Yes. It runs using Wine. Runs great even given solid GPU & RAM. Note: Alt + Tab freezes the game. Tested on: OS X 10.10.5, SWTOR 6.0
1. Install Wine 2.0 & Winetricks (can install both using Homebrew in Terminal)
2. Use winetricks to install msvcp90=native d3dx9 vcrun2008 msls31 winhttp
3. Use wine to run SWTOR_setup.exe (installs your setup files)
4. Once setup finished add the following lines to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Electronic Arts/BioWare/Star Wars - The Old Republic/launcher.settings file using TextEdit:

Save the launcher.settings file.

5. Put swtor_fix.exe download from https : // github . com / aljen / swtor_fix (no spaces) into ~\.wine\drive_c\
6. Put SWTORLaunch.app into Applications from the .dmg file (same name) also downloaded from the link above.
7. Run SWTORLaunch.app to install SWTOR. The launcher pops up in a Wine window. (Note: game is Gigabytes big and takes ages to download)
8. Once install finished close SWTOR and the 2 Terminal tabs that are open (i.e, swtor_fix.exe and launcher.exe).
9. Open winecfg in a new Terminal. Under the 'Graphics' tab, tick the 'Emulate a virtual desktop' textbox, set Width & Height to your monitor's resolution and click Ok.
10. Open SWTORLaunch.app to run SWTOR. Note the launcher pops up in a Wine window. Just interact with it like you would on windows.

**SWTORLaunch.app (applescript) opens Terminal running swtor_fix.exe and launcher.exe in separate tabs - these two wine executables need to be running concurrently for SWTOR on MAC OS X to work. Please let me know if you have any issues with SWTORLaunch.app so I can update it. SWTOR on MAC has been running great for me. Even better on the 2012 MAC than the old PC.
