    I took advantage of the free CrossOver Mac offer to download and play the PC version. Only a few turns in but it does seem to be working much better.

    This.

    I actually have access to a PC at home or could probably install a VW or Bootcamp, but I simply refuse: I bought the game for the same price as any Windows user, why can't I have access to the same features? Beyond accessing mods, why can't I access the SDK tools I paid for?

    If they have time to tweak the code to allow for touchscreen users to more easily play (good thing too), they have time to allow Mac users to access the mods and the SDK tools.

    I've just asked to be reimbursed for Civ 5 and G&K (I can let you know how this turns out if you want). Also, I'm seriously wondering if Mac users would have any legal standing for some kind of class action suit, as the non-availability of mods and modding aren't all that clear when you buy the Mac version. Again, we paid the same price as Windows users, we should have access to the same features.

    I'm feeling very let down by Aspyr right now.

    Any ETA?

    I feel so cheated I'm about to burst at the seams! I think I'm going to shut my eyes really hard and hold my breath until they release the patch already.

    Still no ETA? :mad:

    Unfortunately, this has been the case with most of the Civ updates. Mac always updates after the PC release.

    Patch would be nice, but the game is still quite playable. Quite playable.

    Given the number of people reporting performance problems, crashes, etc. on Mac I suspect that they're putting more into the "Fall Patch" than just porting what 2K has done.

    I've personally been pretty busy lately, so I haven't been keeping close track of the PC version of the path, but that sounds pretty nasty. Particularly the bit about ATI and DX9, which covers a lot of the Mac hardware.

    No, I don't have an ETA on Mac version of the patch.

    Ryan - awesome to hear about Borderlands, that's great! Yes, the PC version has some bad issues - real problems with Mods, graphics and the like. We've played MP games that are working OK, but there's lots of people suffering with crashing issues, and from what my father says, playing with mods (which I don't do often due to the lacking MP support) has been made seriously tedious by this patch...

    :(

    I feel Aspyr would best be served to wait on a likely "hotfix" patch by Firaxis before porting anything.

    I don't usually go over to my PC side on Bootcamp these days, but I thought I'd try the new patch yesterday.

    Everything was very smooth and the graphics looked terrific (all set to high on my iMac [CPU: 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7; RAM: 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3; GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048 MB], using Windows 7).

    On the Mac side, I usually play on smaller maps with less city states to keep things moving, but this time I played on a Standard map and there were not the usual delays between turns.

    So, if Aspyr are doing the tweaking as well as porting the patch, it will be great.

    I was quite relax for a possible release as the game remains cool without the patch. yesterday I discovered that Mac users are shut out of the GOTM, so the sooner the patch, the better.....

    To Aspyr, once you lose the client as he moves on to other games, he is lost.....

    If you bought the Steam version, you have access to the PC version already. If you bought the App Store version, you're SoL. :(
