hey guys, i used to play SC2 on the PC. i'm about to try out the Mac version now. i'm using a friend's login account, would he see that i'm using the Mac client? or would it just show up as SC2? could he see that i'm playing it on a Mac?

thanks

Why, you worried that he might flame you for using a mac? :) And no it does not show what client you're using.

is there any way for me to check?
play with someone and ask if it shows your using Windows 8 or Windows 7... then if they say "it says your on a Mac!" then you know... but really, it doesn't report that info anywhere. Can you see what client someone else is using when you were playing?

ok thanks. i thought he could see what client i had via his battle.net account on the website. i just looked through the battle.net login page and couldn't find anything related to seeing what game client i was using.

can he see what game client i have via the battle.net account site?

As a person who's sat with SC2 running on my mac right across from someone playing on a PC, I can, with first hand knowledge, say that you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Save him sitting next to you physically, he will have no idea what game client you have installed. Additionally, the website makes no reference to what client an individual has installed anywhere.

Game on friend.

Okay, first: Why are you THIS worried about showing you're using a Mac? xD

Second: Uninstalling is that simple on a Mac, you really just have to drag the SC2 icon in the trash and empty the trash. If you're worried about anything, use AppCleaner.

thanks

App Cleaner is a 3rd party app, you'd need to download and install it. But in OSX, it is pretty much just a case of dragging the folder to the trash and emptying it. A few companies provide uninstallers (e.g. Adobe), but most do not.

I second the use of Appcleaner. Support third party devs that make good programs!

Not necessarily : most apps just put a little plist file in your preferences, but sometimes there's some stuff in application support as well. I use AppZapper to uninstall apps and it works very well. Give it a try.

Another point for Blizzard. Not only do they ship both versions on the same day (back in the old days they would ship both versions on the same disk) but they are so hardware agnostic people cannot discriminate! <LOL>

It sounds like he is using some one mac and wants to play this game and do not want anyone to find out and than will delete the game when he is done:):):)
