Play between Windows / Mac OS

Post by homerbhoy »

Hi

I am trying to play a network game with my friend but I have a Macbook and he is on Windows. Is it possible to play a network game this way or do we both need the same operating system?

Cheers

Im not 100% sure, as only really experienced in Windows only, however,

On Macbook, if you're able to Play CM like normal, able to install/run Hamachi, then I dont see there being an issue, as thats the program you'd use to connect to the host

Isn't there a program for MAC that runs basically a windows OS within it? WINE or something IIRC.

You could try that if direct connection isn't possible but like OT says the protocols for communication are likely the same for hamachi on both machines.

Don't have any knowledge on Apple at all, never liked them :D
