    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)

    if you're not paying for it probably not, granted i didn't really read the original post...

    we are only doing a service to the mac community thought this would be good news to most

    no we do not provide the full game only the wrappers (that use wine) to port out games you have to own the full game to put in your windows files for it work

    ignoring the hostilities, great work and I might give this a shot. hah.

    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)...
  8. macrumors member

    well of course we would all love to see official ports of our games ;) someday i hope they will... they were a bit late last time

    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.

    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.
  12. macrumors 6502a


    I thought it was a ported game, how does the wrapper thing work?
  13. macrumors member

    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

    thanks! does this work properly?
  15. macrumors 6502

    Is this even allowed on the forums?
  16. macrumors Core


    *shrug* report it and see if it is.
  17. macrumors regular

    They are using a wine wrapper that they are calling wineskin. It is open source. It's legal to do it, they don't provide the game content, you have to have that yourself. They aren't using any verison of cider either so they aren't grabbing it from another game and violating licensing. Thanks for the heads up dafootballer. So I guess I'll join over there. I have talked w/ Doh before regarding NWN2 and his wrapper.
  18. macrumors 603

    I wouldn't exactly call this a "port." I imagine the performance is abysmal, the equivalent of trying to run it in Crossover. Good luck.
  19. macrumors 68040

    So is MW2 coming to Mac officially like COD4?
  20. macrumors member

    it could come to mac officially someday but nobody knows for sure...

    yes it is like booting up crossover but this is one app and its much, much faster and more effective, also its free

  22. macrumors regular

    Actually I have Dragon Age: Origins working in wine and also in Crossover Games. The only problem is I get a mini black shadow of all on screen characters at the lower left hand side of the display. I had to switch to backbuffer vs fbo because of flickering problems and movies aren't working. But the game is almost playable. I am rebooting though to play it though casue it looks so much better in windows.
  23. macrumors member

    Well it seems a member is going to look at it he says he has ported it but there are a few bugs similar to the ones you found in crossover.

    Ill keep you updated
  24. macrumors member

    wow, this sounds ...

    I like CoD MW myself, and looking forward to get hands on MW2.

    Wish mac version can ported earlier.:rolleyes:
