Hello! so I've managed to get MXS working on my late 2012 macbook pro using wineskin. I've managed to also get the xbox360 controller working, however the right and left triggers do not wok on this game for me. any solutions? other than that the game runs great and the controller works great (except for triggers not working). The only problem i have is downloading tracks and skins. I've watched the video on how to do it but when i choose to extract them i cannot put them in my mx simulator folder, or into the game itself. i am able to extract them to .saf files and from there i try to drag them into the folder, which works except they do not appear in my game. I'm new to the computer gaming thing but I've managed to get it working for me, all except the tracks and skins. Could someone please help me out? i eventually want to get a gaming pc that runs windows but right now i have my mac and would like something new instead of the basic tracks and horrible stock skins. Thank you in advance if anyone decides to help me.

I downloaded the game and everything runs fine on my mac. But for some reason none of the tracks or skins show up even though i have unzipped them and have them in the same folder as all of the other .saf files

check your mx sim folder. It should be near the credits or near the saf 2013 file. Your can try searching mx.exe. If it does not appear try re downloading.

Hey Lipps check this link, I have been running non sensitive bumpers for 2 months and finally got it to work from this link for the Ds4 controller. It works perfectly. http://redbud.mxsimulator.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35643 Credit goes to Guggen

If you need help with the triggers or something with the controller, just pm me :D



Pm'd!

Hi guys! I've recently got myself a Macbook and wanted to update my super old tutorials and do them properly this time. It seems that most people have gone to Wine instead of crossover, which is good I guess, since it's free. When I tried to look up "wine", it seemed like there was a few different ones out there, sooo... which ones do you guys use/have tried? These are the ones I found initially:

winehq.org is the official site. Probably the easiest since it just puts its files in ~/.wine instead of some weird "bottle" scheme.

Have you installed it using the old or new way? (Crossover or Wine)

Anyone using wine on MacOS 10.13.1 (High Sierra)? Had to update my OS to update XCode which was dumb but thats beside the point. Anyway, the latest version of Wine just produces a black screen. My guess is it doesn't work or I need to reinstall sim? It's not too big of a deal since I'll be back at my PC in a few days, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this.

Seems to be a file system error, for the newer computers with ssds. The guy that answered wrote a longer more in depth of why, that you can probably find via his profile. So newest wine version won't work, nor reinstalling sim, tried both :( we'll just have to wait :(
