Ok, so as I'm sure everyone knows, fallout 4 comes out tomorrow.  I pre-ordered it on steam and I have a windows computer, but my only computer good enough to play it is my mac (ironically).  I have made wrappers for things before, but I need to know if there is an already made wrapper that you think might work well, or is there anything in particular I should put in a wrapper if I make one for it.

Initially I'm going to attempt to modify the a skyrim wrapper as it currently has the most similar engine to fallout 4. I'd advise you do the same until someone who really know whats going on builds one from "scratch".

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Sorry guys, it'll be futile to attempt any port of Fallout 4. Like all newer games being released it depends on an 64 bit system structure as well as DirectX11...both of which are not supported in Wineskin.

See also here regarding 64-bit and Wine: http://portingteam.c...ine-64bit-news/

Currently I'd recommend a Mac Pro with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 (replacing the original AMD FirePro) running Windows natively under Boot Camp.

Would Crossover work? They now release Crossover 15, but do they have that DirectX11 games compatible? The only problem is that you have to buy it.

Crossover is based on Wine. V15 is based on Wine 1.8. The difference is that Crossover offers support and a more user-friendly configuration.

The developers at Crossover also make changes to the vanilla wine 1.8...preliminary DX11 has been implemented although a Codeweavers press release states that DX11 is about a year or so away from full implementation. But that doesn't solve the X64 issue...unless you're using a Linux distro

Until DX11 is supported, your best chance for playing Fallout 4 on a Mac would be Bootcamp. Your Mac's hardware is more effective when running Windows and a high-end game like Fallout 4 is very taxing on your graphics card and processor. I skimmed this thread: https://www.reddit.c...ootcamp_thread/ and it looks like it was able to run pretty well on the MBP with the dedicated AMD 2 GB graphics card and at very low quality and FPS on the Intel integrated graphics. iMac users were successful with running Fallout 4 as well.

Good idea, one problem. Windows Licenses are so expensive.
