Wineskin 2.0 RC2 has been released WS6 engines updates and Multiple Monitors support coming

Wineskin wrapper 2.0 RC2 along with WS6 engines are now up and available in Wineskin Winery 1.0 RC1. The Manual should have all current info correctly.

RC1 wrappers will not work right with WS6 engines... I also suggest not using WS5 engines in RC2
RC1 wrappers should be able to update, and change engines fine using once you have downloaded them in Wineskin Winery.

Biggest changes...
True fullscreen support for gaming using Display Capturing, with a toggle to get in and out (Cmd+Opt+A)
Fixes for file associations, so you can open files with wrappers from Finder correctly even if the wrapper was already running.

Winetricks was updated to the Winetricks-alpha builds. Do not use the Update Winetricks button for now, or it will break Winetricks and you’ll need to replace from a fresh wrapper to fix it.
WS6, Multiple Monitors...
I’ve had multiple inquiries about multi-monitor problems with WS6 engine bases.
I have this problem fixed in WineskinX11 (Xquartz for Wineskin) and am working on a few different related things... This will bump the current engine base up to WS7, where.. unless there is another major problem found, should be the last update to the engine base for a long while... which will help all the RCs get to release status faster!

I do not know when I will have WS7 stuff up, just depends how the changes and testing goes.
When WS7 is out, fullscreen gaming and handling multiple monitors should work great! Think of WS6 as a WS7beta :-)

I do not plan on having quick replacement changes like this once Wineskin 2.0 is at a release version.
