Hi everyone, I've been installing software on my Mac using Wine for quite some time
Mac OS X 10.6.8
ATI X1600 128 MB
Not the best specs but you'd be surprised at what will run on such an old rig.
My main inquiry for this post is concerning the Stalker series and the patch that fixed the mouse issues present in Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat pre 1.4 stable. Since around the 1.3.24 the patch I would normally use was no longer compatible due to changes in the mouse.c file.
This is the patch I had been using - http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=15638&action=diff&context=patch&collapsed=&headers=1&format=raw
Recently mr_lundis posted a revised version of this patch which is very nearly working....in fact it does work for certain games (ie F.E.A.R. Platinum & Advent Rising) Unfortunately when used for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. the results are not as desirable. The mouse becomes locked on the ground and will not warp correctly.
Here is a link to the revised patch - https://gist.github.com/1958584
Basically I'm wondering if someone here has a keen enough eye or knows what slight changes need to be made in order to make this patch work correctly for the Stalker games affected by the mouse issue. Any help or insight would be greatly appreaciated.
Here's what mr_lundis had to say about the patch
I have a fairly good idea on why the patch isn't working correctly, but I'm still not able to build Wine properly. And I'm not really up to compiling my own c-compiler to work around the issue :/
Anyway, If anyone feels like playing around a bit, then take a look at the conditionals on line 366 and forward in mouse.c. I think the issue might be that the rect is not mapped correctly to the window (compare with warp_check on line 437 for reference.)
Also, if anyone has any ideas on how to get gcc-4.2 working on Lion with XCode 4.2 I'd be very grateful.
