I am a Mac user.
I use NESmaker in a Windows10 virtual machine running with Parallel Desktop on my MacOS.
(before that I was using a Windows7 vm under Virtualbox on my MacOS)
You can also use a dual boot on your Mac (windows / MacOS) using Boot Camp (a native tool, in the utilities of MacOS).
Very intersting !It seems like right now NESMaker working under MACos totally FINE!
You need a special version of wine: wine32to64 AKA wine-crossover.
Here the commands I did enter:
brew install --cask --no-quarantine gcenx/wine/wine-crossover
brew install --formula gcenx/wine/winetricks
winetricks install dotnet471
IMPORTANT: winecfg -> I did choose windows 10, before installing dotnet, and changed Z: disk to /Users/myuser/
After that NESMaker was launched and worked. All tabs, palettes, compile and test etc. works for me
Also I did install mono before dotnet471, but do not know if this was needed.

Edit: for adding the file associations (like .asm) I created a git repository with script:
Adds a file associations for wine from macOS. Contribute to crowoverseer/wine-file-associations development by creating an account on GitHub.github.com
Done:Very intersting !
Could you make a post with a step-by-step illustrated guide for installing/setting up/using Wine on macOS?
Did not tried, because have no linux installed. If there is a wine-crossover version for linux, so that is possible. Filetype registry script should work under linux too.Would there be any way to use this in WINE for Linux? I've always wanted to convert my old Acer into a Linux machine but, due to my Steam games and the prospect of using NESMaker, I've been kind of on the fence about it.
bit late to the party....but yes, wine is available on linux!Would there be any way to use this in WINE for Linux? I've always wanted to convert my old Acer into a Linux machine but, due to my Steam games and the prospect of using NESMaker, I've been kind of on the fence about it.
