Emperor on a Mac?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

sorry if this topic was already covered but any chance I could play the game on my iMac (I think I spent a part of my teenage years years playing these games, still remember the keyboard shortcuts even :P)

 

And if not Mac then how? I do have VMWare + Windows XP + Emperor but the graphics are bad and it's so laggy.

 

Help! and Thanks

Hey there,

Yeah, i am running it on a mac. Well, not realy, but for sure on a macbook. Bootcamp is needed.
I installed a bootcamp partition and bought a used emperor cd pack. I had trouble installing it, so i looked for some other installations in the www...it took me a whole evening, but finaly i got it running and with hamatchci also online. I never tried if playing a campaign could work, but skirmish and online works just fine on a macbook with bootcamp. only for some few shortcuts you need the "fn" key, if you wanna use the F Keys. I dont realy remember how i finaly got it running...Give it a try. Emperor is still worth it :)

the graohics on the mac are as they have always been and in skirmish games was no lag at all. i had not much online games but as long as i could experience, there was no lag there too.

i did it with win10. bought an licence for like 10 bugs. but i might have run emperor in xp-mode. i dont remember exactly, but i tried a whole night with different versions (cd, cracked ones and so on) til t was working. but if you have a working cd version it might be faster. my cd was broken. bought a used one...
