We are Mac users too, and the author of this guide has done a lot of research on this topic while trying to get a working for Mac. It's no secret that for Windows it's straightforward to log in-game. But for Mac users, it requires some additional steps. At Zremax, we wanted to make Mac users capable of playing Cataclysm too. There are three different ways:

  • 1: Use Bootcamping. It basically splits your Mac up and lets you have a Windows version on the Computer. When turning on the PC, you can decide whether to start using Mac or Windows. Downside: It requires a restart each time you want to switch between Windows/Mac. It will take up computer resources and disk. You will have to use Windows too.
  • 2: Use Parallels. It's however expensive and is not running so well either.
  • 3: Our recommended option. It will be explained right below:

What we recommend: The third option. Once you get it running, it works really smooth and decent. Read about it and figure out how to play on a to get into gaming on your Mac machine again! The linked article goes in-depth with the process and gives you a better overview. It also lets you know of the pros and cons by using this fix, compared to just running Cataclysm on a Windows PC.
