## Dwarf Fortress 0.34.11 and Dwarf Therapist on Mountain Lion
-There are varies ways to do it. The easy one is to download the Mac version on the [download page](http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/). The problem with that method is that Dwarf Therapist, an indispensable tool for playing Dwarf Fortress, won't work with the lates version. So The best way to play it is via wine, that won't make it any worse and the game will run fine without requiring configuration tweaking, something that you have to do even with the Mac version. By the way, if you download the Mac version, don't forget to change `PRINT_MODE: 2D` to `PRINT_MODE: STANDARD`, and `TRUETYPE: YES` to `TRUETYPE: NO`, in `data/init.txt`.

Alternatively, you may install it using the [WineBottler](http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/). For instructions see it [here](http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2012:Utilities#Dwarf_Therapist_and_Dwarf_Fortress_on_Mac_using_Wine).
-I had some problems with the WineBottler and, as being a developer, I prefer to use the command line tool. This tutorial assumes you know how to use a terminal for simple operations. And it will be easier if you already have homebrew installed.

-A pro tip before you start: if you know how to use git, creat a git repository the first time you extract the Dwarf Fortress directory, and commit each time you merge another folders with it. Will make your life a lot easier if something goes wrong.

It can make your life a lot easier if something goes wrong, and it's a nice way to keep the game files changes.
1. Homebrew. If you already have it skip to step 2.

2. Mountain lion doesn't ship with X11, so you need to download Quartz from [here](http://xquartz.macosforge.org/downloads/SL/XQuartz-2.7.4.dmg).
3. Wine, winetricks and mono.
- brew install wine
- brew install winetricks
- winetricks mono210
+ brew install wine
+ brew install winetricks
+ winetricks mono210
4. Download Dwarf Fortress windows version from [here](http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/df_34_11_win.zip). Unzip it, and copy it to `~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files`. This will be the Dwarf Fortress Directory.
5. Grab Dwarf Therapist from [here](https://code.google.com/p/dwarftherapist/downloads/detail?name=DwarfTherapist-0.6.12.zip&can=2&q=). Unzip it, and copy it to `~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files`.
