Default TEW16 on Mac OSX Tutorial (Wine)

NOTE: Below is an updated version of my tutorial for TEW 2013. The tutorial was an adapted version of Judoku1819's (link) from the WMMA4 forums, so much love to him.

Due to some users having technical issue I've provided an alternative method that allows you to download a pre-created wrapper that I've made and uploaded ready to install. If you are new to wine it is recommended you use "Method 2".

What You'll Need
Method 1: Do It Yourself
  • Wineskin Winery (link)
  • TEW 16 Setup .exe ("TEW2016_RETAIL.exe")
  • TEW 16 Latest Patch .exe (optional - found in the tech support forum for TEW 2016, "TEW2016.exe")

Method 2: Pre-Made Wrapper (Easier)
  • Pre-Made Wrapper
  • TEW 16 Setup .exe ("TEW2016_RETAIL.exe")
  • TEW 16 Latest Patch .exe (optional - found in the tech support forum for TEW 2016, "TEW2016.exe")

NOTE: If using "Method 2" (the pre-made wrapper) skip to step 5.

Step 1
When you open Wineskin Winery you will need to install an engine and update the wrapper version.

To install the engine click the + button, next to the text "New Engine(s)" available, and chose the most recent one (the engine used for this tutorial is WS9Wine1.9.9).

To update the wrapper simply click update. (This may not be necessary)

Step 2
Hit the create new blank wrapper button and enter the name for the app. TEW 2016 is what I went with. This process will take a couple minutes and it is likely that you will be asked to install "Gecko" and "Mono". Hit yes and install these both as they are very important.

Step 3
Wineskin Winery will have opened up the location of the wrapper in finder. Open it up.

You'll see a screen with 4 buttons. Choose "Advanced".

Then choose the "Tools" button at the top of the page and hit "Winetricks".

Step 4
You'll need to run 5 winetricks and it is important you do these one by one. It is also important that you do not alter the install location of any of these.

NOTE: If this is not a fresh install of Wineskin Winery (i.e. if you've used it to create a wineskin wrapper before) hit the "Update Winetricks" button in the lower left corner

Firstly, search for "ie6". It is found under dll's. Select the tick box and hit run. Wineskin will display a message with a URL as well as opening a finder window. Download the file from the url and place it in the location that wineskin opened in finder. Once again search for "ie6", select the tick box and hit run. A window will come up if done correctly. Follow the prompts and install ie6. After installed it will prompt you to reboot but as we are just installing winetricks there is no need.

Secondly, search for "vb6run". Again it is under dll's. Select the tick box and hit run. This installation is quick and requires you to do nothing.

Thirdly, search for "jet40". Once again it is under dll's. Select the tick box and hit run. The installation is similar to ie6. Follow the provided link, download the file and place it into the finder window that Wineskin opened. After you've done this search for "jet40" again, select the tick box and run it. A window will pop up. Follow the prompts to install.

Fourthly, search for "native_oleaut32". This time it is under the "settings" drop down. Select the tick box and hit run. This is nice and simple and will complete by itself.

Finally, search for "allfonts". This time it'll be under fonts. It will take a minute or so but you don't need to do anything.

Once that has completed close winetricks and choose "configuration" from the top of the page.

Step 5
Now we get to the fun part. Open the wrapper and click the "Install Software" button and install TEW as normal. A prompt will come up asking you to chose the setup .exe. Select "TEW2016_RETAIL.exe".

When it has installed buy your elicense or copy it across from the computer that you have TEW installed. (I'm not sure on the copyright laws. I'm assuming this is fine, as you have already bought the game, but if not can a mod correct this. DON'T PIRATE, support the developer. I am also not 100% sure whether the DRM allows for the elisence to be copied as I purchased it through the new Mac app, so try at your own risk).

When this is done close Wineskin Winery and the new Mac TEW 2016 app if it is opened.

To navigate to the program files folder open a new finder window and click on the "GO" menu in the toolbar and choose computer. From there select "Macintosh HD" and the click on User>Applications (this is not the default applications folder). Select Wineskin and then Right-Click on TEW 2016 and chose "Show Package Content". Select the "Drive C" Alias (shortcut) and go into Program Files>GDS>TEW2013. I strongly recommend making an alias (shortcut) to this location as this is where mods/skins and patches are to be installed.

Step 6 (Optional)
Copy the latest TEW2016.exe that you may have downloaded earlier.

Navigate to the TEW2016 folder (see step 5 to work out how to find it).
Paste the file in here. A prompt will come up. To avoid bugs I recommend choosing "Keep Both Files".

Rename the original file "TEW2016_old.exe" or something similar. Rename the new file (that is called "TEW2016 copy.exe") to "TEW2016.exe".

And now you're done. Congrats. Enjoy TEW on Mac. If any problems arise feel free to reply and I'll do my best to help you.

Note:
  • To install mods navigate to the directory in step 5 and proceed as normal.
  • One known issue is the ovsBooleanControl.ocx error AKA Runtime Error 339. This occurs when clicking on certain buttons. If this happens to you, navigate into User>Applications>Wineskin>TEW 2016 (Right click, show package content)>Drive C>Windows>System 32. Find the file named "OVSB~3IL.OCX" and rename it to "ovsBooleanControls.ocx". When the application is next started the "OVSB~3IL.OCX" file will be re-created but as we already have the correct file this is alright.

Proof:



EDIT: For clarification this is confirmed working on both OS X Yosemite and OS X El Capitan, older operating systems should work but are not confirmed too by me. If anyone has any luck installing on OS X Mavericks or earlier let me know and I'll update this.

Hi! I play on Mac using Wine, have a question you might be able to answer. Do you know how to make the TEW screen larger in WINE? The font is size 12 and it strains my eyes sometimes to read it.

I'm honestly not familiar enough with Linux to be able to give you a good answer.

What model computer are you using? Do you know your resolution?

The process might be a little different depending on the version of wine (I know Linux wine is mostly command line) but the actual steps of installing the winetricks and then the exe should work on Linux. If you try it out let me know.

Can anyone help me with an issue I'm having when clicking on certain buttons in the game(played through Wine).

When i click on, say "Product", a run time error pops up and kills the game.

It says the following:

Run-Time Error '339'

Component 'ovsBooleanControls.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered. A file is missing or invalid.

I've tried reinstalling, including going through the set up process for WineTricks again, but just get the same issue.

Its frustrating as ive had it working fine, but had to reinstal after formatting my hard drive.

Any help would be appreciated!

Edit: I figured out how to unlicense on mac using wineskin. Here's the steps for anyone who can't figure it out.

1. Go to the Wineskin TEW 2016 shortcut that you use to play the game.
2. Right click -> show package contents -> drive c -> program files -> GDS -> TEW 2016
3. Duplicate the TEW2016.exe
4. On the Duplicated version rename it "TEW2016.exe -unlicense"
5. Right click on that duplicated version and 'Make Alias'
6. Drag that alias to the desktop
7. Once it's on the desktop (or just in a different folder than the original) rename the alias to "TEW2016.exe -unlicense"
8. Drag that alias from the desktop to the Wineskin shortcut that you normally use to play the game. Doing so will temporarily change the .exe file that it opens to be the file which you dragged onto it (in this case the TEW 2016.exe -unlicense).
9. TEW will open and ask you if you want to unlicense just like on the PC.

Et voila. You probably don't need to do the duplicating bit but it's a safety measure in case you mess up a file path when unlicensing. I'm going to relicense to my mac at a later time.

Do this:

1) Right click the TEW 2016 icon and Show in Finder

2) Right click again and Show package contents

3) Click then Drive C, Program Files, GDS, TEW2016 and in the end Pictures.

From that point you can choose between the database and change all the pictures you want.

I know i post here a lot but whenever i try to run the winetricks part the app opens and it won't complete the process and says i have to close the wrapper before i do it and even though i close it multiple times it still opens and happens whenever i try to run vb6run

well i figured that out now it said that it couldn't open cause the executable file wasn't found or something

I still cannot get this to work on Wine

I can go all the way through the install process with the demo for now, but when I set it to be the .exe file to actually run the game, just nothing happens, even when I do test run.

I have had it working before which is so frustrating but I cannot figure out what is wrong here

I get WMMA5 to work following this thread on Arch Linux.


Installing `native_oleaut32` and `allfonts` via winetricks solves some UI issues like font, thumbnail color resolutions in WMMA5

I use a different WINEPREFIX so I have to do one more thing:

Copy and rename ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/syswow64/OVSB~3IL.OCX to ~/.tew-wine/drive_c/windows/syswow64/ovsBooleanControls.ocx which can fix a crash on clicking in some buttons.

Updated:

This file also has to be copied:
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/syswow64/Msflxgrd.ocx to ~/.tew-wine/drive_c/windows/syswow64/Msflxgrd.ocx

I've replaced the file as stated and am still getting the same error when trying to edit a specific venue in the editor. I'm afraid of running into it in-game as well. Does this work better when using a self-made Wineskin vs. the pre made?
