make it work on macs, please. Reply to this Post

This program has a lot of trouble running on OSX. Like, for example, they don't give us the newest versions of java and crap. So it'd be cool if you could work on making it mac compatible. I can play it, but it lags and is ridiculously choppy. So, yeah. . . thanks.

Well, while that's real insightful and all, you should have done two things before posting:

1) Read the support FAQ.

2) Read the text on the page you downloaded the game from.

Both of them cover the Mac issue.

Sure, the issue is covered.... but it isn't any less frustrating for the more impatient Mac-user community. :(

this issue has been addressed enough times already. to be quite straightforward: the problem isn't with the Ringers. the problem is with the OS X implementation of Java. when Apple gets with the standards, the problem will magically disappear. until then, email Apple. don't post here.

shh quiet with your logic >_> it's not Apple's fault, it's Java's for not being up to par on the appl esoftware. Or whoever makes Java. I think the newest beta works on the Mac version of Java though, I'm not sure, I'm on codeine right now so yeah. . .

Java on OS X is handled by Apple, I'm pretty sure (check out mic). they've gone to a lot of trouble to make it work decently well while adhering to Apple's HI guidelines, but they've some ways to go yet.
