Does anyone have any extensive experience running either the Mac version or running off an external HDD?
These are kinda two separate topics, but I'll save a thread. I'm running the Steam version of the game on a 2012 Macbook Pro Retina. Hard drive space is limited because I have a the 251 GB SSD. I've split the drive down the middle between Bootcamp (Win 8.1) and Mac. I had been running the game on the internal Bootcamp partition with no problems, but I need to clear a lot of room for Attila and won't have enough disk space for both games.
I'm debating which OS to run the game on going forward. I also am going to be using an external hard drive (an old 1TB internal drive with an enclosure, attached with USB 3.0) to run the game. It's not ideal performance-wise, but it's necessary because of the limited space.
So far, my Mac version has crashed a few times. I also noticed that when using the first-person camera, it doesn't always let you turn 360; it's more like 180. I'd prefer running the Mac version but not if I'll be missing out on any features or have frequent CTDs. I'll be running the DEI mod on whichever OS I use. (If it works out well, I might even try running Attila the same way.)
