    I tried to use NTR Viewer on my computer using a virtual machine (Windows 7 with VMWare 8), but it doesn't work... (it connects successfully, but when I type the remote play command, it seems to work on my 3DS, but nothing appears in NTR viewer and I get an error in NTR Debugger after a few seconds).
    So, is there a port of NTR Viewer for Mac? Or a least a way to run it?
    Thanks!

    EDIT: Problem solved using Mono and Wine! (see here)

    Try Wine/Crossover?
    Edit: I had a look and the source doesn't seem to be available for NTRViewer. There's source for NTRDebugger and FakeProxy though.

    I didn't try, but I don't think it would work, since .NET is basically not working with Wine.

    It's possible to install .NET in Wine, it's worth a try at least.
    Or you could try running it in Mono.

    I tried running it with .NET in Wine, but as expected, it crashed :P
    Then I tried with Mono... And it works! Thanks a bunch! :D

    Did you have to do anything special to set it up with mono?

    What is Mono? I tried Googling and it showed something for building cocoa applications for OS X, is that something else entirely?

    NTR Viewer you run in wine (it is not a .NET app) and the Debugger you run with Mono.
    If you do this you can stream just fine on MAC

    Wine for NTRViewer (if that counts as something special) :)

    EDIT: Oh, I misread, sorry :sleep:
    No, I just used a standard mono install.

    mono is open source .net runtime for non windows os, if you want running .net application you can install mono alone or both with wine (if is needed).

    I'm telling you now - don't. use. wrappers. They are bad and mostly more effort than they are worth. Just install Windows as a virtual machine using Parallels.

    I've had heaps of experience with wrapping and I already have a Windows partition installed. I just hate having to swap between osx and Windows :P

    Also screw parallels. My laptop has proved parallels crack-proof for some reason :P that key crack never wants to overwrite for me...

    I use a cracked version of the latest business edition with no problems whatsoever. All you have to do is follow instructions.

    Your partition boots in another window just like any other program. You don't need to swap anything.

    Not to sound rude, but using Mono, Wine, XQuartz and the Terminal, waiting 5-10 minutes, opening a second terminal, dragging a program inside and then following the normal steps is really just overcomplicating things.

    Open Parallels, boot Windows, start NTR and boom you're done.

    Uhhh... I'm sorry, but that's not true at all :P

    Assuming you start completely from scratch:

    Parallels Method:
    1) Download Parallels
    2) Buy it(80$). Otherwise, you need to find a crack for it.
    3) Download Windows.
    4) Install it with Parallels
    5) Buy it (120$). Otherwise, you need to find a crack for it.
    6) Launch your Windows Virtual machine.
    7) Install the .NET Framework.
    8) Launch the App.

    Mono / Wine Method:

    1) Download Mono.
    2) Install it.
    3) Download Wine.
    4) Install it.
    5) Download XQuartz.
    6) Install it.
    7) Reboot your computer.
    8) Type a single command in a terminal prompt.
    9) Type another single command in a terminal prompt.


    Parallels method: Expensive (200$ if you don't want to use cracks and such), takes a long time (~5GB to download + Windows to install) and use a lot of ressources (at least 2GB of RAM + CPU use)
    Mono / Wine method: Free and legal, takes some time (but much less than Parallels, less than 1.5GB to download, and the programs don't take much time to install), and doesn't use much more ressources than the original apps.

    And actually, you need to wait 10 minutes only the first time you launch NTRDebugger, then it will open within 10 seconds :)

    for me, trying to use it in wine I think prompted me to install mono, so it did. then it worked just fine.

    install Wine with homebrew: http://brew.sh
    Code:
    brew install wine
    
    wine ntrclient.exe
    
    wine NTRViewer.exe
