Dragon Age: Origins (previously known as Dragon Age) is a single-player third-person role-playing fantasy game developed by BioWare. The game was released on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 3, 2009 in North America, November 5, 2009 in Australia, and November 6, 2009 in Europe. The PS3 version was planned to be released later in November, but BioWare has said they have been able to get the PS3 version to "our high standard of quality". A digital download version for the Mac was also released on December 21, 2009.
Dragon Age: Origins is a single-player only game that BioWare co-CEO Ray Muzyka describes as a "spiritual successor" to the Baldur's Gate series, though it is not based on Dungeons & Dragons rules or the Forgotten Realms setting. It utilizes a new BioWare-developed engine named Eclipse. There is also a toolset for creation of fan-made content available for free download.

Notes
This version is meant for steam owners of Dragon Age Origins to play it on mac. It is possible to make it run with retail i guess, more info below. (Confirmed that it does work with retail PC version too)

I've used the original Dragon Age Origins wrapper for Mac and cross built a custom engine with the new updated Dragon Age Origins version.
Thanks a lot to Waves to giving me the new wrapper so i could rebuilt it to use for steam version!

This will basically transform your legal Steam Windows copy into the retail Mac version.
Why they haven't added mac version to steam is for me a mystery.
Achievements and profile upload to social.bioware.com works.

Info on DLC:
Getting DLC can be a lot of work. The best it to copy the settings folder from your PC where you have already redeemed the DLC/Awakening.
Copy the folder from your PC in Documents/My Games/BioWare/
The folder should be called Dragon Age.
Put the folder inside you MAC OS Documents folder inside a folder called BioWare.
Like this: username/Documents/BioWare/Dragon Age

Reviews
IGN: 90/100: http://pc.ign.com/ar.../1041792p1.html

System Requirements
OS: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or Lion
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
RAM: 2048MB
HDD: 25GB (for ultimate edition)
Video: nVidia 7xxx, 8xxx or 9xxx Series or ATI / AMD 3xxx, 4xxx or 5xxx Series Video Card

Tested on 10.6.8 with nvidia GTX285


Installation
I've used steam version. You can probably use a retail version too, with slight modifications to the path, since this isn't a CIderX build you'll need to use plist editor and edit Info.plist
Download the game with steam, this can be done with a steam wrapper or on a pc/bootcamp/vmware etc..

Navigate to the installation, it should probably be in:
c:/Program Files(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/dragon age/
NOTE, if you have a deluxe or ultimate version you need to rename it to "dragon age"
If the "dragon age ultimate edition" it won't work so rename it!!!!!!

Copy the whole folder inside the wrapper in c_drive/Program Files/
Add the files from the "Crack folder" that came with the wrapper into the /dragon age/bin_ship/ folder.

Edit: It seems some steam regions/and or steam versions need another fix, download the second download under download wrapper and replace this file in the bin_ship folder.

Known Issues:
-DLCs is a bit hard to get working, especially if you do not have access to a PC.

Media:
This is from my "old" Dragon Age Hack, the new one is pretty much the same, perhaps a bit faster.

Yes it's available as cider build for mac, if you read my post ...

The thing is that it is only available from Gametree as digital download.
It costs the same on steam and on gametree (€29.99), so if you don't have it, buy it on gametree.
It's meant for people that already have bought the PC version on steam and now wanna play it on mac.

Thanks a lot for your very mature report.
Normally people with issues asks for help, instead of just posting shit.
I have no problems making new characters, so the problem is at your end, not with the port.
Works very well on my 27" iMac i5 with ATI 4850 under Lion 10.7.3.

Thanks a lot, cluthz.

Thanks for the report, I'll mark it green for ATI too!
i asked you before and no one answered so what the hell am i supposed to do?? I had to do something to get your goddamn attention!!!
And What do you mean at my end??? I did everything right... and still I get this error!!!
do i update it or something???

You posted both within one minute..
I always answer people if they ask, and are polite. It's not hard to get my attention if you make reasonable reply.
Lately I've answering about 5-10 people a day. Half on PM half in the database or forum.

If you want help you can start posting system specs, and which version of dragon age you're using, and preferably some logs too.
Did you test it in windowed mode or full screen? If you tested windowed, try running the app fullscreen.
(It can be wise to close it down and open it after you change)

Also when I say there is something on your end doesn't automatically means you've done it wrong, but something on your machine is causing the issue. It could be another version of dragon age, some 3rd party apps or something else.
It's running fine on both my machines, and moleman claims it's fine on his iMac with ATI graphics too.
Sorry about my pervious comment and now it worked I tried in windowed mode and it runs...
SORRY! :(

No problems!
Thanks for the report!

Btw does it only work in windowed mode or was it a one time thing?
I've noticed that sometimes when I move back'n forth between windowed and fullscreen it can happen that mouse click is unresponsive.
it works perefectly for now I will keep you updated if anything happens though....
