This game was long overdue for an update and pained me especially hard because my backup for the wrapper was lost when MegaUpload was taken down. So with a bit of regret I have to admit that I was unable to recreate what I had done in older versions of wine with Fallout 3. Ideally this would have been updated to the newly released stable build 1.4, and in fact I was able to start the game without issues but it's unplayable due to mouse functions not working properly. So for now we are at a crossroads, waiting for either a patch for Wine or a fix for Wineskin (Wineskin fix is preferable due to ease of not having to patch Wine from source)
So go ahead and download this WS8 updated wrapper. I used the currently available F3 wrapper by Thanoulas and modified it quite a bit. I was getting a constant crash when trying to open the door to Vault 101 Atrium. After some rigging around with the registry and installing a couple of winetricks I was able to get this working like a charm on my system.
Currently installed engine is WS8DZWine1.3.12d, I'm not sure exactly what Wine tricks Thanoulas installed in the wrapper but the mouse no longer works with my WS8Wine1.3.18_F3 so I left his patched engine in there which works well (but neither as well as 1.4 would) If for some reason you change the engine of the wrapper you can find an archived copy of the Wineskin engine in the Contents folder of the wrapper (Right click and choose "Show package contents") Extract the engine and place it in the Contents > Frameworks folder.
Thanks to Thanoulas for using a file hoster other than MegaUpload when uploading his files
Thanks to clocknova for making my old (highly modified) wrapper available to me for testing
Testing System Specifications:
Mac OS X 10.6.8
128 MB VRAM
-Fixed - The movie now plays all the way through without any issues
- Fixed - Although there is a still a minimal drop in frame rate it's not nearly as appearant as it was in previous wrappers.
- Fixed - This setting was used to improve frame rate while using VATS although there was an implemented fix for this in Wine 1.3.4, changed setting to default orm=fbo
Download the wrapper from the first link in the list above
Install your own copy of Fallout 3 (GOTY or not, it doesn't matter)
Extract the wrapper from the archive
Right click on the wrapper and choose 'Show Package Contents"
Navigate to Contents > Resources > drive_c > Program Files > Bethesda Softworks > Fallout 3
Now navigate to your installed version
drag and drop the contents of the Fallout 3 install folder (atimgpud.dll to VeryHigh.ini) into the open folder of the wrapper
close the windows out and double click the Fallout 3.app to launch the game.
On first launch the Fallout Launcher should appear and give you a message that it is going to set system settings based on your rig. Click OK and allow it to do this. Now click on the options and reset the settings to an appropriate level for enjoyable gameplay. Example X1600 w/ 128MB vRAM gets set at medium, although this looks great performance takes a hit, in lowering the specs to low the performance is spot on. Higher end systems ned not worry about this step.
The Wineskin installer can be used to install the game but it may change the System.reg entries and the executable pathway may require to be changed.
