Do you need XQuartz?

Tried the Wineskin and XQuartz - couldn't get that to work.

The new Porting Kit worked straight away - just used the basic setup for NWN Diamond Edition, but instead of re-downloading the GoG version again I just copied the installation I already made in Windows from GoG into the Program Files folder in the Wineskin - then pointed the Wineskin setup to the nwmain.exe in that.

Then there is an option to change the screen settings in the Wineskin. In that I selected to override the default and that allowed me to select the resolution I wanted. I don't have that device running at present, so working from memory. I will provide more details next time I am running the MacBook :wink:

Awesome! Thanks.

Yeah, I was looking for the settings in Wineskin but didn't find them. No rush though. I can still get it to work fine, it just takes a few extra steps.
