hey guys. i recently got a mac book pro, and i want to play battle field 2142 on it, i have played it before but lost my copy i went out looking today for it but i couldn't find it no gaming stores have bf2142 which is really sad, how can i get 2142???

now i see i can buy it online and then get origin but then i try downloading origin and it does not work since i believe it is a xp set up version, which makes me mad!!!!!!... now what do i do??? is there a way i can buy the game online here and then download it to my mac?? or do i have to do this dumb stuff for bootcamp assistant? if that cause i have to go out and buy this dam cd for that to.... please help i wanted to play this game as of tonight but it looks like i won't be able to get the game now?

nice nice, lol but not helping me :( i think so far the best luck i have i think is buy having to buy the game on ea for a pc platform, then do boot camp assistant with windows 7 64 bit right? but i would really love if i could find a disc for mac and buy it like that instead of having to get two OS's on my lap top :(....

looks like the mac version only ever got updated to 1.50 which sucks :/ but i suppose you'd be limited to playing other mac players on the same version then for multiplayer. not sure how many of them there'd be.

yeah just pm me if you want. remember you need a serial # to play online so if you lost that to you'd need to buy a new copy. bootcamp is pretty easy just run the assistant in utilities in osx then install windows like normal. you have to format the bootcamp partition in setup cause bootcamp only creates a fat32 partition for you.

umm nick if you were reading the game is out for mac but the patch that is the newest is not for a mac :( which means we would be playing a patch back and only with mac users, so it would be a very small portion of people playing id rather try boot camp and **** up my computer :)
