Civ 5 multiplayer compatibility


Today I would like to talk about something that generally annoys me. Me and a couple of my friends were trying to play a game of civ together with each other. All of us had Mac running the same version OSX 10.8.5, most of us had the game from the app store except one of us, he bought it from steam. Anyway we though because we are all using macs on the same platform playing multiplayer with the Steam version and Mac app store would just work. Well it did not you cant even host a game with each other. And I do find it quite annoying that just because they are from different stores they cant work together.

  1. I was also playing a PC-MAC game with my roommate, both through Steam, and then one day his MAC updated Civ V and then we were unable to continue a saved game at a really suspenseful moment due to “Version Mismatch”. Boo!
