Is this legal? (genuine question, I don't follow this kind of thing but I'm sure I haven't seen any announcements about a port from Activision)

No, it's not. Redistribution of the Cider wrapper violates the Cider Technology License agreement. There's a good chance that other companies licenses are also being violated by this kind of redistribution.

its perfectly legal we do not use that old tech from Transgaming anymore we use the wineskin wrapper programed by our very own doh123, some older ports do, but this one does not

The wrapper simply works by transforming the dlls, exes, etc into one bundle that Intel Macs can play in a .app form you need the original MW2 files but we provide you with the software to use it.

i also apologize for having the thread closed thats why i posted the info on here we dont want people just leeching our forums without signing up

ZOMG you are one severely paranoid human. The MPAA and RIAA have got you quivering in your boots, haven't they. I can just picture you cowering in a corner as you posted this question. After a cool announcement like this, the very first question in your mind is "Is this legal?" You've been brainwashed by the media industry to believe that everything that isn't specifically legalized by them, is by default, illegal. The media industry is the great giver, and the great taker away, aren't they? It's quite sad and pathetic actually, that this is your thought process.

No wonder you're in time out with posts like this.
I'm not paranoid over it, you do know that forums have been shut down for distributing pirated games, right? And given that there has been no announcement for an official OSX port that could (could, which is why I asked) be an illegal move. The last thing I want is for MR to face legal action, I don't care much about the forum the OP keeps spamming.

I bought Modern Warfare 2 today and have downloaded the wrapper. However having installed the DVD contents using crossover games it appears I have installed Steam and there is no sign of the "Activision" folder mentioned in the installation instructions - am I missing an important step to somehow extract the game from steam? or do I just have the wrong version of the game?

Cheers

Andy

Depends on who you ask. Apple -- MUST -- believe that this sort of thing is illegal, otherwise they would have to allow other hardware manufacturers to run OS X on their non-Apple hardware.

This kind of running a Windows software through emulation/API-translation layers is somehow very similar. The only real difference is that game developers have an interest in selling as many copies of their games as possible, and games running in WINE do not hurt their sales.

Microsoft, on the other hand, probably could do a lot about this if they wanted to - after all, WINE implements the Windows API on foreign operating systems, and that, in all likelihood, infringes on a ton of Microsoft patents. It's just that Microsoft, unlike Apple, usually does not care about this sort of thing (unless it begins to really hurt their business, of course - but the amount of users using things like WINE is tiny).

I have no problems at all with cider port. maybe it runs a little bit slow at high settings that it would run on a simmilar PC but that may be cider port cause. I can't however wait for official MAC version.

the rig is in the sign

Cool. But it's rather sad that you have to register to view that thread LOL.

I rather wait for an official port (since all COD games so far made by Infinity Ward have been ported to the Mac)...

Great news. Won't create an account to view the thread however even though I would like to. Would like to see one for Dragon Ages: Origins also which I have running under wine/crossover with 1 minor glitch. Are you guys using the wine wrapper that Doh has been working on? Need to give his wrapper a try I think.

Its worse than that, I registered and still couldn't read the thread, they have some naff ritual type system going on where-by you have to jump through hoops before you can even read some sections.

Needless to say, I couldn't be arsed.

How's that going to work without Steam? The game heavily relies on Steam. How are people running it in Cider without Steam anyway?
