    I know that most of us here game on Windows. But I'd like to see more games brought to Macs. That being said, would it be difficult to create a Mac version of Cortex? And all other Razer software, for that matter?

    @Toucanjake I think you have your answer; The Razer Staff voted NO.

    It shouldn't be up to the staff. If customers want it, make it happen.

    That makes no sense. Just cause a customer wants it doesn't mean they should make it.
    Macs are known for not running games so making things for it is just a waste of their time and resources.

    I don't think you quite know what you are talking about. Macs are not known for "not running games". Games work just fine. The issue is that developers know that market share is dominated by Windows computers, so they focus on producing games for that. Take a look at Valve. Their games are both Mac and PC compatible.

    All you need to game properly is a good graphics card. It doesn't matter if it's a Mac or a PC. And it's up to the gamer, the customer, to choose what system they use. I use both. Why should I have to be handicapped just because there aren't as many Mac computers in the world as there are ones that run Windows?

    This is getting slightly off-topic. Windows support doesn't need to be neglected in order to add Mac support. That's the bottom line.

    Umm ... it shouldn't be up to the creative forces behind all the Razer projects we know and love? ;)

    While I see how the demand could create the supply I also can see why a company would choose to specialize in one particular area, especially when it comes to operating systems and their software.

    I use a macbook air as an everyday computer and a high spec PC for gaming, all we are saying is it would be a little bit more convenient if cortex was on OS X. Just because it's a slightly better operating system.

    It's pretty simple. Go download Wine open Cortex with it and configure everything to your main folder :)Z)
     
  10. I think that there should be equality on every product that came out. not just buy another unit to do a different task they sould make it compatible on capable systems that can run the same.
     
  11. My Very low end mac runs games just fine so we might not need the game booster feature and we can always backup the saves to dropbox or google drive ourselves but the game market we would use.

    I totally agree with this, half of the time I am gaming on my MacBook Pro Retina and I would really like to increase my FPS and try the screen recorder.

    The issue is, Windows progress would slow down quite a bit. And, there may be complications due to Apple's tendency to completely lock down all third party features.

    Sure, why not? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    If Razer can invest the time - go for it!

    So why do razer synapse have OS X version ? And why all blizzard games have oax version ? ( except overwatch for now )Even elderscrolls online. / guild war 2 / upcoming mmo developing by original eq creator pantheon: rise of the fallen or games run on CRY engine like homefront:Revolution are going to have OS X version ?

    I have a 13" MacBook Pro Retina, and it runs everything near perfectly. Minecraft at 200 or so FPS, TF2 at over 100 (there is no FPS counter, so I can't be certain) and any other games very well, all on a 1600P screen. Macs can game if the developers support it. You just have no idea what you are talking about.
