#72495 When you're making Wineskin wrappers, how do you know which engines and w...

Information at the AppDB is usually outdated if it's not a very popular game, for example Alien Shooter is rated garbage but I got it working flawlessly. My advice is to either start with the newest Wine engine or the newest Crossover engine (the one with CX or CXG in the name). Then see what issues you have and compare to the information ath the AppDB, see what Winetricks were used and what settings were changed. If you still have issues, then work your way down the engine versions. Wine is still heavily in development, so often one thing gets fixed, while another one gets broken.

All engines with even number (i. e. only 1.2.x at the moment) are considered stable, while the odd numbered ones (1.1.x and 1.3.x) are alpha. For us this is not that important, since we can change our Wine version on the fly.

if everythign fails you will simply have to accept defeat. Some games cannot be run in Wine. Yet.

why would you restate my post?
Maybe because it's more specific and helpful?
