View Full Version : Pandoras box or "Messiah on a Mac"

05 May 2007, 12:52 PM
Hello everyone,

I know that topic isn't a loved one, but I am curios. I have an Intel based MacBook for quite a while now and I only bought it because I can run Windows (and therefor Messiah) on it. But, my Windows days are over, I really like OSX. So I wonder, is there a way to run Messiah on my Mac?

Well, of course, there is BootCamp, but like I said, I like my OSX and rebooting all the time is just annoying (believe me, I do that atm).
Another possibility is Parallels, but the Mouse gets totally crazy when you want to transform something.
So did anyone manage to run it on a Mac? Maybe trough programs like WINE or CROSSOVER?

Please let me know

Trust me, you are NOT alone in this. There are people still waiting.

For now, i'm afraid there is no way you can run M:S inside of OS X.

Parallels does not support 3d graphics...yet!

Crossover won't do you any good (read: It doesn't work in Crossover)

BootCamp is the only way.

I feel ya man!

She is a woman. ;)

A bird told me that a conversion to Mac OSX might not be a big deal. It just needs someone to funds pmg for a few days (two weeks?) to actually do the port. So if there is enough interest, there might actually be a way. Maybe we should do one of those funding thingies online where people sign in for and make a certain monetary offer?

I beg your pardon Monika. I was in a hurry so didnt notice your signature!

AlexK: Thats a good idea. If pMG is interested at all. It wouldnt hurt to have a poll or whatever. Count me in.
