This version was created by the game's developers, and uses a customized Wine wrapper meant for OSX that has been reported to also work on Linux. Information on its performance is included here as a convenience to users; however, the customized version of Wine used in it is not supported here. Please do not file bug reports here if you have used it, and seek help for any problems from the vendor.
Game plays fine. Everything works.
Does crash here and there.
I have all video options on low on my Nvidia 7950gt running 1680x1050 resolution to get best frame rate I can.
What does not
Turning on 'Shadows' in video options slows the game too much.
What was not tested
Due to the nature of an MMO I cant have tried everything, but I have played it alot and all is well.
I tried most video options on higher settings, and while some didn't affect performance much, others did.
1- Sign up for free 10 day trial. 2- Download Mac/Wine Mini Beta Client. 3- Install AcetoneISO2 from repository. 4- Extract the .dmg image to a folder using AcetoneISO2 5- I had to override ntdll.dll and winhttp.dll to native or updater fails to ever finish downloading. Also override mmdevapi.dll to disabled or no sound in-game. 6- cd to Fallen Earth folder and 'wine FEUpdaterMac.exe' If the installer stalls just re-run it. Once done just click 'launch' to play. wine FEUpdaterMac.exe is the launcher. You must run it in order to start game. OPTIONAL- I installed winetricks and d3dx9 and got a nice performance boost out of it. OPTIONAL- You can stop using the overides for ntdll.dll and winhttp.dll and game will still work, but I guess next time the updater needs to download content they will need to be overridden again.
