no PC to mac
Nick April 15 - 12:47 PM

waste of time, cant play with any of my friends.. this sucks

cross platform woes
Thrak April 13 - 7:42 PM

The game not supporting cross platform multiplayer is probably going to be a deal breaker for me.

Does anyone know what the technical difficulties are in getting cross platform to work? Were these games coded with some Wintel specific networking protocol that can't be translated? It seems like even if the data packets being sent over the net were different that some kind of translator could be created. Obviously, there's something more to it than that. What is it?

It's never made much sense to me that games like this one or the Age of Empires/Mythology series don't work cross platform.

Just curious.

Buy- No PC/Mac
Matthew April 12 - 10:31 PM

I buy it anyway. Don't care if I can't play with my friends, I like this game. (and Aspyr) :P

likes multiplayer too April 12 - 5:41 PM

There are Mac fans who have friends who have PCs. They would like to play together. Nothing wrong with that.

This in no way is meant as an insult to Aspyr. They tried to get PC-Mac to work, but it couldn't. Thanks for trying, Glenda. We love you anyway.

There are a few "elitist" snobs on there. I'm not saying all but those few do make me not play as often.

get over it.

get over the mac/PC thing.
it won't happen just don't buy it.

Finally! Yay!
Will April 12 - 1:03 PM

Woohoo! I thought this day would never come :)

I don't see what's the big deal is with not being able to play with PC users. What's wrong with Mac gamers on GameRanger?

no mac to pc
no buy April 12 - 11:23 AM

This took far too long to come out because of the cross platform networking. Single play not enough for me to buy it. not even playing on gameranger. At least Aspyr is trying though. I'll be waiting for Call of Duty, Breakthrough,Battlefield 1942 baby!

9000 fix
Glenda Adams April 12 - 11:20 AM

The 9000 fix should be released before the game shows up in stores on Friday. We've already found the cause and are working with ATI to get the right workaround in the CCG code. So everything should be nice and clean as soon as you get the game in your hands.

KOTOR is coming too
Mac Game Insider News Guy April 12 - 11:07 AM

This one will be cool to have on the Mac! I'm on my way to get C&C too!

What about Radeon 9000 issues?
Narles April 12 - 11:00 AM

I can't even think about ordering this game until the issues that I experienced with the Generals Demo are fixed. I couldn't play the thing for more than 5 minutes (just long enough to get a glimpse at what the real game looks like...but not long enough to get to try it). Any idea on when this will be fixed?

Email Tuncer here at IMG. I've asked for overnight shipping before and he's sent games I've ordered overnight, usually for just a few bucks more.

He's at store@insidemacgames.com

TO get my copy here by Friday...
Billy April 12 - 9:06 AM

Who should i go thru to order this to get it to my house by friday? I'd even pay extra.
