Yeah, personally I prefer a good whiskey or cider to wine.

RA2 For Mac
Uses wine, not a mac port
sh** my bad, i just kinda ultra skimmed the thread

anyways, i don't know why you would want to run it on an xbox when you could just connect an xbox controller or something similar to your pc and play ra2 with it....

I don't think you can bind robot controls to controller inputs, at least not without a workaround.

All the bots in RWRA2 are wired with controller inputs, so I assume you don't need  a workaround

Then I reckon it's time for me to throw away my decrepit gamepad.

RA2 For Mac
Uses wine, not a mac port

Depends how much you want to split hairs here, it has Wine blended into to run as a stand alone application, meaning the end user doesnt actually have to install or download wine itself.. I just used Wines coding instead of doing it myself  :mrgreen:

But its sure no Xbox port..

Well i wanted to do this just for fun.. you know, to be able to see it run on xbox

...when you could just connect an xbox controller or something similar to your pc and play ra2 with it....
I have a sh**ty MS controller.. and if i wanted to use my xbox controller.. i would have to make DIY wiring (as i am xbox classic controller with the weird port)

Pretty cool, but I don't think it would work on the xbox. Even if it did, how are you gonna navigate the menus without a mouse?

I havent a clue when it comes to xbox, never owned one in my life lol

PS4 has a trackpad on its controllers and support for a usb mouse. but in that same breath you can also buy a wireless adaptor from sony to use a ps4 controller on your PC / Mac.. which is a much simpler task than coding a new port lol

I'm assuming that kix is talking about the original fat xbox, on which you could install Gentoo since it was so similar to a normal PC components wise. The original xbox doesn't have USB ports, as it uses a proprietary connector for its controllers.

Yeah.. im using that fat xbox.. I did forgot to install gentoo.. but it will be a tough one cuz i cant FTP it.. my Ethernet port is non functional as the latest W10 update screwed it up. But the good thing is that i can install it from DVD as i just fixed the dvd reader (the litle ****er had its laser broken)
also i remember that you could make an usb port on it..
