I am gearing myself up to launching into EVE Online, doing a lot of reading etc. but then I find out that the CCP Client (Front End) doesnt really support macs. Okay I see that they don't discourage you from paying to play if you are on a mac but from some posts I read here:: EVE Online: Inferno 1.2 Macintosh Issues and Feedback - it sounds like I would be much better off if I had IT training.
Okay I have some questions.. I am on a new macbook pro so I am okay as far as the specs go, but
1. If I join I will be playing on my mac. I cannot afford to get windows and put it on parallel or boot camp. So I am wondering how difficult it will be for me? Some of the solutions offered on that forum mentioned above make my mind go blank.
2. Is a 13" screen going to be too small to enjoy playing EVE on? When I watch Seamus Donohue's videos the writing in the boxes is blurry and not at all clear.. as well as tiny. Okay a pc player I am talking to says it is actually much clearer.. but I cant help but wonder.
3. I have read the dire warnings about being susceptible to viruses thru EVE and that worries me a little as my Mac tech keeps telling me I dont need to worry about viruses or malaware if I am cautious and sensible about what I open. Are my worries about EVE unfounded? And if they are founded what do mac users in EVE do for protection?
I think that covers my immediate concerns.
