  1. Steam Download For Mac Yosemite Park

The question probably speaks for itself. I know that they're Windows-based games, so inherently a copy of Windows must be available. That precludes using DOSBox, but would any of the following solutions (or others) work?

  1. Boot Camp with Windows 7?
  2. VMWare with a Windows version of the appropriate vintage?
  3. WINE? (Is WINE even available for Mac?)
  4. Profit! (Oh, wait ... Um ... Fill in #4 for me?)

How to Run Windows Programs on a Mac With Wine. Chris Hoffman @chrisbhoffman Updated July 3. That meant OS X El Capitan and Yosemite users needed to download version 1.8. You could install various versions of Internet Explorer if you needed to test websites with them on your Mac. The Windows version of Steam is available, and which. Steam for Mac has been updated with 64-bit support along with major design change and forward-facing features. The platform has also stopped using the pre-Yosemite windows button and now.

Details of the machine in question: MacBook 13', integrated 256M graphics, 4GB of RAM, 2GHz Intel Core Duo.

I personally attempted this a while back. I ended up buying the actual Mac version of the game:

As of November 2012, GOG started offering the games in Mac format. Both Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 were offered. This was probably be the best/most affordable way to get the games. Fallout Mac CDROMs on Amazon seem way much overpriced (due to their scarcity I assume).

Update 1/1/2014: Unfortunatelly GOG has removed all Fallout games from their catalog. As discussed on reddit this is probably due to Interplay's publishing rights on the franchise expiring. The games are now only available for download to those who have already purchased them. The games have also been removed from Steam and it is unclear whether/when a new distribution agreement will be made with Bethesda, who now holds the publishing rights.


Try installing WineBottler It's a nice frontend for Wine (which it brings with) and can package your game into a nice little .app.

FWIW, I was able to run Fallout with it. Didn't try Fallout 2, though.


Both Fallout 1 and 2 are now available as Mac versions from

  • Fallout 1:
  • Fallout 2:

Update: The Fallout games have been removed from the catalogue by the end of 2013 (due to legal issues with the owner of the Fallout franchise).The best way to play the games on a Mac now probably is to buy them on Steam and then use wine to run them in OSX...


Assuming you have or can get the necessary files (I downloaded mine from GOG, updated the Wineskin to be Yosemite compatible, and downloaded patches), you my also be interested in using the hi-res patch, which can be done using these excellent instructions for Mac. It worked for me.
