* * * * - 11 Votes Please vote for the Quality of this Port / Wrapper, not for the Game or Application!

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 !

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.

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.

Have fun :D

Sooo, no OS X 10.5.8? Bummer :/
i get a black screen for 6-8 seconds then it quits. and i have the full game on CD.
does this still work on 10.6.8 snow leopard?
It does work on SL just fine.
no it dosent, i tried and it no work. like i posted on may 1st "i get a black screen for 6-8 seconds then it quits. and i have the full game on CD."
Then you have a wrongly patched version or no-cd crack. Please verify, that you are using version 1.5 and the Lan-Fix exe that comes with the wrapper. Otherwise it will quit like you said.
I have a poblem
when i arrive to the part of the installation when I have to select my World at War folder it tells me after i select it,

Security API failed with error -60008

any help?
Can you take it off that site? I can't download it i just get a big add and there is now way to move it so download is impossible.
does the pezbots mod work with this wrapper?
Security API failed with error -60008

what now? :(
To everyone with the "Security API failed with error -60008" error: have you tried restarting your mac? I also received that error and I couldn't figure it out. I decided to reboot and I immediately ran the wrapper and it worked. Go figure. Also, make sure you select only the wrapper that corresponds to your graphics card.

Drakulix, can you write out another way to fix the "Could not copy Preferences folder." please? I tried to do the terminal script that is written in the original post, however I always get the same error:
rm: /Users/name/Preferences/Call of Duty - World at War Preferences: No such file or directory

I'm on Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Thanks
I need A Lot of help. i don't wanna type it, so please hit my Skype up for vocal help, because i have a lot to say! taylorgangg51 thanks!
Who ever reported this port broken, if you are too stupid to use this port or if you have simply not enough knowledge, it is not my fault. This port works fantastically for me and many others.
No reason for the broken report, the second download link works just fine!
does multiplayer now work or not?
