Wolfenstein (Finally)

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Hey guys, now that its FINALLY out (got mine installed today, and runs great on my Ti550/768/Radeon 16MB). Are there any Wolf-centric sites with forms for us Mac heads to converse in? I would love to chat with the Mac Wolf contingent, but haven't found a Wolf site with current Mac info and a Mac forums section...

    I didn't want to post this earlier, but I played the Mac-Wolfenstein about a month ago during final canidate stage. This game rocks. I didn't have a single crash under OSX. The graphics are superb, the storyline cool, the action wonderful. There are a variety of levels that are fabulous. If you like 3rd person shooters, buy this now.

    It's a first-person shooter. This ain't Laura Croft! LOL

    i wuz wondering... I have the PC version of RtCW. Dya think if I simply use the RtCW.app and place it in the same folder with the rest of the data from the PC version, it'll work?

    Thats what I did with Quake 3. I have the PC version and just downloaded the .app from the web, and off it goes.

    Plus RtCW is Quake3 engine based...

    Can anyone post the .app somewhere? Is that piracy actually? I bought the PC version... can I also ask for someone to post the .app (which would be useless to anyone else)?

    It is piracy? Ya' damn skippy it is! You bought the PC version, giving id their share, but you are willing to pirate the Mac version thereby "stealing" from Westlake. Also, you will help skew the sales demographics, making it look like fewer Mac people are buying the game. Thus, id will have further incentive to cut Mac development. It may sound farfetched, but realize that you aren't the only person to consider doing this.

    Yeah seriously ZO. It's really not good to steal the .app.

    Instead, find a good HL server and download the whole thing like a good software pirate.

    Thing is, I understand that it helpd Macs and Apple, bla bla bla... but I still went out and spent a pretty penny on the PC version, played it, liked it, etc. I just want to see how the bugger runs on my iBook I keep bashing for its poor performance. Quake3 runs pretty well on it so I want to take RtCW as a sort of benchmark to see just how worthless (or not) this poor little thing is for gaming.

    If it really sucks, then Im going to sell this iBook, get a small 12.1 inch iBook, and make my own dyi PC for gaming. I'll prob wait until next revision of iBooks to decide that though. Who knows, maybe the next iBook 14 inch (or all of them) will have a G4 processor and we can finally saw good bye to 5 year old G3s!!!
