Does it work better to use any of the other products based on Wine with the windows client? I have TERRIBLE performance on a macbook pro, but rebooting into bootcamp makes the performance fantastic.

I just don't know what to do to make the performance acceptable. It's maybe half the fps it is under XP on the same hardware.

Use bootcamp. The official EVE client is actually a prepackaged WINE with EVE, so WINE won't work much better.

Based on how things are going for the Linux guys, EVE would probably work great under the latest version of WINE (1.0) if it wasn't for the fact that OpenGL support is completely FUBAR under the Mac version of WINE right now.

No.

Wine and cider are two different things.

Think William Darkk is largely right:
Quote:
Cedega
TrangsGaming's flagship product, Cedega, is a proprietary fork of Wine for running Microsoft Windows games on Linux. There are games that run on Cedega but not on Wine, and games that run on Wine but not Cedega.

Cider
The company has recently made available a new product called Cider which is a technology marketed towards developers that allows Windows games to run on Mac OS X.

Yes, cider is based on wine, but it isn't wine. It is a proprietary fork of wine, like you said. Not that you know the difference between proprietary and open source, though.

actually due to the quite large differences between mac and linux cider is much further away from wine then you would think.

The mac port of wine, is still in its infancy. It can barely run applications. which would lead me to believe that the cider thing might have somewhat the same architecture but is quite a different thing then wine.
