What works

Mac OS X Host

Game installs fine.
Game won't run though.
Installing a no CD crack makes the game runnable....almost
Next run winecfg and turn on "Emulate a virtual desktop"
Now the game will run without a problem

What does not

Everything worked once I used the work around, but it looks like the game couldn't detect its own CD hence the no CD crack.


What was not tested

Everything that I know of was tested, played the game for an hour or so.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

OT but it would be nice if I could set up .exe files to auto run under wine in OS X but I haven't figured out how to do that since I barely know macs as it is my girlfriend's computer Also I got this form macports wine-devel 1.1.25
