Timeline for MAC availability

Postby clipsrback » Thu May 14, 2020 4:09 pm

Curious if there are any updates on MAC availability for games anywhere in the near future?

I have purchased many versions of college and pro basketball in the past and would quickly purchase those and football if they operated on a MAC.

Just isn't reasonable to own a PC just for these games. I tried a Windows tablet in the past and too clunky.

Funny enough, I just spent over 3k on a Macbook Pro 2019 and have joined the club. I'm going to look into vmware but definitely would prefer a pure OS version to use all the power I'll have...

I just want to follow-up and saw I got one of the games running like a beauty on mac. Caveat: You need VMWare Fusion which costs $$.

To do this, setup a Windows 10 iso image on VMWare Fusion, and then install a DDS game.

I bought a MacBook Pro 2018 in January of 2019. It’s the first MAC I own and I’m obsessed with it. As a programmer/developer, it was the type of computer I needed. But for a customer of Wolverine Studios it hasn’t been the best experience. I didn’t want to mess with the hard drive in the MacBoom with partitions or anything, so I figured out how to install Windows 10 on an external hard drive. Sure, it’s not the most convenient thing having to have an external drive anytime I want to start up in Windows but it is getting the job done for sure.
