View Full Version : Easy way to get AA working on Mac?
Yes, I'll be buying a PC soon enough.
In the meantime, has anyone gotten AA working on a Mac with a minimum of hassle and hoops to jump through, with a mostly bug-free, normal gameplay experience?
I've messed with things like Wine & Crossover in the past, never with much luck.
Any help would be appreciated, I enjoyed Space Hulk back in 1988.
Not really. If those two apps failed, then there is only one option other than buying a PC: If you have an Intel-based Mac, it's apparently possible to set it up to dual boot between Mac OS and Windows XP.
I did not actually try to get AA running yet.
Was hoping someone would pop in this thread and say:
"Yeah, it's easy, just download this thing from <link> and there you go!"
I'm not a total tech neanderthal but running dual OS's is a bit beyond me currently.
Might fire up an old and tired PC laptop see if I can't make things happen.
Cheers for keeping the Space Hulk thing alive - especially with how you all set the difficulty level. Easy games like Space Marine are boring - where's the damn challenge? Achievements and unlocks - gtfo.
So, next up should be Battlefleet Gothic, Man O' War, Dark Future and Gorkamorka? :)
I did not actually try to get AA running yet.From what I've heard, it seems to work rather well through Wine. :)
So, next up should be Battlefleet Gothic, Man O' War, Dark Future and Gorkamorka?I believe GW's legal department would like to raise an objection to that. We're not touching any GW copyrights or trademarks ever again. :)
I was unable to make heads or tails of the Wine/Winebottler thing earlier today - got a source for that, i.e. a person that would know a bit?
Oh, and I can see how no-one wants to mess with GW's legal dept.
Managed to get it working in Wineskin - download from http://wineskin.doh123.com/ and then just open it up, and then right-click the .exe file in the AA download folder.
But animations are super slow, sound is scratchy and all in all not fun.
Hmm. I'm using VMware, which is, alas, not free.
Wine should work, but emulating is always like using a much slower computer to do the same task, and Wine isn't exceptional in this regard.
