	<strong>I’ve just discovered how to get these PC games running on a Mac</strong> without the need to run a Windows
	virtual machine and I wanted to share the process with you for the benefit of Googlers alike looking for simple
	solutions.

<p>
	These are the real deal—completely self-contained single ‘.app’ bundles, just double-click to play.
</p>


<h2 id="wineskin">Installing Wineskin (Required)</h2>
<p>
	Wineskin is an app that creates self-contained Windows application bundles on a Mac using
	<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_%28software%29" rel="external">Wine</a>. To understand how it is
	possible to run Windows/PC games on a Mac without Windows consider this: Your Mac has an Intel processor, and these
	games were written for Intel processors, so what’s the difference between a Mac and a PC? It’s the libraries
	(DLL files) that the game calls to to get things done (like DirectX).
</p><p>
	Wine is not an emulator (no, really, that’s what the name “Wine” stands for). It does not emulate Windows like
	a SNES emulator would emulate a console, instead Wine re-implements those specific parts of Windows that PC software
	needs on your Mac. (e.g. DirectX gets translated into OpenGL)
</p>


<h3 id="wineskin-download">Download Wineskin</h3>
<ul>
	<li>Download the Wineskin application from
	<a href="http://wineskin.doh123.com/Information.html" rel="external">wineskin.doh123.com/Information.html</a><br />
	Click the green download button, and then the “Wineskin Winery” link.</li>
</ul>
<p>
	The download comes in a zip, which you should open to unpack, giving you the Wineskin Winery app.
</p>
<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-1_downloads_thumb.png" alt="Downloads folder with Wineskin zip file, and the extracted Wineskin app" width="640" height="389" />


<h3 id="wineskin-setup">Install Wineskin</h3>
<ul>
	<li>Open Wineskin and you are presented with this interface:</li>
</ul>
<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-2_initial.png" alt="Screenshot of Wineskin Winery application" width="640" height="373" />
<h4 id="wineskin-engine">Install the Wine Engine</h4>
<p>
	An ‘engine’ is the code used to translate the Windows code into Mac code. There is more than one engine because
	Wine comes in different versions and flavours that affect it’s compatibility with different bits of Windows
	software. Wine comes in three main flavours:
</p>
<dl>
	<dt>Vanilla Wine (deafult)</dt>
	<dd>
		The default, which is designed for broad compatibility with most Windows software but trades off
		compatibility with some specific games to better suit more typical desktop applications, like Microsoft
		Office.
	</dd>
	<dt>CrossOver (WineCX)</dt>
	<dd>
		<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CrossOver" rel="external">CrossOver</a> is a commercial Linux / Mac
		program that takes Wine and adds a friendlier user interface as well as improving compatibility for
		specific popular applications like Office.
	</dd>
	<dt>CrossOver Games (WineCXG)</dt>
	<dd>
		CrossOver also make CrossOver Games which is the same as regular CrossOver except focuses more on
		compatibility with games.
	</dd>
</dl>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Click the “<code>+</code>” button to add a new engine.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-3_engines.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘Add Engine’ window" width="640" height="411" />
	</li>
</ul>
<p>
	For our games to work we need to use the CrossOver Games (WineCXG) engine. Don’t worry—even though CrossOver
	Games is a paid, commercial product, that only applies to their user interface, the engine is open-source and can be
	used for free elsewhere, such as here with Wineskin.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Click on the drop-down, scroll to the bottom and select the latest version of WineCXG.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-4_winecxg.png" alt="Screenshot of long list of Wine versions" width="640" height="855" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Then click the “Download and Install” button.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-5_engine_download.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘File Downloader’ window" width="640" height="228" />
	</li><li>
		<p>Just click “OK” here to begin the download.</p>
	</li>
</ul>
<p>
	Once downloaded, you’ll be returned to the main interface now showing the engine in place.
</p>
<h4 id="wineskin-wrapper">Install the Wrapper</h4>
<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-6_wrapper.png" alt="Screenshot of Wineskin Winery window" width="640" height="373" />
<p>
	The Wineskin Winery app you are running is a ‘factory’ for producing blank “.app” bundles into which you
	install your Windows games. The engine forms the core that does the translation from PC code to Mac code, but think
	of the “Wrapper” as a blank Windows virtual machine (even though it’s not), a clean-slate install of Windows
	into which your game will be installed and then will become the simple icon you just double-click to play.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Click the “Update” button to download the latest Wineskin wrapper that will act as the blank
			template for each separate Windows game you want to install.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin-7_wrapper_download.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘File Downloader’ window downloading the wrapper" width="640" height="228" />
	</li>
</ul>
<p>
	(As before, just click “OK” to begin the download.)
</p><p>
	Wineskin Winery is now installed and ready to go. Open the Wineskin Winery app each time you want to install a new
	Windows game. Instructions are provided for <a href="#maxpayne">Max Payne</a>, <a href="#maxpayne2">Max Payne
	2</a> and <a href="#tron20">Tron 2.0</a>, but the first parts of these instructions will apply to any Windows
	game.
</p>

<hr />


<h2 id="wineskin-using">Using Wineskin</h2>
<h3 id="wineskin-new">How to Create a New, Blank Wrapper</h3>
<p>
	This is a general overview of how to create a new Winekin app bundle in to which you will install your Windows game.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Open Wineskin Winery.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin_winery.png" alt="Screenshot of Wineskin Winery window" width="640" height="373" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click the “Create New Blank Wrapper” button.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-1_wrapper.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘Create a Wrapper’ window" width="640" height="299" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Enter the name of the game and click “OK”.
		</p><p>
			Wineskin Winery will now prepare a blank wrapper to host the game, this may take several minutes.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin_busy.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘Busy’ window that reads ‘Wineskin Winery is currently busy, please wait…" width="640" height="186" />
		<p>
			During this, this window will appear. This is the Wine engine being installed into the wrapper.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-2_wine.png" alt="Screenshot of small window that reads ‘The Wine configuration in /tmp/Max Payne.app/Contents/Resources/ is being updated, please wait…" width="640" height="117" />
		<p>
			Once complete this message will appear.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-3_created.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘Wrapper Creation Finished’ window" width="640" height="250" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click the “View Wrapper in Finder” button.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-4_app_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of a Finder window showin ‘Max Payne.app’" width="640" height="389" />
		<p>
			This is an empty Mac application with a psuedo-Windows environment inside for running PC games.
			Now we just need to install the game into it.
		</p>
	</li>
</ul>
<p>
	By default Wineskin Winery puts these bundles in <code>~/Applications/Wineskin/</code> (the Applicatons folder in
	your home folder, not the main Applications folder!). You can move the game apps anywhere you like, they are
	independent and self-contained. If you would like to change the app’s icon to something better, refer to the
	<a href="#wineskin-icon">instructions here</a>.
</p>


<h3 id="wineskin-again">How to Access the Wineskin Config App Again</h3>
<p>
	After a game is installed, if you open your app bundle the game will attempt to run (instead of showing the Wineskin
	configuration app) and if you haven’t installed any necessary patches yet, will probably crash. You will need to
	know how to get back to the Wineskin configuration app so that you may install additional software for the game as
	how to do this is not immediately obvious.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Right-click (or <kbd>ctrl</kbd>+click) on the app bundle and choose “Show Package Contents”
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-10_package.png" alt="Screenshot of context menu with ‘Show Package Contents’ selected" width="284" height="299" />
		<p>
			Another Finder window will appear:
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-11_contents_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of Finder window showing the contents of ‘Max Payne.app’" width="640" height="389" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Open “Wineskin” to return to the Wineskin configuration app
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin.png" alt="Screenshot of the Wineskin application" width="640" height="269" />
	</li>
</ul>


<h3 id="wineskin-icon">Changing the App Bundle Icon</h3>
<p>
	If you would like a swanky icon for your app instead of the deafult red Wineskin logo, follow these instructions.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Locate an icon file. For example, I used one on the game CD
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-18_ico_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of a Finder window with a Max Payne icon selected" width="640" height="365" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Open the icon file, it should open in Preview.app by deafult
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-19_preview_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of said icon visible in the Preview application" width="640" height="425" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click on the “<kbd>File</kbd>” menu, then “<kbd>Save As…</kbd>”
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-20_icns.png" alt="Screenshot of save-as sheet with ‘ICNS’ as the selected format" width="640" height="496" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Change the format to “<code>ICNS</code>” and then click “Save”<br />
			(This converts the Windows-format icon into a Mac-format icon file)
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Open the app bundle’s <a href="#wineskin-again">Wineskin config app</a>
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin.png" alt="Screenshot of the Wineskin app" width="640" height="269" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click on “Advanced”, you’ll be presented with this interface
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-21_advanced_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of the Wineskin Configuration dialog, numerous options are present, including a ‘Browse’ button next to an icon" width="640" height="362" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click the “Browse” button next to the icon and choose the ICNS file you just created
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-22_advanced_icns.png" alt="Screenshot of a Finder browser with the ‘maxpayne.icns’ file selected" width="640" height="480" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click on “Done” in the previous interface, then “Quit” in the Wineskin configuration app
			window.<br />
			The app bundle’s icon should now be changed <code>:)</code>
		</p>
	</li>
</ul>

<hr />


<h2 id="maxpayne">Installing Max Payne</h2>
<p>
	Please ensure that you have first followed the instructions in the <a href="#wineskin">Installing Wineskin</a>
	section.
</p>
<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-0_title_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of Max Payne title screen" width="640" height="509" />
<p>
	Yes, that’s a PC version of Max Payne running on a Mac. <code>:)</code>
</p>


<h3 id="maxpayne-install">Install Max Payne</h3>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Create a new blank app bundle named “Max Payne” in Wineskin Winery using
			<a href="#wineskin-new">these instructions</a>
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Place your Max Payne CD in the drive, or otherwise have the install files from the disc to hand in
			a folder somewhere
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Open the “Max Payne” app bundle you made in the previous step (don’t try run the Max Payne
			installer from the disc). You are prompted by the Wineskin app:
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin.png" alt="Screenshot of ‘Wineskin’ application with ‘Install Windows Software’, ‘Set Screen Options’, ‘Advanced’ and ‘Quit’ buttons" width="640" height="269" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click the “Install Windows Software button”, a file browser appears:
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-5_browse_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of Finder browser pointed at ‘Install.exe’ on the Max Payne CD" width="640" height="412" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Navigate to the “Install.exe” on the disc and click “Choose”.<br />
			After a moment, the Max Payne autorun will appear (as it would on a PC)
		</p>
	</li>
</ul>
<figure>
	<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-6_autorun.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="499" />
</figure>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Click on “Install Max Payne”. You might get this warning:
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-7_memory1.png" alt="Screenshot of warning that reads ‘You don’t have enough system memory to run the game. Are you sure you want to continue?’" width="359" height="114" />
		<p>
			This is not a problem, it’s just a minor quirk with Wine
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click “Yes” and then “OK” to continue, the game will still be able to play.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-7_memory2.png" alt="Screenshot of warning that reads ‘Setup will now continue, but the game may be unplayable until you upgrade your system memory.’" width="367" height="127" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Please proceed through setup as you normally would on a PC, no options need to be changed and
			please ensure that you use the “Full Installation” option when asked rather than the Minimum
			Installation.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-8_install1.png" alt="Screenshot of Max Payne installation wizard welcome screen" width="504" height="379" />

	</li><li>
		<p>
			When you reach the end, untick the two checkboxes, neither of these are necessary
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-8_install4.png" alt="Screenshot of Max Payne installation finished with two checkboxes (unticked) for ‘View Readme’ and ‘Create a Shortcut on my Desktop’" width="504" height="379" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click on “Finish” and after a brief moment, this window should appear.<br />
			If the selected executable does not say “MaxPayne.exe”, please change it to do so.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-9_exe.png" alt="Screenshot of the ‘Choose Executable’ window with the choice ‘/Program Files/Max Payne/MaxPayne.exe’ selected" width="640" height="193" />
		<p>
			This tells the Wineskin wraper which program to run when you double-click the app bundle. (In this
			case, obviously, the game program)
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click on “OK”, you should be returned to the Wineskin app.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/wineskin.png" alt="Screenshot of Winskin application (as before)" width="640" height="269" />
	</li><li>
		<p>Click on Quit to exit the Wineskin app</p>
	</li>
</ul>
<p>
	Max Payne is now installed, but will not be playable until you have patched it to the latest version (if your disc
	was an early one) and installed a No-CD crack so that you can play without the disc in the drive.
</p>


<h3 id="maxpayne-105">Patching Max Payne to v1.05</h3>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Download the v1.05 patch (not the game demo) from one of the mirrors on this site:<br />
			<a href="http://3drealms.com/max/downloads.html" rel="external">3drealms.com/max/downloads.html</a>
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Open the Wineskin configuration app for Max Payne (see <a href="#wineskin-again">instructions
			here</a>)
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click the “Install Windows Software” button and choose the patch file you downloaded

	</li><li>
		<p>
			Click “OK” and after a short while you will be prompted to choose the executable again, this
			should already be “MaxPayne.exe” so leave it as is and click “OK”

		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-9_exe.png" alt="Screenshot of the ‘Choose Executable’ window" width="640" height="193" />
	</li>
</ul>


<h3 id="maxpayne-nocd">Principles of Installing a No-CD Patch</h3>
<p>
	Due to the blocking of debuggers (anti-piracy), Max Payne will not run in Wine without a no-CD patch that removes
	these limitations.
</p><p>
	I can’t provide you a link to a no-CD patch because in some non-free countries where citizens don’t own the
	software they pay for (like the USA for example) such things are considered illegal, but if you were to enter “Max
	Payne” and “no CD” into a search engine, something might happen.
</p><p>
	Generally no-CD patches will fall into two types. The first are patching programs that you run and they locate the
	game files and modify them. To install these, just follow the same instructions as <a href="#maxpayne-105">patching
	Max Payne to v1.05</a>.
</p><p>
	The second type of patch is a <em>replacement executable</em>. These patches require you to copy and paste a new EXE
	file replacing the old one. I’ll provide instructions on how to do that here as it is not obvious how to find the
	right “Program Files” folder for the game on the Mac.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Just like opening the app bundle to <a href="#wineskin-again">get to the Wineskin configuration
			app</a>, you need to right click (or <kbd>ctrl</kbd>+click) on the app bundle and choose
			“Show Package Contents”.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-10_package.png" alt="Screenshot of context menu with ‘Show Package Contents’ selected" width="284" height="299" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			In the finder Window that opens, open “drive_c” to access the ‘hard disk’ of the Windows
			environment inside the app bundle
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-14_drivec_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of a Finder window showing the contents of ‘Max Payne.app’ with the ‘drive_c’ folder selected" width="640" height="389" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Drill through the folders “Program Files” → “Max Payne”
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-15_folder_thumb.png" alt="Screenshot of the contents of the ‘Program Files/Max Payne’ folder" width="640" height="389" />
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Drag and drop your replacement executable from where ever you have it stored into the Finder
			window and choose “Replace” when prompted.
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/wineskin_guide/maxpayne-16_replace.png" alt="Screenshot of copy dialog asking to replace ‘MaxPayne.exe’ with a newer version" width="640" height="200" />
	</li>
</ul>


<h3 id="maxpayne-play">Playing Max Payne</h3>
<p>
	Finally, with all that done, Max Payne will be playable. Just double-click on the app bundle and you should be
	greeted with the familiar launcher!

	If you have the CD version of the game (USA &amp; UK) rather than the DVD version (Europe), you will be prompted to

<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			The solution to this is to hold the eject button down for a few seconds and you’ll get a prompt

</ul>
<p>
	<small><em>Note:</em> I am not sure if the force eject feature is present in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. If you are not
	able to eject the disc, cancel the installation and then copy each CD to separate folders on the computer and then
	use the directory browser on the “Please insert Tron 2.0 disc 2” window to locate the second CD folder.</small>
</p>
<ul>
	<li>Place the second CD in the drive, wait until it mounts in OS X, and then click the “OK” button on the
	“Please insert Tron 2.0 disc 2” window</li>
</ul>
<p>
	You don’t need to tick either of these boxes.

<h3 id="tron20-vcrun6">Install Visual C++ Runtime 6</h3>
<p>
	At the time of writing this guide Tron 2.0 uses a part of the Microsoft Visual C++ 6 Runtime that is not yet
	implemented in Wine. Therefore we need to install a copy of the Visual C++ 6 Runtime to get the game to run.
</p>
<ul>
	<li>
		<p>
			Using the instructions on how <a href="#wineskin-again">How to Access the Wineskin Config App

<h3 id="tron20-patch">Install Unofficial Patch 1.042c</h3>
<p>
	The Unofficial Patch 1.042c is the same as the official patch but fixes some additional bugs and removes the
	requirement of having the CD in the drive to play (no-CD).
</p><p>
	The unofficial patch is maintained by a team called the Living Dead System Operators (LDSO) on a
	<a href="http://tronfaq.blogspot.com" rel="external">blog dedicated to Tron 2.0</a>. An
	<a href="http://tronfaq.blogspot.com/2006/02/all-tron-20-files-in-one-place.html" rel="external">extensive

	With that done, Tron 2.0 should be playable!—but we’re not out of the woods yet!
</p>


<h3 id="tron20-killerapp">Install the Killer App Mod</h3>
<p>
	Out of the box Tron 2.0 does not support widescreen resolutions (like 1440×900, 1920×1200), only 4:3 resolutions
	like 1024×768. The Killer App Mod for Tron 2.0 adds support for these resolutions in (as well as the necessary
	corrections to the cutscenes), but also fixes lots of outstanding bugs with the game as well as adding new content
	in (especially around multiplayer). For more details see the Read Me file in the Killer App Mod download.
</p><p>
