I've arrived at this forum due to the no-mac-version problem..... My copy arrived friday from shopto.net (under £11  Grin ), and I was also disappointed to find no Mac copy of the game on the disc like advertised  Cry

Hopefully they'll come up with a system where we send them our proof of purchase and they give a link to download the full mac version.... was really looking forward to playing this over the weekend...

that's strange. did you really try the DVD on Mac? there should be 2 partitions so you won't see any Mac files on PC.

That is what I assumed, but alas, there is no Mac partition (and yes, I did try it on a Mac) - the PC version still works fine.

That is what I am hoping too. I'd be quite happy to download the Mac version - don't expect them to replace the disc.

I'm fully expecting that Mamba will either offer to replace the disc itself, or offer to replace the entire box, for free. I'd ordered the DVD from Mamba so that I could own a physical copy of the game, so I won't be happy with merely a downloadable copy. =o(

Lamkin, your boxed German version is not the collectors edition yet, right? And it works on your Mac, right?

My guess: Game is for PC. "Mac dvd compatible" (with specs) means that on your Mac you will be able to read the dvd and copy the OST folders with hi-res PDF covers.

Actually I already own the game in all its digital versions and the OST (2 digital copies and a vynil record) Smiley .

I was interested in the printed stuff (mainly the concept art booklet)

I wonder if guys at Amanita have something to say about all this.


EDIT: THANKYOU Smiley Smiley

I dunno. I (respectfully) disagree. =op I think that "Mac-compatible" means that the game works on the Mac. Period. And you'd mentioned the specs. I'm assuming those requirements are identical to Amanita's stated minimum requirements which are needed to run the game on a Mac. Why else would they be listed on the back of the box?
I'd also like to know if any of the printed material mentions anything anywhere about installing the game on a Mac. Can anyone answer that?

hi everybody,
firstly I'm sorry that the Mac version isn't on the DVD. there should be 2 partitions (PC+Mac), but Mamba screw it up unfortunately Angry
please contact Mamba if you own the DVD and need Mac version, they should send you another disc. I hope they will be swift.

Dear All,

Jason from Mamba Games here, we have spent the weekend looking through everything and there is an issue with the compatibility of the MAC version. Now, what we are going to do is provide you with a separate MAC disc version and send these direct to you. Our tech today will create a dedicated email account which we will provide later today and all customers that require please can you send through your details, Proof of Purchase and we will get these over to you asap. With the help of the developers we hope to start production on the version in the next 2 days.

Once again we apologize for this and we will aim to rectify right away.

Regards,
Jason
