Soldat won't be coded to work on a Mac.┬  Too much work and MM personally doesn't like Macs.┬  You can still play it using an emulator.┬  Try using Google to find one.

Actually Optik, I have good news for you... if you have an Intel Mac.

If you have an Intel Mac, you can use a program called Crossover, which allows you to run Windows programs natively, without needing a seperate install of windows. That means Soldat or any Windows program (capable of running through Crossover) will run even better on a Mac than a PC lol, since Macs are superior to PC's. Even OS X surpasses Windows in everything it is capable of. The new version - Windows Vista is actually a bloated upgrade of XP and it's interface is an OS X ripoff. "PC, you are coming to a sad realization. Allow or Deny?"

So if you have an intel mac, then install and enjoy. :)

Actually, OSX is the most slow unstable feck I have ever used. Used it for 3 years in school, and hope I will never see the damn thing again.

Still, would be nice to have soldat for mac, so that we had some real games to LAN on our school. Not that it would be pleasant with those 1 button shitty mouses.

Well, it depends on how old the Macs at your school are. Even in our tech department, we still have old 300MHz systems running OS X and they have usually run well. However, for certain tasks requiring up to date ram, they will freeze or screw up royally. We've had quite a few problems simply burning media onto CDR's. The one button mice are also a pain in the ass. From the sounds of it, yeah you guys still have old G3's running probably.

The Intel Macs, especially the ones from this year will blow all competition straight out of the water. Depending on exact required technical specifications, they will run Windows programs better than their PC counterpart of similar specs.

OS X 10.5 is well built and solid. From my experience with OS X 10.3-10.5, it runs very fast, efficient and has never crashed. I have frozen programs, but that was an issue with bad coding in certain freeware, memory issues or buggy beta software.  It's as good as the best version of Linux, I'm sure.

So is it confirmed that Soldat can and will run with the program Crossover?

I personally haven't had a chance to test Soldat on Crossover. I don't own an Intel Mac yet, only G4. However, from what I've seen the new Macs run, Soldat should work just fine. There should still be a free beta of Crossover version 1.0 that you can download. Even the beta should be fine, so try it out.

Really, from what I have seen it is a crap shoot with parallels or some program like crossover, with team fortress 2 specifically, one worked normally and the other had some serious graphics flaws. Parallels ran with piss poor FPS and bootcamp was fine, because all it is is GParted for the mac.

Well, some of these programs like Crossover are quite new, so of course there are going to be some bugs to work out running some programs natively in OS X. Best thing to do is test out the current software and see what runs best. The few games and programs I saw Crossover run, ran without a glitch. The version 1 beta of Crossover did however have a few minor graphic glitches and dips in FPS when running Steam games.

I just like the absolute stability of OS X. It's a solid Unix-based OS. Which is why, when it can run a windows program well, it runs it really well. But, that's enough pushing Macs right now. Everyone is going to get sick of it lol. Everyone has their personal preference. I like Windows too (except for the registry, virii, etc and common freezing). I'm learning programming in Windows. It's just it's nice to see an alternative to Windows.. that can run windows programs.

Turn the intro off in the config. Why would u want to play soldat on a mac? Its just the same as running windows 98 on a psp, its crappy, unstable and slow.

The only reason why macs seem to run stuff faster is the fact that you can only really have so much stuff hardware wise on a mac.  And they program the OS according to that, so everything is more efficiently. Where as PCs have so much broader of hardware you can buy and put into your computer, so the coders at microsoft have to plan accordingly, but since there are thousands and thousands of possibly hardware configs, and its next to impossible to test compatability with EVERY single setup, you have to comprimise. Bugs will happen, shit wont run as good cause of stuff not being optimized for your hardware.

I personally dont like macs. Never have. Never will, I like to know every single part I put in my computer, and put it there myself. I also like to have options. And I gaurentee that you can get a more powerfull PC than you can a mac.

I do agree that vista is garbage. Worst OS ever imo.
