I am aware that solutions are available on the forum on different topics to make them work... but most of this doesn't work on mac, unless it's the alt+R thing.
In other words, I have been fiddling with crossover and the settings, but I just gave up, I never achieved anything satisfactory.
This includes KeeperFX, impossible to make it work.
So... I've been wondering if anyone between you has managed somehow to force a higher resolution than 320x200 (or 640x400), or make KeeperFX work... on MAC.
Thanks in advance for any response.
Hello, i got dungeon keeper gold + keeperfx to work on my imac with wineskin. Till now i had no crashes with the now applied options.
But i didn´t have the time to test it longer than say 20 minutes. So i am not sure if there will be or are problems i don´t know off.
These were the steps i took:
You will need wineskin, keeperfx and the GOG Version of Dungeon Keeper Gold for windows.
First Download the windows version of dungeon keeper gold from gog. Then create a blank wrapper with wineskin. Update wineskin wrapper und use the latest version (i have 2.6.0). Install and use the WS9Wine1.7.13 engine.
Maybe you already know how to do this, but i will try to explain the next steps.
After wineskin creates the wrapper, choose create blank wrapper (you can name it what you want, i chose KeeperFx ), click the option show in finder or something like that after the wrapper is created. You will see your newly created wrapper in finder. Right click your wrapper and click the option show package contents. There will be folders an a wineskin icon.
Klick on it and then go to Advanced.
Browse to the downloaded dungeon keeper gold exe (you should place it within the wrapper in "drive_c/Programm Files" then click on the buttons in the bottom of the advanced window on test run. The installation setup will start. At the end just finish the installation without launching the game.
Next you should download the keeperfx files (i took version 4.6, think its the current stable) and put them in the c_drive/Programm Files/GOG Games Folder next to the fresh installed dungeon keeper gold folder. Then with wine browse to the installer.exe in the keeperfx folder and make a test run.
In the installer choose the installation folder, which is located within the wraper at drive_c/GOG Games/Dungeon Keeper Gold. After that is finished you should check the settings for your resolution in keeperfx. Mine was 1920x1080. After saving the settings you can exit and back again in wineskin advanced configuration browse to the keeperfx.exe in the keeperfx folder.
In the advanced section of wineskin click on tools, there click the Config Utility (winecfg) and on the next window klick on the Graphics tab and check "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows". Next click on the Applications tab and check at the bottom if Windows XP is set in the dropdown (it should already be set) apply and exit.
So now you should go back to Configuration in tab. You could do a test run, on my mac the game started well but it flickered a lot. So i went to screen options (next to the test run button in Advanced Configuration) and set Override on Screen Settings, Override Settings to fullscreen, Resolution again to 1920x1080, and installer options to "Use these settings" and click Done Button. Back in Configuration i set Exe Flags to "-vidriver windib" without quotes.
So if i didn't forget a step after this you can use wineskin with kepperfx and dungeon keeper gold from GOG on my imac with yosemite.
Ingame i couldn't change the resolution with Alt+r, but with cmd+r.
I am no technician expert, i googled a lot an found different answers and tested a lot. This was the way to go. I hope this helps others, but don't expect to much from me if asking something. ;)
