Has anyone been able to get Sequence Storm, the rhythm racing game, working on mac with Crossover?

macOS and Mac Apps


Was wondering if anyone had managed to get Sequence Storm working on the mac through wine. I'm using Crossover. I managed, using VOCR, to install steam and then install Sequence Storm but it doesn't seem to work. It loads but then nothing happens. I've tried installing a different windows based steam game, a blind ledgend, which did seem to work.

I'm a bit vague about the whole wine concept so not sure if it should work or not.

Being a game based on the speed of tapping buttons VM machines don't work very well and I really can't be bothered to go through the agony of installing bootcamp which, when I last checked, was no longer accessible.... Though I might be able to get around that with VOCR now.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Look in the crossover database.
Not everything will work under crossover.
I will tell you though that I have successfully played both judgement day and pipe 2 blast chamber both of which are really fast reaction games, using a virtual machine (VMWare fusion tech preview under an m1 Mac is what I'm using), with a bluetooth keyboard to boot, using a USB audio driver. There were 3 layers where latency could've happened but I didn't experience any of it.
I'd give it a go if I were you. I don't have the bootcamp option because I'm on an M1 max Mac.

Yeah, it's not there, though the steam app is which I thought it ran under... In some strange way.

I stupidly got parallels on trial and forgot to cancel so I can give that a try. It's the whole remapping of keys that I also don't like. I very much liked the idea of stand alone, click a shortcut and play the game from mac OS... I suppose that is possible with VM Fusion though.

Interesting that the performance is good with the M1. I intend to get the new air when it is released with the M2... If I can afford it, of course, so might hold out until then and get a virtual machine up. As I say, VMs on intel just lack that tight reaction.

Thanks for your reply.

VMWare wouldn't be click a shortcut and go. You have to boot the virtual then boot the game like it's in windows. Honestly not my favorite solution but whatever.
God I miss bootcamp. I wish I could just do it that way.
Does sequence storm need any a11y mods to work correctly? I might try it within the VMWare tech preview.
