Default BF2/PRBF2 Mac OS with Wine

Anyone ever done this ? I have a new rMBP with home-brew, wine, winetricks.

I managed to install BF2, 1.41 and 1.5 updates, and PRBF2, however they either launch with wine and freeze on a white screen at launch, or PRBF2.exe asks me to start PRLauncher.exe, which says:

"MacBook-Pro:bin $ wine PRLauncher.exe
The entry point method could not be loaded"

I haven't installed anything else but these things or done any sort of tweaking or anything.

My other option is to install Windows on an external bootable USB HDD..

If anyone knows how to do either one please help on here or PM or Steam me!

Update:

I've got single player BF2 1.5 working.

PRBF2.exe launches and works, but cannot communicate with PRLauncher.exe

PRLauncher.exe will not launch and says:

"MacBook-Pro:bin $ wine PRLauncher.exe
The entry point method could not be loaded"

It seems that if I can get PRLauncher.exe to work with PRBF2.exe I can make this work, not sure about multiplayer yet, but one step at a time.

Any help ?

Update #2:

Installed .NET framework with winetricks.

PRLauncher.exe now launches but freezes right away at the PR dog tags and goes no further.

Absolutely will not work.

Use Boot Camp.

Funny thing, I tried to get PR working on my linux machine. Does not work since wine does not support WPF at all. And WPF is used in PRlauncher, so bad luck on that one. The really funny part is that "back in the day" first punkbuster made problems and now it runs flawlessly.

I got it pretty dam close to working, just the PRLauncher.exe that stopped me as describe, I never got past my last update.

Any ideas ?

What is WPF and how can we work around that ?
