    I've got two purchased copies with 2 unique serial numbers. Have installed and deleted and dealt with EA "support" (and I use that term with disdain) on MULTIPLE occassions and have never yet been able to get a multiplayer game going.

    I have an imac and a mac pro. We have gotten as far as seeing each other in the lobby, but can't join games. We either got "serial in use" error or looking at firewall I see a bunch of errors like this:

    Nov 24 Firewall[46]: wineserver is listening from 0.0.0.0:56520 uid = 502 proto=6
    Nov 25 18:02:30 Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51154 uid = 0 proto=17
    Nov 25 18:02:34 Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51155 uid = 0 proto=17
    Nov 25 18:02:36 Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51156 uid = 0 proto=17
    Nov 25 18:02:39 Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51157 uid = 0 proto=17
    Nov 25 18:02:42Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51158 uid = 0 proto=17
    Nov 25 18:02:45 Firewall[46]: Deny wineserver data in from 192.168.0.194:51159 uid = 0 proto=176



    Does anyone have this game on multiple macs on a LAN working? If so, any possible tips to help get it working???!! I've got firewall setting to "accept all"

    Weird. I was able to play over my LAN (using my Mac Pro and a friends iMac) with no issues at all, no configuring of my router or firewalls or any of that.
