Mac version?!?!?!
« on: October 28, 2007, 08:13:08 pm »

or perhaps a way to play the current exe for us osx? Does one or will one exist? I'm dying to try this masterwork of apples falling up.

Unfortunately, no. MMF has no mac support and likely never will. Even if it was made in something else (besides say.. Flash), I wouldn't have a mac to test and compile it on.

Sadly this is one of the costs of having a mac. =/

Would double booting the mac OS and XP work? I think it would, but I wouldn't know.

Are you sure there isn't just some weird sky leak above your head?

No reason it wouldn't. Also, do they have any sort of 'WINE' style app for Mac? I heard about wine being ported but I dunno how far that got.

One of my friends has Linux, and it seems to work on that.  Either that or he used a virtual OS of XP to play it.

I'm Linux exclusive as well, and the game runs acceptably with WINE (though it doesn't run at all with Transgaming's Cedega with support for DirectX).  Only problem is that it has a tendency to freeze at inopportune moments (I'd say once every 10-20 minutes or so), but it's tolerable.  It also doesn't run with hardware acceleration which leads to a bit of graphical chop under heavy duress, most specifically when The Kid takes a face-plant on a spike and explodes.  Other than that it's completely tolerable.

If I get some time I'll copy some of my debugger errors over here and see if they might be of any use.  As I recall it's the same one every time it freezes.

Are you serious? I was convinced it was just my platform.

Not virtually everyone so much.. but crashes certainly are (unfortunatley) rather common. :(
