I've recently installed this game with the latest updates from the 'Virtual Programming' ( the guys that have 'produced' mac version ) and its starting to drive me mad ! The game is visually stunning running it on new mac pro with hi-res screen but there is a major problem. It keeps crashing. Now normaly thats a pain in the arse but given that this game is a slow evolving reality that you spend months building your empire and trading etc etc it doesn't help that almost every hours it shuts down, but worse: It then re-sets itself demanding registration codes - which when you enter It then refuses to accept. The only support I've managed to get from 'VP' has been to delete a 'Cider' folder in preferences. This allows you to use your legit registration code and lets you back into the program but then starts you back to scratch with no saved games ! Support can only come from 'Virtual Programming' as 'Egosoft' ( the games designers and support for PC ) are hands off for Mac issues. 'VP' have taken five days and counting to answer simple questions. Anyone else here got this game running ? any secrets ? - short of demanding money back for the purchase ?
