G'day guys I'm new here and I have worked out how to open up and use Magic Set Editor 2.0.1 on Mac OS X.
1. Download either the basic or advanced version 2. Download Wineskin Winery 3. Extract both downloads and open the Wineskin Winery app 4. In the Wineskin Winery app download an engine if you don't already have one, then select an engine and click "Create New Blank Wrapper" 5. After it's finished click the "View in finder" 6. Open up the app you just made and go to screen options 7. Make sure "Auto Detect GPU Info for Direct3D" is UNCHECKED if you are in High Sierra or above. 8. Click Done --> Install Software --> Copy a Folder Inside 9. Navigate to where the extracted MSE folder is (the basic or advanced), click the folder once then click "choose" 10. Make sure the mse.exe is the starting executable by clicking the drop down menu and selecting is. 11. DONE!!!! You are ready to go!
Hi! I've gotten MSE to open just fine using Wine, but the fonts are wrong. I can't seem to figure out why, but it's something about the way Wine is reading the file. The reason I know this is a little test I did.
I've been running a very old version of wine with a very old version of MSE. In this case, I literally have to redownload the entire program every time I want to open it, and it doesn't have any of the modern templates at all. Hence why I wanted to update. But upon getting the necessary wine components together and launching to a pleasantly function program, I immediately saw that the fonts are wrong and, honestly, that makes it almost not worth using. They look nothing like magic cards with the wrong font. But to test what was the issue, using my NEW Wine version (4.0.1), I launched my older version of MSE (that had correct fonts when launching through the old version of Wine). This too had wrong fonts, proving that it was not the version of MSE that was the issue, but that Wine for some reason can't read the fonts. Any ideas on how to fix this?
