Mac os help!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have bought the game, as I think I love the concept and thought it would be work 20 bucks to play it. This was months ago and bought it on steam only to find out that steam doesnt have a MAC versions! Ok so I waited....and waited....so then I heard that there was a mac version on Desura. Bought that, still.....cant get a mac version so now I have bought the game twice and still no game to play. Can anyone help me out here as I feel that me buying the game 2 Xs should give me something to show for it.

Ko2fan seems to be the forum resident Mac version expert. (although not officially part of the goldhawks team as far as I understand)

try messing him.

I run the PC version easily on my mac and it works great, just download wine. now the problem is getting the experimental versions from Steam, in a pinch you can use wine on the pc version of steam too to download the game too, but it's a pain and slow.

Once you get Wine installed it's easy, but I forgot how how hard it was to install it, and I forgot how I did it, I think I used Macports, but to install Macports you have to install the the Xcode which is a free download from apple first.

The Mac and Linux versions lag behind the Windows versions a little because Chris likes to wait for a Stable release before releasing the Mac and Linux versions.

You can expect the Mac version to be available when V20 is stable.

Desura does have the Mac / Linux versions available for download on it, as does the Humble Store. There's a sticky on the Steam forums telling you that if you have a Steam key and want a Humble Store / Desura key you just need to email me - you don't need to buy it twice (also, the Steam browser on Mac / Linux shouldn't display Xenonauts or let you buy it).

Once you've set up WINE I think you can play the latest Steam versions without any trouble though....but you should have access to V19 Stable via Desura.
