...when you'll make the Mac Client work properly? I can play many MMOs with my graphics pushed to ultra and I never have a single issue. I play LOTRO And it crashes as soon as I mount and go for a gallop in Rohan. I stopped paying to play and went to another game for a while because of this nonsense, giving you guys time to sort this out. It hasn't happened and I have to wonder why you're ignoring a segment of the gamer-sphere that would love to play the game natively without 80 dollar programs to make up for the fact that you want to sit on your laurels and just attract PC gamers alone. The fact is I can play on Windows and it doesn't look anywhere NEAR as good on my computer as when I play Mac Client. I have a powerful Apple and I'd like to be able to use it on a game I love, and be treated like the 2 plus years I was a VIP mattered.
OpenGL is easier to program and is better looking than DirectX. It's the programming for graphics that saved HALO and made Bill Gates have a stiffy to steal it from Steve Jobs. Don't believe me? Look it up. I find it hard(read that as impossible) to believe you can't find people experienced enough to code in OpenGL for you and make things work after Blizzard swept the deck of their programming department back in September of 2012, and all of their programmers are versed in both DirectX and OpenGL. This seems to me to be a callous lack of regard for the players whom you might attract, or those you believe will stay because of WINE or some other emulator like BootCamp. I've already had a 5 month vacation from LOTRO and I don't mind another 12 tending to my Real Life garden. But i'd MUCH prefer playing the game to an extended vacation.
Come on guys...where's your pride?
