The spec list says Mac OS 10.4.8 with the Intel chips are "currently" supported. Does this mean that there are plans to support PPC and older versions of OSX? If so, any time frame on that or should we not expect it to ever happen?

Much thanks.

The Mac Uru client uses a technology that works only on i686 (Intel) compatible CPUs. The Mac client is the ordinary Windows client wrapped in an additional layer that makes it compatible with Mac OS X. This layer is not designed to emulate an Intel CPU on PPC architecture.

Thanks Tiran, I see why now, alas. I guess I will just have to purchase a new Mac. As if I needed an excuse :)

any word on the release date yet? I'm already sick of Vista, I'd really like to get my Uru on without rebooting...

Do you have Vista installed on your MacBook Pro? How did the install go? Which version of Vista is it that you have on the Mac?

Did you have any problems with the Boot Camp drivers when you installed Vista? I'd like to give it a try but I had read there were so many issues.... :?

i dont recommend installing vista on boot camp until apple releases vista drivers, especially for the trackpad (no scrolling or tap-click) and wifi. bluetooth? forget it.

plus uru is very spazzy. vista (as far as i can tell) is just xp with a layer of polish. polish that makes it a bit less stable than it was before. so actually, i dont recommend vista at all, on a mac or not. im actually considering reinstalling xp so i can run uru without the hassle of vista... :?

oh and this is a legal copy of vista ultimate (the best version), so don't pass me off as a cheapskate who bought home edition just so i could bash it ;)

This thread doesn't seem as useful if it's not a sticky anymore =)

To copy info from other thread: mystonline.com just changed their banner to say "...bringing Myst Online to the Mac platform for the first time on March 20th."

And to again repeat info from the other thread (sorry if I'm overdoing this): I've updated my newcomer guide (see link below) to include information on getting the Mac client.

Note in particular that if you already have a Gametap account, you can download the Mac client for no additional cost. You can then log into your existing account, and play the same avatars on Mac or Windows at whim.
