If this port works well for you, please give it a rating!

  • Chrome or Firefox must be used to correctly download from Mega.co.nz!
  • Use 7zX to extract the .dmg file. Open the DMG and drag the wrapper to your desktop.
  • If you are new to porting/using wrappers, please visit this page: http://portingteam.c...-downloaded-it/

Personal Notes:

  • New wrapper, new engine!
  • Rapid boost in performance (on my NVIDIA GPU) whilst using the WineMac driver that has been updated in the new 1.5.26 engine.
  • I haven't encountered any freezing issues or serious lag, some frame drops due to running the game on ULTRA settings with HD Textures!

My System Specs:

- OS: OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2
- CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.2GHz
- RAM: 16GB 1600MHz
- Video: 2GB MSI GTX 670 OC Edition
- Disk Space:   8GB





Known Issues:

  • Game performance may vary depending on what Graphics Card you have! You need a 512mb graphics card (Minimum) to run this game comfortably.
  • No other issues.
Installation:







Installation:

  • Right click the wrapper, show package contents and open wineskin.app.
  • Click on advanced, tools, winetricks, click the 'apps' tab and select 'Steam'. THEN click run!
  • Let steam install.
  • Once its installed, go into wineskin.app within the wrapper, next to the steam launcher, and click on advanced.
  • Change the 'Windows EXE' line to: /Program Files/Steam/steam.exe and then exit wineskin.app.
  • Finally, run the wrapper, steam will launch, sign in to your steam account and download Skyrim. Once its downloaded, click play!
Now, whenever you launch the wrapper, it will sign into steam and allow you to launch your game via your 'Steam Game Library'.



For 'non steam users':
Please note that I do not (in any way) promote piracy and that I highly recommend you PURCHASE the games that you want to play!
  • Right click the wrapper, show package contents and launch wineskin.app, then select install new software.  
  • Locate the setup.exe file (that is within the .ISO you probably downloaded, if you download a .ISO file, double click it to mount it!) and install the PC files by going through the setup.
  • -- Don't bother installing directx and vcrun if it asks you too. --
  • Then, go back into the contents of the wrapper, go to: drive_c ----> Program Files ----> Bethesda Studios ---> Skyrim (make sure your Bethesda Studios and Skryim folders are named EXACTLY this) then drag/paste in the appropriate NoCD crack that works with the version of skyrim you have downloaded.
The last step is to launch the wrapper!




FOR STEAM USERS WHO GET NO TEXT STEAM BUG:
heres a quick video i made on what to do: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=pBQZna3OBoM

- install steam via steam.msi (which you download from store.steampowered.com
- Go into advanced in wineskin and click browse. Find steam.exe inside the /Program Files/Steam/
- Run it to see if you get the no text bug
- Go into wineskin again, advanced, tools, Config Utility, add application, find steam.exe
- Go into the Libraries tab and type *dwrite and press enter
- Click the edit button and select 'disabled' and then click Apply and Ok.
- Launch the skyrim wrapper and the no text bug should be fixed.




If it still doesnt work then you have applied the NoCD crack wrong (or havent at all) OR your folders are incorrectly named.
If so then :
  • go into wineskin.app within the wrapper and click on advanced.
  • Click 'Browse', go into program files and search for your skyrim folder and then select 'SkyrimLauncher.exe' and then exit wineskin.app. (the skyrim folder may be inside another Bethesda folder in program files).

PLEASE Report back on how this wrapper works on different GPUs such as Intel HD, AMD and even Nvidia! All feedback is greatly appreciated. (AMD and HD GPUs are currently untested)





Can I drag the files from my skyrim cider version? If so, where do I put them in?

Yes, just make sure you have selected SkyrimLauncher.exe through wineskin!
Is there anyway to install any DLC's into this? If so how? Would i have to get DLC files and copy them into the appropriate folders? Or is there an easier way?
For me cider works best but this one is still good. wine is easier for me to use, so if your new use this one.

The cider wrapper really performs bad on my GTX 670, this seems to work a lot better because of the new WineMac Driver in this engine!
Playing on ultra with hd textures and ENB now, runs great with some occasional frame drops!
I'm starting to test this port and definitely feel  better performance .

Thanks !
The Steam GUI is all messed up for me. It only shows things in main field (where the store items show up or your games, etc). The top and bottom where it gives you different tabs to go to (Library, Store, Account, etc) doesn't show up. It's pretty much impossible to navigate around.
So far the boost is noticeable in my iMac ( Ati 6750M 512 )

I have found the the fire is not shown in some situations like magic or torches :

Thanks for the feedback, I'll try to fix fire not showing in the game! Really great to see it works on AMD! Cheers!

Try this:
Go into wineskin.app, within the conents of the wrapper.
Open Wine config, Applications, add application then navigate to /Program Files/Steam/Steam.exe and click open.

Next stage is to go to the Library tab and type dwrite and then press enter.  After that, select drite and select the 'edit' button and then select 'disable'. Press apply and then Ok and then launch the wrapper. Hopefully steam text will work for you!

There is also this method you could try: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=6_ZS2AxGjiY

Another question: With this wrapper, how do I run the game in windowed mode?

Through skyrim launcher there is an option to run the game in a window, in the 'Options' tab.

That did it dude! Thank you so much.
For the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M card, the game starts, and runs. But i can't get the screen to load, what i mean is when i try to watch the beginning it will not load/show it. Any help or recommendations?
Thanks for the upload!
The problem on my HD3000 (384MB) is that it gets stuck in the loading screen, launcher and start menu work fine.
