UPDATE: Paul the Tall no longer does Wineskins, so I've done a new DIY post lower down in the thread (here) which covers how to do all the necessaries. So I thought I'd stop being such a waste of space and actually try and contribute something worthwhile by making a guide of how you can get Arcanum running on a mac legally and easily using a Wineskin wrapper. I'll make it as simple as possible for new mac users, and if anyone has any alternate legal ways of installing Arcanum on a mac then they can stick them here as well as any other tweaks to make the game more playable on a mac. Installation Guide 1) Download a legal digital copy of Arcanum, I would recommend getting it at GOG and navigating to that site through the GOG tab on this forum as if you do terra-arcanum gets a small commission that helps cover running costs. I did try installing the game through my own hard copy but when it came to changing disks I couldn't get my mac to recognise the second disk - hence why I say you should get a digital download (if anyone has a way of installing it from the disks on a mac it would be much appreciated if you could share it). The GOG copy doesn't require a disk to be played, which means you don't have to download a crack or anything like that to get it working as you might with some games you play through a Wineskin wrapper. 2) Download a Wineskin wrapper for the game (they are free and safe to use), I would recommend the one from Paul the Tall's website which I'm going to assume you're using for the purposes of this guide. What a Wineskin wrapper essentially does (from my understanding) is make a little bubble of something that operates like windows on your mac - this is completely legal as Wine itself uses none of windows source code nor was it reverse engineered from it. 3) Open the Arcanum.dmg file you downloaded from Paul the Tall's website, and literally left click and drag the icon for Arcanum (which is called a Wineskin wrapper) onto your desktop (I wasn't used to the mac interface of doing stuff like this when I tried to install Arcanum, so this took me a little while to figure out, maybe I'm just a bit slow). Double click on this Wineskin wrapper and when prompted to point the installer to the your setup.exe you downloaded and go through the motions of installation as per usual. 4) Right click on the Arcanum Wineskin wrapper and go on show package contents. Double click on the Wineskin app found within and select "Advanced", then find the executable in the artificial C drive directory the package has made (mine is /GOG Games/Arcanum/Arcanum.exe). Once this is done, double click on the Wineskin and the game will play - it can be docked or put wherever you want it like any normal application. Enjoy. Notes: I'm not entirely sure if you need Wineskin Winery or Wine itself already installed (I had already installed them before installing Arcanum) so that the game runs, but if you find you do they're also both free. If anyone can clarify this matter, do say. Drog's UAP To install Drog's patch (found in the download's section here) simply copy and paste the patch.exe somewhere into the artificial C drive by again going onto show package contents for the Wineskin wrapper to access it as per step 4. Then using the same method in step 4 (selecting "Advanced" in the Wineskin app) change what is the path to game.exe to wherever you've put the patch.exe and quit out of the Wineskin app. Double click on it and the patch installation will be launched, once this is done change the exe path back to that of the game.exe and you can run the now patched Arcanum. I presume this method can be used for any patch you want to install. Tweaks To Aid Gameplay And Gameplay Notes The KeyRemap4MacBook app (which is also free) allows you to designate a key for "forward delete" not found on most mac keyboards, which is useful as it allows you delete waypoints on the world map (EDIT: or, as I found out, just right clicking on the world map can remove waypoints). Unfortunately it doesn't allow you to have numberpad that the game recognises so transferring amounts in game can be a bit slow (bullets, fuel, etc.) - if I find a solution for this I'll post it up, though for other games people suggest an external numberpad (if someone did have one and a mac, tell me if it works). Also if you hadn't figured it out, the cmd key takes the place of alt (as in it allows you to attack objects when held) on a mac. Other Installation Methods 1) Use Boot Camp to partition your hard drive and so that you can have access to your mac OS and windows OS on one machine (detailed here) - then install and play as you always would. The main drawback of this is you have to have a windows OS to install in the first place, and you have to select which OS you're running when you boot up (i.e. you can't have both running at once). 2) Use a windows emulator - legal ones again require a valid windows OS (e.g. VMware Fusion, Parallels). 3) Use CrossOver - essentially a tooled up version of Wine which you have to pay for. I don't have CrossOver so I can't really be specific on how the installation process would work, there's more about that specifically for Arcanum here on the codeweavers website. They'll also be a way to run the game through Wine, but really Wineskins are easier as someone has already done the hard work for you. Of course, why you would ever buy additional software and/or an additional OS when you can just buy Arcanum from GOG and run it legally and freely using the method I outlined is beyond a skinflint like me! Hopefully this will have been some use to someone, if the guide is confusing at any point or I haven't used the correct nerdy computer jargon then let me know and I'll change it.
