I downloaded winskin-winery and began my testing.
First attempt: Dune 2000 (Fantastic strategy-game from 1999. Superbe graphics, sound, great atmosphere.)
All you have to do is downloading the suitable engine for the game and copy the windows-installation into the folder.
In this case you have to choose WS8WineCXG8.1.0 if you choose another engine you will get a mousepointer-error.
keep in mind:
CXG Engine is built with Wine source code that was modified by Codeweavers to use in their product called Crossover Games. This may have changes that help compatibility with certain games that Crossover Games supports.
ICE means Installable Compressed Engine. This means the engine is stored in compressed format inside of the wrapper, and when you go to run it, it will automatically install the engine onto your machine (in your home folder, Library, under Application Support and Wineskin). This comes in very handy because the same installed engine is used for every wrapper you run that has the same ICE version. Say you have 5 programs that all run fine with a certain ICE version, you can have them all share that same install, which means instead of a 100mb install of Wine inside each wrapper, there is a single one on the system... so for those 5 wrappers, instead of taking up 500mb (a half a GB) of space, you can take up a simple 100mb. Since the Engine is compressed and automatically self installing, you can still share these wrappers around to anyone you'd like. The first time they run it they'll get a little Window saying its putting the engine on their machine... depending how fast the machine is, it can take from about 10 seconds to under a minute. I like these because I can use them to test a lot, and I have a dozen or so little simple programs that can all share the same engine.
Is anyone here that also uses wineskin-winery ?
