I got my copy from Deliver2Mac and don't remeber any big issues with the speed of the download. The only problem I had was that the download did not come with a manual. I sent them an email and within 30 minutes I had the manual and this was on a Sunday afternoon (US time). They did not know why the manual had not been included and indicated they were going to look into it.
Thanks for that - I'd already given in to temptation and downloaded it, in point of fact, it came down almost at my full bandwidth (not the fastest broadband around, and then via my Airport network) till it was about 75% done, then slowed right down just to irritate! But only around 45' in all.
I did get a manual in my resultant disk image. And since I was net-connected on first launch, the game checked and offered to update to a newer version and relaunch immediately (Specified fixes only seemed to apply to some potential key registration problems).

Is the editor functionality included? Can we make new battles etc????
Nothing included, nor mentioned in the manual, relating to editors. Though as someone mentioned above I think, we may be able to use the various PC stuff that's presumably floating around; the Mac ports of X2 and Age of Empires (various versions), for example, have handled PC maps ok for me in the past.

Anyone else having a problem with getting artillery to work properly? Having the artillery lined up properly seems to be very important. There is a Turn Curser command that is suppose to allow you to re align artillery, but I have had very limited luck. Sometimes it works but most of the time it does not. If your not aligned properly then fire missions just don't happen. Artillery is very critical to success in my limited experience so this is very frustrating. Anyone have any suggestions?
Graphics are also very basic and I seem to have intermittent lines. I'm going to reduce the resolution to se if that solves any of my problems.
Have to say I've noticed none of the above so far, graphics fine (standard Apple Cinema and shipped ATI Radeon 9650 on my G5), and the Turn command, both button and key shortcut, seems to be fine on artillery, tanks and trucks for me. Haven't started a campaign yet though, just tutorial and one of the individual missions.
The one problem I did have, that initially had me scratching my head a bit, was that this PC to Mac port, unlike I think any other I've come across, looks for CMD(Apple)/Click as 'Right-Click', and as it seems to turn out, always treats CTRL as 'Force-Attack'; and since my Logitech 7-button mouse has right-click set to CTRL-Click (which is fine, and I think correct, for all other uses far as I know), I was finding that trying to get a unit to 'Follow' another as instructed in the tutorial actually ended up causing the 'follower' to *destroy* the 'followed' ! Not very helpful - and I also couldn't get, eg, artillery to hook up to trucks. Eventually found by trial and error that CMD-Click got the correct default behaviour to happen in these circumstances, so guess I'll just change my mouse right-click default every time before playing Blitzkrieg. Can't remember ever having to do this before though
