I have been able to update my mac version of BF2142 to 1.51. It took a fair amount of time to get it to work correctly but seems like everything is cool including punk buster! If you are patient follow these steps and you should be able to also update your version of BF2142. Warning this is not an easy process and I take no responsibility if you totally stuff your BF2142.

For those that really want to update follow these steps.

1. Make sure your BF2142 is updated to the latest 1.50 patch.
2. Download the PC version of 1.51 update (make sure it is the 2.0GB one NOT the 1.3GB)
3. Download Wineskin from here - http://wineskin.doh123.com/tiki-index.php?page=Downloads
4. Install Wineskin, Click the Update button and wait for it to update
5. In wineskin press the + button to install new engine I used WS8WineCSX10.1.1
6. Download this wrapper file from here - https://public.me.com/madmac73
7. Unzip the wrapper file and put it in home/applications/wineskin/BF2142 Update.app
8. Right Click BF2142 update.app - Show package contents/drive_c/Program Files/Electronic Arts/EA Games/Battlefiled 2142 - keep this open and open a new finder window.
9. Go to your mac version of BF2142 right click - Show package contents/Contents/Resources right click Battlefield 2142.app - Show package contents/Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/Battlefield2142 - HOLD DOWN OPTION KEY and copy all of these files to location in step 8.
10. Go to the 1.51 update exe file right click and select open with and browse to the wrapper file (BF2142 update.app)
11. The installer will run and do the 1.51 update.
12. Go to home/applications/wineskin/BF2142.app and double click it. Click Advanced and then Browse and go to Electronic Arts/EA Games/Battlefield 2142/BF2142.exe - Click Choose and then quit.
13. Double click the BF2142.app and BF2142 1.51 should start up. Just check that it has updated and then quit.
14. After you have run it once through wineskin as in step 13 - copy the 1.51 updated files by right clicking BF2142 update.app - show package contents/drive_c/Program Files/Electronic Arts/EA Games/Battlefield 2142 to your mac version of BF2142 (same file path as in step 9 make sure to overwrite all of the old version files with the 1.51 versions.
15. You should now be able to run your new mac version BF2142 v1.51! Start the game from your Mac version.

6. Download this wrapper file from here - https://public.me.com/madmac73

The WRAPPER is not available since Apple does not have "me" anymore, they have iCloud! I would love it, if you could repost it somewhere like on mediafire or something.
