Thanks smartass.

I'm talking about a program or whatever that I need to mod RVS on my Mac.

You need exactly what ferret said. There are no modding tools for RvS on Mac.

Didn't AA switch to the newer Unreal Engine on the last update? I doubt it would work if it did. Although I don't know how much of the game format changed between engines.

Trinity, you cannot make a RvS map with a Mac. The map editor only comes with the PC version of the game.

I learned a process, you can use Unreal Editor to open a ut2 file (a map file) and export the wireframe. Open the .utx files it uses and export those as dds. Import the wireframe into Raven Ed and import the .dds files into a new .utx file (becuase rvs wont use the original for too many reasons to list). The only problem is that you have to retexture the entire level.. but its not that bad if you have endless amounts of time (which I dont anymore)

this is how i started my aztec project.. which I'll probably get back to as soon as my work schedule is back to normal (& the real reason i havent finished a damn thing ive started lately)

I wonder if you can export those lovely .aao files and find some half-ass good way of playing Weapons Cache on RvS.

rumor has it that Ryan Gordon is going to port not only the new engine of unreal to linux and mac, but the editor itself.. i would like to back that up with a link.. but I'm too lazy to google it.

I had heard that rumor too. Doesn't really help much now though since it will only be useful for new games that use the new Unreal Engine.

I talked to Ryan in an email awhile back since I know some of the AA [DEV] team and they said they've dropped support for Mac and Linux as a result of Ryan Gordon not porting anymore Mac/Linux versions after 2.5
