C2 and WineBottler for Macs

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Nov 16, 2013 11:16 am

I've just come across something called WineBottler that makes .exe files into .app files so they can be run on Macs. This seems like the best solution compared to VMs (often slow) and Bootcamp (annoying to restart), but I couldn't run C2 within Steam properly. A lot works just fine, but I can't scroll the window nor access the event sheets which makes it unusable.

I'm using the newest WineBottler which isn't stable yet, so that may fix it but I doubt it. There may be better opportunities for those who has C2 separate from Steam because you can then access the advanced settings.

Any ideas? It would be so awesome if it could work because it's much faster than a VM and you don't have to restart your Mac all the friggin time if using Bootcamp.

I'd report it as an issue to WineBottler, they might be able to fix it.

@chrisriis,

just curious, how does it run, without steam, just as an app on the desktop?
