Title: A Mac Version?
Post by: tigxxx on August 28, 2012, 05:47:43 PM
Hello guys, I'm new there. I've heard about To the Moon and wanted to get the game. Problem : I'm on a Mac machine from few weeks (and probably forever) and I've not found anything for the Mac users. Even not a discussion...  -cuss- Will a Mac version be released?

See ya

Hmm, the problem here is To the Moon's engine, rmxp.  :reivsweat: It's not mac compatible, and I don't think I've heard of anyone getting it to work on macs yet. But don't give up hope. :seraismile: It may change in the near future.

The near future may not be as near as you think...

And by that I mean nothing, because I have no idea. :p

The problem is that compatibility shell programs on Unix based system usually miss crucial .dll files for running RMXP engine. If you manage to boot a virtual machine with Win. XP on your Unix distribution the problem should be solved, but I never tried that.

Use Wine and Winebox, install the necessary components (like DX10 and .NET Framework), then install TtM. It will be buggy, and possibly very slow, but it works.

^It's easier to run virtual machine with Win OS than trying to fight with Bronze program on Wine.

Meh.

Speaking of which, I tried to install W7 on a virtual-machine, but upon loading the ISO for installation, it just bluescreens after loading. Any idea why?

Mmm.. Sorry. I when I was working with virtual machines I was only booting XP.

Oh, I've got no problems with macs. :vikonsmile: They're quite excellent. But for gaming purposes, yes, a pc is a far better choice.

People engaged heavily in the media industry; journalists, photographers, illustrators - in some cases animators.

Of course not a necessity, some companies still go with PCs for work. The thing is that Windows is an OS that is developed for ALL hardware which can make it sluggish at times, where as Mac is developed for the hardware you get in the box thus making it more optimized.

They both have their ups and downs, it just depends on what you're looking for.

And guys who need to do some heavy computing like physicists. (If you don't need 256- bit architecture in our newly found 64-bit age)

A majority of game servers are run on Linux due to it being open source, and I recall it was great overall at handle RAM. Also scripting and programming. I think.  :salbrow:

^Linux is major OS on big scale computing but not so much with end users. As one of "them" (Linuxers) I kinda wonder.

All these programs that you say different people need is way better to have on a pc.

Overpriced Mac or an awesome PC, the choice is easy.

There is not only Win and Mac on this Battlefield. Eventually everybody will submit to power of Penguin.

Actually, the adobe package was developed better for the Mac OS than Windows, with the Mac architecture in mind.

Macs are overpriced for a reason. You get a computer that works like it should, and never crashes. PCs are cheaper, but you always run the risk of crashing and losing work. Macs are fast. PCs are clunky.

Thus not saying "PC is worse". That'd be hypocritical of me. But both have their ups and downs. The choice is easy only if you know what youre looking for.

Either you buy an expensive Mac, or an expensive PC.

I don't know about you but I've had more crashes on a mac then I've ever had on a PC(I'm talking full crash, blue screen that kind of stuff, not programs.)

Macs don't blue-screen though.
Nice try.

And no, that's not a "Macs never crash" argument, that's a "Macs don't crash like that" argument.

Related: my Mac gave me a blue screen of death. What is this bs.

That's right there on the shoutbox. XD Anyway, that's not what he was arguing. I think he just meant full crashes in general.

Yeaaaaaaaah, don't go overboard on the rules. Everyone seems to be doing their own thing nowadays (i.e. rule 1 and 2) which is really okay, if you think about it, the place remains a chill place to hang out and the only nemeses are bots (and perhaps that NOANOBU* guy who disappeared into the shadows).

I mean, Jesus Christ, even I'm breaking rule 1 and 2 with this post. What the hell. /endderailing

I think he just meant crashes that cause you to reboot the system rather than just blue screen, since the blue screen of death is part of Windows.
