That game is awesome, but it has a stupid online-activation and the servers are down, no chance to install and play it.

I think that was only for the Windows version of the game with its TAGES DRM system, but I don't know if such a thing made it to the Mac version.

We'll find out when it becomes eligible in April.

I own the original DVD but I can't install it.
VP support told me: "I am sorry but this game was discontinued years ago and we can no longer offer support."

Let's hope we can find a crack someday by the time April rolls around.

It will be difficult, but I am sure that there will be a solution (crack).
The game is buggy and performance is not good, but the game seems to be really good.
First version works on 10.6.3 upwards, has a 10.7 patch.
The MAS Version has got an update 2015 or so, so should be working on 10.8 perhaps 10.9 ?

I wonder if the activation thing is why we don't have FlatOut 2 and Europa Universalis 3 here yet seeing how those were also VP ports...

Well I have FlatOut 2 + a crack but I haven't put it here yet because VP still sell a re-released version on the Mac App Store and on deliver2.com. The new version requires Mac OS X 10.8 or later but I am reluctant to put my older version (v. 1.0) here just yet.

Understandable.

When do we get Riddick without "NOT WORKING ACTIVATION"...the 10 year rule must be over...

Riddick is a damn cider-port that refuses to start the second time on MacMini 2014 (10.11)
I am not interested in this anymore.
