i did a search but i can't search for keywords 3 or less charaters and 'wildwest' just gives me everytime someone said wildwest :S

anyway, is there a mac version? i looked on rtcw.filefront.com and didn't see a mac version, so i'm thinking there isn't but it's best to find out... i'd check http://www.the-wildwest.co.uk/ but it isn't loading (6PM -8 GMT).

I don't believe there is an official mac version, but there is a person, whose name escapes me, who has successfully played WildWest on a mac by using a DLL switcher. Hewster will be able to elaborate.

great! thanks! downloading now, can't wait to give this mod a go. i've heard great things of it. :D

[edit]i've gotten the file, but there is no WW dll switcher :clueless:. is the change needed just a filename change? because for the MovieBattles II mod (Jedi Academy) to work on mac you need to add a '_' at the beggining of the filenames of the dlls.[/edit]

Hmmm... I'll see if I can find who actually got it working.

You may have to manually replaces the DLLs yourself. Keep copies of the originals so that you can play RtCW proper. If you happened to be in North East Ohio, I'd drive over to help you out but...

I'll let you know more info as I find it in my email archive..

When you unzipped that file, it should have gone into your RtCW directory. It should have created two directories. One named WildWest, one named Mac WildWest Loader.app

I think you should just be able to double-click on the Mac WildWest Loader and get it to run.

Then follow these instructions... Mac WildWest ReadMe

Mac WildWest Switcher Due to limitations in the Mac version of Wolfenstein, several Wolfenstein system files must be changed whenever you want to play WildWest, and changed back whenever you wish to play regular Wolf.

The Mac WildWest Switcher application makes this process simple. The first time you launch the Switcher, you will be asked to locate your Wolfenstein folder.

When you wish to play WildWest, simply select the "WildWest DLLs" bubble in the Switcher and click the "Load" button. When you wish to play standard Wolf, select the "Wolf 1.4.1 DLLS" bubble and hit "Load".
