Download Wrapper Mass Effect 3 2.2
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.
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 )
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
If you wonder how your graphics compare click here:
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The Mass Effect Config app inside the wrapper will tell you that DirectX is out of date, ignore it.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
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.
