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.

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

I've been wanting to play this for years, but never had a device for it. Because, You need to choose how big your Windows drive should be. To calculate the size: Windows needs about 20 GB to function, then you need some space for your game. GTA V takes 65 GB, so that is 65+20=85 GB. To make it performant I rounded it up to 100 GB. But it depends on how big your games are etc.

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
