Postby NightWind » Tue Oct 19, 2004 4:49 am

Is there any way to "modify"/"hack"/""whatever you call it--the FBI mod so it will work on a mac? :(

To make mods like that we have to have the Mac source code, which Contraband hasn't released.

Because they're a bunch of self-centered stuck-up good-for-nothing pricks.

Ah the old Mac better then PC, and a bump of over a year....

You fail.

Macs have good points, PCs have good points. Best point about PCs, compatability with pretty much everything. Don't see that on Macs.

Really? I'm compiling EXE files that use the DirectX SDK in VS2005 on my Mac. Without Bootcamp. Without rebooting. While typing this post in Safari (the Mac default internet browser).

In fact, possibly the only reason I still use macs is because I can cross develop for every major platform on it.

I'm not going to argue with you that the old Mac vs PC bickering is inane, especially when I see phrases like "we're way cooler" or "we can do more."

There was a time when one could do more in some areas than the other and vise versa, but that day has past. All of it is BS now.

Actually you can run windows on a mac now. Also, Macs can recognize PC formatted disks, but PCs can not recognize Mac formatted disks. Now tell me, how does that make PCs more compatible?

Your mother dropped you on your head quite a bit when you were an infant, didn't she?

Just go ahead and tell me I'm wrong. You'll soon find out that I am indeed right. Just try and put in a Mac formatted disk into a pc running windows. It will ask you to format it because it does not recognize the Mac format. Now, I'm not saying you couldn't go and buy software to make windows see these formats, the point is that you don't have to do that on a Mac -- they already know how to deal with these formats! What's more, is that Macs can also write in the MS-DOS format too.
