    Transgaming's Cider. I can't even begin on how horrible this is. It maxes out at 2 GB of memory usage and then crashes to desktop.

    So what you're saying is that it works about 10000000x better than aspyr's !^&@%#&%#& port for TS2?

    I've never played the Aspyr port for TS2. It seems that the Cider port is a 32-bit app.

    you want Cider to be a 64 bit version to run a 32 bit Windows game?

    I refused to ever buy a cider game ever again after purchasing Battlefield 2142.

    Poor performance, and more importantly, poor stability.

    And (though this isn't actually Transgaming's fault), the expansion pack was never released for mac.

    They did the same thing with Command & Conquer 3 (which I did not own). Cider ported the game, but then never made a mac version of the expansion pack available.

    I don't really have any problems with cider. Most of the games that use it have worked great for me. Prefer it to whatever Aspyr does lol
