Wine on Mac OS X Catalina

Post by tiloketi9 » Fri Sep 11, 2020 12:34 am

Hi guys,

I have seen a few of your posts about the issue that wine has on Mac OS X Catalina because of the 32-bit restriction.



I recently moved from a Windows laptop to a MacBook Pro and I'm kinda new in the industry. I am studying system administration but I'm still in the beginning so I have some basic knowledge of Linux so far, not enough to help me find a way about working with Wine, however.



I would like to ask, in summary, what would be the best way to install Wine to play some PC games? I am currently mostly looking to play World of Warcraft and / or Dead By Daylight. Is there a way that these games can be played on Catalina currently?



The MacBook is kinda strong so it shouldn't have an issue with whatever method is possible with Wine about performance, as far as I know.

Blizzard has provided a native WoW client on macOS for years so you can use the official client, if your playing on a private server then use CrossOver.

Dead By Daylight Requires DirectX11 so currently can’t be played using wine but properly will run in CrossOver-20

The alternative is using the BootCamp utility and installing Windows 10 and playing any Windows only games via that instead.
