    Tibia and Xenobot OSX



    Tibia and XenoSuite on OSX


    About


    Hey everyone. This is just a little package I've been working on to reintroduce myself to the community. Basically, I created a Wine wrapper and installed Tibia and Xenobot into it. By doing this, I eliminated the need for others to install Wine and try to set everything up just right. Now, all one has to do to run Tibia and Xenobot is run the app that he/she can keep in any folder


    How It Works


    Basically, a Wine wrapper creates an Apple ".app" file that encompasses (or "wraps" around) Windows files that you wish to run. *Think of it like a virtual environment (even though it's not actually a VE)* Besides the files that you wish to wrap, there's a fake C: drive and registry that keeps track of what your programs alter. So ultimately, the resulting app is a self-contained windows C: drive and any programs placed in it.


    How To Set It Up


    Well, it's quite simple to be honest. Simply download the file at the end of the thread, extract the .zip file over to your applications folder (or any folder for that matter), and you're done. Then you can easily run Tibia and XenoSuite and the injector will work properly (since I managed to put the bot and Tibia in the same self-contained wrapper).




    Frequently Asked Questions


    If anyone has any good questions that I feel may affect multiple users, I'll gladly add them to the main thread, so ask away

    If the app uses Wine, why don't I need Wine to use it?
    Well, that's why I said that it's self-contained. I used Wineskin to create a wrapper, so it basically allowed me to install windows programs into a mac application that any OSX computer can run.
    Why is the app so large when Tibia and XenoSuite on Windows are less than 100MB?
    The reason why the file seems much bigger than it is on Windows is because both Tibia and XenoSuite have dependencies (NET. Framework, for example) that need to be placed inside the wrapper to ensure that it would be self-contained. Tibia and XenoSuite themselves aren't actually the files taking up the space, it's the programs they depend on. Though it seems big, you still conserve more resources than if you were to install full-fledged Wine on your computer. Also, if enough people want, I can create alternative versions with more apps inside. They'll have the same dependencies and, by putting them in the same wrapper, you can be more efficient on space.
    Is this app safe?
    Yes. I'll post a scan below if someone wants to scan it and send the results to me, but I garuntee that the app is 100% safe. I installed both Tibia and XenoSuite into the Wine wrapper directly from their respective sources.
    How do I load Scripts and Settings into XenoBot?
    The Wine wrapper automatically links in your "Documents" folder, so once you load up XenoSuite for the first time, it should create the appropriate folders. All you have to do is open your "Documents" folder and place Scripts and Settings in the right folders.



    Download



    Here's a DropBox link for the download:

    If it starts to become slow or stops working for some reason, let me know and I'll put it somewhere better.

    I'll also be posting a tutorial soon to reassure people about it's safety and so people learn how to do this (and similar things) themselves.

    Not that I use IOS X but I'm curious as to how this will affect the anti-piracy aspects of the software, where does registry entries etc go when you wrap it?

    FYI none of XB uses .NET framework, and if it is packed by your tool it is not necessary.

    The wrapper creates a "fake" registry (and there's a registry editing tool in a command interface that I deleted from the package so that others can't *easily* mess with it). I guess piracy would work as easily as on Windows, since you just wrap a Windows program, but changes to the registry won't be as easy, as I did what I could to keep people from messing with it.

    Oh, thanks for letting me know. I think it installs almost automatically so I'll fiddle with the options to get it just right
    That'll definitely help me lower the MB count.

    You should be fine by only having bare-bone Window stuff + visual c++ 2010 redist.

    Also, creation steps would be nice, as some people don't trust downloads.

    Looking good anyways

    Thanks again.

    Also, I plan on documenting my steps (hence the "~~Reserved for tutorial" post) either today or tomorrow. In the meantime, anyone can easily browse all of the files (and scan them, if they like) by simply showing package contents and browsing the filesystem.

    Alright, so I tried shaving off some MBs, but I only managed to get around 5 to go away. If anyone has any ideas that could potentially help reduce the size, please feel free to let me know.
