Download Wrapper Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines (Steam Compatible) 1.1
There are two download links.
You'll only need the one marked "original", the second one is added if you have issues with the first.
The steam compatibility files are only added in the original, but can be transefered over to the update.
I used the Steam Version with the unofficial 7.7 patch from: http://www.patches-s..._bloodlines.php
I have added all files needed to get the Steam Version working and also added modified files to enable widescreen resolutions.
I have not tested retail/DVD version, but it is very likely to work, I would recommend adding the 7.7 patch to that as well.
thedoctor45 has previously made a very nice port of this game, but I doubt the older cider versions work on Lion. (I haven't tried tho)
edit: I got one report that patch 7.9 does NOT work, I tested with 7.7
edit: I have now finished the entire game on this wrapper. I've figured out some tweaks, so check out the "known issues" and the fix for water. I did play the first 15 hours on my MacBook Air and the last 25 on my hackintosh. The game runs flawless if configured correctly. It do however crash from time to time, but this is also a very know problem in windows. I've never crashed outside loading from one area to another, so hit quick save before you zone.
Gamespot.com Video review 7.7/10
IGN.com Review 8.4/10
Tested with Nvidia GTX 285 1GB and Intel HD.
It actually runs very well with Intel HD, been playing for an hour on my MBA with Intel HD and with highest settings (at 1440x900) it sustains about 40 FPS at all times!
OS: Mac OS X Mac OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard or Lion 10.7 or later.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Video: ATI, nVidia or Intel HD
Read the bundled read me files:
Also If you use steam install: (I do not think you actually need to go thru all this, but If you are gonna test if it works on your machine and you have win7 x64 before you move it to the wrapper.)

-Game sometimes crashes when you quit, just hit cmd+alt+esc if it hangs.
-On my MacBook Air there is missing some info on character create (can't see the skills).
Same with quest log. Opening the wrapper and use XCOnfig to Disable "FBO-BackBuffer" fixes it!
-The game crashes sometimes when loading to another area. Believe me, it does that in windows too. I've played the game for over 15 hours now. Sometimes it can crash twice in 15 mins, sometimes you can play for 3 hours with no crashes. Just hit "F9" to "quick save" before you zone.
If you have buggy water textures (most likely.. ), download this file and replace the C_drive/windows folder with Download 2
As usual, all media from my own port, this is how the game look on my MacBook Air!!
(took pix in both windowed and fullscreen mode)
