Mac updates?

#1 Posted by Romination (2774 posts) -

So I got Civ V yesterday during the steam sale and installed it and everything, but when I tried to play with my girlfriend, it said "version incompatibility", or something of the sort.

Do I need to update Civ? Her's is completely up to date. Also note I'm running a mac, so does this mean I get the updates later?

And yes, playing on a Mac means I'm new to gaming on computers, so if this is a really stupid question, yo dog, I don't know this shit.

That's weird. If you get Civ V through Steam on a Mac then it ought to give you the correct, most-up-to date version of the game. Have you tried looking at the Steam forums? Might be better off asking there.

I'll reinstall just in case and if nothing I'll go asking around there.

The Mac version lags behind a bit in term of patches. They will catch up in a few weeks.

Is she on the PC? I don't think Civ will play multiplayer with one person on a mac and another on a pc. Because yes the Mac version doesn't get updated when the PC version does. I've seen it take as long as a month before it was caught up.
