Sorry, but your script fails.  Even after setting up the variables and changing amd64 to arm65 (for mac) it still fails.


$ grep PLAY ~/.bashrc
export PLAYONLINUX="/Applications/PlayOnMac.app/Contents/Resources/playonlinux"
export PLAYONMAC="/Applications/PlayOnMac.app/Contents/Resources/playonlinux"

$ /tmp/epic-script.sh
mkdir: /plugins: Read-only file system

Why would you hardcode the POL_System_SetArch to "amd64" instead of running the `arch` command?

Here's what I get when I run it.

Oops I didn't realise that hitting enter posted comments. Whenever I hit 'try this update" I get the error message "Error in POL_Debug_Init
$TITLE must be set to use debugging API". Sorry if this is a really noob question! I am using the latest version of playonmac 4.4.1

If there's a blackscreen or flickering content, enable "Strict Draw Ordering". This solve it for me.

Note: with Wine 5.12 and 5.13, the launcher does crash after the login window.
