    Bit a of newbie question here, but will a cider/wine wrapper typically work with the Steam version of a game, or will it only work with the standalone version?

    My immediate thought is re: Skyrim, but applies to other games as well.

    I've typically used Bootcamp for PC games, but am interested in cider/wine wrappers. Any help would be appreciated.

    Steam works in wine, but not cider.

    If you wanna play a steam game in cider you have to crack it.

    There are Cider hack wrappers around that run Skyrim rather well... and Skyrim is a steam only game.. even if you buy the DVD it still goes through steam.

    I played some of my Steam games with Crossover from Codeweavers.
