Well this is a great game and Jade empire/Kotor also from bioware have been port so maybe it can be done with this game.

i tried cidering Mass Effect some time ago, and boy, you have no idea how complicated that new engine from bioware is.
I would even say, we should see a Cider version of Crysis before we se a Cider of Mass Effect.
Hello. Sadly, I am not active here on the Porting Team anymore, and therefore I cannot give support or answer questions to any of my posted Ports or posted topics.

A Mass Effect port for OS X is definitely possible with what is available right now... it's just that we lack people technical enough to pull it off. The game has a GOLD rating in Wine's app DB and is considered fully playable (on linux). It supposedly doesn't work on crossover however, so it would require someone who knows how to compile wine under os x. If you believe you have what it takes, here is the entry explaining how to get Mass Effect working under wine: http://appdb.winehq.... ... n&iId=7465

If you can do this and make an app wrapper that would be awesome :).


Take care,
Raz.

Mass Effect is an Unreal Engine 3.0 game; I haven't seen any UE3 game run in Cider yet, and you can be guaranteed the performance will be abysmal. Unreal Engine 3 is already ported to the Mac tho natively, we just haven't seen a game released yet that uses it; here's a pic of Unreal 3 running on OS X from the developer: http://icculus.org/c... ... e=06-38-30

Did you even bother reading my full post? I know it doesn't work under Cider or CrossOver. It DOES however run full speed with a GOLD rating under Wine on Linux with some tweaking which is described at the link I've given. In other words, if someone knows how to compile Wine under OS X, he should be able to create us a wrapper and set of patches for Mass Effect under OS X.

Hey, maybe it could be done through DARWINE?
http://darwine.sourceforge.net/

At the other hand you're right Raziel, lot of linux programs can be compiled under Mac easily but I think linux WINE could be very sophisticated piece of software and therefore couldn't be ported to OSX so easily.

It's been some time since the last post, and things have now definitely changed for the best with all the new tools and everything.
Would it now be possible for Mass Effect to be ported?

I mean, in the end, even Unreal Tournament 3 got ported (through CXSkin), which is (obviously) an Unreal Engine 3 game.
