Not true at all. As a matter of fact, most Macs meet or exceed TOR requirements by a large margin.

The idea that a game has to be run on "max" is not reality, and trust me, your $400 built-box PC isn't doing that either.

This thread is for discussing support for an OS X client for Star Wars The Old Republic. Please keep comments related to that topic.

This is not a Bootcamp thread.

This is not a Mac Vs. PC thread.
Never owned a Mac and dont plan to get one (at least in the near future), but i think you guys do deserve a game client too. Its about time gaming industries started taking mac users into account too.

Btw respect to Valve for releasing so many of their games for mac.

BioWare Founders do! (once they get "everything stabilized and happy.")

No, as it would take too much resources away from the other development.

Difference is that $400 emachine probably has a pci-e slot now days.

and has been seen by many users, this crappy engine in its current state of optimization needs more than the stated minimum, getting back to my point. If it diverts progress on un****ing the current sole client that they were unable to get right with a $200 mil budget, than no. Otherwise, yes, yes, yes.

Tell that to Blizzard. And Valve.

And BioWare.

Although the game runs fine in Parallels, I would welcome a native OS X client.

I'm not buying Windows, and I'm not pirating Windows - Not worth my money or my bandwidth. (And Boot Camp hates pirated versions evidently.)

I'll gladly return to the game once OSX support is implemented - Soon would be kinda cool, miss my Marauder.
