    Hey Kokopod,

    I had a similar problem and got it to run; here's what I did.
    I deleted everything (the .zip file and the Stardew Valley icon with the chicken), and then I did steps 1-5 of the wrapper preparation. Accept and install whatever pops up (I don't remember if anything pops up for that step). Do not close out of the window that runs those files.
    Then select and run only msxml3. It should open a Finder window (don't close it) and send you to a website to download a file. Download the file, then open a new Finder window (by right clicking on Finder) and move that file from "Downloads" to the folder it opened up for you (if it doesn't open it up for you, look through these forums; I think someone posted how to command that folder to open up). Then run it again; if anything pops up, install it (I don't remember if anything pops up when you hit run again). Finally, run it AGAIN. And it should say something about skipping it because it already downloaded it (or some similar phrase).
    Then select and run only dotnet40 next; accept and install whatever pops up. Run it again, and it should say something about skipping it because it already downloaded it.
    Then select and run only xna40; accept and install whatever pops up. I vaguely remember this one being the one that takes longer to install? Anyway, run it again, and it might have you install something else. I think it said something about skipping it because it already downloaded it the third time I ran it.

    Then start the "To install using Steam" instructions. When you hit "play," it finally should have error messages for you. Hit "Ok" for the first one, and then install whatever it tells you to. I think it was the xna installer thing again. I don't remember if it didn't play after working through the error and installer, but it certainly worked the second time I hit play.

    Tl;dr: always accept and install whatever it tells you to; run msxml3 first on its own, then run dotnet40 on its own, then run xna40 on its own; and check that those ones are installed by running them until it says they skipped it because it's already downloaded it.

    I hope this helps, but if it doesn't, I can't help you beyond what I just told you. Someone with more technological expertise will have to help you if you don't have the exact same problem I did lol. Good luck!

        Hey all,
        I'm a forum virgin so please forgive me. But I had a few questions.
        I can't wait to sink many hours into this game, but I have a mac. I've looked around but:

        1) is there any actual, really real, no-b.s., official word of when a mac version will be available if at all? How about PSN?
        2) If not, I'm going to attempt the Wineskin wrapper, do gamepads/controllers work with a wineskinned mac version?
        3) If an xbox 360 controller does work, does it have to be tethered to the computer somehow, or will it be wireless?

        Thanks for any help you can provide.

          How to update stardew valley then on GOG without losing my game file?

            Thank you so much @DandoCalrissian. Hi-five and awesome job!
            I got Stardew Valley working smoothly on Mac OS 10.10.5 with Steam.
            Tried running it earlier on VMWare Fusion / Windows but couldn't get it to work.
            Your solution worked great every step of the way! Now time to play :D

              Thanks so much for all your hard work! The game is currently running like a dream on my mac. My farming fantasies are fulfilled <3 Is there anyway of installing mods? Thanks again

                I just made an account here because I am very curious on Stardew Valley running on Mac!
                I never used Wine before, so this will be my first attempt.

                I hope there will be answers for the following questions (recapping from above posts):
                1. [answered] How to update using GoG version?
                2. How to install mod? (I heard there is this awesome fishing mod that makes life way easier!)
                3. [answered] My own question: How do I access my savefiles (for backup purpose) if I play using Wine wrapper?

                Thank you :)

                Just found the answer to my 1st and 3rd question from another page in this thread:
                Confirming that running the updated GOG installer in the configured Wineskin updated the game in place as you'd expect.
                It's worth reminding everyone to grab a copy of your save files from [WHEREYOURAPPIS]/Contents/Resources/drive_c/users/Wineskin/Application Data/StardewValley to be safe
                Thank you for the poster @bassguy !

                  Thank you for this!!
                  I've been wanting to play the game for ages and yesterday I found everything here, successfully installed and ran smoothle. Played the game happily for 2 hours, went to bed, and now that I'm attempting to play it again I'm getting problems with the steam client. It wants to run an update for stardew valley but nothing is properly connecting and stalling at every window, running but never completing any loading.
                  I ran Mac steam to see if it was a problem with all versions, but it's running fine.
                  Tried reinstalling the windows steam, but it didn't fix anything.
                  The game is stuck in update queue with no progress before mentioning something about connectivity errors.
                  Any ideas?

                    It would be nice to have a comprehensive guide on how to install and run mods- I downloaded the installer for .NET 4.2.5 and have no idea how to run it- it just opens a Wine window when clicked. I really want to be able to run mods, and it seems like it's possible, so help would be nice!

                    EDIT: Personal update on how my attempts have been going- just installing the new .NET and SMAPI doesn't work, even when following all the instructions currently out there. (Opening the game with SMAPI gives an error message and a crash.) Doing a clean reinstall and installing dotnet35sp1 instead of dotnet20sp2 crashes winetricks every time without fail- the installation gets stuck and just breaks after a point. I'm honestly just stuck at this point.

                        I very much appreciate this forum, I dearly have been wanting to play this game, but I am having the same issue as kokopod. Though reading more in this forum I found Friscara's solution, but then more issues arose as a result:

                        I went back and specifically ran "msxml3" in which it opened my finder and a window to download a file, I downloaded said file and dragged it into the open folder in the finder. I did close the window as I saw no further use for it to be open after the download. Then I specifically went back to run "dotnet40", but instead of being prompted to install anything, it says: "The program Setup.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." with a description of, "This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check the Application Database for tips about running this application." This comes up as well when running specifically xna40 too.

                        I have checked, and I still cannot actually "play" the game.

                        Can I get some help on this? I have never used Wine before and have had little luck in the past, so this is very disheartening to me. Thank you very much for even making this forum.

                          I done all the steps correctly and have Steam installed however whenever I try to connect, it says that theres no internet connection (which there is). Neither of my Steam programs work until I uninstall the windows version and everything is fine again.

                          Anyone else had this issue?

                            Okay so honestly it worked PERFECTLY for me! My only question now is that - Is there away to open the files that allow me to put mods in on mac with the wrapper?

                              You can open the files just fine- right click the wrapper and click show package contents. The Stardew Valley install is in the Program Files folder, under Steam/steamapps/common. Portrait mods and the like work, but it looks like nobody's been able to get SMAPI running- the game crashed every time when I tried to.

                                Okay, so I'm totally new to Wineskin and all this - but desperate to play on my Mac! I cannot for the life of me get dotnet40 installed in WineTricks. I get the following error message and it stops loading. If I try to cancel it doesn't work - I end up needing to Force quit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

                                dotnet40 does not yet fully work or install on wine. Caveat emptor.

                                  Hey! I quickly skimmed through these replies and wanted to see if anyone had the same problem as me.

                                  The game worked fine the first time, and, don't get me wrong, I was extremely appreciative. But when I click on it the next day to open it, the game won't open. I click on the wrapper, enter the special code near Windows EXE and whatnot and Test Run, but it'll always pop up saying that Wineskin had to close because of a problem. If I try it a second time, it'll say it can't Test Run because it's already running.

                                  I'm sorry if this post has already been made - I was just wondering if anyone could quickly give me any help? Anything is appreciated. Thanks!

                                      Can you describe how you got it to work? Because that was the workaround I was following and I could not get it to work for the life of me.

                                        Sure! I'm like...90% certain I remember what I did? :rofl:

                                        Btw, I recommend backing up your save files and starting from scratch. I left my original, non-SMAPI install in place while trying to install a new, SMAPI-compatible version, and it turned into some sort of mishmashed chaos that ignored my mods and tried to use old save files. It's all fine now, but I spent an extra half hour sorting things out.

                                        1. Follow the first page instructions for preparing the wrapper, but don't run the DLLs they list.
                                        2. Instead, run these DLLs in this order:
                                        • msxml3
                                        • d3dx10
                                          (these can all go together, apparently?)
                                        • dotnet35sp1 (note that installation dialog automatically minimized to menu bar during the installation. just double click on the icon to bring it back)
                                        • dotnet40
                                        • xna40
                                        3. Close Winetricks and open Config Utility. At the bottom of the Applications tab, there's a dropdown to select a Windows version. Choose Windows7, and close Config Utility. Go back to the Configuration tab of Wineskin.
                                        4. Download the .NET 4.5.2 offline installer
                                        5. In Wineskin, click Install Software, then Choose Setup Executable. Install the .NET 4.5.2. installer.
                                        6. Go back to Config Utility, and change your Windows version back to Windows XP. Keep Wineskin open - you'll need it one more time.
                                        7. Follow the first page instructions for installing Steam and Stardew Valley.
                                        8. Download SMAPI.
                                        9. Place all SMAPI files in the same folder as Stardew Valley.exe
                                        10. Go back to Wineskin. Next to Windows EXE, enter the location of your StardewModdingAPI.exe, or click browse and find it.
                                        11. Check the box next to Use Start.exe.
                                        12. Click Test Run and make sure the game pulls up properly.
                                        13. That should be it? Go ahead and close out of everything. Now you should be able to double click the wineskin Stardew Valley icon to start playing.
