Download Wrapper Dragon Age Origins (Steam version) 1.1
"Men and women from every race; warriors and mages, barbarians and kings... the Grey Wardens sacrificed everything to stem the tide of darkness... and prevailed."—Duncan, head of the Grey Wardens in Ferelden
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.
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.

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.
-DLCs is a bit hard to get working, especially if you do not have access to a PC.
This is from my "old" Dragon Age Hack, the new one is pretty much the same, perhaps a bit faster.
What's New in Version 1.1 (See full changelog)
- Added an additional file that perhaps some steam users might need
