Hello,

I am a fellow Mac user and would love to see Grand Theft Auto V (5) on Mac. It is coming to PC, so why not to Mac? Vote for GTA V to come to Mac here: https://www.change.o...st_created=true

I hope together, we can find a way to bring GTA V to Mac.

Cheers,

Adam

Its not happening

 

Not enough demand

 

The best you can do is play it using Parallels, which has a bit of negative effect on the performance.

If GTA 4 can't make it to OS X platform, neither will GTA 5

There's this great OS by Microsoft called Windows that you can install on your PC. For gaming, it performs much better than OS X.

 

The best thing about it is that it's actually made for PCs so there's not much hacking involved, you don't need to mess around with boot loaders, perl scripts and patched kernel extensions.

If you are running OS X on an actual Mac, install Windows on it and play the Windows version. Macs can dual boot and run Windows natively.

It's great if you like games but don't want to "pollute" your precious production environment (ie, your expensive MacPro used in a recording studio or for graphic design and video editing)

 

Prepare to be disappointed, unless you own a MacPro with a fast Kepler card/ATI equivalent or better, there's no way you'll be able to play GTA 4, much less 5 on your Mac.

GTA 4 is finished in a haste attempt by Rockstar ( like a bad port from console ). It was never optimized enough, so you need high-end specs to play it. My old Asus laptop can't even play it well on low settings

The only real good way to play it would be wineskin or cider, but even GTAIV needs an high end mac to make it playable...

 

here a link to the wrappers thread on porting team.

I tried using a wrapper for GTA 4 but performance was never as good as it is on windows. 

 

My suggestion:

Want games = install windows.

I agree with you, mostly for a game like GTAIV (a bad console port) but most games runs perfectly, Wine is really a powerful piece of software.

Just let me correct this.
