Yeah, uhm... Here it comes: Ive been looking after for this game for some time, but Ive always left the ideea of getting it alone, because the games made for windows and I have Mac! :x

But God damn I want this game! So, is there any possibilities to get this game to work on a Mac? Would appreciate it really much if someone would know a way...

But anyway, thanks in forward!

Only if you use some emulator, maybe... the same way it can be run under Linux with Wine.
Is yours an older Motorola-based Mac or one of the new Intel-based ones?

Well, our mac's from the year 2006, so it's quite new, do you have any experiences about those MacWindows programs? Mostly just, that are they virus-safe?

No idea, my experience with Macs is too limited. But if your Mac is from 2006, it's likely it's an Intel-based one.

Wine is Open Source software, so there's no reason to xpect any virus in it... get it here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/darwine/

I suppose Dapper Dan could help you, he runs Trespasser under Linux using Wine, so he knows the software better. I'm moving this topic over to the TresLinux section to draw his attention...

As far as I know, the code of Darwine is still in unmature state. It's not ready for running win32 programs yet. I suggest Crossover Games for Mac if you want to play Trespasser in Mac.

http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxgames/

They provide a 7-days demo for you to try if your game works. Then it's up to you if you want to pay the money. Note that by purchasing CrossOver, you are also help Codeweavers support WINE project. The company and the developers are working very closely to improve Wine.

You miss the lameduck day, unfortunately. Codeweavers gives all products for free downloading in 28th Oct.

Old thread, sorry, but --

Tres will run under Mac OS X; not sure what the emulator is, but a friend at college saw me playing it one day, and we managed to install it on his Mac.
