Screenshots
20. November 2014:
New update, rebuilt engine, should now fix crashes on Cerberous missions and Tuchanka.

Update!!! 17. December 2012:
Added a new version, this should effectively replace all older versions, but I leave them there incase some want those instead.
Updated to work on 10.7.5 and 10.8.2
There is an icon pack there I made one night when I was bored too :)

"Thanoulas' fix" for AMD/ATi speed issues are added, please read the instruction file bundled with the new wrapper.
I do not have an AMD/ATi graphics card myself, so I have not tested this myself, but I suppose it should work.
This should make the game run in full speed on AMD/ATi graphics too!

The game is reported to run very good on all modern NVidia cards, even people with 8600M is reporting good frame rates at low/med settings!


Thanks to Thanoulas helping me with the Lion hack, without him this would not have been possible!

There is a ME3 Config.app inside the wrapper. Be sure to set your settings here. In-game settings are much more limited! Ignore and directx related errors here.

Personal Notes:
This port have been a tough one. After hours and hours of working it is finally working 100%!
Taking all the credit for this would be unfair, and "matthew" submitting the ATI bug on winehq and the guys at winehq for coming up with a fix deserves a big one!
Also thanoulas which already made mousewarp work with rawinput did write the hack that allows the game to run on Lion!
I would also like to thank rynotheking14 for helping out with the cider version, which unfortunately doesn't work properly (yet :P )
The game runs very well on my GTX 285, but I guess people with Intel HD and 13" Macbook pros will have some lag. Performance is good, but the Cider port is slighty faster on my mac.

My System Specs:
OS: Mac OS X 10.6.8 / 10.7.3 / (updated 10.8.2)
CPU:  Core 2 Duo 4.0GHz (updated Core i5 4.3Ghz)
RAM:   6 GB (updated 16 GB RAM)
Video:  nVidia GTX285 1024MB
Disk Space: 12 GB

Quote

Official Recommended VideoCard: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB or greater, NVidia GeForce 9800 GT 512 MB or greater
If your system specs doesn't meet these please don't complain about lag.

If you wonder how your graphics compare click here:
Spoiler

Known Issues:
Game might not be full screen on launch, just set your appropriate resolution ingame after starting a game.
The Mass Effect Config app inside the wrapper will tell you that DirectX is out of date, ignore it.
Some ATI/AMD have reported issues. Same issue as described on the comment below this post:http://appdb.winehq....rsion&iId=25495

Installation:
Buy the game on origin.
Install the game on a PC/bootcamp/vmware, you could try use origin on mac with a wrapper, but i had issues with it.
Once the game is installed you need a crack, I used reloaded.
Yes, you need crack even if you bought it!
Once properly cracked copy the "Mass Effect 3" folder into the wrapper to "PUT GAME IN HERE" folder.
Start the game by double clicking the wrapper, or run the "Config.app" inside the wrapper first to set your settings.

Video from my mac:
-enjoy!

All the shots are from my mac in mac os!

I haven't tested yet on my Intel HD, since I'm been frapsing a video for the port first.
Intel HD is way below official system reqs, (which is 4850 or 9800GT) and those cards are more than five times faster.
I'll report back with my testing on the MBA later.
some of my in game textures aren't showing up. like people and the reapers.
Do i just have to play with the config till it works or is it just not working with my ATI card?

ATI Radeon HD 5670
snow leopard 10.6.8
Oh and the last generation imac
Is it 512 MB or 256mb? 256MB might be too little to hold all textures.
Have you used winetricks before? If you have try disable glsl and report back.
You could also try FBO=backbuffer
its 512 mb. ill try and play around with stuff. i have a backup on the cinder wrapper
so ill give feed back.

Tryed disabling GLSL, caused black screen with sound
FBO didn't do anything as well sadly.
On a 2011 Macbook Pro with AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB, I get black screen. Lion 10.7.3

The cider port works no problem on my rig except for no sound.

Oh my God, I love you. No homo. Thank you SOOOOO much!!!
I need to get AMD testers. If people get ME3 to run in any engine in Wineskin, please report and I'll try patch the mouse.
As for on my machine I can run the game on max settings at 40ish FPS with AA and AF and everything :D
