    Use Wine. It allows most Windows apps to be run under Linux or OS X. Or use a virtual machine.

    No. My dad would NEVER let me install wine on his Mac Pro. And also no again because I am not allowed to use Paralells Desktop on his computer.

    Hmmmm... You're kinda stuck there since almost all of the dev tools are for Windows (though I know Mac id awesome :D I have a 700MHz G4 running Tiger (10.4.11) that still works and I use often).

    The only software I know of that would meet your needs is DS Game Maker, but that's a Windows tool.

    Either:
    a) get your dad to allow you to setup a virtual machine in Parallels or VMWare Player
    or b) get your dad to let you install Wine & Mono (Mono is a version of the Windows .NET framework for Mac. Many programs, including DS Game Maker require this framework)
    or c) just code the game from scratch in C and/or C++. The compiler, at least, /is/ available for Mac!

    Alternatively, you could use a Windows machine.

    Also, nice name. You go on the CBBC website?

    I am eventually gonna get my own computer in my bedroom, which means i might be able to install windows XP on boot camp someday.
    Also, my name is either T0aMasta32423 or the full version of FGC0000, which is FragrantGingerCalamari. (i only use T0aMasta32423 on MCPE though)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The school i go to is a fancy online one.
    I'm in 4th grade.
    Also, i am not actually 13.
    I am 10 years old.

    Don't attack this guy just because he's young. For his age he seems to know a lot of technical information which a lot someone can ask a 10 year old. I admire his desire to learn, it reminds me of my younger self.

    Most tools on this forum are windows only. As a circumvention (linuxmasterrace user here) you can try to run Windows instead.

    Bootcamp would be the easiest solution to do that, but you said that your dad will flip if you do that so here are two other options:

    QEMU/Virtuabox:
    Pros:
    • No need to reboot, suprisingly easy once running.
    Cons:
    • Needs diskspace (although it can be circumvented by using the qcow2 format)
    • Needs a moderately powerful computer. (you're running another OS in your current one)
    • Difficult to set up.

    Wine(skin):
    Pros:
    • Easy to set up.
    • Smaller than a virtual machine.
    Cons:
    • Mixed results, typically a hit or miss on the thing you're trying to run. (WineHQ can give you existing results).
    • dotnet requires you to fiddle around with winetricks.
    Both of these require an Intel processor to run (not that I know of any Macs that still run on a PowerPC processor aside from the backup computer in my attic).

    Or to get prepared for using Linux. I had a Mac (now it's my backup PC), and having Terminal knowledge, no matter how basic it is, will help tremendously when running Linux.

    @FragrantGingerCalamari I recommend you put @nahimgood on your ignore list.
    That way you will save us mortals that don't give a fuck from the useless ping pong of childish insults between the two of you.

    That said, you can for sure install wine without leaving any trace that would be plain obvious to see.
    If you plan to install a game creation tool anyway, why wouldn't you install wine?
    Just install brew, and use it from the terminal to install wine. Then use wine from the terminal.
    To install brew, just run the following on the terminal:
    /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

    Then to install wine:
    brew install wine

    Then to run your windows program
    wine yourprogram.exe

    Then, profit. (if it happened to be compatible out of the box, if not your will have to check around how to make it run)
