LU For Macs - Officially Announced - Up for Download "Soon"! :D

Post by FD_LegoFan101 on Thu 15 Jul 2010, 7:34 pm

So excited, can't talk! Must quote! Razz

"Closed-Beta for Mac coming soon

We’re thrilled to let all Mac lovers know that a version is soon ready for download. And on top of that, our German testers will soon get to play the Closed-Beta in German! And the good news just keep rolling; we’re extending the opening hours which give you plenty of time to build, battle and explore!

The popular Property and Best Friends functionalities are not quite ready to wow you yet. We therefore need one more week to nurture these features, as they should definitely live up to both yours and our expectations!

Have fun!"

That's a very good news for mac user! And German!

It's change nothing for me, but for a lot of Beta testers that can't play LEGO Universe because they have a Mac!

Well, we CAN play... but the emulation deal is pretty taxing.

Makes my Mac hotter than a campfire. 0.o

Not the same with Mac-native games. That's a good thing. A very good thing.

That's great! I'm glad to hear that!

And hotter than a campfire: that's the best description of my mac during emulation I've heard. Smile.

By the way, I think it's done with Cider, which comes with SecuRom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Securom). Not a problem for you, Legofan (I think you've already got SecuROM: It comes with spore, too), but a brief "Heads up" to other mac users. Smile.

Well...

For one thing, I don't actually have Spore. Razz

For another, I looked at the article - and I can't see what is so bad about the program.

I honestly believe that LEGO would not approve of such a partnership unless they fully trusted the company that is making Cider/it's inner components. Wink

Embarassed ... Oh dear. Smile.

Sorry. Seeing as there's a user called Legofan101 there, I assumed they were you. Sorry. Smile.

Secondly, I realise not all of us think it's terrible, but I know that some people do, and that I should tell them about them just in case.
