While most of the maps out CoD and UO maps out there (mainly multiplayer) actually seem to work for the Macintosh version of the game, there are not a few maps (usually of high quality) that, for some reason or another, refuse to play for said systems.
Here are but a few that I have tried to play, and the error messages I have recieved: RNR's subpen multiplayer map: "cannot cast undefined to bool" Falaise villa multiplayer map: "MAX_PATCH_PLANES" VikingWiedel's Stronghold multiplayer map: "setCullFog: near distance must be less than far distance" Yorkshire Rifles' Aachen SP map: "Can not give player weapon without having an empty weapons slot" (this appeared even after setting set developer to 0)
Now, there have been maps (even SP ones) that I have managed to play on my CoD and Uo games. The "Ardennes" campagin and both of Leon's COD SP map packs work in CoD, and I am able to play USMCSharp's "SP Town" duology fine in UO. I am also able to play most MP maps on their respective platforms.
Yet the aforementioned problem remains.
Why is this condition (that I, a Mac player, cannot play maps that give PC users no problems) and what can I do about it? (And no, I will not buy a PC and a its versions of CoD and UO. :P
Nothing you can do. MAC is unfortunately not support by most map makers. They make them for the PC version.
I agree with Tally, and lots of people hate Macs, me included. Tough luck
Actually, if I'm not mistaken, the files should work with both PC and Mac versions. I've never seen anything like "Mac compatible" or anything like that.
Maybe I should take this problem to Infinity Ward's forums...
