DDO on mac with wine - part 2 - Mountain lion
Mountain lion is out now, and i will upgrade to that, but i'm afraid it will break my DDO - wine install.
So this space is reserved for when i tackle that task.
Post updated with detail for mountain lion:
I have now upgraded to mountain lion and managed to get ddo working again, even with the bug introduced with U16.
The procedure is mostly the same so i'll only post those parts that are different, please see the post above for completion.
1. You still need the command line tools, but this time it's easier since you can just downloads them from the app store.
In the appstore look for Xcode, it's rather popular so easy to find, and even better it's free. Install this (it's big) and start up xcode from your launchpad or applications.
Once installed, go into preferences, downloads, components and install the command line tools.
Since mountain lion no longer comes with X11 you will need to install xQuartz. This is the apple supported open source version for x11 and can be downloaded from the xQuartz site.
Download and install like any program.
If you upgraded from Lion, and you had already installed xQuartz, you will need to remove it, download again and install a fresh one. This is to get rid of some bug that would give problems later.
2. Install macports just like on lion, but make sure to get the package for mountain lion instead.
3. see above
4. Same as above, but instead of the release version of wine, you need to install the development version. The latest development pack (1.5.18) has a fix for the bug that DDO introduced with U16.
sudo port install wine-devel
instead of just wine at the end.
5 and 6. see above
7. You still need pylotro to play ddl on wine, but unfortunately the website that hosted this program has gone.
I'm sure the program can be found out there, but if anyone knows a reliable link for it, please let me know so i can add it here.
new link: http://www.mcgillsociety.org/PyLotRo/
download is on the bottom
The rest of the installation is just the same as for lion, so see above.
Good luck getting it working and see you in game.
You can run DDO on ML in a VM
Parallels 8. It has DirectX 9/10 support and runs DDO at 60 FPS for me on an MBP13 2011.
