* A full playthrough of the game
* Bring Down the Sky DLC
What does not
* Mouse input (Bugs 16822 and 6971)
* Dynamic Shadows look "wrong" as they tend to be inappropriately placed on character's faces.
* Several armors look "more grey" than they should, such as the C-Sec Armor, Garrus' and Wrex's defaults, and Nihilus' just to name the most obvious examples.
* Rachni look white or green, except for the queen, who looks normal.
What was not tested
* Other DLC which I do not own.
Graphical problems are probably caused by the Mac OS X OpenGL and X11 implementations being incomplete. I have yet to test whether I can reproduce these bugs under Linux or another OS. Applying this mouse patch will deal with both 16882 and 6971: http://bugs2.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=32614 If you use that patch, be sure use builtin dinput8 and set "MouseWarpOverride" in the wine registry to "force-box". With a patched version of Wine, the game gets a rating of at least Silver. If you want better graphical performance, disable-glsl in the wine registry. Also, using d3dx9 winetricks helps too.

Get audio to work
Edit "Documents/BioWare/Mass Effect/Config/BIOEngine.ini"
Add the following under the "[ISACTAudio.ISACTAudioDevice]" section:
Ensure "Hardware Audio" is turned off in Sound settings in game
To get the MEUITM installer to work
A custom MassEffectModder.exe must be suppliedThis is seemingly due to it using functions not fully implemented in wine/mono
A hacky, usable version can be found here: https://github.com/DougTy/Mass...
Occasional "rendering exception" error while playing MEIUTM requires your game's binary be large address aware.
MassEffect.exe can be patched using this tool: https://www.techpowerup.com/fo...
Make a backup before patching!
