The above method works. Porting Kit is also useful to update the WineSkin version. WS9WineStaging2.16 works for me. Once Porting Kit is downloaded, use PixelArray's methods through 1,2,3,3 to download the newest wineskin. Then, go to the original osu!.app, right click-> Show Package Contents -> Double click on "Wineskin" -> Advanced -> Tools -> Change Engine Used -> Select "WS9WineStaging2.16" -> OK. Wait to complete. Finally, follow a0206021's method. This should work.

I found this AMAZING video: https://youtu.be/RDjWNWM3Y7w (1st solution 2:48-6:40)
You keep your Mac version, all your beatmaps and it is very short. He explains very well what happened.
This VERY SIMPLE solution worked for me after trying all these others long, boring and complicated solutions...

When I do it, it keeps running the osu!updater over and over. I'm using the alpha release from http://osuosx.tumblr.com/. Is there a reason to why this happens?

I've got osu! running on macOS High Sierra (10.13)

Sorry for the not-so-detailed instructions, but here's a basic guide...

If you have an osu!.app that doesn't work, don't delete it just yet.

1. Download and install PortingKit

2. In PortingKit, create a new wrapper called osu (File --> New Custom Port) on the WS9WineStaging2.16 engine and Mac Driver Window System.

3. When prompted to select an installer, click cancel, yes, then cancel again. (You'll get a warning, that's fine)

3. Once the wrapper is created, open the wrapper, go to Advanced --> Tools --> Winetricks and search for "dotnet40", click the checkmark and hit "run" This installs .NET Framework 4.0. (This will take a while)

4. Download the windows osu! installer from here.

5. Go back to the wrapper, and go to Install Software --> Choose Setup Executable and choose the osu!install.exe file.

6. Let osu! install into the default directory.

7. osu! will automatically open after it installs. Exit out of it.

8. For some reason, wineskin doesn't detect the launch exe, so you'll have to go to the wrapper --> Advanced --> Windows EXE and look for the osu!.exe file. (The directory should be /users/Wineskin/Local Settings/Application Data/osu!/osu!.exe)

9. Close out of the wrapper and open the osu.app itself.

10. Login and you should be able to play.

If you have an existing osu!.app and want to transfer your beatmaps and skins

1. Right click --> Show package contents of the old osu.app and go to drive_c and find the osu! folder where your beatmaps and skins folder are.

2. Copy the beatmaps and skins folder and go in drive_c to the osu! folder in your new osu.app then paste (and replace).

3. Delete your old osu.app

Note that osu may be laggier than it was in Sierra. However, it seems that all games seem to be running at lower fps since the update. Thanks Apple...

EDIT: Revised instructions
You are a legitimate genius.

You guys can use a VM (Virtual Machine).

For example buy (or crack) or try it for 14 days "Parralels Desktop" or something like this.
If you want follow these instructions.
1. Download (or crack) or try the newest version of "Parralels Desktop" (older versions don't work with Mac OS High Sierra)
->https://www.parallels.com/
2. Download the Windows installer with from the Windows-website.
-> https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/software-download/windows10ISO
3. Open "Parralels Desktop". It will ask you to install a OS.
4. Choose "install Windows oder another OS from DVD or Image file"
5. "Parralels Desktop" should display your OS-installers. If Windows isn't there then click on select and choose your .iso image.
6. Then click on continue and Windows will ask you wich OS settings you need.
7. If you have that finished Windows will install. This will take a few minutes. (this works faster if you have a SSD-disk)
8. You are done. Have Fun with Windows on Mac and working osu!.
If you have a low framerate in osu! then choose another skin that works fine. :)
For tablet users: Your VM detect your tablet as a mouse so it does weird things.
Simply move you mouse up to your menu bar and choose devices. And choose your tablet. (For me it was "Tablet Monitor")
If you want you can try the new osu!latzer (scroll down and choose "install.exe")
-> https://github.com/ppy/osu/releases

I hope I could help you. ;)
If you have any questions then reply on this tweet.

I found a way to work osu, but before you do this way, try the other techniques. This way is a bit tedious, but it gets the job done. There will be some unesserary steps, but the way I did it, it worked.

1. Download PortingKit (http://www.PortingKit.com)

2. Download both the recent mac and windows versions. (I'm not sure if you need to have the windows, but download it anyway.)

3.Do an show package contents on the mac version, remove the osu.exe, and place both the osuinstaller.exe and osu.exe on the desktop.

4.In PortingKit, create a new wrapper called osu (File --> New Custom Port) on the WS9WineStaging2.16 engine and Mac Driver Window System.

5. During the installation, change the location of the wrapper to the desktop. (Not needed, but will come in handy later)

6. When prompted to place an installer, put the osuinstaller.exe and when prompted to place an exe, put the osu.exe

7.Then with the wrapper, go to Winetricks and download dotnet40.

8.THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. Create a new folder on the desktop called osu or a name you will remember.

9.When it is downloaded, press place on PortingKit or the wrapper on the desktop.

10. ALSO IMPORTANT. When osu! is installing, at the bottom there should say "osu! is installing at..." Change the location to the folder you made on the desktop.

11. The game will start up, but it will need to install an update. Do this.

12. Wait for the game to download the pre- downloaded songs, then exited out.

13. Repeat steps 10-12. You will ALWAYS need to change the location to the folder you made and it will ALWAYS tell you it needs an update. If you don't get the update, then it will not allow you to see online scores and such.

14. In the folder is the files of osu!, this is the only way to download new songs. For some reason, the game will not allow you to exit full-screen. Put the new songs in there, and when you start up the game after changing the location, the songs should appear.

Now that should be the steps. It is a bit inconvenient, but it will work. Make sure you change the location ALWAYS because if you don't than it will go to its original location, the songs will not be there. Also, in the settings, if you want to fix the frame rate, go to the settings to removed dropped frames, but this is important. DO NOT PUT ON COMPATIBILITY MODE. It will crash the game, and you cannot open it again.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I found why my osu wasnt working (This is the second time this has happened and i believe it was the same reason why it didnt work the first time).
After playing with the wineskin stuff, it said i was missing something about a gecko (gecko from wine hq) after that, i clicked install as it was missing, it downloaded and osu opened up working like normal once the download finished. https://imgur.com/a/a1AkI that is my set screen options (if it will help anyone) and my engine is WS9Wine 2.22.

Sorry for the wait. I was a bit busy, but I finally got a video up. I should warn you about a couple of things:
There is one error I had. Once you extract the exe, MAKE SURE YOU DELETE THE MACBOOK REMAINS, AND CLEAR TRASH.

I also learned that try not to put too many songs into the song folder at once. For some reason, it doesn't pick up that songs are in the folder. I suggest about 20-30 at a time.

Otherwise It should work.

Osu works on HIgh Sierra as longest you know what to do about it. It took me almost 3 months now to fix it after the damn update. Just Download and install PortingKit

GUYS I HAVE FOUND A PROPER FIX FOR OSU ON HIGH SIERRA!!! Found by accident once I had already given up trying to get Osu to work on HS but follow the steps on this YouTube video and it works. Apparently High Sierra stops Wineskin from acknowledging your GPU and this tricks it into doing so.

Thanks god for this Spanish dude
