Welcome to the “Mass Effect” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port this game so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application.
Great news! Mass Effect is already available in the Porting Kit. Porting Kit is the new application which “ports” the game to your Mac. The video and download links in the slider are outdated and won’t work on OS X 10.11+. To fix/update it, install the game with the Porting Kit visit its page here. Or use the crosstie with the Crossover application.
In Mass Effect you take the role of Commander Shepard starship Normandy, the last hope for all life in the Galaxy. Saren, a rogue member of the elite and untouchable Spectre agents, has discovered the secret to unleashing an apocalyptic force upon the galaxy, and only you stand in his way. To save the lives of billions, you must do whatever it takes to stop Saren and prevent the return of an ancient force bent on the destruction of all organic life.
Mass Effect has 2 versions. One: The not working Origin version (because of the malfunctional Origin in Wine) and the Working Steam version for which this port is created. So make sure you have the good version when try to run it in Crossover and the Portingkit. I tested the game for a while and works quite well on my Nvidia 640M 512mb GFX iMac. I made the port available as Crosstie and for the Portingkit. So for the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here… and to learn more about Crossover go here…
