I'm following a reddit guide of how to play SWTOR on macos with wine. I keep getting stuck on creating a virtual, 32-bit drive with 2.20 staging like the guide says to do. All it says is please wait while a virtual drive is created, and it never finishes. Any help to getting to past this loop is welcome. I'm on the latest version of macos mojave.

URL to the 'reddit guide' please ?

 

You're doing a manual installation. I suggest you to later have a look to our script for 'Star Wars: The Old Republic' (I'm not sure it still work, feedbacks are welcome).

Please tell me your PlayOnMac version and your OS version.

 

A copy of the log may be useful too ( Tools -> PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac debugger ).

I can click cancel when its stuck trying to create a virtual drive, and it shows the virtual drive above default. When I try and click configure wine or another option under the wine tab, the icon for the opened window shows in the dock, but the window is invisible.

I sometimes have this kind of issue (with POL and misc scripts), I cancel the script then restart it.  Is it what you did ?

I am having the same problem described by the original post. Any ideas would be appreciated. I'm a bit of a newbie to this sort of stuff.
