Personal Notes:
So this is my very own port of Modern Warfare 3, i planned on uploading the wrapper yesterday but unfortunately i did not have the time to do so. I Spent a few hours getting to work at its full potential, at first i experienced issues such as the game crashing when trying to change resolutions and there was NO audio at all during gameplay. I fixed both issues. The audio was fixed by adding a few keys into the Direct 3D audio section of the user.reg file. The resolutions where fixed by using a mixture of 'game cracks' (which you should download in your own discretion) allowing it to function properly and also now allows the Spec ops to work too!

I know someone else posted a wrapper before me, this is my very own wrapper and i could see that the other wrapper doesnt have working audio, this one seems to work pretty well.


Game Description:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 begins exactly where Modern Warfare 2 left off. Although Task Force 141 have neutralised rogue General John Shepard, Makarov is still on the loose. Can 'Soap' MacTavish save the day?

Modern Warfare 3 is built for online multiplayer carnage, so join the fight online in fan favourite modes such as Search and Destroy or Team Deathmatch with the new Strike Packages. Rounding out Modern Warfare 3's explosive multiplayer package is the co-operative Spec-Ops mode, allowing you and a friend to team up for new co-op missions or take on waves of enemies in the all new Survival mode!

Port Info
Wineskin 8, Engine 1.3.25

Changing resolution/Fullscreen/Windowed mode:
The game will start up in windowed mode of a resolution of 1152x720. To enter 'Windowed mode', press keys ALT + CMD + A. OR - Right click the wrapper, navigate to wineskin.app, set screen options and change the virtual desktop to the resolution you wish. If you want the game to always start up in fullscreen, select the fullscreen option OR 'automatic' option in the set screen options window. If trying to change the resolution crashes for you when in fullscreen/automatic mode, i would recommend changing the resolution while in windowed mode then hitting alt + cmd + A to enter fullscreen.

Minimum System Requirements:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard / Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard / Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
- RAM: 2048 MB
- Video: GeForce 8600GT / AMD 4xxx Series Video Card or higher.
- 256mb Minimum VRAM.
- about 16 GB Hard Drive Space required

Known Issues:
- Multiplayer Has not yet been tested.
- For steam users, extra steps need to be taken (mentioned in the installation section).



For those who get the Shader Mode 3.0 error, do the following"

  • to fix the vertex shader model 3.0 problem, get my wrapper and:
  • show package contents
  • go into wineskin.app
  • click on advanced then tools
  • open winetricks
  • go down the the 'settings' section
  • run GLSL=Enabled



if that still doesnt fix it for you, try GLSL=Disabled (but enabled should work).
the reason you get this error is because you have an AMD graphics card. GLSL=Disabled boosts performance but only works on nvidia graphics cards.


4. Installation:
- To Install the game via wineskin.app

Gameplay on my mac! (this is just a test video, improvements may be made in the future):


My Specs:
Macbook 2009
4gb RAM
nVidia GeForce 9400m
10.6.8 snow leopard
Intel core 2 duo 2.26GHz

Game recorded on full resolution (for me)
High textures, others are low textures. (any FPS drops are likely to be because of my crappy macbook's graphics card.)


Thanks for reading this post, Enjoy the game!  :"":

  • - Textures fixed
  • - Sound Issue fixed ( by Adding a missing .dll and changing some lines in the user.reg)




Dan...... the man
Great job on the port!

Doesn't look like it's playable on you mac from the video (my opinion, I guess I'm a bit picky), but I guess that it because your machine is way below minimum reqs. But it ran better that I would have expected on a 9400m.

Btw, did you try the 1.3.24 or 1.3.30+ engines?
I have had a hard time with 1.3.25-1.3.29 to get decent sound, because they changed the sound drivers.
(sound didn't sound too bad here tho).

I haven't bought it yet, I think €60 is a bit too much :p And I still have several unfinished games.

I'm sure this will be a popular one :D
attempted it on 1.3.32 and the method had no effect. I understand why what you mean 'unplayable' but i'd just like to point out again that:

- This was before the latest crack was released, causing more lag due to texture issued
- My mac is, by far, not great for gaming... 2.26Ghz of madness :P
- i was recording this video on Medium everything at my native resolution while using screenflow (which sucks for recording games at their true frames per second)

So yeah... Thats basically my story about the gameplay :P
Hopefully others (with better macs) can upload some gameplays and possibly contribute to my channel? :O

And yeah, MW3 is a bit pricey on steam at the moment. They do sell the disc here for £10 cheaper (im pretty sure the disk just installs the game into steam anyway), i may invest in a copy sometime this month :)
Thanks for the port Dan.
Unfortunately, this is unplayable for me (q6600, 8gb ram, 9800gtx+ 512mb)

I had to use an earlier wine version to fix the sound 1.3.16. Now that's perfect.
However, I have graphical corruption all over the place. (in both the wrapper you made and the one i made myself).
I'm using the RELOADED version and the updated crack files.

Not sure what that is all about.

EDIT: Tried it in SL and it works perfectly without all that garbage in the screenshots!
So this is a Lion issue for me.
definitely not green for me...

crashes 95 percent of the time i try to change the video settings

also crashes about 60% of the time during or after loading.
@rynotheking14, is your card split into Intel HD 3000 and 6750M 1GB? if so, perhaps your using the intel HD? and perhaps your graphics settings may be too high?

It's most likely using the AMD, that's the problem though. When it comes to Wine, AMD and NVIDIA differ a lot with results.
For example: A game could work perfect on NVIDIA but have severe graphical corruption on AMD.
nooo the graphics are perfectly fine, its just i get a lot of those "unexpected error messages"

got that too with my old nvidia macbook pro!

Can i ask when or where abouts in the game? Its likely to be the Crack not functioning properly in your wrapper.

EDIT:

did you use the crack that comes with the wrapper? or the one within the reloaded ISO you downloaded?
What is the music at the beginning of the your video? It's AMAZING. Please share the source!

im not sure what this is about. this happens when i load it. ive done this a few times now and keep getting same error.
any help would be appreciated.
pretty sure thats got to do with how you installed the crack, i think you done it wrong..

This happened to me, it was because you REPLACED the "main" folder instead of adding the crack files.
Really fantastic port, with one or two issues. I'm on a 2010 MBP running SL with a Nvidia 330M, and the sound cuts in and out on me -- substantial sound lag in cutscenes followed by a wholesale sound cut-out when the first mission starts. However, the framerate (with no sound) is amazing. Here's hoping a sound fix gets released ... I seem to recall there was eventually one for Black Ops.
Cheers anyway for the work.
