Woot! April is gonna be a busy month for Mac gamers!
Good news! April is gonna own.
April is gonna be beast. Beta and Steam coming to mac. This is going to turn the mac gaming around.
Now if only the new mbp's would come out, i'd be all set to play
It still has months of balance to go, and the thing it is only balanced for the average and noobie. I am ranked in the top 10 of my platinum league and there is still work to be done . Some of the issues probably sound crazy to most people but they are required if SC2 will last and last as a competitive esports game.
As someone who is currently testing the PC beta, I can assure you guys its worth the wait.
Got my beta access!
Ok so I just got my beta key for SC2...
There is one problem... the client isn't on mac yet! What shall I do? My macbook pro's CD/DVD drive is not working so I cant install windows (bootcamp) what about parallels? would that be possible?
I imagine that it would be too slow in Parallels. Just wait, it will be here within a few weeks.
Just for the heck of it I installed the PC client under Parallels 5 a while ago (Win7), and it runs playable.
This was with all the settings on Low, second smallest screen resn - but plays fine enough. If it's that or waiting for weeks well I know what I'd do heh.
This was on a 3.06 iMac btw.
Yeah that might be a problem... I have a Macbook Pro 2,2, 2.33ghz,core 2 duo, 2GB ram and the worst thing ever... a Radeon X1600 (256mb) vram...
Ill be trying with boothcamp and a wired dvd player... Any tips?
Are we able to opt-in on the beta for mac yet?
Well if you are playing in bootcamp you should have no problems at all. SC2 is very forgiving with hardware (Blizzard is cool like that). I'm not a video card person but from what I gather, your card should be good enough.
In passing I have to say that's something that really impresses me about SC2, compared to say WC3. For some reason WC3 always felt clunky to me, even on good hardware. I always felt like the 3D glitz was slowing me down, and much preferred SC/BW. But SC2 plays just like SC/BW. Very very nicely done and a great relief.
Hope it works for you!
WC3 really doesn't have much as far as graphic control; it came out too soon for that to be properly implemented. There are controls that can help a little, but SC2 is much more accommodating.
Be on the Lookout: Our Beta Invites Have Begun!!
My StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty Beta Test Invitation arrived at 00:56 this A.M.. Mac OS X all the way... no Boot Camp. The flood gate for Mac opt-inners has apparently been open. Get ready to enjoy, boys and girls. Been waiting so long, I feel like some sort of celebration is in order .
Weird, i cant find any info on the Internet about the mac client... When you don't get access to SC2 beta mac client, you just get an account. And for now, you can only download the PC client... Sorry, i think you are wrong...
If not, I would appreciate for you to direct me towards a mac client download link! TY
quick question. how come mine, it always keep patching itself back up. everytime its done, it redoes the patch and etc <_<
edit; n/m had to go to my computer to get it to work(PC VER.)
I remembering hearing in the beginning those who opt-in are completely random, the blues don't even look at their specs, unless they need a certain group of specs. Specifically there was a guy i remember on the forums who had received a key, (via opt-in) and only had submitted mac specs, and could not obtain the mac client.
However I would love for you to prove me wrong, it has been too long.
Now that I better understand what's been going on, I'll have to verify if my over exhuberant claim is true or not. I'm afraid it'll have to wait until after work and my daughter's Birthday dinner though. Sorry in advance to have gotten anyone spun up unnecessarily.
Everyone here should opt-in, if they haven't. You can opt-in anytime for Mac. Make sure you do it soon on the battle net login. Don't want to miss the initial Mac beta release.
Well as I have said previously, i just got my account up...
But when i get to download the client...
only this appears and the «MAC» version hasn't been activated yet...
Yeah, I just got my invite too, a few minuets ago. When to download the client and it was windows only =( now I'm looking for my windows xp CD key to try and run it in bootcamp.
You are a lucky one... I have my Key... but cant install Windows as my CD/DvD drive is a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857D and it failed after installing an update...
For those who got the beta key, when did u guys opt in? I opted in today, do you guys think I have a chance?
Opted in 3 days ago... got it yesterday.... it really depends on your computer's specs... I think they want to test the games reliability on different machines... I Got in with these specs... lol
It doesn't matter when you opt in. If you opt in today, you have the same chance as me, I opted in months ago.
