Does it work?

If anyone has got the game working perfectly please state so here.
It would also be useful if you state what kind of Mac your on.


check the tips and trick, its been told thats how you can get it to work buy no luck here

No, it doesn't...

well, i tried for two solid days to get it to work, and i sort of got it running...

basically, i ran it using vmware fusion and the game ran just fine once cracked. the only problem was with the graphics, the screen was artifacted to a point at which i couldnt make out the units, and there was obviously some major runtime issues with the 3d graphics. so, i decided to copy the entire install directory, and replace it with the fresh, uncracked install directory created with crossover games. after doing this and following the regedit instructions and wine settings, i started up the game, and sure enough, it worked! movies played perfectly, everything was lookin great an no lag at all, until i realized i had no mouse cursor. then when trying to load a campaign, it froze and shut off...

oh well, i guess there is no way to play this just yet. February isnt too far away, and until then, im just going to keep trolling through google pages looking for signs that people got it working outside of bootcamp, since i cannot partition my drive on my mac pro. at least i know that the game is very likely able to run in osx, it just needs some fixes.

all those screenshots of the game running on a mac, are all taken before the game crashes. i dont think youll find a single one with the game actually playing, and an osx desktop in the background. its just not possible to run the actual game right now. hope this answeres the questions as to whether or not it runs.

right now, the only thing you can do with this is oggle at the nice menu and listen to the red alert theme and videos.
