How did you get Wine? Prebuilt binaries such as WineBottler come with a means of accessing Winetricks for these very tasks.

Right. I understand now... when you open Wine on your Mac, could you please attach a screenshot of the About dialog for it? You can capture it easily with the following combination: :apple: + Shift + 4, then press Space, then click the window to capture.

As far as VMware Fusion goes, I have not tried gaming with it (and my Windows XP disc won't let me activate it anymore) so I can't be of much help there.

You need a windows installation disc to use Boot Camp. Yes, it is free. It comes with Mac OS X, so there's nothing to download to get the setup started. Switching OSes is easy - the Boot Camp Windows utilities installs a Boot Camp control panel, where you can return to Mac OS X easily.

Running bootcamp is meaningless in your case because you don't have windows installation disk.

On the same note, if you want to play games, the best route is bootcamp to install a windows OS on your mac.

save yourself the troubles and buy yourself a legit copy of Windows if gaming is so important to you.

For newer Mac, Windows 7 is preferred. If you only play mass effect 1, Windows XP can do the job. But after getting the multi boot systems with the boot camp, you might want to play more games.
