Does WW2ol have MAc support??

10 posts in this topic

I have submitted a ticket, but no response. I have been with ww2ol since it began, in fact I was on the beta team. I am very disappointed tech support nor our Mac people are unable or unwilling to try to help.

Ticket Description:

Every since I downloaded and installed the latest MCA update I have not been able to connect to server.

When I select "play online" a window appears "PATCH DOWNLOAD" connecting to server

Nothing ever happens after that. Note I am not having network issues that I am aware of.

I am still unable to play

Damnedatc added: Dec 09 2011 04:43PM

I have an IMAC 2.8 I7

8 gb 1067 ddr3

10.7.2 osx lion

I can also run this offline but when trying online or training server, i just get the "connecting to server" with a patch download window. After a few minutes this window disappears.

I'm sorry for the problem.

Does the game run offline?

What kind of Mac are you running it on?

Playnet Support

Wow, one of the old guard peeks in to say hi :)

Mac support is still supposed to happen, but the specialist (ahwulf) is no longer with CRS. They still make a version for us, but the bugs may not get squashed as quickly.

Sorry I can't help you more effectively. I can only say I can connect just fine. The usual advice that I'll just repeat is to try downloading the full installer and using that.

Good luck

Well in anticipation of such lack of support I went and installed bootcamp on my iMac and windows version 7 64 bit.

Now I have the option of running in windows mode or in mac mode.

While CRS is not announcing it...I wouldn't be surprised if they let the mac go at some point.

Not that I want that but....

BTW the bootcamp windows gig works just fine. Amazingly the setup up went without a hitch.

And...there's other games I now can mess around with.

Not that I have that much time for it though.

You might wanna try deleting the game, reinstall from a full 1.34 earlier version like .2 or .3 and then manually patch it to .4

Just an idea, might not work either but the patch downloader always gets stuck once it has downloaded the patch and never automatically installs it.

Installers and patches can be found here:

Did you install this:

Latest Mac full installer. What is "MCA update"?

It's pretty tough for me to diagnose connection issues like this from afar. When their one-offs they are usually something out of my control but I'll do what I can.

Start by installing that patch. Or wait a day until the 1.34.6 patch is ready for the Mac as it will also be a full install only.

What ever you do; please don't break the mac client. I have had 1 CTD and 2 CellHosts over the last month or so.

Of course the CHAT HOST crashes are annoying; but other than that my system has been very stable. Don't mess it up!
