This will work on the newer Silicon Macs as well (tested), but you will most likely experience more crashes than running through Crossover. It is recommended that you check out the Crossover guide instead, but you are more than welcome to use this method, too, if Crossover somehow doesn't work for you or you do not want to use it.

Requirements:
1. Install Homebrew at https://brew.sh
2. Install homebrew-wine using the following command in the Terminal app (Applications > Utilities > Terminal)
Code:
brew install --cask --no-quarantine gcenx/wine/wine-crossover

3. Create a bare WINE prefix using the following command in the Terminal app
Code:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

4. Create a folder for Windia anywhere on your system
5. Download the Windia Patcher from https://windia.me/download and put it in your Windia folder
6. Double click the Windia Patcher to run and patch your files

How to run:
1. Double click the Patcher in your Windia folder through Finder
2. Click Install/update files to patch
3. Click Launch game
4. Have fun Mapling!

Thanks for this guide. Starting from next update, you will be able to run the game directly through the patcher without using the --osx switch.

What does nonflicker option do? Would it help with gfx?



wine-crossover supports both 32-bit and 64-bit now. It is compatible with your


existing 32-bit wine prefix, but it will now default to 64-bit when you


create a new wine prefix. The architecture can be selected using the


WINEARCH environment variable which can be set to either win32 or


win64.





To create a new pure 32-bit prefix, you can run:


$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg


See the Wine FAQ for details: https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Wineprefixes





To enable noflicker set the following registry key in your prefix:


[HKCU\Software\Wine\Mac Driver]


"ForceOpenGLBackingStore"="y"

It seems like this guide is routing installation of wine 6.0.

There is wine 7.0 available. Any reason towards why this guide is not suggesting wine 7.0?

I wrote this in a way that would be easily compatible for both Intel and M1 Macs, but I assume you can replace the cask for Intel Macs to be gcenx/wine/wine-stable-legacy if you want to run on Wine 7.0. In my testing, this guide should work on Intel Macs, but if there's issues that I didn't catch, perhaps running on 7.0 would alleviate these.
