Rust feels like it’s been in early access pretty much since the stone age, which is appropriate for a grueling online shooter in which you start off naked with a rock for company and need to scavenge and survive to find your place in the world. The full Mac version only came out in 2018, however, so in the interest of including a shooter in this list, Rust makes the cut.
Citrix receiver for mac 10.10.5. Span on multiple monitors when logged into a Citrix session via Citrix Receiver (or Citrix server). And on Windows XP on another PC. I often log into work from home and am unable to span the session to dual monitors like one can easily do when using 'mstsc' (Remote Desktop) by using 'mstsc /span'.
Click to expand.An 'iRony' not lost on me, not least as I'd built a decent Mac-native games collection at some cost, including a good number of titles that relied on Rosetta support. Having been left with hundreds of pounds worth of Mac-native games that no longer worked on my new Lion Mac, I decided I'd had enough of Apple in this one respect.
So I started looking at a gaming PC. I already had a cheap PC laptop & found Windows 7 to be not bad at all. Now I find that Windows 8 is at least on a par with Windows 7 for backward-compatibility with gaming, if not even better! Kindly note, IMO, no good guys or bad guys here, only business. Microsoft rely heavily on generating maximum sales of new editions of Windows, so really can't afford to pi** off too many of their users with hastened obsolescence. That includes gamers.
Apple can do, so simply don't care. Neither do I anymore. I'll always be a Mac guy, but my Mac is now used mostly for serious work & only a few Mac-native games thanks to companies like Feral.
But most of my future gaming will be done on PC. Click to expand.Thanks Michael! As you say, it looks a viable solution for some less graphics-intensive PPC games. FWIW, I'd previously caught your more detailed, excellent installation advice about this process in another thread, which I'm linking below.
Hopefully, it'll help others who are interested in taking this path: Kindly note, as my Mac came with Lion pre-installed & with some of my PPC games being quite graphically demanding, I was already leaning towards Windows for gaming. In my case, getting a PC (if not using Boot Camp) & rebuying various games in Windows versions was definitely the best solution. But thanks again! NB: see Michael Lax's clarification below re link: intended for 'SL client' not 'SL Server'. Actually the thread you link was my method to install Snow Leopard client into Parallels. Why Snow Leopard client instead of Snow Leopard Server? Because 'in those days' Apple sold Snow Leopard client for $19.99, while Snow Leopard Server was $499+!
Because Parallels comes with instructions to easily install Snow Leopard Server, whereas you will see from my old thread, I have to use a shoehorn (Terminal) to get Parallels to accept Snow Leopard client. There was a common Urban Myth that the Snow Leopard EULA prohibited the virtualization of Snow Leopard client in Lion or Mt. Lion on a Mac. Apple sat by quietly (and perhaps even with a smile on their face) as its shills propogated that myth, which of course resulted in the increase of sales of Snow Leopard Server. The thread you link was adopted by others to formulate instructions to install Snow Leopard client into VMWare Fusion (and perhaps VirtualBox, as well).
