I tried Arx Fatalis, but it says something about game files being missing... I think it needs the registry entries, but I don't know how to import them to Cider.


You have to copy the keys manually from either CrossOver user.reg/system.reg in the ~/Library/Application Support/CrossOver/Bottles/??? folder and copy them into the user.reg/system.reg file in the Preferences folder of Arx Fatalis. It's quite annoying. Just don't copy and replace the files as I've found it will just crash Cider.

set driver to opengl, and it allows me to run it in a window now properly, works great.

but, for some reason there is HUGE mouse lag now, i move my mouse in one direction, the pointer follows it. feels more like a joystick than a mouse now :(((

why do i have to push it around like that :P

I had about 20 minutes of relaxation today and I tried out Far Cry 1.40 under the 983 version of Cider. I get an awesome mouse response under CrossOver 6.2.0 and no menus but semi crappy mouse response under Cider (983). I'm going to try it out tonight when I get home from my last final. As Cider would be much better than using CrossOver. I have an idea on what it could be.

I will also be testing out a bunch of games really soon. Because now I have all the free time until late January.

exactly. mouse/cursor worked great under crossover, but no menus, and crappy (as expected) framerate.

would run fantastic with cider but just have mouse issues

I have an idea on what it could be.

Well, I get it working a little better then it gets worse. It seems to be the X axis and not the Y axis that gets all messed up. I'm going to have to figure this out. I got the EVE Online version of Cider loading Far Cry but it just sits there at the black screen. So I'm going to try a bunch of different version of Cider. Oh man this is just TOO much fun..... But tonight is my relax and party night. So tomorrow will be my full force testing every game I can. There is hope but it's going to be a long haul.

also while you're testing i suggest you set graphics it to lowest settings just to be sure.

it didn't load for me originally with all settings high.

I've been trying a bunch of games and here what I have so far.

Unreal Tournament 3 - I've tried for a little bit but I'm not too worried as they are making a native apple port

Grand Theft Auto San Adreas - Works perfectly. There was a mouse problem in the start of the menu but it works perfectly during the game. Might have an idea why.

Far Cry - I've actually had good results with this. I've had various results with 983 like the mouse working and not working and using Direct3D9 the loading doesn't work at all. OpenGL works just fine but can't get a true fullscreen. Using a older version of Cider the mouse works perfect and using OpenGL fullscreen works. So I'm going to figure out what to do.

Crysis - CrossOver won't install this game but I installed WINE 0.9.50. using the darwinports and I'm hoping that it will work that way. It's saying there are Game DLL files missing and I don't want to figure out which ones, so hopefully this way is easier.

I am kinda new to cider stuff, i managed to get Everquest I running under cider, the BIG Problem is that there are NO FONTS/NO Text in the game, i managed to login blind, gfx is very smooth, mouse is smooth and just like under windows.

I tried to get Fonts working via registry and tried different approached of giving the path in the registry to the fonts

The "nice" thing in everquest is is, you can go into Options Menue and select a Font to use, there is NO FONT at all shown, so the problem really seems to be, that everquest cant "see" any of the fonts in windows/fonts (copied alot of fonts in there)

would be really really great if anyone knew a trick how i get the Fonts problem fixed

Hi there! Could anyone post a detailed step-by-step instructions how I can port Battlefield 2 to Mac OS using Cider?

I have downloaded the newest version of Gametap, copied my whole BF2 directory into Resources/Transgaming/c_drive, modified Gametap's plist so that it points to the /bf2 directory and the bf2.exe. I also exported my whole Windows XP registry using regedit and used it to replace Gametap's system.reg in /HD/Library/Preferences/Gametap Preferences.

When I now try to start Gametap/BF2, the icon jumps in the Dock, it pops up a black screen and then it crashes.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Hi, I have GTA SA ciderized by someone that I took from thepiratebay. Do you know how can I update the cider of this GTA SA.app to this new version that works with mouse?

I copied "Frameworks" and "MacOS" folders from this Oblivion.app and corrected the Version.plist, but now Gta icon justs blinks on the dock and close..

How did you got GTA SA working?

Thanks

I tried Morrowind without success. I tried to manually copy the registration keys, the icon just bounces on the dock and disappears.

I got Morrowind working nicely under Parallels. It uses a launcher app to set some basic settings.
