In using my "Uru Complete Chronicles.dmg" file, the total filesize should be 215.2MB once it's downloaded (and yes, it's very big!). If you double-click the file, it should mount on your hard drive as an extra drive (the same way all DMG files mount, when you are installing new applications) and pop up a small screen showing the Wineskin Application along with a shortcut to your Applications folder.
Dragging the Uru Complete Chronicles icon over the Applications icon will initiate the installation of the Wineskin App into your Applications folder. Once that is completed, you can eject the DMG by clicking the up arrow in your Finder sidebar.
Next, go to your Applications folder, find the Uru Complete Chronicles application and double click it, which will launch Wineskin.
Here's where the installation process is different and more complicated. Click the Advanced button and then go to the Tools tab (yes, it doesn't really look like a tab...). Then click the Command Line Shell button.
This will launch a window where you will need to type in commands to go find your setup_uru_cc_18.104.22.168.exe file. I like to keep a Finder window open showing me where this file is located on my Mac so I can double-check the directory names easily. Here are the commands you will need to use to browse around:cd
An abbreviation for "change directory". The cd
is followed by a space and the name of where you want to go. To get started, I typed cd /
which means go to the very top-level directory. Once there, I could start to drill down to where I'd stashed my setup_uru_cc_22.214.171.124.exe file.dir
An abbreviation for "display the current directory contents". You can use this to view the different folder and filenames for your current location, which is helpful if you aren't sure where you are or what is there. Keep in mind that if there is lots of content, the output will look very busy (this is why it's really handy to have that Finder window nearby).
If you need to go back up a level (if you just went to the wrong directory), then typing cd ..
will take you back up one level.
You'll notice that the command line window shows you your location on the left side of each line; very helpful!
Once you get to the location where your setup_uru_cc_126.96.36.199.exe file is found, the next step is to type in the command that will start the installation. So you will type in the complete filename of your installation file followed by a space and then /nogui
, like this: setup_uru_cc_188.8.131.52.exe /nogui
Next, things will start to install!!
At least in my test, the automatic suggestion was to install directly under the C: drive (instead of in a folder on the C: drive), so I changed the destination:
After this point, you'll need to do a bit of cleanup and then test the installation to ensure it works properly. So go back to the command line window and type in exit
This will close the command line window.
Next, go back to the Wineskin window and click the Configuration tab. You'll see that the Windows EXE box isn't pointing to the game file, so click the Browse button and then find the UruCC installation inside the Wineskin.
After that, click the Test Run button to ensure UruCC works correctly.
Once you've done enough with the game to feel satisfied it's working, you can quit the game in order to finish the test run. Next, you can quit Wineskin by either clicking the upper left red button or using the Mac Wineskin menu and selecting Quit Wineskin.
The second method is more reliable since sometimes part of Wineskin may still be running in the background where you might not notice it.
To play the game, go to the Uru Complete Chronicles application in your Applications folder and double-click.
