20 September 2019 - 11:21 AM

No teaser this time: Feral flat out announced that "A Total War Saga: Troy" will be coming for Mac and Linux in 2020.

The MacGameStore-Support has closed the ticket and told be to go to virtual-programming with that issue.
Fits what I mentioned, as Deliver2Mac in fact is Virtual Programming. Makes sense that there is the same stupid activation limit.


https://www.vpltd.com I see white on white, what do you see?
Yup. White page.

I'm told they pulled a similar stunt for an old version of Windows. So at least they are platform-agnostic in how poorly they treat some of their most loyal customers.
XP and Vista, which were 18 and 12 years old respectively at the time Valve dropped support. 0.22% of Valve's user base used XP at that time, and Vista hadn't even enough users left to qualify to be listed in the statistic.

Yeah, that's really no way to treat these masses of loyal customers.

Beside that steam-problem. I bought some games on "delivery2mac" and on "macgamestore".

Blitzkrieg: no serial is working, don't know why (i got two or three back then, because they changed something in the rights management)
AlienShooter2: Serial is working, but the "backend" tells me that I installed it on too many machines. I last played it perhaps 5-6 years ago, it's not installed beside on that macmini. Great!
Deliver2Mac had a stupid activation limit for quite a while: you could only install and activate their games for 3 times or something. Not concurrently, in total. I don't remember that the MGS ever had such a limit, except maybe when it came from the publishers.

In Topic: Borderlands 3!

13 September 2019 - 02:13 PM

While I'm massively stoked for the game, I currently neither have the time nor really the money for new, full-priced games. So it'll have to wait. Plus, I'm sceptical whether the EGS really is the shape to be a solid platform for the game. It certainly hasn't really gained many of the features promised back when BL3 was announced.

Not true! They're great for really old games, like these!
Not anymore when Catalina drops.
