About the Game

Developed by the Project Aces team, ACE COMBATâ„¢ ASSAULT HORIZON intensifies the franchise, escalating combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky. Players will engage in combat across the globe, dodging skyscrapers, and turning their enemies into fiery supersonic debris in both single player and online multiplayer. Never before has combat been so fast in-your-face.

Key Features
  • Exclusive for PC : Improved graphics (resolution up to 1900x1200p) ; online play up to 16 players and a huge bonus content pack (8 aircraft, 2 maps, 27 skins, 9 skills upgrades).
  • Dramatic realistic story line – Written by New York Times Best Seller and military author Jim DeFelice, players will experience an engaging war drama spanning real-world locations across the globe.
  • Steel carnage destruction – Incredible detail and visual reaction for every explosive attack (aircraft are shredded to pieces, enemy troops annihilated, buildings shattered, machines bleed)
  • Entirely new aircraft to pilot – Experience split-second maneuvering and positioning, pinpoint targeting, hovering attacks and other gameplay diversity through the introduction of the Attack Helicopter, Door Gunner and more
  • Revolutionary Close-range Assault system – Delivering high-speed acrobatics, dizzying one-on-one encounters, satisfying visceral low-attitude and high-flying death from above
  • ACE COMBATâ„¢ online reinvented – Take to the skies and engage hostile forces in a variety of modes including Capital Conquest (challenge opposing teams and fight to protect or take control of famous capitals around the world)
Personal Notes:
There are some really minor graphical glitches, but nothing annoying. Fully playable, a bit sluggish on older Macs.

My System Specs:
- OS: OS X 10.8.2
- CPU: Core i5 2.53GHz
- RAM: 8 GB
- Video: nVidia GT330M 256MB
- Disk Space: 11.2GB

Known Issues:
- Minor graphical glitches in flight
- LIVE PLAY (GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE) DOESN'T WORK!!! Don't click on anything related, IT'S GOING TO CRASH!

1. Extract the wrapper archive (double click on the .7z file)
2. Hold Fn + double click on the wrapper.
3. Click "Install Windows Software"
4. Browse to your "setup.exe" or similar
5. Complete the installation. YOU CAN'T SKIP the DIRECTX Installation, so DO THE FOLLOWING!!:
i) Redownload the wrapper, and paste the
   game folder from Program Files in the fresh wrapper.
6. When done, you will get a prompt to choose the executable. Choose "C:/Program Files/[GAME DIR]/Ace Combat_AH.exe"
7. Close all windows.
8. If the game's DRM prevents the game from starting, use a crack.
10. Close all windows and play!

This engine comes with some special settings you can change if you want to experiment with the performace. Open Wineskin, Go to advanced and run "Registry Editor".
From there, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D
Create a new STRING VALUE Named: OverrideVertexShaders. Set its value to "enabled" (without the double-quotes)
Create another STRING VALUE Named: VertexShaderConstants Set the values as follows:
I'd suggest values between 260-280, but of course feel free to experiment.
The lower you go, the faster the framerate, but you'll get more graphical glitches
The higher you go, the less glitches, but slower framerate.

USERS ON pre-5xxx ATi's (Radeon HD 2600/4670/4850/4870):
It seems that these cards only support 512-1024 Uniform Components, which are not enough to run this game on Mac OS X. You can experiment with values around 240 - 256, but there is no guarantee that the game will work.

Thanks for downloading!

Thank you Thanoulas for filling my request! Your ports are always a guarantee of quality :)
This is the first airplane related game that doesn't bore me. Even Angry Joe gave this the Badass Seal of Approval.
I got it running, but the game crashes as soon as the 1st cutscene gets about 8 secs in.  I don't know what's wrong, also I tried setting the constants value to lower than your recommended, and somehow it was still laggy on the menu screen.  Please help me, I tried all I could to get it to work.
Hi all I'm new here and I couldn't locate the setup.exe file in the folder can anyone tell me what to do?
Same problem as above, can't get it running :(
The wrapper is corrupt!
Is not possible make the modify in Wineskin and run "Registry Editor" for ATI/AMD users!
Please, new upload!
@raecho7 & rufus the setup.exe is located in the game folder, not in the wrapper.

I encounter troubles too. I get through the installation without any DirectX notification, then (switching the wrapper here doesn't change anything later) I do the "String value" part and run the game. It loads the menu smoothly but when loading the campaign an "Program Error" alert appears with these details:
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x762e9eb0 in 32-bit code (0x44f7d62c).

Already tried many times to reinstall or change the string values but nothing improved...
Thanoulas we need your help!

my system: imac 10.7.5, 3,6ghz, 4gb, ATI HD 5670 512mb
Are you using a crack? If yes which one?
It could also be the ATi card, have you enabled the overrides or not?

I'm uploading a new wrapper with a newer version of wine, see how that goes

@Piedon, the wrapper is file, your download is probably corrupt. Re-download and try again
I did the download a dozen times!
If I try to simply open the wrapper, (show content) the file "drive_c" is corrupted.
And when I try to start "Registry Editor", nothing happens!
Does not open the window, so I can not make any changes for my ATI card.
As you wrote you, because the wrapper functions with the ATI, have to make changes to "Registry Editor"
In any case, the wrapper does not allow for these changes.
It ' clear?
Get 7zx and extract the downloaded file with that, not the unarchiver which I presume you use. Your tool corrupts the archive, the downloaded file in itself is fine.
You were right, it was "guilt" for the application!
I downloaded the 7zX and now the wrapper it works!
Good work!
Thank you!
I just tested the last upgrade for the wrapper on OS X 10.6.8, using the installer (and then installing also DirectX) and WITHOUT any changes to the Registry Editor, all with an ATI Radeon HD 4870.
It works!
Good job ! Compliments !
Where do I find the setup.exe?
Thanks for the great work.  I had been experimenting with numerous combinations of Wine engines and varying winetricks before I finally got the good sense to Google "Ace Combat Wine" and this was the first entry to come up!  Works better than expected and looks beautiful!

Can't get the mouse steering to work as expected, and I plan to test it with a 360 controller later and my Logitech joystick later today when I get home.  Had been looking for a decent Flight Sim for my Mac and I think I may have just found it... thanks to you!
does it support mac? i dont have windows on my mac
