Default Running WMMA4 on Mac (using wine)

Hello fellow forumers!

If people are interested I am going to post a quick tutorial below on how to run WMMA4 on mac using wine. Its actually a fairly easy process and I have a fully functioning version of WMMA4 on my mac.

Here is a step-by-step process:

1) Download wine from the following link:

http://winebottler.kronenberg.org

2) Open wine

3) Click on the wineglass on the upper task bar and select "wine tricks" on the drop down box.

4) Check off the following wine tricks: (if you have trouble try doing each individually as opposed to all of them together)

a) internet explorer 6 (ie6)
b) visual basics 6 (vb6run)
c) jet40
d) native_oleaut32 [this is optional and won't always be needed but doesn't hurt]

5) Follow the installation process for each of these.

6) Once completed the game should open and work perfectly. There is one minor issue that sometimes occurs due to "tick boxes" in the game (this is known as the infamous "ovsbooleancontrols error"). In order to fix this go to Finder and put "ovs" into the search bar. A file will appear that is named "ovs..." (the ... represent some random letters/symbols). Simply right-click this file, click get info, and rename it: ovsbooleancontrols.ocx

7) If you followed all these steps correctly you will have no issues installing, opening, or running WMMA4 on mac. Enjoy!

8) If you have any issues or questions just ask and I'll try my best to answer

You are an angel man, thank you so much! For patching, do you just replace the .exe in the wine file with the patched .exe?

e: That is to say, I use WineBottler to set up the apps.

I don't use wine bottler with GDS games. However, I am pretty sure what your saying is that you can see the content of the bottled app, then the .exe file is in there? Yes, thats all you would need to do

Your welcome. Hope this helps people out!

Yes exactly. I'm not sure if I've done it right though - how do I know if I'm playing with an updated game? What are the telltale signs?

When you first open the game and are on the home screen, look at the top edge of the screen. It should say "World of Mixed Martial Arts 4: Trial Version/Public Beta, Patch #x

If the patch number is not the one that you put in then you did something wrong.

An installation bar doesn't pop-up once you click apply?

It opens a page to

and then says "Prefix creation exited with error"

You have to install the thing on that link. Then try prefixing the jet40 wine trick again. Let me know if that works.

So you downloaded it and it still didn't work? Cause it should automatically install into the correct and you shouldn't have to manually place it. I thats what your saying I will look around for that file but I have a feeling you did something wrong because I never had that issue

EDIT: I guess I should say that I had an issue installing Jet40 because it kept opening that website but all I needed to do was install the component on the website and then retry Jet40 and everything worked fine.

Capelli King I haven't ever played the game on PC but all the features work correctly so no, there isn't any difference at all. Its the exact same game
