How did you make Half Life 2 working since Steam won't even run ? You used some NO-STEAM version of the game ?

What does your registry key look like when you have it into the system.reg file? I have tried to use it and it still does the same stuff (mostly crash)

Battlefield 2 works. Need to make sure registry entries are in system.reg or is unplayable on LAN or Internet servers.

So if I add those settings (any idea which ones and how?) I can play online in BF2?

You need to use the Game Tap version of Cider, hence the GT, I intend to put better instructions, but for now, its "Know your basic cider"

BF2's system.reg as I have it, works online, sometimes; Note that the "ergc" lines are your serial number, not sure if rest is even neccessary, but I know it won't play online without "ergc", even in Windows. Look in a windows install for the correct lines for your version, mine has mods, and they work too. BTW, if you try to copy/paste these lines, it may fail. I am only posting to show the format. I added these to the bottom of the "system.reg" file in preferences. Note that once you run the app, it created a preferences folder, should be in your user folder. You will either have to delete this new folder, or alter the files inside it.

You're quite welcome, glad I could help.

Is small payback for all the great advice I've gotten on this board concerning my hackintosh.

For some reason mine still freezes. I deleted the pref files before I tried it again and it still didnt work. I used the parts of the registry except for the mods and added my own cd key.

Anyone got Counter-Strike Source working?

I have tried several non-steam versions, and I found one that "works" (google CSSfull_v28.rar :( )

But there is always a catch ;) The font rendering is not working, there is no text visible at all, which is very sad when the game actually runs pretty well. 100 fps, much better than Crossover and Parallels.

It also seams like some dx9 effects are working, but sometimes the framerate drops to 3 in special locations on the map, probably due to lack of dx9 shaders. This can probably be solved by setting the gfx level to 8, if you cold see that freekin' menu :o

I have tried to copy all fonts from my winows installation to the transgaming windows/fonts dir, but without success. Help appreciated.

Do you have the same version of BF2 as I, v1.41?

Are your video drivers fully working ie. QE/CI supported?

Is your firewall on?

As i said, it is best to copy the lines from your own Windows registry, then edit them to match Cider's format/syntax. Could be a minor version mismatch, I'd check just to be sure.

Do y'all think we ought to move this into all into the BF2 thread, get out of the way of others? Or keep it going here?

Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War - Dark Crusade

I have just managed to get this game working with the X3 cider. It took a bit of editing ini files, but it is now working ok.

lines I changed are below.
Once screenwindowed is set to 0, the movies actually playback properly. The only problem seems to be the cursor, but it is playable.

Sound is slightly stuttery (same as cedega on linux :( )

local.ini
[global]
screenheight=1024
screenrefresh=0
screenwidth=1280
screenwindowed=0
w40k.ini
screenwidth = 1280
screenheight = 1024
screenrefresh = 0
screenwindowed  = 0

Edit:

Update: If you use the gametap cider, there are no bugs at all. The cursor shows properly and the sound is perfect.

Runs ok, but camera seems to spin?

Seems to run better using Crossover in windowed mode.
(I know there's a native version, but I can't afford to buy the game again as I already paid for the windows & linux version).
