Hey,
I wanted to play Tibia and a few other games on my mac, I heard that someone could port them? None of us mac users can normally play these games,Mad but if someone could do something about this. Can someone tell me how to or could someone please port Tibia to the mac so us users who want to try it can play? Please help me out! Thanks!

I doubt any coders here would be willing to take on this project at the moment, due to the uDevGames 2004 deadline drawing close, but you never know...

Also, you don't give any links to Tibia; not knowing whether the project is open source, the language the project is coded in, or the APIs the project uses makes it difficult for any coders to decide from your post whether the project is worth the time to perform even a cursory investigatation...

By the way, from a quick search, if this is the game you mean, the source isn't available.

Kris, the Tibia MMORPG is *not* open source, thus we can't just download the source and try to port it…
