Mac OSX And BttF Ep. 3

posted by divisionten on - last edited - Viewed by 100 users

I'm going to sticky this for the next week or so so people can see this.

For those of you Mac users who purchased BttF without reading the General FAQ or the system specs listed in the Store- you need OSX-6 (Snow Leopard) to play BttF. It's been listed as such from day one.

Somehow, Episodes 1 & 2 of BttF also work on Macs running OSX-5 (Leopard). Episode 3, however, will crash on 5 and run fantastically on 6 (I've tried it- my father's computer is still running OSX-5, and I have an OLDER computer that's running OSX-6. Mine plays BttF glitch-free, his doesn't work at all).

The only thing I can recommend as a fellow gamer is to update your system. If you already have Leopard, Snow Leopard is not an expensive update. It's 29$ by itself, or an additional 100$ for iLife and iWork added.

  • We're actually working on something that will allow the game to work with 10.5.8 as well. If you'd like an update as to when that's available or if we have a work around please pm me your email.

    There is now a patch up for OSX5.8 users.

    Instructions:
    Delete your old BttF.
    Delete your browser cache.
    Download new game from the "My Games" toolbar.
    Enjoy!
    (If it doesn't work, try downloading through a browser you don't normally use- if you're a Safari user, use Firefox and vice versa.)

  • If we ordered the game through a different retailer (gamersgate, steam, etc) how do we get the patched version?
