Download Wrapper War Thunder 1.0

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

War Thunder (formerly known as World of Planes) is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online combat flight simulator developed by Gaijin Entertainment (IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey). The game is currently in the open beta testing phase, and is constantly undergoing small to big changes to improve gameplay and eliminate as many bugs as possible.

Personal Notes:
Here comes my all-time favorite of the year. It's quite simple: if you're into Simulation or WWII or Massively multiplayer games then there's no reason you'll not be addicted to this game pretty soon.
It is frequently compared to World of Tanks but, having tested the two, I confirm that the games just do not race on the same track. War Thunder is just better in any terms (gameplay, graphics, historic researchs).
You currently only control warplanes but tanks and warships will be added pretty soon and will be able to fight each other on epic on one single epic batterfield.
Note that a wrapper already exists on Paulthetall website but hasn't been updated since March. The step-by-step installation process isn't available there neither.

My System Specs:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.8.4
- CPU: CORE i5 2,5GHz
- RAM: 4 GB
- Video: AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 Mo
- Disk Space: 500 Go

For best performances Mac OS X 10.8+ is highly recommended.

Known Issues:
The game works flawlessly. However you might experiencing low framerate as the game is quite demanding on graphics requirements. To prevent this, go to the launcher -> graphic settings and turn off all optional graphic options and set the others to low.
Also, enable "old videocards support". The game will still look great and you'll be able to play with a decent framerate.

If you have a Nvidia card, my wrapper might not work. In that case, please download the nvidia dedicated one from PaulTheTall here.

If you experience some bugs/glitches in-game, please leave a detailled feedback and specify your system. Otherwise, I can't help you.
Also, I am unable to access to the "missions" (offline) mode. I get the following error: "Error 82220003: Connection to battle server was lost. You will be returned to menu". If any of you encounter this msg or succeed to play in missions mode, please let me know.

There's a little trick with the installation: the launcher will crash before downloading the whole game. Not a problem, just follow the indications:

1) Register on War Thunder website here. You need an account in order to play and save your progression.
2) Download the Wrapper from this page, drag it into your Applications folder and open it. The launcher is pre-installed. It will start downloading the game files but soon an "exeption" error will appear. Don't mind it, click "ok" and click on "download torrent" on the bottom right of the launcher.
3) Download the torrent (approx. 6 Go).
4) Once download is finished, copy all the files it contains. Then right clik on the wrapper -> drive_c -> program files -> War Thunder and paste/replace all files in there.
5) Close all windows and open the wrapper. It will analyse the files just added. When finished, reboot the wrapper. Then click on "play" and log in.

Tips: To avoid downloading the whole game everytime it needs to be updated (approx. twice a week), store your downloaded files on your HD and use this folder to dl the new update files from the torrent. It will replace the old ones, so you never have to dl more than the update requires.

Please feel free to leave questions or comments, I will do my best to help you. I will also update the wrapper when performances can be improved so remember to check from time to time if a new version is available. If you appreciated my port, please rate it. Enjoy!

What's New in Version 1.0 (See full changelog)

  • release version


Screenshots Screenshots Screenshots Screenshots Screenshots

You have to install Transmission first. Let me know if you have other questions.
WT is currently in closed beta for mac, and hopefully will be available in open beta in a few weeks. I'll let you know.
Need help. Put the downloaded files in HD and the update took forever to do. Is that just the update? What did I do wrong? Is it supposed to be fast?

Btw I have a MacBook Pro.
You basically need to download the torrent everytime the luncher ask to update. You probably experience the same "exeption" error when you try to update from the luncher. Just follow my indications ("tips") and let me know if it worked.
Now when I press play, it says "Critical Error" Some video options are not supported by your video card. If you have two video cards installed on your computer, try switching cards.
Shader version 3.0 is not supported. [81110001]

How do I fix this? I have all settings on low...I used to be able to play it before but some planes would having missing textures and so then I updated it and it doesn't work now...I really need help...
I don't know if this was right but I put in the trash then took it out to reinstall to get the update...if I screwed up something major, is there a way to delete everything of war thunder and then restart the whole process over again?
I'm afraid I don't have any solution for that. You are not the only one to get this kind of error related to the video card. Remember to enable "old videocards support". You might have more chance with the nvidia/ati dedicated wrapper from paulthetall but if not you will have to wait and join the mac beta test when it opens. Check the thread here. Hope that helps.
So now I can start from scratch. So is there any apps I need to download before this wrapper? And when everything is downloaded, it says copy all the files it contains. Then right clik on the wrapper -> drive_c -> program files -> War Thunder and paste/remplace all files in there. Which files and what contains the files? And is remplace a term? and the reason im asking is you used multiple times...is that a typo and supposed to be replace? And what will the wrapper be called? (the one i right click)
Thanks and if u could answer all these questions that would be nice.
So, here's the answers to your questions:
- No other app needed.
- You have to copy/paste all the files from the torrent you downloaded into the program files -> War Thunder folder (don't forget to drag the wrapper from the .dmg file to your applications folder).
- It is indeed "replace".
- The wrapper is the application itself (so its called "War Thunder") and you get it from this page.

If you previously have been able to play the game (even with glitches) then you succeeded at installing the game. The critical error is probably a hardware related problem.
What exactly is the program files called? I cant find it...sorry for a noob question. And for the updates, what do i drag into the hard drive that will make the updates not reinstall the whole game?

I have a folder that says "My Games" and when i click on it there is a war thunder folder, should i paste it into there? (when i click on the war thunder folder, there is a saves folder, should i put it into there?) (in the saves folder there is a thing called profile.config.blk just saying)
Apologize for the noob question, but am using "uTorrent" and am not sure how to move all the files over into the War Thunder file. Seem unable to copy and paste the files or pretty much do anything with them…. Where do I go from there?
Hey, i would need some help, downloaded the wrapper but everytime i try to launch it it tells me launcher.exe has encountered an error and need to quit immediately, this is the error message i get

We thank you for your kind report. Be aware that the wrapper version is now outdated. You will find the native version here. Have a nice day.
When I downloaded the game it launches and everything but I can't sign in.  It gives me and authorization error.  Can I get any help?
Did you download the wrapper or the native version? If you're talking about the native version, don't forget to copy the luncher file into your applications folder!
can we get the wrapper again? the native version is frankly poop compared to the port.
