DizzyAGE on MAC OS X

As a mac user for many years it has been a major pain in the ass that i could only play dizzyage games in a virtual machine, one of the reasons i don't do much on dizzyage these days. But that has all changed thanks to this nifty piece of software....

once installed i just need to click on the dizzy.exe in finder and i can play any dizzyage game without the need for a virtual machine or a copy of windows. So far every game i've tried has worked first time with no problems.

The only issue is that it requires the x11 window system to be installed but this is installed as default on OS X.

While it might not be the best solution, its the next best thing to a native mac port.

If you have problems loading a game ensure that in the dizzy.ini file that api is set to 0 .

I linked this thread onto our Facebook page, and I just read a comment from a Mac user saying that He's getting a blank screen.

yes it is possible i did the updates to the remakes on my mac this week.

All the tools work like the editor/pak and even the setup program
