Set in 2152 (two years before the events of the film), Avatar: The Game starts out with a Na'vi warrior named Rai'uk, who is the last of a clan that was destroyed by the RDA (Resources Development Administration). On his journey of seeking vengeance against the RDA across Pandora, Rai'uk encounters many creatures and machines from the film such as a banshee that he uses to fly to different locations on Pandora that was also captured by an RDA mercenary named Sean Wallen, who was also the leader of the RDA squadron that destroyed Rai'uk's clan, a thanator, the avatar of Grace Augustine at the Omaticaya school, AMP (Amplified Mobility Platform) suits, AT-99 Scorpion tiltrotor aircrafts, a C-21 Dragon gunship, an SA-2 Samson Tiltrotor military transport, and RDA soldiers equipped with many different arsenals from small-caliber handguns, to rocket launchers.

Personal Notes:
I played fine with medium display settings. This game is worth trying because the graphics are pretty good, even on low. If you liked the movie, you should try it.

In the process of porting this game and trying to get it to work, I experienced no sound in the game. I have a NVIDIA 9400m graphics card.I fixed this by using the Config Utility to set the audio "Hardware Acceleration" to "Emulation" instead of "Full" and set the "Default Sample Rate" to "48000."

My Theory: If you have no sound, possibly as a result of my changes, maybe with an ATI card, try changing these settings back.

HOW TO:
1. Right Click and Select "Showing Package Contents"
2. Open Wineskin.app
3. Advanced-Tools-Config Utilitity (winecfg)
3. Go to tab labeled "Audio"
4. Under DirectSound section, change "Hardware Acceleration" to FULL and "Default Sample Rate" to "44100".

(Please let me know if this worked)

Minimum System Requirements:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard / Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
- Intel CPU- Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz
-AMD CPU - Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5200+
-RAM - 2GB
-Nvidia Graphics Card - Geforce 8600 GTS 512MB
-ATI Graphics Card - Radeon X800 XT
-See also 3D capabilities (above)

Known Issues:
-When "SHADOWING" is set to anything higher than medium, the sky will become black.
-ATI: Some texture issues; 'white' animals (copter, tele-porter)

Installation:
-Use Wineskin.app to Install or drag and drop game contents to “Program Files/Ubisoft/James Cameron's AVATAR - THE GAME folder in the wrapper.
-Recommended (if game you installed is v1.0): Update from 1.0 to 1.01 (update posted below wrapper), then Game will Autopatch the next time you launch to 1.02
-Use keygen to activate (posted below wrapper)
-Play

Here is a keygen that works. It needs to be run on Windows. It won't work with Crossover, Wine, Cider, or any other porting methods. The game provides a hardware ID. Enter in keygen. The generated key will activate the game.

Here is the 1.0 to 1.01 updater if game version isn't updated yet:


How To Update:
1. Download update and drag to your Desktop for easy access
2. Right Click on AVATAR.app and Select "Showing Package Contents"
3. Open Wineskin.app
4. Click "Install Windows Software'
5. Browse to "avatar_1.01_americas_europe.exe" and select
6. Follow Instructions and patch game (basically click "Next" a few times, and "Finish")
7. Once it is finished, a windows will show up that says "Please choose the main Executable that is supposed to run" select the one that ends with AVATARLauncher.exe
8. Click "Quit" and you are done.

OR (thank to Doh123 for idea)

1. Download update
2. Drag and drop "avatar_1.01_americas_europe.exe" onto AVATAR.app
3. Follow instructions and patch game (basically click "Next" a few times, and "Finish")

is this the full game or the wrapper?

there are 4 parts..

sorry i'm kinda new here. please help
This doesn't work for me. It wants to update when I launch the game and it looks for a pathway on your machine...then crashes when it can't find it

try changing the path in wineskin settings > advanced > wineskin tools > wine config > desktop integration
or block it from accessing the net (or turn off the net)
That has nothing to do with it...this game has been cracked, I just don't think this particular version has been correctly. And the problem isn't even that the game isn't cracked, it's the fact that there is no information concerning that particular issue. I'm now downloading the proper Reloaded 1.01 patch... What version of the game is this release....that's something else that isn't in the notes.....the port info includes the application but fails to include the engine type and wine version...again lacking information that says a lot about the port. Something else I would like to suggest is to compress the application before you split it up...it can have adverse affects on the files when you concatenate it to a playable state. By compressing before splitting it keeps all files in tact. When I changed the file extension types and opened it with Split and Concat the icon was not being displayed and instead the icon was the Apple Application icon. Its little things like these that could potentially kick you out of the running for a POTW.

I'm not trying to rip apart your share because it's most definitely appreciated and we urge all members, new and old, to share according to our guidelines. The two things we ask most is to protect your links in the games and wrappers sections and to follow the game template and you always do that, which is awesome....but you've got info on every version going...we only care about the Mac version here. You really shouldn't cut and paste out of a wiki is all I'm saying...and basically everything from Story to Input methods isn't really necessary...use parts of the wiki...for sure...just not the whole article!
As a side note to DankoB, unless there is a reason not to use the native Mac version (ie Diablo II, Warcraft III, which are PowerPC games), a port shouldn't be made. Does the native suck?

I can't open it with split & concat, he says that it's a directory or an app. I never seen *.df00x files before, what have you done about file extensions to get it work? I changed them to *.00x but the same message appears!
change it so it says zip.000, zip.001, zip.002 and so on

Same here.

DankoB said:

Error message is:

'(OVL) Missing overlay! Please reinstall.'
I cant even open it i changed it to zip.001 and so on but it still says when I try to open the first part.
U cannot split a folder or an OS X application! Please place the file first on a disk image using Disk Utility!
What Am i meant to do?
I have the same problem as dankoB. How do I get the game to work!!!
Thanks
Don't even try it. Just buy the Mac version.
Sorry I havent been able to keep up with this port. I'm in Door County Wisconsin. No internet and barely any cell phone reception. I'm at the library right now.

The Wine engine is WS3 1.2 and the Avatar version is 1.02

I'm going to fix and reupload the game when I get home on saturday. Just be patient please.
@nintendotoad but there are a mac version??? if you could tell me the link to buy it even though I believe there is an official version!  :fool:
There is no MAC Version! Only a iphone game!!

This game is actually 1.02 version, by the way. It works perfectly on my laptop. This is weird. I did compress the app before splitting it up. I always do that.

Since I haven't had any difficulties with this port, I cant troubleshoot any issues. I need someone to tell me if they have gotten this to work on their mac.
I was able to get this working up to the point of not having a valid activation key... so it would probably work if you enter your own game key at this point...

how to do that? well the wrapper is a bit messed up.

You need to look inside the wrapper and copy the Users/Wineskin/Temp folder over into the Public Folder

then you need to Open User.reg file and find

[Environment] 1280424712
"TEMP"="C:\\users\\Greg\\Temp"
"TMP"="C:\\users\\Greg\\Temp"

and change it to

[Environment] 1280424712
"TEMP"="C:\\users\\Public\\Temp"
"TMP"="C:\\users\\Public\\Temp"

at this point the patcher works, but whatever hack was used to get past the cd key check no longer works cuz the auto patcher just patched the game... so it has to be re-hacked or a legal CD key entered which it will ask for.
