You stop trolling.

This game only works on Windows.

I am running it on my Macbook pro. It works OK, not the best for gaming tho. Anyways you have to either run Windows thru bootcamp or parallels. Here's a link you might find helpful.

i am not beeing a troll here .. but the game is not supported on a mac. some people found out ways to get it to work thur a bootcamp windows but bioware will not support the game at all if you are running it on a mac.

and honestly macs are not for games. Good luck tring to get it to work but the best thing you can do is go and get a pc and then you will all good you dont need much to run the game. just make sure you get a ok vid card a nvidia 400 series or better.

Yeahh... just gonna throw my 2 cents in here and hopefully close the issue by saying the game runs beautifully with all graphics cranked up to 11 on my late 2010 iMac, Windows 7 x64 running on a Boot Camp partition. No issues whatsoever.

You don't know what bootcamp is do you?

Runs fine on my MBP with bootcamp. Some drops in FPS in some busy areas but other than that I'm pleased with how it runs considering it is a laptop.

Hey Wahoo, you runinng any sort of 3rd party fan control on your MBP when boot camping? Last time I was playing with Boot camp (like a year ago) noticed that Windows wouldnt ramp my fans up, so had to use a 3rd party application to control my fans. In the end I just abandoned it and stayed with my desktop for gaming, but always nice to have something when your on the road.
