I really appreciate the resources here at CD Freaks, and the enormous amount of information compiled here has really made me appreciate my Mac games more (although they come out later and are more expensive than my PC games). Fortunately, most of the (limited) number of games that get ported to Macs don’t have copy protection yet. For instance, making a backup of War3:FT required no special steps to backup or run on my Mac (of course the hybrid disc I burned was unplayable on my PC).
However, the caveat is that if Mac game publishers do start using copy protection, I’ll probably be screwed since there aren’t such great programs as Alcohol/DJ/BW/CCD/etc. available for Macs. Are copy protection schemes implemented differently on different platforms/filesystems (Mac’s HFS+ vs. PC’s FAT32/NTFS), or could I just copy my Mac games with my PCs using Alcohol/DJ/BW/CCD (since they’re reading in RAW mode anyway)?
