Is there a working port of Bad Company 2 that works on MAC OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion.? I got it on my steam account with the serial number etc, however the game only works on Windows. I do not want to use bootcamp or parallels to run the game. I want to run it through the Mac OS directly.

Try using Bootcamp. It lets you run Windows on a MAC. – troll Dec 25 '12 at 11:10
@art I should clarify that I do not want to use Bootcamp – Render Dec 25 '12 at 11:23

Hello fellow Mac user and BF:BC2 player! There aren't easy way to play Battlefield on Mac OS 10.8.

First try using this but it should not work on 10.8. If you are afraid about legal issues check your country law about having a digital safe copy of product that you own.

If it don't work or don't want to be against law try with CrossOver Mac software. Install Battlefield by Steam in Codeweavers so called "Bottle" and keep your fingers crossed. It have Silver medal so it should be playable.

Parallels Desktop should also be fine.

But I give you some random opinion that I can't agree more...

Got it. Played for 15 minutes.

Deleted it.

Low FPS, and didn't like it as an FPS. Graphics were bad.

But thanks for trying.

And as you can see on my stats page I know what I'm talking about.

Install Bootcamp and own with 80+ FPS

Would it work on VMWare or Parallels ? – Render Dec 28 '12 at 12:49
Parallels will be OK. Check this (out of date but allways something) website - IMHO VMWare will not handle it. – iber Dec 28 '12 at 12:55
Thank you very much, im using bootcamp and I have a question, please check my other thread :… – Render Dec 30 '12 at 14:53
