Tried to install the game, and when I open the downloader, after installing it, a box pops up saying "Initialisation failed, string table initialisation failed".

I have downloaded it three times, any idea what I can do to fix it?

Can you get a disc?

Any chance you can get hold of a PC version? You can install it from the disc. I had this problem with the downloader client and only a PC DVD fixed it.

Yes and no...

Are the Mac and PC versions on the same disc? No way I can get hold of it really...
You can get a 30mb installer from the WAR website and it allows you to install it from a PC DVD. Is it the patcher that comes up with this error after you have installed it?

Edit: Sorry, it is the patcher isn't it? Check the WAR folder and make sure you have read and write permissions.

Yeah, I install it, open it and that happens. So I will need to get that 30 meg file and the game disc?

Hmm, I just left it for a while, now it's working. Don't Mac users have to download all 10 gigs though, not just 1 gig and can stream the rest?

Letting me stream, cool.

One last question. Other than WoW and Warhammer, are there any other big MMO's on the Mac (And PC).

Eve Online, that is about it for major MMOs on the Mac and PC. There are more but none that are major as you asked.
