    We need you! I have made a huge thread promoting the mac client for Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, based off of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) I & II.

    Head on over to this thread, register, respond and take the poll and make the devs hear us!

    I'm confused why my previous post was deleted after showing support for the game. :confused:

    I don't really know what to say, except I'd sign up if it was available.

    You only have to register for forums, go to the link and vote. The poll is actually a census to record how many people want this client. With the right amount of people we can definitely get the devs attention.

    Hey Iceman. I was looking for more forums to put our cause on, but you beat me to this one by a longshot.

    I recommend changing the title to: "Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG for Macintosh - Help us get noticed!"

    I searched for the major gaming and mac communities. I like your title a lot better than mine. Thanks mpen.

    I would love a Mac client, and I voted so in the poll, but the only hope of getting one would be to contact Simutronics and ask them to team up with Transgaming to make a Cider wrapper for HeroEngine games.

    I registered on their forum back when it was just opened and never visited since.

    Now, I login and agree with their terms, but it just brings that terms and conditions page again and no matter how many times I agree it just won't let me see their forum... :confused:

    Perhaps Safari 4 isn't correctly supported?

    Edit: strange, I tried it on MacBook (with the same version of Safari) and it worked right away...

    Signed, but don't put your hopes up. It's like waiting for a miracle.

    they should do a dual release of this game just like they did for The Sims 3... put both Mac & PC versions on the same DVD.

    DO IT! DO IT!

    Reply posted. Bring it on.

    I've already told my co-workers that when this game hits, I'm taking the week off.

    I did it for SWG, I'll do it for this.

    I'll sign, but BioWare doesn't care about Mac right now. We are too few.

    Maybe we can get a quick and dirty Cider port from EA. That would be good enough for me.

    That's just a placeholder date. The game isn't even in beta yet. The closest thing to a release date that has been mentioned is 2010.

    Quoted from SWTOR website:

    When will Star Wars: The Old Republic be released?

    No release date has been set for Star Wars: The Old Republic. To keep informed as to the status of Star Wars: The Old Republic, be sure to join our newsletter. We also encourage you to visit the official website to view regularly scheduled content updates.


    How can I get into the Beta Test?

    We have not yet scheduled the Beta Test for Star Wars: The Old Republic. We recommend subscribing to the newsletter or keeping an eye on the official website so you can be one of the first informed when this information is released.


    That said, I am planning on building a gaming PC in the next few months for all the games scheduled for next year. Specifically StarCraft II, Diablo III, FF XIV, and SWTOR.

    To hold you over though, if you haven't played Knights of the Old Republic go for it. If you have, try 2.

    I just watched the walkthrough trailer. Looks pretty awesome.

    Sounds like a good idea. I might have to do that too. BootCamp is fairly annoying after awhile.

    The linked thread over at SWTOR.com in the original post originated in 2009 and has since been closed. But it did have 100 pages worth or replies. I'd glady try a Mac client.

    I have no idea how much extra work a Mac client would be. If forced to guess I doubt Bioware will take the time but who knows?
