Curious about Apple or Mac usage

Post by Kentleman2 on Tue Jun 12, 2012 2:30 pm

Is it possible to use Mac or other Apple-based computers on Aenea or other Windows PWs?
If so, how would one accomplish this? (Don't waste a lot of time on this. The person I'm asking for wouldn't notice 4 or 5 hundred bucks if it vanished. lol.) Thanks, in advance!

NWN on a Mac... should be fine.. if it's not, run it under a Windows Emulator/thingi.. most Macs are highly capable machines able to run Windows in (ahem) Windowed mode from Finder...

Yes macs can run NWN multiplayer. I haven't done it, but as rusty said, at worst you could run it under a windows emulator, though performance might not be great. I would check gog.com for a properly packaged Mac version.

mac mac mac

It is all I have ever run
It runs NWN fine.
The best solution that I have found is to use a program called 'Crossover' which allows the mac to run many windows programs without an emulator or windows system of any kind installed.
Not sure how it does it exactly, but know that it uses WINE protocols which are also used for dedicated LINUX machines.

The NWN worlds care not at all what OS you have, only the NWN program.

cheers, Jack
