    and here is another site about the open source project to get this game to the mac i think its the main site of the developmant for the game
    http://www.realtimestrategies.net/forums/index.php?act=idx

    here is a site with alot of info about the project

    http://wzlinkturret.1go.dk/

    and heres what i was told from there forums

    *Work was started on a mac port back in March,
    *After a few weeks they were discouraged by network code & we haven't heard anything since.
    *in answer to your question....
    *If there are enough Mac coders interested & persevering it can happen.. till such a time, I'm afraid our current resources can only cover windows & linux.
    *Mabe you could drum up some interest in the Mac Coders community ?
    *We are always looking to welcome more knowhow & talent to the project.

    this game only came out for windows but they released the source code for it and these people already made a linux port of this game and they are trying to port it to macintosh they need help so if any one out there think they can help go to the link above .plz this game kicks butt and they want to make it a realality but need help to do it

    I wish I was a coder so I could help out ... but I'm not.

    Any games for Mac is a good thing.
    I know there are some awesome coders out there who could spare some time in the MR community. So don't be shy :)

    I do. I played Warzone 2100 in PS1 some years ago and I was addicted to it. But I haven't played it for too long because the performance was crap.

    I still want it for mac, though.

    I think a lot of people were probably like me, thinking "Yeah, that'd be cool, too bad I'm not an experienced Mac coder"....

    Inside Mac Games, of course, though this was already a (short-lived) topic there back in April.
