Screenshots
Call of Duty: World at War, the fifth installment of the Call of Duty series, features a more mature theme than previous installments in the series. The game is also open-ended, as there are multiple ways to complete objectives. The gameplay of World at War shares several features with previous iterations of the franchise. Once again, players fight alongside AI-controlled teammates. They help during the game's missions by providing cover fire, shooting down enemies, and clearing rooms for entry.
The game's return to World War II-era warfare reintroduces weapons and technology that have been seen in other games in the Call of Duty franchise, including the Thompson submachine gun, the Mosin-Nagant rifle, and the Panzerschreck anti-tank rocket launcher. The player gains access to these over the course of the game, but may only carry up to two weapons in addition to hand grenades. Weapons from fallen foes can be picked up to replace weapons in a player's arsenal. Players can also find weapons with additional attachments, including guns equipped with rifle grenades, telescopic sights, and bayonets.

tested Version: US- Release
Strategy First Person Shooter

Personal Notes:
UPDATE 16.2.2011
I need you help for the next update.
I have still some issues with the game in version 1.7.

The singleplayer works now, but i cannot find a working lan fix exe.
I found one on gamecopyworld, that does throw errors at me.
Please post lan fix exes for version 1.7 here with sha1 checksums,
so we make sure, that you are not linking to the same executable.
To get it's checksum open the terminal and type "openssl sha1 "
and drag&drop the lanfix.exe to your terminal window. Then hit enter
and there is the checksum.

For the multiplayer. I cannot get official profiles for users of the orginal game
to work, maybe because I cannot test it very well, because I did not buy the game.
(Just got it from a friend, because mainly the nazi zombies are interesting for me.)
So I am trying to get private servers to work.
For them I need to start a little exe file, that provides the patch at runtime, via pressing
F3, while in-game. So I need a windows programmer, who writes a very small exe,
that does just open the "CoD 5 1.7 Privat Client Patch.exe" file (the client patcher and can
rename it, if necessary), sleeps a second and starts the codwawmp.exe.
Very basic I think, but I never programmed on windows.
(a bat file would not work in Cider, it needs to be an exe-file. Best would be
coded in c++, I think. It should not require any runtimes, if you can only code .net
apps, it would not be very helpful.)

I do not plan to release this wrapper, before not any of this functions are working.
A wrapper for just use the singleplayer and therefore just the half of the game,
is not what I want.

UPDATED 11.4.2010
- Changes:
ATi Fix is included in the wrapper download
Wrapper has now a nice installer
Release v1.0 (!)
UPDATED 6.4.2010 !
- Changes:
Now it's a Cider Wrapper, with much better performance, faster loading times and SOUND!
UPDATED 20.2.2010 !


Requirements
OS: Tested on Snow Leopard 10.6.3, minimum system version of this wrapper is 10.6.2.
  (But I don't give support to 10.6.2 users, cause there is no reason to skip this update.
   10.6.3 OpenGL 3.0 features are highly recommend for the game.)
CPU:  Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz or higher
GPU:  min. 256MB RAM, good card needed to run it at highest details. (e.g. my 8600M GT runs at medium details.)
  ATi X1600 not supported. Intel GMA not supported.
RAM:  min. 1GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 8,2 GB

Known issues:

-  Online-Multiplayer isn't working for me, but for a friend of mine. Just try it out, I don't know why it don't works for some people.

-  Mods can crash the game. (See notes to install them)

- You have to start the singleplayer app one time before starting the multiplayer app. Without launching the singleplayer app before launching the multiplayer app, you game will crash every start! With this warning: "Could not copy Preferences Folder". If this happens to you, open Terminal and type "sudo rm ~/Preferences/Call\ of\ Duty\ -\ World\ at\ War\ Preferences".


Installation instructions:

Make sure that you have your install folder of CoD WaW before installing.
GREAT NEW WRAPPER INSTALLER! JUST SELECT YOUR
CoD WaW - FOLDER AND THE INSTALLER DOES THE REST FOR YOU (!)


I tested it with version 1.5! No guaranty that it works with other version. If you use another version you should change the version registry key found in system.reg. For me 1.6 or 1.7 never worked! Just stay at 1.5.

If you don't need the multiplayer app, just delete it. But don't delete the singleplayer.app it is necessary to run multiplayer.

Cooperative Multiplayer (LAN) works without an online profile!

MOD Install

Navigate to "User -> Library -> Preferences -> Call of Duty - World at War Preferences -> p_drive -> User -> Local Settings -> Application Data -> Activision -> CoDWaW -> mods". If the mods folder doesn't exists, add it. Place your mods there.
You can only do this after the first launch of Call of Duty World at War.

Performance infos / other infos:

Great performance with the new Cider Wrapper.
Not as good as windows, but very nice.

Hey, this is not the right place to ask about this, but if you want to learn how to port there are some very nice guides on this forum. Check the tutorial section of the forum.

If you are using snow leopard I would suggest trying the CXEx tutorial, since it covers some of the basics.
viewtopic.php?f=117&t=8571

There is also a CiderX tutorial:
http://portingteam.c...oject/Tutorial/

I don't believe there is a Wineskin tutorial (correct me if I'm wrong), but there are much info here:
viewforum.php?f=179

Don't give up if you don't succeed at first, porting requires quite a bit of knowledge and much trial and error.
is multiplayer playable ?

thanks
If all other players are using 1.5 and you do not play online, Yes.
I installed and played this game, and it ran great on my mac.  2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. 4gb ram.  1.6.8.  However, when I open it now, I get the "Run In Safe Mode" message.  When I boot up the game, it quits and says "Error during initialization: Unhandled exception caught"  Any fixes would be greatly appreciated.

Use version 1.5.
I have been using 1.5.  LIke I said, when I first installed the game it worked fine.  In a couple of days I booted up the game and I got a black screen, forcing me to turn off my computer.  Since then, when I boot up the game I get those error messages.
Then reinstall it. Seems that some permissions in the wrapper are broken. That is quite hard to fix. Reinstalling is easier.

Reinstalling hasn't worked.  I googled the error and found a common error for windows computers.  http://www.neoseeker... ... on-caught/

It may be a completely different error.  Is there a manual fix that you have in mind?
this error has a totally different meaning in cider, that on windows.
have you installed any software or updates lately? maybe lion?

I had not installed any software while the game was working.  It crashed when I was trying to livestream it.  I had Adobe Media Flash Player, and Camtwist open.  Maybe the applications changed some settings.  Since the game stopped working I have installed the 1.6.8 supplemental update, a security update, and the new itunes.
That is all very wired. I have honestly no idea how to fix this...

Is there a way I can load the game so I don't get the "run in safe mode message"?
Maybe if you delete your savegame folder. (make a backup first) delete the "call of duty world at war preferences" folder in /Users//Library/Preferences.

Good luck.
