That's absolutely brilliant!
How did you do it?
I noticed that the change from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 dropped around 80MB in size.
But whatever it was, it's a flipping miracle, because now I can run at 1920x1200 (external display) with detail setting 9 on my 2007 MBP with the 8600M GT. And it looks fantastic.
My only complaints are that occasionally there's a hiccup when the game changes angle or something and the audio goes a little out of sync. But it's far from a big deal compared to what was going on before.
BTW, no idea what you mean about the game wrapper, Get Info on the app shows 220.127.116.11 for the new version.
