Wineskin

Wineskin is a user-friendly tool used to make ports of Microsoft Windows software to macOS.\ Unlike the original Wineskin Project by doh123 that worked on OS X 10.6 to macOS 10.12 (without tweaks), this project supports MacOSX10.13 to macOS11


How to install

homebrew

brew install --no-quarantine gcenx/wine/unofficial-wineskin

Manual installation - (not recommneded!)

Download Wineskin Winery v1.8.4.2\ *After downloading remove the flag quarantine before extraction, don't extract using _Keka___

xattr -drs com.apple.quarantine Wineskin.Winery.txz


DirectX support

WineD3D by default converts D3D to OpenGL, OpenGL 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;

dxvk_macos.verb
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 WineCX20.0.4 or greater.\ This will require macOS Big Sur 11.1 or greater and Rosetta2 needs to be installed.


macOS Catalina support

WS11WineCX19.0.4 & WS11WineCX64Bit19.0.4 include

wine32on64
meaning they function on macOS Catalina. 10.15.4 or greater.\ 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

i386_set_ldt
for
wine32on64
to function.\ This configuration is not supported, upgrade to macOS Catalina 10.15.4 or greater.


GateKeeper

Windows applications are not code-signed in a way that GateKeeper understands.\ Either remove the quarantine flag using

xattr -drs com.apple.quarantine {exe here}
\ or disable GateKeeper entirely by running the following
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.


FAQ

My Antivirus says it's a VIRUS!!!

You need to contact your AntiVirus/AntiMalware vender to connect these false positives.\ This started once wine moved to using Mingw-gcc to compile PE binaries.

See the following examples - CrossOver 19 and anti virus programs - Windows Defender detects Occamy.c trojan in steam proton 5.0 folder
