    so,i want to install wine so i can play my favourite RPG on my macbook,Fallout 3.but the only problem is,i've heard that the GOTY edition(game of the year)some time doesn't work with mac os x,or winebottler the program i will be using.I can get the GOTY edition really cheaply and this saves me a lot of money around £40,since i dont have to buy all the extras that come with it for £8 each.I was wondering if i should give it a go or if you guys know for a fact that it definitely doesn't work.Also,will the garden of eden creation kit(G.E.C.K) work with winebottler?Also,i wasn't sure if this was the right forum section for it,so apologies if it isn't.
    thanks for your time.

    Here is a better link from the wine website:

    http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=14322

    If you scroll down, it outlines getting DLC working using winetricks.

    If you installed winebottler from http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ then winetricks is included in the package and has an intuitive interface.

    In the past performance of wine differed greatly between linux and mac but now the performance is equivalent so the instructions from the wine website should be applicable.

    oh thanks,i downloaded winebottler last night,thanks for the info,i didn't realise winetricks came with winebottler.im still wondering though whether my mac is powerful enough to run fallout,since it's got 2gb ram and 2gb memory,so im not sure what's recommended for fallout,ill have to look for winetricks too lol.thanks again.do you know if Falllout 3 will work on a macbook pro with 2gb ram?

    Not much of a gamer so I don't know much about ram requirements for games. Sorry.

    no problem,you've more than helped already :) i'll make another thread about it.Thanks again,the main concern at the moment is whether fallout 3 will work or not and if i end up wasting £20,lol.And whether or not i'll be able to use winetricks.
