    PSA: Do not expect the Mac client to work, save your money/time

    Shouldn't have to do this

    Any time I play, I leave feeling like I should delete the client.

    ... because the game client crashes.... 3 times in a single game... and WG does not care about fixing the Mac client. Yeah. I know this feeling. Do what I do and don't feel badly about it. Delete the client. It takes 20+ minutes to reinstall the client. I am taking longer and longer self imposed breaks from the game. It is hard to get good a game when the client routinely crashes. I get probably even less mental reward than you are. I am going to take a couple of days where I am just logging in to get the daily shipment but not play. And then after that, a 2-3 day break.

    So that is why WoWs has a Mac version available for download! I never knew you were not supposed to actually use it. Silly me.

    Ocean - Need it in regular rotation

    I hate Ocean for the same reason I hate Go. I like asymmetry in the maps. Maps that are mirror images are boring.

    Did you buy a version of windows for bootcamp? How did you get your copy of windows?

    Good? (I think) to know.... @Mr_Conway has said that the client is great and no excuse for AFK which gave me the feeling that Windows client on Windows runs great.

    I appreciate the sentiment. I have a bunch of old computers and hard drives stacked up that I need to go through and discard. Adding to that stack is not good for the mess in my den. If anything, I should cut down on WoWs in general and spend time on other pursuits. More and more I am deciding that not playing WoWs is probably an o.k. thing. (or at least playing it a lot less) As a software developer, I just hate seeing a ***** product with crashes. Especially things like "out of memory" or "unhandled" exceptions.

    Update 0.8.2 - Bugs Report

    I would spend time telling you how to run the check tool but it would be a waste of your time since WG "customer support" will refuse to help. I have had some success with turning *all* the sound off in the settings screen. That seems to help a significant amount. (sometimes). I hear your frustration. But since I don't work for WG, nothing will come of my sympathy. Just walk away. I have been playing for years now and the response from WG has not changed. I was stupid and thought things would some how change. Even little things, like how to run the WGCheck tool or install the Aslain Mods loaded, I had to figure it out with forum help. Those mods helped my enjoyment of the game and got me to hang around longer. I really don't get WG's indifference to Mac users. But it is their choice, it just took a while for me to recognize this.

    I hear you -- I am > $1000 into WoWs game. It is impossible to enjoy a game when I know that any "good' game will be wrecked by WG indifference to fixing the client. I have had so many tight fights end with my client crashing.

    Try again ...this is a highend computer With SSD drive of course.... I will try with the sound completely disabled.

    Well I won't claim to be 'best' but I try. Can't do anything about the indifference though. I will probably login just to collect the daily shipment drops. But there is no point in working toward any of the missions.

    Played 1 more game to see what would happen... at least I died before the game crashed.
  14. TL, DR: To any new Mac players to this forum -- just uninstall and don't bother with WoWs I have been a (rabid/stupid) player of WoWs for several (too many) years now. I have tolerated my sh-crap-it PR ranking caused in part by all the Mac client bugs. I have tolerated the WG Customer Support telling me time and time again... "Mac client is not supported. Suck it up buttercup" The 0.8.2 client is a new low. Last week the pain started. I uninstalled, reattempted on Monday. Continuous crashes. Reinstalled today. The very first game - it crashes again. Looks like I will be seeing a lot more of the family. Supposedly, 0.8.3 will be "better" - I suppose that means it will only crash every other game. I don't remember a single client version that didn't experience midgame crashes. (I did mention I was stupid didn't I). However, not being able to play a single game that is a new low in indifference. Oh... and NEWS FLASH WG: I DID NOT QUIT - YOUR CLIENT CRASHES

    Update 0.8.2 - Feedback and Performance

    LOL. WG does not support Mac's. Try asking WG support for help and watch for the middle finger. Do what I have done: uninstall and take a break from the game. Maybe a long break. Seriously, WG wants your money without being willing to support the Mac client. @Gneisenau013 claims otherwise - but WG customer support keeps on saying "go talk to codeweavers" -- whoever they are.
