    I was "told" by the apple store that if I buy Call of Duty for mac that I will not be able to play my friends in multiplayer mode who have PC's?

    Is this true?
    &
    Why is this the case?

    Thanks all...

    Psshhhh.

    I own Call of Duty and its expansion pack United Offensive.
    I play with my PC buddies every day ;)

    Either that, or there was 1.5 mil Mac gamers I didn't know of :O

    I have Call of Duty for mac and my friend has it for PC...how do we get multiplayer to work? Is there something like "gamespy" we have to download. As far as I know, I heard that Gamespy stopped supporting Mac gamers.

    If anyone knows how...please let me know.

    Thanks.

    As far as I'm aware you just need to make sure both Mac and PC copies are patched up to the same version number. From their just go into Multiplayer and create/join a game.

    In case you didn't know, there are two Call of Duty applictions, a single player one and a multiplayer one. Make sure you open the multiplayer one. ;)

    just choose a common server thru the multi player function of COD. I play with mostly PC users. In fact I have asked during play before if others were on a mac and I have usually drawn a no comment or just a "???"

    You will have no probs.

    The bigger question is Will we get COD2!!! I have played the demo on a PC and it is absolutely freakin amazing. The graphics are top notch and many added features. Can't wait for the port!!!

    I always remember to mention I'm on a Mac. I'm not half bad so I always enjoy mentioning that they're getting wasted by some guy running CoD on his Mac. And you know how a lot of Hardcore PC Gamers feel about Macs :D

    Recently I've gotten a few people say they're running on a Mac though...

    As for CoD2 yammer.. well it's not been released for the Mac yet, so no chance. It's min specs are in the G5/MacTel range.
