Bleh...I didn't know this forum was mainly just filled with users...I just signed up...
I came over from the EA website in USA...
Yeh I know bootcamp is really just a set of drivers that runs windows but you would think that with the rising market share apple have that somebody may have done something in their own time or something to find a fix if it does not work...
I am not a apple fanboy by the way and apple **** me off all the time with incompatibilities but using an imac does have some flexibility that I enjoy over using a pc.
So it would be nice if somebody has purchased first decade and has got it to work to post something...
I know for some games i use poweriso or daemon tools and it still always asks to put the cd in even though it is mounted. This happens sometimes whether i have bought the game legit or dl when i am using windows xp with bootcamp.
Anybody with an imac or similiar device tried using first decade with bootcamp running Windows xp and got it to work with no troubles?
Have you tried Google?

Sounds like that's a yes, with exception of RA2 online (that's done by XWIZ)
Apple's market really isn't rising all that much...more so for iOS than OSX. Sorry. And TFD is old, outdated software anyway. Why are you assuming that it's broken when you haven't even tried it or tried searching for it? That just sounds like faulty glass-half-empty reasoning to me.

some games work and some don't...rather not buy something that does not work...
c & c is one of the most popular games of all time...it will be remembered for a long time i'd say...bit like sonic and warcraft and many others...
For retail home consumers I would say yes for business definitely not but that is not what it is marketed towards...(regarding apple)
The masses prefer simplicity...the masses are dumb...the masses also like looking at porn and not getting viruses most of the time
Guilty until proven innocent is my approach to all games that work on windows via bootcamp
The bootcamp is completely irrelevant. If it supports XP you can't get it to run it's your fault.
This.The bootcamp is completely irrelevant. If it supports XP you can't get it to run it's your fault.
heh, I am a student not living on much...Yes the game is not much but i rather spend my money on other things...like housing...
I thought this was an EA website with EA technicians with nothing better to do except it looks like im talking on a forum of whingers lol
"The bootcamp is completely irrelevant. If it supports XP you can't get it to run it's your fault."
That is a rather simplistic point of view. So I shall reply by saying my post regarding an immediate answer has become YOUR problem! (as you replied and wasted your time )
Just because it "supports" XP or Windows doesn't mean it can run all applications on it. e.g. Nero burning software doesn't work and many more
Thank you for the google search. I was hoping for some sort of response from EA personnel with nothing better to do, except i got a worldwide response from fanboys who like to whinge.
Yeh, i saw those posts before but i was hoping to speak to some EA geeks.

Then call a customer service rep. If you want to speak with EA, you go through official channels; as with just about every company with a fan-based message board. Even if EA techs roamed this forum, is that attitude that you had in your first post really the best way go about asking a question?
Truth be told, if you were actually concerned about your finances/housing, you wouldn't be looking to purchase TFD, now would you?
heh I thought that they would look at that post and see the humour in it. Actually spending money on entertainment isn't wasted as it helps to sustain a mental equilibrium, for example study a bit, then play games for a bit as a reward. Spending money on a game that doesn't work on the system that I have sounds like a poor investment.
Customer service reps tend to be useless. You really think an engineer is going to stop work for 5 seconds and say yeh you can use blah blah on bootcamp. I doubt it. Forums are faster most of the time. You guys responded pretty fast! Thumbs up!
Nero worked fine for me on my MacBook...
oh and by the way: an iMac is a pretty poor investment as a student as a student who has no money. Oh wait, right you bought hardware from apple, thats why you have no money. Makes it even poorer in my opinion.
