A working version of Wineskin using the development code from Wineskin with some tweaks, the Original Wineskin Code was updated by VitorMM and some additional features and fixes by myself Unoffical_Wineskin.
Unlike the Official Wineskin Project by doh123 that worked on OS X 10.6 to macOS 10.12 (without tweaks), this project supports MacOSX10.9 to macOS11

This repacking is done on your system.

DirectX support and wine

Wine converts D3D to OpenGL and the version on macOS hasn't been updated in years, at present only DirectX9 and earlier function.\ DXVK Requirements are not entirely known at this time, however as CodeWeavers locks support to macOS High Sierra this would be a good start.\ To make use of DXVK use a 64Bit WS10 or greater engine, open winetricks and run the following custom command;

This will install DXVK for DirectX10 and DirectX11 support for 64Bit games.\ 32Bit DirectX10 and later is not supported on macOS\ VKD3D is no supported!

Apple Silicon support (Rosetta2);

The only Engine(s) that fully function to on these devices is WineCX20.0.2 or greater.\ This will require macOS Big Sur 11.1 or greater and Rosetta2 needs to be installed.\ However older games that use are fullscreen at lower screen resolutions will fail as the\ Apple GPU doesn't seem to support these, using things like

to workaround this.

macOS Catalina support;

WS11WineCX19.0.1-2 & WS11WineCX64Bit19.0.1-2 include

meaning they function on macOS Catalina but as they have not been code-signed & notarized additional steps are required.
All future WS11 Engines automatically mean Catalina is supported.

macOS Catalina (10.15.3 and below);

SIP needs to be disabled to make changes to

to function.\ I don't recommend this configuration so won't provide instructions instead upgrade to macOS Catalina10.15.4 or greater.


Windows applications are not code-signed in a way that GateKeeper understand\ you can either remove the quarantine flag using

xattr -drs {exe here}
\ or disabled GateKeeper entirely by running
sudo spctl --master-disable
\ Disabling GateKeeper is not recommended

Hackintosh Support?

AMD based systems are not supported due to being unable to run 32Bit code on macOS.
Intel based systems should work without issue.


My Antivirus says it's a VIRUS!!!

You need to contact your AntiVirus/AntiMalware vender to connect these false positives.\ This started to happen once wine started to use Mingw for compiling PE binaries\ simply put wine provides exe/dll files that seem to be Windows files but are not,\ so these are automatically flagged by some venders instead of verifying if they're a threat\ See the following examples; - CrossOver 19 and anti virus programs - Windows Defender detects Occamy.c trojan in steam proton 5.0 folder
