    Thanks qan, yeah already tried this but it doesn't work on my current operating system (Catalina).

      As I understand it, this is for Catalina. I don't closely follow Apple products, though, so I wouldn't be the best to confirm. You could try DMing some of those here who've gotten it to work, or explain where the process breaks down for you.

      There's also the option of buying an older Windows system. I'd look for something running Win 7 or earlier (the newer the OS gets the more likely it is to cause issues with SS), and ideally something that was top of the line when it came out, but now has trouble fetching more than $50. If a laptop, could output to an external monitor.

        Why does it keep breaking? What changes?

          qan, I've been using a 15" ASUS laptop for SS, which is fine, but recently got my MacBook fixed and they automatically installed the latest OS for me. I've been using a MacBook for SS for roughly 10 years, and after the second or third year I upgraded my OS and spiffyguy needed to upgrade his workaround for Continuum to be compatible. He had to do this for me 2-3 times over the past 10 years and was always successful at providing a working upgrade whenever I installed the latest OS and the older version of Continuum wasn't compatible. However, he has been MIA, and I haven't been able to let him know his workaround doesn't apply to Catalina.

          It's not that it's "breaking", Rab , it's that I recently had the latest OS installed and now when I try to run Continuum it doesn't work. I've tried porting apps, redownloading Wine, Wineskin, XQuartz, all the old stuff that used to work is no longer working on Catalina. By "no longer working" I mean I double click, or right click and "Open" the Continuum icon and nothing happens. Nothing loads. No apps are seen running under "Force Quit" that I can shut down.

          The only solution is spiffyguy just needs to do what he usually does to update the Continuum package for MacOS. Hopefully he gets online to see these messages someday.

            If you're not able to replicate it like Stryke did at https://forums.trenchwars.com/suppor...50#post1333550 there's not much else that can be said. It seems someone else had luck replicating this method. I'd try doing it again and following each step to the letter.

            If that doesn't work, you could always Boot Camp it and buy a $5 Windows key off of eBay.

              System Setup
              1. Disable SIP: http://osxdaily.com/2015/10/05/disab...tion-mac-os-x/

              Getting the files ready
              2. Download Wineskin Winery https://portingteam.com/topic/11037-...eskin-project/
              3. Download Continuum 0.40d - this is a package that someone else created, but no longer works on Catalina. You’ll need this for the Continuum files. http://www.mediafire.com/file/t0dz6t...d_Mac.dmg/file
              3. Using Wineskin, install Engine WS11WineCX64Bit19.0.1

              Getting the wrapper ready
              4. Create New Blank Wrapper (call it Continuum 0.40e or whatever else you’d like)
              5. Right-click Continuum 0.40e and hit “Show Package Contents”
              6. Install Continuum 0.40d, navigate to it and hit “Show Package Contents”. Move the Continuum folder over from C:\Program Files\Continuum to the same folder in the Continuum 0.40e wrapper you just created. Also copy over the “Contents\Resources” folder.

              Wine settings
              7. Open Wineskin and click Advanced - you’re in the Configuration Tab
              8. Set Windows EXE to "C:\Program Files\Continuum\Continuum.exe"
              9. Set Menubar Name to Continuum 0.40e
              10. Set Version to 0.40
              11. Set Wine Debug to err+all,fixme+all
              12. Set the icon by going to the Contents -> Resources -> Wineskin.icns
              13. In the Advanced Tab, check “Disable Gecko Installation…”

              … and you’re good to go!
              Going to try this later. Quoted for visibility. Thanks qan

                No problem, if it works (or doesn't) and you don't mind posting an update, please do -- that'll help others in the future. Could even try uploading the package and seeing if it'll work for anyone else.

                  Missing some options like resolution selection, but otherwise it worked pretty seamlessly. Thanks qan!

                    Ahh, that's due to missing some registry keys. The one that prevents you in particular from loading resolutions is ColorDepth.

                    You can load the default registry values by opening a console and typing:

                    wine regedit

                    Then Registry -> Import Registry File.

                    I've attached the registry file to import here. You may need to rename this to a .reg extension.

                    (Or, also using regedit, just add the ColorDepth key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Continuum\Options and set its value to 32. But you might still have a few other minor problems.)
