MM8BDM V1D Mac OSX Package

Posted by admin | Releases | Wednesday 20 April 2011 3:10 pm

I remember when MM8BDM was first released, many Mac users couldn’t get it to work. This was usually due to problems with getting the correct version of Skulltag to work or compile, or figuring out how to run the blasted thing without the help of DoomSeeker. As I didn’t have a Mac myself, I could not assist with the installation of the game.

Luckily Belthesar has compiled a no fuss package for getting the latest version of MM8BDM working on your Mac. It uses WINE and a bunch of other stuff I don’t understand (being a feeble windows user), so I am unable to judge the quality of this. Belthesar speaks:

Hey all. I recently had the opportunity to play around with MM8BDM and had a blast. As I saw there wasn’t a good OS X release due to some issues with Skulltag compiling for OS X, I decided to play around with getting it to run in a WINE implementation, and had excellent success. The difference between other WINE systems and the one I’ve used is that I’m using an implementation called Wineskin, which is designed to make a standalone wrapper for Windows applications on OS X. This means that people playing with Mac OS X can double-click and play without having to fiddle around and get the game working.

tl;dr – I’m hosting a no-mess solution to play MM8BDM on Mac OS X.

System Requirements:

Intel Mac- all versions of WINE require an X86 processor.

2 GB of RAM. MM8BDM isn’t a system resource hog, but OS X can be.

As far as tested specs, this wrapper is known to work on a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4 GB of RAM, and Mac OS X 10.6.7. It should run on earlier versions of Snow Leopard, and on Leopard, but I can make no guarantees. This current release does not include Doom Seeker, as I only played Single Player. I will be updating the package to include it soon.

Use the download link below to obtain the package. As I said, I don’t have a Mac to test this so I cannot help you set this up. If you would like speak to the author of this package however, you can request help or provide feedback on the forum thread.
