It's been two months, I'd be patient.

For Napoleon: Total War, I believe the Mac version came out the other month, and the game was originally release multiple years ago.

This is however, I imagine a worse case scenario. Granted, it's a different developer, different studio.

It's just one of those things, it might be tomorrow, it might be next year. I have doubts as to it being during the summer sale however, as there is usually no new releases for the duration. Mac re-releases might not count, however.

Again, I feel your pain, I hate waiting for things, but there is nothing to be done but wait.

Final note, I am unsure on the details, legality or possibility of this, but is it not possible to run Windows programmes on Mac through a programme named Wine? It might be Linux I'm thinking of, but it's worth looking into, and possibly testing with steam, and a game you already own. More risky, but, could work for the short term. Again, do the research, I wont be held responsible for anything bad happening I'm afraid :)

Wargame EE fot its Mac port a very long time after its release, as all of the effects have to be reworked and etc(MAC/Liux use openGL, PC uses DirectX). W:EE got its MAc port about 6 months after release? About that much. Deal with it. Mac gamers are a small majority, be happy they are making the game available on the Mac.

Glad to see the myth of Mac users being entitles babies is being put to rest...(rolls eyes)...

1) Load bootcamp on OSX: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1461

2) Install a copy of Windows

3) Buy Wargame

4) Play and cease complaining about not being able to solve simple problems.

Just like Linux gamers, OSX ones have to deal with being a minority if they wish to use their OS of choice. Such is life for anyone of a minority userbase.

You're right, I must be patient. It's just that they've been promising it for a while now and it still hasn't come out.

Yeah. I hate how people disregard our awesome race. Im not a big gamer so I wont nerd rage when a game isnt for mac, but if the engine is supported, then why not do it asap. There is a demand, and there is profit in it.

They are not a big company so that have to pick an order to do things in...PC is first as there as WAY WAY more profit in that...

There's an OpenGL beta option in the latest patch, so all the windows users can help by running that and submitting bug reports so that the Linux and iOS versions come more quickly!

I think the problem is that it was said that it would be available for Mac upon release, and there is a deception that it isn't, and people are getting frustrated. I also don't want to have a partition on my little 512gb ssd just to run one videogame. I use my computer pretty much just for work and to stream some movies or music, with the exception of one or two games I play on occasion, and have exactly what I need. I don't want to make anything more complicated than it has to be.

I can understand the frustration. It would be nice if we could at least get an update on how things are going, or have somebody tell us if they are planning on having it out in the near future or not so we don't have to keep checking every other week and be disappointed at each occasion.

For me, the biggest concern is that there isn't any clear communication coming from Eugene (if there is, please forgive me, but I have not found it). I just bought the EE + AB summer deal, and I'm new to the game. I was going to wait for the game to come out in Mac, and have been waiting for a while now, checking in here and there to see how it stands, and the only reason I got it is because of the summer deal, so now I'm just happy I can play EE. However, that's not the normal circumstance, and I will eventually grow tired of it, so if I have to wait for 6+ months to get a port for a game that I purchased under the impression that they are really working hard to get out for Mac, I will certainly be quite disappointed.

Just wait, the game isn't going anywhere. There will be sales in the future. At least the developers are trying, they have a small team unlike some other developers and still willing to port to linux and mac. ☻
mrPrimetime Jul 16, 2013 @ 3:47pm 
It would be nice if we could actually contact them to see when it is estimated to be finished

Oh noes! You'll lose one sale if you don't drop everything your doing, Eugune, and port that ish NAO!!

On another note, you could have probably custom-built two PCs for the same price as your Mac, and been playing games on one and running VirtualBox on the other if you really need Mac OS for things. You could then upgrade each, component-by-component, as new hardware tech releases over the years, instead of having to throw the whole integrated piece of junk in the trash (or sell to a noob on CL) and buy a new one.

Mac users...when will they learn?

Jokes aside, I used to have a Mac when I was kid. When I got heavier into gaming, I realized that Mac was NOT the platform to be using. So, I built my first PC when I was 14, about 16 years ago, and have been doing the same ever since. I have also come to the realization that smartphones aren't really a gaming platform either. Sure, there are some games on Mac and smartphones - but they're either released late (90% of people have PCs vs. Macs), or are watered down versions of the PC game (mostly smartphone games). Either way, if you are serious about gaming, do yourself a favor and build/buy a PC. It costs about as much as a game console if you know what you're doing and don't need the bleeding-edge tech.

What do you mean "Mac users... when will they learn." Macs are better for just about everything except gaming. Why would I get a computer solely to game if im not a huge gamer. I got my mac and im happy with it. If I had to go back, I would probably still get a mac. All we are saying is that if a game can be easily ported to mac, then why not do it.
