Welcome to Touhou Answers. What would you like to know?

Template:ThreadMode Being a Linux user, I can't say for sure that this will work, but the tricks mentioned in Running in Linux should probably apply for Mac OS as well. Wine, a program to run windows executables, is cross-platform for most non-Microsoft operative systems.Look up the Wine FAQ, search for the Mac section, and you will hopefully get enough information to get all things running. Good luck! TOUHOU-Tyle 07:40, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Heh... [Quote]: If you are running Mac OS X there are no official builds yet. The main reason is that Apple X11 is badly broken, and Wine doesn't run well with it. We don't like giving users a bad impression of Wine. So yeah that is the problem. According to this blog some person found a way for it to work :S Jonathanasdf 07:52, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
I see, I missed the sentence for Darwine that said "DirectDraw and Direct3D applications do not run at all", which of course will make all Touhou games unplayable. Too bad :( TOUHOU-Tyle 08:23, 7 November 2008 (UTC)


No the new version of wine makes touhou games 99% playable. Its just that Macs can't run wine. So you don't know of another method right :(
Thanks for your time though. Jonathanasdf 08:46, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, as mentioned in the FAQ above there is a wine port to Mac, called Darwine. But then again the wine FAQ claims that "DirectDraw and Direct3D applications do not run at all" for Darwine. The only way to be sure is to test and see. TOUHOU-Tyle 16:36, 7 November 2008 (UTC)


You could use CrossOver, which is kind of like a (developmental?) port of Wine to Macintosh. Unfortunately, it's not free, but it runs all Touhou games from 6-9 (unfortunately, the others can't be run, and the fighting games don't work) and can run them as well as they can be run on Linux, with a few minor glitches here and there. As for the cost thing, you can easily find cracks for this software.
Please remember that you could also run Boot Camp on your Mac, or some form of Virtual Computer environment. However, Boot Camp requires you split you hard drive space to some degree, and virtual machines make a real woman out of your RAM.
These are what I recommend, anyway. --ArseneLupin3 19:55, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
