    Hi,

    A new mac-user here, just got the new macbook.

    Having som difficulties though.

    Can someone tell me where the best place is to download games compatible for mac?

    I am looking for games like command & conquer or Warcraft 2 or 3.

    Would really appreciate some help.

    Thanks.



    Pauli

    To download games, just go to their developer's site or just Google "Command & Conquer Mac" and so on.

    You can also find Mac games available at any Datablitz and in some Power Mac branches, or other Apple resellers, although you may want to call first.

    The official site is where you can download them. But I suggest you get the ones from Data Blitz instead. :D

    i am able to play DOTA(Warcraft 3) on GG on my mac.. but it does lag.. i just run it on Parallels.. i think it would be better to use bootcamp if you plan on playing games on your mac with the use of windows OS.

    @ phil: I saw a Diablo II battle chest pack in Datablitz Power Plant Mall about 2 weeks ago. You can try your luck there. Hope there's still one left for you. :)

    Folks, just a friendly reminder-- PhilMUG doesn't condone software piracy and illegal downloads. Discussions about them are discouraged as well.

    In addition, I believe there is already a similar thread that exists within this forum.

    Take note that original games from Blizzard have both Windoze and Mac versions in the same disk. So if you PC versions of Warcraft and Diablo try inserting it in your Mac. You may need to download a patch for it to install in OSX.

    I'm surprised no one pointed the most obvious place to download shareware and free games for the Mac :D

    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/games/

    As for Diablo II, it has always been a hybrid Mac/PC CD but take note that it is so old that it can only run on Classic MacOS. The solution? Download the OSX installer for it found in Blizzard's website.

    I buy my games here at http://www.macgamestore.com/. You can download the games from the site, and they'll give you sort of an activation code.
    You can pay via Paypal or credit card. HTH. :)
