Download Wrapper Fallout: New Vegas 1.8.1514

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

The series makes its way back to its West Coast roots in Obsidian's upcoming postapocalyptic role-playing game.There will definitely be gambling in Fallout: New Vegas. Whether or not the other wonders of Las Vegas--like buffets--will be included remains to be seen, but for now, we were assured that once you make your way to the strip, there will be a variety of ways to give up your hard-earned cash. At the Bethesda Gamers Day held in Las Vegas, Obsidian presented an hour-long demo of its upcoming role-playing game set in the dry and desolate Mojave Wasteland. Several members of the development team came from Black Isle Studios--the creators of Fallout and Fallout 2--so the game's story and setting will likely feel more familiar to those who had played the first two games.

Personal Notes:
- Only tested with SKiDROW release
- Update 7 Recommended
- DLC is working Fine
- Includes FOMM. Open the Wrapper and Run FOMM.app

Order of Files:
1. Wineskin2.5.8 Wrapper WINE Engine 1.5.14

- This over from appdb for FO3:


If you have 2 or more cores, do the following:
1) Open ~/Documents/My Games/FalloutNV/FALLOUT.INI
2) Find bUseThreadedAI=0 and change it to bUseThreadedAI=1
3) Add iNumHWThreads=2 after bUseThreadedAI=1
4) Save file

Minimum System Requirements:
-OS: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard / Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard / Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
- RAM: 2048 MB
- Video: nVidia 8xxx Series or AMD 4xxx Series Video Card recommended
- Apple's X11 must be installed
- 7.51GB Hard Drive Space required

Known Issues:
- Has Memory Leaks (known Wine bug) - Tried playing for 45 minutes - no crash
- Slow Performance on open areas - Set to low settings and no AF / AA
- Crashes when entering GoodSprings Store - looks fixed
- Randomly shows icon texture where it shouldn't. Goes away after a while.
- Choppy performance in some areas

- drag and drop installation folder from Program Files or install using wineskin installer.
- After that run the included FalloutPreferences app to setup your graphics settings, but DO NOT run the game from the Launcher.
- DO NOT Install DirectX, or the VC Redistributable at the end of the installation, as it will result in very slow framerates.
- Install SKiDROW Update 3 after installation. It fixes many issues
- Open wineskin, go to Advanced > Tools > Wine Registry Editor. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Wine > Direct3D and set the key "VideoMemorySize" to the amount of Ram on your VIDEO card. (the preset is 256). This will stop the crashes.
- If you don't see the VideoMemorySize property in the registry editor you will need to add it yourselves.
Alternatively, you can Fn+Click the wrapper, go to Advanced > Tools > Winetricks expand settings and look for the videomemorysize presets, choose one that suits your card or set it to auto.

Thanks for downloading!

Well, I thought I'd better mention that I now seem to have gotten New Vegas working under system Wine (I've not played it much yet, just tested it), so I'm probably not waiting for this to be fixed anymore.  This might also work for Simcity 4, though that I already got running in a Windows virtual machine.  I'd like to thank thanoulas, though, for their work on both; even though I don't appear to need them any longer, they have in the past brought me much joy; without the convenience of the wrappers, I might well have never resumed playing SC4 after I lost the Mac version, and I might well have never played New Vegas at all.  So, thank you, and I hope that you're doing okay.
When i try to install fallout a message pop up saying "The application X11 could not be opened.An error occurred while starting the X11 server: "Failed to activate core devices."
@AlejandroJYM: This message appears on OS X 10.11 El Capitan. You need to update the wrapper to version 2.6.2 via Wineskin
Quick question, but where is the installation file?
@oldcobaltking: You need to own a copy of the game.

Figured this out, but I got an "application load error"?
doesn't work. I got an "application load error" as well.
what file do i pick to play fallout
It works in Macbook Pro 13" Intel Iris 6100, 8gb ram, I5 2,7 ghz. OSX 10.11 (Updated wrapper with porting kit)
Im so lucky, just downloaded the wrapper the day before the link expired.
If someone want me to upload it, please send me a message, i have the .zip with the fresh wrapper.
Edit: The link is not broken anymore :)
So for some reason, when I launch the game and it goes full screen, the screen stays black then closes out. Would anyone be able to help me with that issue?
I just reinstalled everything to do another playthrough, but I'm getting a crash every time I get past a loading screen. Doesn't matter if I load an old save file or start a new game, as soon as the loading screen ends, I get a black screen, the X cursor, and then a dump to desktop. Any ideas?
I'm having trouble getting this to run, I'm new to this stuff and I may be just too stupid to figure it out, so can anyone help me? I got the zip downloaded and unzipped it, thats as far as i can get
