    Question Mac Support


    Hi, I really enjoy playing Rift and I was wondering when the support for this fun game was coming to the Mac OS?

    Beta Version acceptable for me! (I don't mind testing for free and reporting problems!!!!)

    I'm not sure how the forums work on here but i was unable to find a Mac support thread or any information reguarding it and I was also wondering if some moderator could make a Stickyed thread about Mac support! Feel free to move my thread if this is the incorrect place!

    Thanks

    Cant say about an actual mac client, most on a mac just bootcamp it and call it a day

    Why is that not? Many mac users are happily in game with this method.

    Well, if you don't like the bootcamp answer, there's this solution:

    I am playing RIFT using CrossOver Games and works really well. Installed without problems and the patching process is working fine.
    I think that it could run even under plain wine (since cxg is a patched wine version) with some tweaking.
