For reference: Skyrim seems to work *mostly* well on a late-2013 15" retina MacBook Pro with the discrete GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M), running OS X Mavericks. At 2880x1800 resolution the framerate was too low (unsurprisingly), but I'm now running at 1440x900 at the Medium group of video settings, and only rarely does the framerate drop so I notice. (I'm not a hardcore gamer, so my standards may be low.)
The only bug I've noticed is that when exiting the game, it instantly hangs (not appearing to accept any input, and not updating the screen). From there, I am able to Cmd-Tab back to Steam (running in the same bottle, I think?), and can force-quit Skyrim with no apparent side-effects.
I've got the early '13 MacBook Pro with the 650m and it runs like a charm on medium settings. Saw the legendary edition on sale on Steam for 75% off, instantly bought it. I've got around 80 mods installed and so far everything works fine. Occasionally the game freezes up, but that's due to a mod conflict or something.
Mine doesnt work at ALL. i have a desktop computer with OSX 10.9 and i cant play skyrim. Downloaded it and everything, followed the instructions perfectly, and yet every time i try to open it, it just closes again. help please
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
