Using just the Intel card it doesn't crash, but that's not really a solution. Either way, the macbook is with Apple now.

Shame. Guess we'll all have to exercise some more patience, guys. Maybe we should petition Apple to fix the damn thing faster? :P

before you sent your laptop in I hope you took a backup since sometimes they wipe the drive and also the time it takes to replace a logic board on a mac book is about 3h if you've never done it before so they probably have your computer on a shelf at the back waiting for the part to come in

Too bad about the video card. I've been following this for a while now and I've really been looking forward to playing it on my mac. I don't have so much coding experience but tell me if i can be of any help. :P

But, please, wait. There's tons of stuff to be done. As you can see in the last screenshot, the client loses authentication (which it never had - lulz!)
So, anyone good at reversing? I'd like to find out how the 6 hex digit auth key is generated at every launch, or clean up all the checks. Who can help?
I don't think I can find this on my own, I've already patched one check but they could be countless.

If no one offers to help, I'm afraid this project will die.
Thanks for your attention, and, please, for God's sake, don't ask when it will be ready again and again. Just post if you can help. I'm happy to share all my code and info.

Thank you Thanoulas for taking the project this far and putting so much time and energy into this.
Anyone have expertise in what Thanoulas is talking about?

It's not an incompatibility with wine. As you can see from the screenshots the game actually runs fine in wineskin. The problem is that the executable needs to be launched with a -HEXX=FFFFFF command line option, which I can't figure out how it's generated by the launcher although I reversed most of its code. I tried to disassemble the game's exe and removed a check that is done on launch for this, and it worked, as I managed to launch the game. But if you try to type in your username another check is triggered somewhere and the game quits. And I'm not even sure if it's going to manage to log in to servers without it. I could try, but the second problem is that I can't find where the second (random) check is done.

is it getting checked through the launcher itself or is it done through the internet connection?

I think the check comes from the server. I managed to find the second check and remove that as well. The game doesn't quit anymore, but I can't connect to the server to login, as probably for the server my client is not registered. So back to square one, I'm gonna give it another try to figure out how the value is being generated.

This may be a stupid suggestion, but have you tried getting in touch with HiRez Studios? Maybe they'd be willing to help, as this port wouldn't harm them in any way but rather generate new players. Just an idea :P
