Introduction

This guide will show you how to install audio game manager and get some games running on the mac.

Disclaimer

This set of instructions may not work for everyone. This has been tested on Catalina and Big Sur. Not all games will work. After the Catalina update, most of the 32-bit support has been removed. This uses wine-crossover, which has 32-bit support but is bigger, and has issues with 64-bit wine prefixes, as far as I know. The only 64-bit game is sequence storm. The automation we use with xdotool is not supported on mac, some installers will require manual intervention.

M1 Mac

The M1 installs ARM versions of everything by default. To install the x86_64 version of homebrew, run the following:

arch -x86_64 /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

In the rest of the instructions, replace lines that start with brew with:

arch -x86_64 /usr/local/bin/brew

The ARM version of home brew and the x86 version are in two separate locations, so it is ok to have both installed.

Installation

Install Xcode from the mac AppStore. Search for Xcode and install. Beware that Xcode is over 1gb in size and may take a while on some connections.

Open terminal from the utilities folder, and run the following command to install the command line developer tools.

xcode-select --install

And follow the prompts.

a Note About Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper must be disabled for audiogame-manager to work correctly. Run the following command to disable gatekeeper.

sudo spctl --master-disable

Install homebrew, which is a package manager for the mac that allows you to install unix apps. Learn more Here To install homebrew, run the following command in the terminal.

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

Run the following command to install the essential packages.

brew install bash cliclick coreutils gawk wget dialog sox unix2dos grep w3m

Run the following commands to install wine and winetricks. First add the tap:

brew tap gcenx/wine

Then install Wine:

brew install cask --no-quarantine wine-crossover

Then install winetricks:

brew install winetricks

Help

View help by running:

./audiogame-manager.sh -h

Voiceover Tip:

Voiceover will not always read well in dialogs in the terminal. To get around this, when going up or down, and you hear the letter announced, up and down or down and up respectively should then correctly read what is highlighted.

Installing a game

You can install a new game by running:

./audiogame-manager.mac -i

Select the game and press enter.

Launching A Game

Run audiogame-manager without any flags to launch a game.

./audiogame-manager.mac

64 Bit Games

64 bit games will most likely not work. For the other games, try and see. Remember that games that require the Linux utility xdotool will require manual intervention to install on the Mac.
