RB3D on a Mac

Resources for Red Baron 3D on a Mac


While links and pages to the wonderful late 1990s' flight sim Red Baron 3D are slowly disappearing from the internet, this simple site will serve as a hub for all things related to the sim. The focus is on how to get Red Baron 3D running on modern computers, with emphasis on how to load the game into WineSkin wrappers suitable for Macs (Snow Leopard or later). The free version of Red Baron II (in German) is still available on the internet and can be downloaded, patched to Red Baron 3D, and then modified further using remaining resources that are available (some of which are also hosted here under the "Repository" section on the next page of this site). Helpful links are located under the "Links" section found immediately below and should be followed in the order listed for a proper install of the game.


Happy flying!,
