RaidCall for Mac

This page is kept for archive purposes. I’ll not update RaidCall, and will not make any new version.

Sorry, but you have to ask RaidCall official team!

Welcome to RaidCall for Mac (v7.3.4-2 last update: 2014/04/16)

(for Mac OS X 10.6 and later)

I don’t use RaidCall anymore, this project is mostly abandoned, if I have spare time I try to keep this updated, but don’t plan on this version

Before post any angry comments please read the full story. I’m not affiliated in any way with RaidCall. If you are angry, show it to RaidCall. I just spend my spare time to make a Mac compatible client for their crap. Unfortunately I have to work to pay bills, so its not guaranteed that this package will be updated immediately when RC releases a new version. I’m not using RaidCall and never will. I cannot give any support.

As RaidCall dropped Macintosh support in their software, I’ve made a modified Windows version (a custom Wine wrapper around it), which runs on Mac(!!!).

It can be downloaded from here (New, 7.3.4-1 version, should work with Mac OS X >= 10.6, this is a test version.)

The way how PTT worked RaidCall is killed by Apple in Mac OS X 10.9. This version CAN be used in Push To Talk mode in earlier versions of OS, however it’s really untested, and not working 100%.
Enable access for assistive devices must be check in Universal Access system preference, to make PTT work!

First launch can be very long (up to 5 minutes) without any progress indication, please be patient!
If RaidCall crashes, start it with Alt key pressed, there you can resets RaidCall preferences (that usually helps)
I’ve also added a Chnage Engine settings button to the Alt key startup page, where you can reach Wine configuration. That is mainly useful if you wan’t to install a newer version of raidcal into the wrapper. Here is how you can do it:
1. Download latest RaidCall windows version from
2. Start RaidCall app with Alt key pressed.
3. Select Change Engine settings
4. Press Install Software
5. Press Choose Setup Executable
6. Select the exe file what you have downloaded in step 1.
7. Finish the installation (Next, Next, Finish)

Current status of PTT mode:
Initial PTT code has been inserted, so it should work somehow. Only keyboard key can be used for PTT and there are some limitations:
– Doesn’t work on Mac OS X Mavericks!
– Command key is recognized as Alt, and alt key’s are not working.
– If you press Alt-Command-Q key it will quits RaidCall, even if it’s running in background.

This is an alpha version, may contains serious bugs, use at your own risk.

Overlay not working, and probably never will. Once I’ve finished the PTT issue I’ll check that again.

Updates are ENABLED in this version, but be carefull, any update MAY kill the Mac version.

My RC account have been banned ( I really don’t care, but FuckYou RaidCall, worst support ever! )

    Great work getting this to work on Mac. I was wandering if there is a way to fix it so the push to talk button would work while not in RaidCall. When I go into a game the push to talk won’t work anymore. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you for your time.

  4. Tim says:

    Thank you bro, for your job! And yes, Fuck you Raid call!

  6. George says:

    When I enter a groups number to join them, it just says access denied and that I need to apply, however there is nowhere to apply for group membership.

  7. Erry says:

    Taracque have you been able to find out what causes the mic’s to skip or lag when on free talk. People say that my mic cuts in and out all the time. I know its only for raidcall because on skype, vent, etc it works fine. I have my sensitivity completely off so my mic is always live yet people say i cut out all the time.

    Thanks for all your work man

  8. Dan says:

    Thanks so much for this; works awesome!

  9. Bia says:

    The free-talk mode doesn’t work, and the push to talk button just work while in RaidCall. When I go into a game the push to talk won’t work anymore… 🙁 And System Preferences \ Universal Access \ Enable Access for Assistive Devices is already checked!

    What can i do?

  10. Seiuro says:

    Nice work, i only have a little problem to leave de application, y have to force de exit to close it. thanks for your effort (the oder thing was the ptt but i will try what you post above )

  11. josh says:

    Let me start out by saying I greatly appreciate your efforts in allowing us mac users the oppurtunity to use Raid call software. The raid call software starts up great on my mac thanks to your efforts. However whenever i try to do a search or any customization i get an error it and the porgram locks up. It tries to give me a send error report but even that seizes up. Any insight that might help with this

  12. When I follow the install instructions, I get as far as step 6. Then the window says wineskin is currently busy. Been that way for 30 min now.

  13. Pat says:

    I cannot join any group chats it bugs out and freezes on the group loading bar.

  14. Bro…can’t get this to work. I’ve downlaoded it, have Mac Version 10.8.5, have RC 7.2.6 from this page. Followed instructions. But once i am loaded into the RC, when i try to put the info of ANYONES channel, says, loading room number, then it just gets stuck on that screen and jumps to “Uh Oh, RaidCall Crash” screen. Then, if i try to run it again, it will have the crash window plus another error window that says “Search failed. Please try again ” . I don’t know what to do, i’ve tried everything.

  15. Klipik12 says:

    Can’t search for any groups, and if I try to join anything by channel ID it crashes on me. Any suggestions?

  16. Jarff says:

    All is working perfectly, but when i type in anything, the smae texte will automatically type in raidcall. is there any way to fix this?

  18. Renato says:

    Hi Taracque!
    I don’t know if this is still active but how long it takes till the installation is finished (7.)??
    It appears “wineskin is currently busy. Please wait…” for half an hour or more…

    Thanks for your help

  19. Javier says:

    noww don’t runs ever,it need to be actualized

  20. Rick says:

    OK, running OS 10.9, installed RaidCall per your instructions. I get the window, but there are only 2 tabs – Groups and Contacts. There is no way to join an existing group and the other 2 tabs shown on the Raidcall site are missing.
    I also get a loading error for some functions, not certain what as they don’t load. It could be the Raidcall to Facebook linkup.

    Hi! In this step “6. Select the exe file what you have downloaded in step 1.” when I went to choose the file it doesn’t select. What can I do? Thank you.

  26. Sheepy says:

    I can use PTT, but only when the rc window is the active one. Doesn’t work when it’s minimized, or I have another window active.

    • Taracque says:

      Can you please post some more details? OS version? Do you have any crash logs? What crash means, is it simply closes, or displays an error message?

      • Anonymous says:

        I am having the same problem. I’m using 10.8.5. For me, I can log in, and chat with people, but I can’t enter a room. I double click on the room, it says “loading room #”, and then the progress bar freezes and a window pops up saying raidcall has crashed, with the option to send a report.

    It seems to work ok for me, but the voices of other people are very laggy and choppy sounding, any way to fix this?

    • Taracque says:

      There is a maintenance on RaidCall server which last till April 2, 2014 (UTC), maybe that affect the sound quality.

  35. Paola says:

    This isn’t a big deal but I can’t add the prof. picture or connect to facebook. I love this program btw thank you so much for doing this!

  36. Leah S says:

    Yea, I’ve got 10.9.2 and when you try to open it a message pops up saying ” ‘RaidCall’ can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.”

    Is there any way for you to update your RaidCall for the latest Mac versions?

    • Taracque says:

      Just Right Click on it and select open from the contextual menu. This is needed for the first time only, later you can open it via double click.

  37. Anonymous says:

    Hello, thanks for the application! I was wondering if there was any way to fix the choppy audio. Even after the maintenance the audio is still laggy and choppy. Also my audio comes off with some static when I use my headset with an external USB sound card and I would like to know how to fix the problem.

    Thank you!

  38. Cravitz says:

    I can’t connect to any server. If i do it fails. Crashes in some way… I have the latest mac update. All that happens is that a box comes up saying sorry. Do you want to report this and so on. Then the loadinbar freezes and I need to force the program in to shut down.

    • K3rman says:

      i had the same problem, if you have a Razor Mouse just uninstall Razer Synapse program, Synapse contains modified audio drivers which interferes with wine as global.

    Im experiencing the same problem with joining a room and raidcall crashing, I also found out that if you click on the setting tab it crashes as well. Theres a pop screen of raidcall uhoh it crashed but no other detail than that

    Is there a way to fix the laggy mic?

    Thank you.

  41. JLR says:

    When there is an update to fix the choppy mic in the audio the mac user hears, please let us know. Everyone can hear me clear, but the incoming audio is choppy like a bad cell phone call about to drop out.

    • JLR says:

      Also, this is on the newest version on the page here that is listed.

    • Stephanie says:

      I’m having the same issue. I just installed the newest version and while everyone can still hear me clearly like before, all of the audio I hear is very choppy.

  42. Elmore says:

    I just got this for a mac, and the audio I am receiving is not good, and can barely be understood, can you update us on here when/if there will be a fix for this please.

    • Taracque says:

      Can you please check the followings:
      – In Audio Midi setup try change the settings of the output (try 44.1Khz, as well as 96Khz)
      – In RaidCall Audio Settings try to set the Menually Adjust setting, and turn everything of.
      Please let me know if that helps!

      • Vivian says:

        I had a similar problem with distorted audio and this suggestion worked! Thank you

      • Shiny Lulu says:

        Changing everything in Raidcall Audio Settings worked. Thanks!

      • Shiny Lulu says:

        Changing everything in Raidcall Audio Settings worked. Thanks! Is there any way that we could have Flash! E or whatever it is? It stops us from changing announcements.

      • William says:

        Hey taracque, I have the same issue… I tried the Audio Midi setup, and it still doesn’t work :\ Do you know of any other methods that could also possibly work?

      • Adri says:

        Set manually and Set everything off and it will be fixed, Thanks bro

  43. Matthew says:

    Hey Taracque! I’ve had great experiences with this Raidcall wrap in the past, but now I can’t join any group! I’ve tried to reset the preferences, and update using the windows version, but the same crash screen appears every time! Do you have any suggested fixes I can attempt or am I screwed?

    • Taracque says:

      You can only try the latest version maybe that helps. Sorry, but RaidCall refused to give me help on any issues, and my time is limited to clean their shit.
      Only thing I can suggest is to leave RaidCall if you can 🙁
