    I'm wanting to start making maps on my Macbook and I found a thread about how to run it through Wineskin. I have downloaded Wineskin and have attempted to find the Hammer.bat file/Hammer.exe file so I could run it, but when I checked the TF2 files, the hammer.bat/hammer.exe files are nowhere to be found.

    Can anyone help?

    Steam can ship platform specific binaries so it will use .dylib instead of dll for the game for example, same thing with hammer.exe this is not included with the mac version of hammer because it isn't supported on mac. I personally have no experience using hammer on a mac but the only way to get hammer.exe is probably by getting the windows version of the sdk. This could probably be done by running running the windows version of steam through wine, and downloading the sdk using that to get hammer.exe.

    wine can be used to port .exe to mac environment. I dont recommend mapping on mac but if it is what you have then go for it
