I just thought I'd drop in to let people know about a fix I found while I was having issues using Wine to use MUSHClient on Mac.

I am using OSX Mojave version 10.14.6. I also used Wineskin Winery as I always do when creating Wine wrappers. Multiple times when I tried to run the client after setting up the wrapper and either giving the wineskin an installation exe OR placing an unzipped folder into the wrapper, I got a page fault. I couldn't get it to run, and I couldn't find anything about how to fix it online, despite many reports that MUSHClient should run fine in Wine.

The fix was to use an earlier engine version. Specifically, I used WS8Wine1.1.5. WS9Wine2.22 and 2.21 didn't work, and neither did WS9WineStaging2.16. I saw somewhere that the client worked on 1.0.1, so I tried using as early a version as I thought appropriate, and it works fine now. Thought I'd post this so someone else having this problem later can find it.

Those versions of Wine are suuuuuuuuper old though. These days I don't bother with creating wrappers. I just install the latest official macOS Wine Staging build from https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html which makes all windows exe's runnable without any extra work or per-app specialization.
