Ok man, if i will find the way to work, i will let you know and put some instruction here


Found the path where games are saving from steam.
/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/

Ok, i found the way to work dota2 with your wrapper.

1. Going /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/ Through muCommander.
2. Deleting dota2 and all files that associating with this game
3. Run Wrapper
4. RMC on Dota2 - Delete all content
5. Install Dota2
6. Have a good time and play ;)

Awesome. Will put on the main thread.
Happy that i could help ;) i will follow this threat anyway, if someone will have some problems with dota2 on mac. Maybe i can help more ;)
"failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer"

Try helping with that ;D I managed to grt that error when my Shadow and Textures were at High. But its different for others.
i think it maybe caused cause some macbooks have 2 graphic cards. So maybe this will help:

***First and foremost confirm that you have 2 graphics cards. Chances are you do, to those who dont im sorry the fix doesnt apply Posted Image.
***You'll probably have an intel chipset like i have and DOTA2 works on intel chips much better than they are working on the amd ones
***If you have the dual card the following link has a software that allows you to manage which of the two cards you can use.

^^^^
Download the following software, install it it will bring up either a D or and i - icon in the top right portion of your mac near the bluetooth symbol and wireless symbol. Be sure you dont have ilol or other graphics card intense programs on while you are doing this. Click on the logo that came with the software at the top right and use integrated only. This will switch your graphics to the intel chip and thus significantly reduce the lag ingame.

Enjoy! Let me know if it did not work or if it did.
Sincerely,
Trying to be helpful for Macbook users

This will help you to solve even problem with LOW FPS in game, for those who have DOUBLE GRAPHIC CARDS
Problem with "Failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer"

DONT PUT TEXTURES GRAPIC ON HIGH OPTIONS. MAX IS MEDIUM!
***If u have even problem with medium parameters, try to get game on low graphic, start game, if its run. Put more graphic one by one options and see what happens. So that u can solve the problem for ur machine.

1. Problem solved
2. Disappearing cursor in game ( Dont run game in window mode. Run only in full screen.)

My video preferences

Yup thats what i thought too, i've been telling everyone High for Textures and is like a definite no. For the cursor prob, in fullscreen i just Cmd + Tab and it becomes windowed and open Dota 2 ( it'll become fullscreen again) anad the cursor will be there.

yeah, but maybe this problem gets cause of double video. So others who gets it even on medium options. Have to experiment with graphics. I cant solve it, cause i get it only on max. options.
Trying this out.Hope this works.

EDIT: It works! Thanks :D
I am running the game in Fullscreen by default yet my cursor disappears every time.

I have it happen occasionally, i simply Cmd + Tab, Dota 2 become windowed and then click on finder or your browser. Then Dota 2 will automatically be minimised to your dock. Click Dota 2 and when it returns to full screen, the cursor starts working.


Btw, in case you are all wondering, this is my original account i managed to get back on.
There may be an update coming. Trying other engines.
Hmm... now i found a new problem... Cant update dota2 through wrapper
