(Not) Using Construct with WINE or VMs...

New releases and general discussions.

You could try informing the WINE project that WINE doesn't work with Construct. They might be able to fix it then.

The crash detail seems to include something about accessing the internet. Have you tried disabling automatic update checks? Change UpdateCheck=1 to UpdateCheck=0 in Construct.ini (C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Scirra) to disable.

Changing that value makes no difference whatsoever. Setting the Theme option to 0 seems to get a little further along before it crashes.

Looking at a crash log it talks a lot about WineX11 and XRender.

I'd definitely put money on it being our UI lib being the issue, so that's something Wine needs to work on.

From Googling I do get the impression WINE has issues with Prof-UIS, yes...

Hmm ... I've got access to an apple. What do I need to do?
Is there a version of WINE for Macs?

Edit: Here we go, I found it: Apple Wine. I bought a bottle ... I let you know how it goes.

Edit2: No really, I have access to a mac. Is there some way I can try to get Construct on it?

I think you're right. I found that if you set the mac right by a PC and apply apple wine then once the double vision sets in you're off and running.
