World of Tanks on Mac :)
Installing World of Tanks on Mac OS X
There is a fairly simple video on this here:
1, You need an Intel Mac
2, Get Wineskins from here : http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/tik...page=Downloads
3, Get the dmg image of the pre-made WineSkin App for WOT from here : http://www.paulthetall.com/world-of-tanks-mac.html
Follow the video instructions. Pretty simple.
|Personally its better in boot-camp. But this takes up way less space and you don't have to reboot each time you want a game.
This works for me. While I still use bootcamp on the macbook air, Macman runs this as an app on his HD4000 i7 based macbook pro and its fine (40fps).

I tried WOT 0.8.5 in four different ways on mac:
On my imac 27'' i got this results.
1 - Wine-devel +winetricks from homebrew. It works OK (no crashes but the mouse from OSX appears on the game) but i get poor FPS even in Lower settings- ~20/30 FPS
2 - Vmware Fusion it works amazing. Medium settings ~40/45 fps
3 - I tried Parallels 8 Trial and also works amazing. Medium settings 45/50 fps. But it seems to me that the vmware textures sometimes are a little better. But overall i feel that the performance is better than Vmware Fusion.
4 - PlayonMac. Works but i got random crashes.
As you can see you can play this game on mac and have plenty of options to do it. I will try to buy Parallels 8 which seems the best option to play this game but vmware is also a good option.
It seems to me that you get more FPS than me on wine i will try to investigate what's in that bottle.
Just for the record in my tests even with other games (Arctic combat/Counter Strike) i get decent performance on Virtual Machines.
