    i want to get BtS, and Aspyr and Mac need to cooperate more, they've done all this so far, they need to get going on it, its totally discriminatory because of the fact that macs are not the majority, the PC's are. I have an intel based powerbook, and my warlords works awesome on it. I am not giving in to buying the Windows on my mac. step it up aspyr!

    Ignoring a format with poor market penetration and generally poor and/or overpriced gaming hardware is not discriminatory, it's common sense.

    :wavey: Hi Aco! I completely understand your frustration. I'm not sure it's discriminatory, rather most likely it's economics. In any case, have you written the same sentiment to Aspyr directly? They'll never hear you if you only post here ;)

    overall, there needs to be a universal binary system in place for games like this, where mac is severely backed up on the game end of things. Programming in universal is not that bad of an idea.

    I'm still hoping for Beyond the Sword Mac version. I hate runing Civ+Vista on my MacBook, far to many errors

    As I have asserted elsewhere, I do not believe it is Aspyr letting you down. They provide only what they are paid for, they are guns for hire. The folks who most need to hear from you are the folks hiring the mercenaries, the ones that have a instituted development process that ensures Mac users have no choice but to pay full price for a delayed and inferior product.

    BTW: I sent an e-mail to pr@aspyr.com yesterday telling them that I would buy it when they release it.

    Cheers.

    Oh my god ! What j*rks (the one who made the game) !!!
    I looked at the new leaders in the game and those ********* are saying that CHarles de Gaulle was the Prime Minister of France !!!
    He never was !!!

    Where can we complain about those things ?

    PS : Apart from that the new features seem great !

    According to Wikipedia, he was the 124th prime minister. 1944--1946.

    Between 1944 and 1946 he was the president of a temporary government, he was both president of the republic and "prime minister". In 1958, he was for 2 months the "prime minister" of the last president of the IVth Republic, he then became president for the next 10 years, we can't even compare his professed "prime minister" job to his president mandate.

    Not in France, not at all, in contrary, the President of the French Republic has a lot of power and he's elected by the people directly. It's more like a ruling king, elected every 5 years, not like the king/queen of England who doesn't rule at all.

    Yeah, they really need to get on it...I want to see all the new features. This marks the only time I've been depressed about owning a Mac.

    I have windows on my mac strictly only for modding and better performance on Civ. Otherwise I'll always be pro mac. Always have been, don't be depressed LOL. It'll come out eventually. :D Aspyr is just F*ED up. Nothing we can do about it. :(
