Commader Genius on MacOS

Post by gerstrong »

How about this?

Tried to built it on MacOS and at least it runs, but there are a lot of flaws. I might get a chance to fix those and finally create a MacOS Version of CG.

This is an official build for MacOS:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonek ... p/download

Try it out! It worked on my virtual machine but unfortunately not that well. Maybe you have better luck. It might run better on a real Mac Machine. Maybe I buy one later though I'm not a big fan of Apple Computers.

Since you can package EXE files into Windows Store (not fully UWP?) apps now, why not upload it to the Windows Store as well? Wouldn't require maintaining a separate build, just uploading.

Not sure how this works, but maintaining different build is more work than I really want to do. So I still am looking for maintainer, but no one seems to be interested so far...

You should just be able to upload your Windows build to the Store using the Desktop App Converter.
