How to install Mx Simulator on Mac + Tracks, skins, using editor etc.

Postby Wahlamt » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:52 am

Hi!

Almost 6 years later and now I've updated my old Mac tutorials to real proper ones that actually aren't super confusing and bad... Also they should be more reliable and you don't have to pay for an "emulator". More or less everything you need to know (besides controllers) is in these videos :)

For those of you that still wants to take a look at the old thread, it can be found here.

Part 1 - Installing the game


Part 2 - Getting skins and tracks into the game


Part 3a - Updating snapshot


Part 3b - Installing an update


Part 4 - Accessing the editor


Part 5 - Stock model replacement


Using controller (links are in the video description):


The reason for this new topic is just to have all of the old junk out of the want, but still keeping the posts in that thread.

This is the procedure, you just change --editor to --hidden-pause . You can run any --command this way.

In order to launch it with custom commands, this is how you have to launch it. I want to find a better way, if I do, I'll make an updated tutorial on it.

Now also have the "installing an update" added in the 1st post, so both snapshots and updates are covered.

I can open wine and run mxsim. It freezes all the time tho. When I'm in wine I can't fine any of my tracks that I put into the folder. When I find the wine file folder it doesn't have mxsim. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. And why do you have to download xquarts? I just used wine to open mxsim and it was fine. My only problem is it freezes after five minutes of playing and when I access my wine folders I can't see mxsim

I've had the problem too where tracks aren't found, not sure why. Honestly I don't know why I had to install xquarts, but if I didn't have it, it wouldn't let me install wine. Not idea why to be honest.
