of 1920, as its 82nd member. In November 1923, he participated in the Munich Putsch, Hitler's failed attempt to take power in Bavaria (when the Nazi Party later came to power, they awarded the Blood Order to each participant in the Munich Putsch, it becomes one of the Nazi Party's top awards). He was stationed in Auschwitz and was the most feared warden of the concentration camp, people called him the black death. In late 1945 the allies arrested him and convicted him of crimes against humanity, he was then executed in mid 1946.

I was speechless, all sorts of things were going through my mind. I didn't know how to feel about him, I felt, anger, hate, pity but as well admiration and courage. And back then, I would have never thought that I would be best friends with a German. My mother told me that she feels his apology was heart felt and sincere. He didn't just say, I'm sorry. No, he begged her on his knees embracing her legs, crying and asking  for forgiveness for what his family has done to ours. I was confused to be honest with you, because Max traveled all the way from Germany to Israel to ask for forgiveness. That's quite a bit and honestly speaking not everyone would have done such a thing. Usually humans do not like to admit mistakes, they tend to forget about them, especially when it's about the holocaust. My mom also said that this young man is holding a speech later on in the University and he invited us too. Well, I hesitate at first, but then I told my mother we should go.

I will never forget the day I met him, from the moment on he walked towards me and my mother and I looked deep into his eyes who were filled with tears, I knew I cannot be angry with him, especially after what he said to us. With a very sad voice he said:" I'm glad you came, you know all the beautiful and honest things in life are not seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart. So I offer you to look deep inside of my heart and if you see anything else but beauty and honesty, I promise I will end my life before I fail to live up to everything my heart stands for. If there's no beauty, honesty and love left in it, then I am not worthy to receive your forgiveness nor have I the right to live. I was looking at the grandson of a man who murdered my family but at the same time I was amazed what wonderful human being he is. Nothing like his grandfather, after his speech, all attendees, guests, even professors were standing and applauding with tears in their eyes. A young teenager, with words of great wisdom but also emotion, spoken out of the depth of his soul, this has not only made a great impression with me but with the whole University. He was asked to speak in front of all students and received the high honor of righteousness by the University principal. On this day he taught me a valuable lesson, he said:" Do not look at me as if I am a German because I am not. I may have been born in Germany, I may speak the german language. My family has committed the most terrible crimes in human history, but this is not me. You know, when I look at people I see my brothers and sisters, because logically speaking aren't we all related to each other? I mean didn't our ancestors walk together barefoot across the world? When our ancestors conquered the world, tamed wild animals, created settlements, they didn't make any difference between black or white , jewish or christian. It never matter to them whether  you are small or tall, strong or weak, skinny or chubby, because at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that we all are related to each other. We all belong to the same species, we all belong to the human race. Everything else like religions, country names, languages and currencies were created by the children of our ancestors. And the course it took from there, was certainly not what they wanted for us. I live in peace, I love you as I love my own brother, I love your mother as I love my own mother. Who knows, our ancestors may have walked together, and if not, let us walk together now". The lesson I was taught by him, still lives on in me, and will live on in me for the rest of my life.

I want Max to know that I have nothing to forgive him for, as he has never done me wrong. But because I love him so much and for the angelic like person he was, I and my mother forgive his grandfather for what he has done to us.

That's who Max was, he was one of the greatest human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing in my life. Even though god only granted him with 22 years, he has done more for me or anyone else I know, than any other person who has lived twice or even triple as much as he did. Until his very last day on earth, he fought racism, he fought for human rights, equal treatment for every creature on this planet. And in his will, me and a few friends are opening a foundation in his honor. We will continue his fight, till our time has come, until we will be reunited with our dear and beloved friend Max again. May he be an inspiration to all of you, may you follow his footsteps and consider yourself blessed (religious or not) that you had the chance to get to know him.

Max was buried in Israel, as this was his last wish. Hundred's of people attended the funeral.

Thank you god for a friend like Max.
