How I play an AGS game with Mac OS?
« on: 16 Jan 2016, 20:37 »
Hi,

I have read about a Mac OS player of AGS. How I can play any game with Mac OS X now? For example I am interested to play that game:

I have downloaded and etract it. How I can get and how I use the Mac OS player with the game data? Is there a guide for that?

Thanks!

There is work on porting the engine to OSX, but for now, most players find it easiest to use WINE.

Cannot they use Wadjet Eye's old port? The game is old enough to be runnable by that version.

Sure but you need to know how to build things with XCode.
