In Topic: What games are people playing these days!?

Yesterday, 09:37 AM

I must have looked at this thread last night, because I dreamed Charles Cecil demoed Broken Sword 6 to me and some other random people. The game had combat, which he demonstrated to us by having us play with wooden swords and shields. It also had a portrait mode on iOS, with the unused portions of the screen taken up by a Power Macintosh 5200 LC so it looked like you were playing on one. My dream-self is crazy...

Is there any chance known to get the original Starcarft2 DVD Version working on a new Snow Leopard install (10.6.8). ?
Can I download an installer or executable to make it start?

When you add a CD key to your battle.net account, you have access to the installer. Have you done that?

Agree completely. I still vastly prefer my Mac for doing work, but the Cook era Apple is the antithesis to being an enabler of Mac gaming that the previous decade was. PC for play (and very CPU and GPU intensive work, hence the beefy CPU and workstation GPU rather than a gaming one), Mac for 90% of other work, productivity tasks, and just general use works out extremely well for me. I've got my PC workstation/gaming dual-use set up, and two workstations with Thunderbolt displays set up for my Mac and I just plug my MacBook Pro into whichever one I'm going to be using at that time and go.

Yeah, I have something similar with a Thunderbolt 3 dock. I share the peripherals + speakers with the PC via a USB switch. Everything connects tp the MBP with one TB3 cable, which I love.

Just keep a USB drive on the side with 10.14 installed.

You can't run an OS older than what was originally shipped on the Mac.

Photoshop is “quite slow” on a 2016? New Minis aren’t that much better...

What if you sold your MacBook Pro and upgraded next year when they’ve fixed the keyboard, AND built a gaming PC?  All those “32 bit” games will run on the PC!
