    Hey there Mac players. I am sure some of you were upset to find out when Civ V updated a few days ago to Mac players could no longer play with PC users, well worry no more, here is the fix for you! =)

    Note: Please back up your Civ V folder before hand incase anything goes wrong, but it won't :)

    First open up the info.plist located here:
    /User/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/Common/sid meier's civilization v/Civilization V/Package Contents (Right Click it to see that option)/Contents/Info.plist

    Next find the following options:
    Get info String
    Version with build string

    Double click each and change the values to the following:
    Get info String:
    FiraxisBuildString: 262623
    Version with build string:

    Click file up the top and hit save.
    Now close that all up and launch your game and enjoy some multiplayer cross-platform =)

    Note: I have played two games so far with my brother who is PC, and I was on Mac.
    We completed both games with no crashes or problems.
