2 people marked this as a favorite.

We announced Macintosh Support this morning!

Goblin Squad Member

A lot of people will be happy about this.

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

This is going to make alot of ppl happy!

Goblin Squad Member

Yes! Now you just need to get the word out to the Mac community, and your funding will be done in short order. Mac users have very few native MMO options.

Goblin Squad Member

Glad to hear it! This means my girlfriend can play it with me.

Goblin Squad Member

Agrees with Zan glad to hear that mac users will be able to get in on the great game.

Andoran Goblin Squad Member

Next you just need to make an announcement of Linux support!

Goblin Squad Member

Hey GW,

Will PC and Mac share the same server, or will it be two separate worlds?

Cheers,

Daniel.

They have one world. There is no reason Mac would require a separate server since it's only a slightly modified client to accomodate the Mac architecture. Once it leaves your computer it's all the same to the server.

I sent out contact/news tip emails to a bunch of places: Cult of Mac, Inside Mac Games, Mac GamerHQ, etc. Hopefully there will be some press from this.

Awesome!!!!!

I bought my partner a IPad 4 this Xmas, and I am so looking forward to buying her a new one ( version 5, 6 or 7) in 2014 so I can keep her "old" one and use it play PFO in some way while I am on lunch break at work, waiting at the doctors or governmental office, while attending "fun" family activities, while shopping, waiting for a movie to start, or any other downtime where I am nowhere near my gaming PC.... :)

That raises an interesting question.. Will there be things we can do on more mobile platforms (iPads, other tablets, even smart phones) that will affect the game? DUST 514 is going to have the Vita app, for example. EVE has EVE Gate which afaik can be run on anything that a web browser can be run on.

It might be cool to allow people to set up manufacturing jobs, or modify the list of items they sell in their tavern, or even just passive observation functions would be useful too like viewing a tavern's inventory to see if you should log in and do some foraging or buying to keep your stock up.

Goblin Squad Member

This is cool news. Will it be on iOS as well as OSX, or just desktop/notebook platforms? I would love to be able to play on the iPad, but I understand there are some significant barriers to porting a game to iOS, even from OSX...

Goblin Squad Member

It's announced for OSX (for Macs specifically I believe). There has been talk of functionality use on smart devices eg (iOS - which Unity is capable with), but that's far off for now and not exactly for playing PfO: but who knows for the future with the rate smart device hardware is speeding up? Probably that and Cross-Platform need some FAQ addition, I'd guess?

MMORPG.com just caught wind of this so some press there.

Likely.

What I want to have is a Facebook-style social network tool that features characters instead of people. That tool will replace things like forums. It will be accessible everywhere you can make a web browser run, and have calendars, reminders, notifications, chat, etc.

Good thread here.

Goblin Squad Member

Secured my enthusiasm... Not that it was in doubt. Honestly I just demand a time machine to hurry things along now.

Goblin Squad Member

I do hope there is an app

1) character skill training

2) local ah control (i hope AHs are limited to settlements/player nations)

3) settlement control

4) your NPC control (for say your smithing operation)

....etc.

Sending "Tips" to mac rumor/chat sites ASAP. I wish my finances would stomach a 500 dollar hit again, but I don't think I can really justify a speculative entreatment drop like that again. At least not until I'm out of grad school and employed again.

I'm very happy to see Mac support. It'll also make any Let's Playing processing much simpler. As it stands any time I want to make game videos I have to recored in Windows and then boot back over to OSX to process. It'd really speed things up to dump right into my Mac side screen casting software.

Goblin Squad Member

& Massively have just covered it, too. Wonder if Unity will do a press release on this?!

Goblin Squad Member

dis very awesome thank yu GW!!!!!

Perhaps a flood support from all eight Mac-only gamers will clinch the deal.

That's harsh!

Don't forget Console Peasantry.

Frankly at this point us PC gamers (be it Windows/Mac/Linux) kinda need to not be knocking on each other. Not with most game companies dropping us all together and going pure console.

AMEN. It would, of course, be a nice bonus to be able to use the stuff I've been kicking.

A quick Google makes Wine, at least, look hopeful.

Goblin Squad Member

I'm just glad the Mac platform's been added, as a relatively dedicated Apple user.

Actually (as someone who uses his Mac frequently to game, particularly when traveling) I took it more as most of the people who use their mac for higher end gaming already bit the bullet and installed boot camp.

That is awesome! Good to see some of the better projects finally giving the Mac a look in. And in a development environment I use often! Go team. Proud to be a backer.

Grand Lodge Goblin Squad Member

Awesome all good games are Mac compatable.

Goblin Squad Member

And thus my kickstart donation is finally given.
