Things ya gonna need for this tutorial..

You will need…

-Your Apple Mac PC.
-Sonic Mania MAC Already Installed (Please see the ‘INSTALLATION’ tab above if you haven’t installed the game it self yet!)

Step 1: Extract the folder out of the ManiaModStudio zip file and the folder out of your mod’s zip file.

Step 2: Go to your Sonic Mania MAC installed app. Now right click on it – show package contents. Now you will see two folders: Contents, drive_c, and the Wineskin app. We will use that drive_c folder in the next step.

Step 3: Move the ManiaModStudio folder to the inside of the Sonic Mania MAC app. Inside the Sonic Mania MAC app itself, move that ManiaModStudio folder to the “drive_c-Program Files-Sonic Mania folder. When your done, there will also be a file in the Sonic Mania folder called “data.rsdk.” Make a backup of it by copying it to somewhere else in case you don’t want to use mods anymore, then you can just replace the old data file with the modded one.

Step 4: Move your mod’s folder to “drive_c-Program Files-Sonic Mania” and make a new folder inside that folder. Name it “mods,” then place YOUR mod’s folder inside the “mods” folder.

Step 7: Now click on “Test Run.”

Step 8: It will take you to the Mania Mod Studio app. Select “File,” then click “Mania Path,” and navigate to “My Computer-C:-Program Files-Sonic Mania then click on “SonicMania.exe.”

Step 8: Now click “Add.” Now navigate to “mods-(YOUR MOD FOLDER’S NAME HERE) then click on “YOUR MODS NAME HERE.ini and click “Open.”

Step 9: It will say “Mania Mod Loader data found.” Click ok.

Step 10: Now check all the boxes that are next to your mod’s name.

Step 11: Now click “Apply.” It will now take about 5-10 minutes to do it’s thing!

Step 12: After everything has completed, It will say “Mods successfully applied.” Click ok, then click on the X symbol (The Windows X symbol) in the top right corner and it will exit everything.

Step 13: Now it will go back to Wineskin and say “Test Run Complete!” Click Cancel.
