I'm working on a installation/configuration script to run DR on Mac OS, using Wine (and frontend PlayonMac/Playonlinux)
Because there is no DR build for Mac os, at the moment (windows and linux users are in luck).
I also did this succesfully for TDM. (tdm forumpost, post at Playonlinux).

I hope some (Linux/Mac os) users who would like to help me, configure a wine-environment to run DR on it.
The part of the script that create the wine-environment works fine and DR runs (after setting the project paths).
DR crashes at some points (like drawing a block, load textures, etc) but the console works!

For the experienced users:
This pol/pom script creates a wine 1.7.16 wine environment, install's vc++2013 and set the renderer to opengl.
After this, pol/pom download and runs manualy the DR installer and creates a shortcut.

To run the installation script and test DR, follow the steps:
  • install playonmac/playonlinux
  • copy the script from the spoiler in a text file and save it. Or download the attachment
  • start playonlinux / playonmac
  • select tools > run a local script > select the script and accept all warnings.
    (in one of the windows, you will find a debug-button in the left down corner)
  • The installer ask you how you would like to install dr, select online
  • POL creates the wine environment and create a shortcut for DR.
  • copy your darkmod folder to the created /drive_c/games/
  • Start DR using the shortcut or trough the wine taskmanager
(you can also install TDM from POL/POM first. Select install > games > check no-cd path/drm > the dark mod. and change the prefix in the script to "TheDarkMod")

post edit -
added new version of the polscript and debug info.

Great work in making TDM/ DR accessible to even more users.

I'm going to give that script a whirl pretty soon, when I install Kubuntu.

Can't get this script to work on 16.04. Meaning it goes through the warnings, but then nothing happens.
