Skyrim Special Edition: Grey Screen on Startup

Post by garranaruto47 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:06 pm

Hello! I recently installed Skyrim Special edition through steam on wine, but when I start the game I am greeted with a grey screen. The bethesda logo music and Skyrim menu music play in the background, but all I can see is a grey screen. Does anyone know what the problem is?
I am using wine 4.7-staging.

You can’t play Special Edition on macOS. Due to the DirectX requirements being above DirectX9 aka the max version usable on macOS due to the old version of OpenGL suport that’s bundled with macOS.

You can play the Legendary Edition just fine it’s also still on the store but it requires a direct link to the games page to purchase.
