How many Mac users do we have here?

Post by m4dm4n on Wed 23 Mar 2011, 13:08

Please answer the poll for me. I'm going to start looking into helping fix a few things for our Mac users, but I need to know how many of you there are, and if you really even need help.

Also, be on the lookout for a few posts coming up here pretty soon, on how to run Windows games and software within MacOS without the need for virtual machines or dual booting (bootcamp). I'll have all the details on a few titles that I have up and running, and the issues and fixes to getting them to run acceptably.

Cheers pirat

Hello,

Do you think you can take a look at the Installation for The Sims 3 on a Mac and see if you can fix some stuff about it, because I don't think it is actually working for everyone at the moment.

There are lots (?) of Mac users actually, but they usually stay away, because they see it's all about PC. I used to get a lot of e-mails about The Sims 3 installations on a Mac.

Hello everyone!

Are you using WINE (I'm using it for Sims 3 on Ubuntu and Fedora) or virtualization?

I'm currently testing a few of our uploads specifically for Macs. pirat

i dont actually run windows on my mac! Ive had my mac for about. .hmm i'd say 3 months, so im not exactly an expert, however, both of the sims games i have downloaded (and which stated it was for PC) are wrapped with CIDER so generally not to much messing about has been needed, Ambitions is the first torrent ive downloaded from this website (i usually use demonoid) and is the first ive had any hassle with!

Nice. Cider, like Cedega, is based off an older source fork of WINE, before the WINE project went to GPL. This allowed Transgaming to fork the code and close the source, making it "proprietary". /history lesson

It's nice to meet another non-Windows gamer on here.

First you need to extract sims3pack files into Documents/EA games/The Sims 3/Downloads file an then open the launcher, click the download section, there you can see packsvyou added, choose them and click the install button. You're done Surprised

I hope it's what you're asking.

Isn't there a Electronic Arts folder in your documents? It should contain Sims 3 folder in it.
