  1. That's why I'm building an hackintosh these days... I gave up on wrapper. Before the new one 2.xx everything was fine, the problems came up once WG dropped Vindovs XP support.
  2. Thanks Doc! But I went to Codeweaver site and couldn't find any release notes... And couldn't even login last night to ask in Forum. So could you or some other player registered to Codeweaver, ask for release notes of every new release? It will be useful to know which bug or improvement they put in or fixed in 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 Thank you!
  3. Great and thanks Glig! I finished my air cans a couple of years ago, didn't buy any yet, but I will! So I went online to look how to do it without and saw a video on a 2011 iMac (that's mine... I always thought was a 2010) and he was using a brush and a vacuum cleaner. So I did, as my vacuum is quite powerful and played 5/6 battles with temps never more than 60/62 deg. While before were going easily to 70. But today also, after finally some rain, the air is much fresher than last week. You have same iMac but bigger screen as my wife and sun, we pick up the i7 one, with a nvdia 1GB. No ssd. Refurbished from Apple Store. I had crashes also there, but it's months that my sun don't play it. The thing of the Hack is to play pc wows and wop, all the rest on the mac hack disk. Os X till far superior than any Vindov version!! But if you play with a 2014 and like the latest Os X then you can buy or build a much more powerful Hackintosh than mine! The fact that I don't like other than S.Leopard and M.Lion for game and java stuff is a big limit, but... Take care, have a nice wend! UPDATE! It was an illusion... at night I loaded my usual Mod's set up without compressed textures... 2 battles and crash! Temp was fine max 61/62 Cpu less the Gpu, but the PSU is steady at 55/6 and that's the problem of my restarts... Back to yesterday set up with Compressed text 12% and it works as before. That's means less fan but more battles w/out crash. I also lost the last GPU 960 I was to order for the Hack... bad night... despite the 200% xp... I'll buy the air on monday!
  4. Hi Glig, but where did u blow and which version of iMac u have, because mine has some holes grid under the screen and a long hole on top where the hot air come out when you push fan speed. So while waiting for the hack parts to arrive I can solve some problems...
  5. I don't know where u live, but here in southern EU is a hot July, no rain... I have the 21.5" vers of your iMac same GPU. Mine even restart for itself for protection... so once I'm back in the battle, I'm almost dead and the allies insult me as a AFK... But I understand... That's why I'm done with iMacs (ours have a problem with ventilation system, it seems that the cpu fan is pushing hot air towards the PSU (!) that eventually stop for safety and restart the mac... So, instead of buying an old beloved Mac pro tower second hand, I'm building an Hackintosh. Today it's quite easy to install OS X on a pc if you follow the guides and assemble following Buyer's guide for each version you like. You can even order an Hackintosh ready to go in UK and US. I do not want the modern OS X so I'll build a pc around 10.8.5 ( I love Snow Leopard but...). You can have a perfect working dual boot Hackintosh for half the cost of a recent i Mac, with i7 cpu, Nvidia 1060/80 6/11GB Vram, hdmi, thunderbolt and plenty of SSD and ram. Water cooling and so on. So I'll play Wows on a PC that permit me also to play Public Tests with no hassle. But my last readings on both Us and Eu forums, is that GPU is not the main problem, the problem is CPU. It looks that Wows make an intensive use of CPU resources and because of that, of the system disk used for swapping ram also. So with an Hackintosh with 2 SSD (Pc and Mac) and 16/32 GB of Ram, i7 quad overclocked to 4Ghz, should be fine to play with almost the max setting in Graphics. For the GPU I can't have the new one because of Mountain Lion compatibility, so I'll get a Nvdia 960 4GB. Total cost a bit more than a 1000 euro, with the best ram and ssd. Because I'm not happy to play with low settings and as I posted, with the excellent Mod (that works) of Compressed textures of 12%... This game is nice also on the rendering side so why not enjoying! Here my Bism that almost lost the textures with that Mod... but I can play 5/8 battles at least. I'll post here when I 'll have my first battle on it.
  6. 0.6.8

    Description: on a CV can't control, at all, any squadrons except Fighters, not even the CV itself UPDATE: it was a control setting problem. Don't know why, but resetting to default solved. Sory.
  7. 0.6.8

    One picture says it all: impossible to do anything that has to do with Credits, Doubloons, ... around 01 am 8 July..
  8. Just a final thought: I might think about an Hackintosh one of this days... in the US forum there are players unable to play with nvdia card with 2 GB vram...
  9. 0.6.8

    Not really a bug here, I'm not able to play at all on a Mac. Downloaded everything fine, checked integrity, but when I press start the game closes not even loading the first page... Changed client with the 2.0.4 version same results. Do I miss something? Does 6.8 introduce new code that require Codeweaver to work on it? UPDATE: It works in Bootcamp, so must be some Codeweavers additional problem here, wine related... maybe too much of italian red one!
  10. It seems working, played 8 battles on Tier IV Random. Texture compression 12%. But I can't be sure until bloody Vodafone repair the fiber connection... tomorrow is a week without... ridiculous... italian incompetence in tech in its best evidence! Playing with a data sim on an ipad as modem 4G, doesn't work for this game... huge lag, freezes, very hard to play. Update 7/7 Fiber connection back again! I can confirm that PT doesn't work at all on mac as I can play it on bootcamp... not with medium settings either... But please have a look at this US forum... wow... they are bloody upset on the other side of the Ocean!... it's at the end of page 9... they suggest him to come to EU forum.... can't believe it!
  11. Tried with a new, clean, install with the latest release. I had a crash, but I can't say is just the app because I had problems with power supply and fiber connection last week... One thing is for sure: the CPU/GPU demand is very high in the latest releases so I think for GPU with "just" 512Mb vram isn't easy and increase power demand also. Hope tomorrow they'll finally fix the fiber (I'm playing using iPad 4G connection, that's works fine only with Co op or Ranked because fewer ships...). For the power supply of the building I've no hope than going to a lawyer... the flat owners are just so bad here in this thief's town...!
  12. Same happens to me but with Publict Test reawrds, sometimes are not delivered at all, other just one out of three! No hope... after 3 months
  13. Thanks Doc! I'll give a try!
  14. I was wondering about the settings: does anybody try to use the mod from Aslain "compressed textures for weak computers"? I might give it a try to see if can work on a simulated pc game on a mac... And to Diesis: whcih model of macbook you have? If you look under the top left apple there is a Info on this mac that tells you Macbook Pro 15,2 or whatever number. Just to see which GPU you have on.
