Playing SWTOR on my Mac

Due to the popularity of SWTOR, gamers on mac have been dying to play for some time now. Bioware has still not answered the prayers of these players. Instead, it was taken into the players hands to make a mac compatible version of the game. For years now mac gamers have been playing PC games on Boot Camp and Parallels or VMWare. Bootcamp allows users to partition a Windows operating system on their mac, but this takes up some hard drive and every time the user wants to switch operating systems they have to restart their computer. Parallels and VMWare are emulation systems of Windows operating systems and run much slower since they run Mac and Windows OS at the same time. Both these methods have flaws and cost quite a bit of cash just to play SWTOR for mac.

There is a recently developed Star Wars The Old Republic version with a mac port that allows mac users to play the game by using a software called Crossover Games.
