Dear BioWare,

I'm wondering if in the future there will be a Star Wars: the old republic for mac?
Running it on a bootcamped windows version, and going quite smoothly, but switching over all the time is kinda annoying and i really prefer using OSX instead of windows if im playing on a mac ;p

Regards,

Bob

probably not anytime soon. I remember a Q&A before it was released that asked the same question. They said they had no plans for a mac client, but they would make sure it would run in bootcamp.

If it gets big enough, if it captures even a third of the regular subscriptions of Warcraft, I'm sure it will make the leap. I'd be interested too (I'm playing it via Bootcamp right now), though I will say that most multi-format games are better optimised in their Windows versions.

Bob:

I'm trying to run SWTOR on my Mac vis Bootcamp but I'm getting an Error Code 7. Can you, or anyone else running successfully on a Mac, offer any advice for getting the game to run? Is there a specific driver I need to update from the 11 drivers that Mac provides to support Windows on the Windows partition?

Thanks so much.

IMHO they should do it as im running it in bootcrap but im realy tired of rebooting every time i want to play it. Even if it would be a wine wraper.

Dear Bob,

While Macs' are wonderful computers and very good at what they do, they are not however very good as gaming systems. 90%+ of all new games are designed and written for PC's. So while I understand the attractiveness of a Mac, if you want to game, pick up a PC and keep it on the side.

Has anyone successfully got the game client to run in a VM like Parallels, VM Ware Fusion?
Bootcamp rebooting is a PITA!

I bought swtor and subscribed on my mac not realizing until it was too late they didn't have a game client for macs. What is this bootcamp on mac everyone keeps mentioning that allows them to play swtor on a mac? Do i have to buy it or just download it?

But truthfully, how good a computer is as a gaming system has nothing to do with the brand, it's simply a matter of looking at the specs. If it meets the minimum specs, it'll run TOR.
