Unable to launch on Mac OS with Wineskin

I am able to launch Fallout 2 and play normally with Wineskin wrapper on Mac OS.
However with the 1.5 zip archive extracted and wrapper redirected to launch fores.exe I get to a splash screen that says 'Loading" and then the screen seems to change the resolution an crashes.
I tried to force wrapper to use different resolutions and both full-screen and windowed mode but with no luck.

Mac OS X High Sierra.
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB
Wineskin Winery Engine WS9Wine2.16
Wrapper Version Wineskin-2.6.2

Re: Unable to launch on Mac OS with Wineskin

I know some people were able to run the game with Wine (see here) but since non of us from Resurrection team has any experience with Mac, I can't help you with that much.
I would guess that you're missing DirectX 9 libraries. I don't know how you can solve that on Mac. Maybe try to run Fallout 2\Resurrection\fores_config.exe and try to set different graphic mode there. Maybe "Original - 8 bit" could work for you.
