So, Mac OS X support is going live next Tuesday. Anyone in closed beta has any updates for us?


Where did you read this? I must be blind, I am however very happy about this news.

O_o

I do hope the public release will offer the following (OS X 10.5):

- waaaaaay better performance (currently getting 50-75% LESS fps under OS X compared to Bootcamp/XP)
- fix for sound bug
- People to shoot ;-P (ow, could that be because of Multiplicity?)

Seriously, the framerate is a serious issue, I don't even want to think about going into fleetbattles with this kind of fps (15-30 at most).

What type of mac are you using? If you are on a MacMini - I would completely understand. :P

I understand your disappointment then!

Hoping for a good experience on my MacBookPro when it is live tomorrow... crossing my fingers.

Might it be a difference in the servers? Have you tried connecting to the test server while in windows via bootcamp to see if the performance is the same there? I have had great performance as well under bootcamp on the live servers - but I would love to have a reason to 100% rid myself of having windows on my mac - as that is the only reason I keep it around. BUT - if performance is unacceptable - like you are seeing...

I guess the question is will the new wrapped client be any better than the current Cedega+Windows client that folks are running now? I have been a long time subscriber of Cedega and if there is nothing notable I would like to just keep things as is so as to not bork my current installation.

Edit: Just read the official client notes and the Linux version does NOT support ATI yet Cider does. What is even more disturbing is that I can get EvE to play fine on an older laptop using Cedega and it has an ATI 9800 mobile chipset. Am I missing something here?

Good point! However unfortunately I was unable to patch the Bootcamp client to connect to Multiplicity so I'll just wait until tomorrow.

Like you said, if performance is unacceptable, Bootcamp stays (which would be a major no-no) Evil or Very Mad

It's not even the discspace (that WIndows gobbles up at an alarming rate), but more the mere fact that M$ resides on my shiny Apple ;-)

Like you, I only keep Bootcamp around for Eve. Let's pray today will see the end of that as I will quite happily slam ERASE and end an era of Bootcamp ;-P

Don't install the official client. From all reports it breaks any existing Cedega installations.

I run Eve in Wine - I couldn't get the official client to load or even give an error message, so it looks like I'll be sticking with that for the time being.

As for the ATi thing, I can only assume it's because ATi Linux drivers are in such a bad state and CCP/TransGaming don't want to have to deal with all the issues that ATi/AMD are ignoring.

Actually the new AMD/ATI drivers are fantastic and offer performance equal to or better than the nVidia binary blobs on high end hardware. As for the fubaring of current Cedega installs yes I was well aware of that and won't even bother trying. I am currently running Cedega+EvE without any hiccups same goes for Wine+EvE. Until I start reading about good experiences and painless installs and stable gameplay I am staying away from this wrapped mess.

I took the liberty of starting a new topic on impressions and problems for the Mac client. Please feel free to post!
