Question: What about the new Game of the Year maps? Can I use them? Aspyr also mentions on the web site that they are looking into updating the Mac client to 1.33:
Answer: Yes, you can use those maps. You can even download them from the PC sites, but you will have to use an extraction utility to pull files out of the PC exe file. One such utility is UnZipper.
We are looking at repackaging these map files to a more Macintosh-friendly format and finding a host for them. Watch this space or the downloads tab of the game's page for more information.
Question: How about the new 1.33 update, I see servers with that version, but I can't join them, saying something about "invalid .pk3 files". What does that mean, and how can I play on those servers? We'll be sure to keep you posted on any more news regarding the Map Pack and the 1.33 patch.

Answer:We are investigating this now, but it does seem as though the Macintosh client cannot join those servers.
