Yep, same here. I know it seems like a small thing but for me makes ground missions unplayable. I'll log in to do ship stuff but for any ground stuff I log in on my PC.

upgrade your machine and use the official Mac version... thats what I use... the Unofficial version isn't needed any more... this thread is pretty irrelevant unless you are trying to use a really old machine to play running 10.6, which isn't supported by the official version. If your machine has 10.6 and cannot upgrade to 10.9 (which is free), then it probably cannot handle STO very well anyways.

With the new season I cannot hear any audio and graphics problems (which was fine before season 9), anyone experience the same thing?

What the heck is the Unofficial Mac version?
Its a mac .app you can put the Windows version inside of, and run it on Mac OS X without having to install or use Windows! The final product looks and works like a normal Mac .app (for the most part). This download is a "wrapper" not the full game. You will have to either copy your installed version from Windows inside of it (fastest), or reinstall the game into it and do full patching and everything... More specifically, it is a Wineskin wrapper.

just a big note...

This is not made by or supported in any way by Cryptic Studios, Perfect World, or anyone associated with them... this is entirely fan made

System Requirements are the same as Windows version, since it uses the Windows version
It runs on Mac OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7, and OS X 10.8
Intel GMA950 and X3100 GPUs will not work correctly, or at all, but most other AMD, Nvidia, and Intel HD graphics should work.
Since the 1.6.0 update, GPUs are untested, and the wrapper is no longer using X11, so it is currently unknown what will not work right.

***Download link is at the bottom of this post***

If your crashing in Earth Space Dock, you need to try lowering down some graphic settings at least temporarily... turning on half resolution usually works while at ESD, maybe turning off other graphics settings... annoying I know...

Bajoran Fire Caves
Weird graphics bug here, that turns the screen gray. How to fix it? Set your graphics setting off of custom settings and set it down to bare minimum low settings... then you should be able to see everything. You can then turn all your graphics settings back up and it should remain fine while your there...

Click here to get STO Unofficial Mac Version 1.5.1 (Uses X11)
Click here to get STO Unofficial Mac Version 1.6.0 (Uses experimental Wine Mac Driver)

(Direct download links hosted through Dropbox.com)
The download comes with directions on how to use this wrapper
double click the .zip file to unzip it, it will give you a folder with the wrapper, and directions.

Backup Download Link at Mediafire-->All STO UMV versions made are available here

If you have mouse movement and click issues, and /or typing issues, try this...
  • Open the launcher.
  • Click on Options on the top right.
  • In Advanced command line, enter the following:
  • -enablerawinputsupport 0
  • Click OK and launch the game as usual.
Shouldn't this thread be moved to the "Mac: PC, Network, and Other Technical Issues" category?
