I am using Windows 7. I can't put the word -console at end of the end of the target box. The Windows 7 tells me that is a invaild name. I can't do it in the administrator mode or user mode. I can only run Halo CE in admin mode. Please help!

I have windows 7 and I can do it.
It's this "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe" -console -screenshot

Remember to have quotations around your directory path first BEFORE putting -console.

This is wrong: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe -console

This is correct: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe" -console

When executing with wine through terminal, just toss the -console and such after the exe path. You can always make an executable shell script to do it for you.

open terminal, type wine, then type the full file path to where Halo Custom Edition is, then after that, put -console.
And, since mac is a unix based system, capitals matter. Anyways, use spotlight, type terminal, write the word wine and then a space after it, then drag the HCE executable to that terminal window, then add a space and -console, then hit enter.

Just toss the stuff you typed in terminal into a text file, call it whatever.sh (there's other stuff you should add at the top, but linux doesn't care about it, so I doubt mac would)
Get into the properties, enable executable (if you cant find it in the normal properties, then use terminal, chmod +x YOUR.SH )

Hopefully, finder knows how to execute the file properly (it should know)
