# 1 STO's Mac Beta now Live!
11-04-2013, 11:43 AM
Hi Captains,

As you may have heard, STO's Mac Beta starts on Tuesday, November 12, 2013! Stay tuned to our website and this sub-forum for more information and download links. This will be an Open Beta, and once it starts, please utilize this sub-forum to post about any technical issues in regards to Star Trek Online on Mac.

We are very excited to bring you STO on the Mac, and look forward to seeing you around the STO galaxy!

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

Not sure what the minimum system requirements are for the Mac version. I have a Mac Book Pro with 4 GB RAM, Snow Leopard OS, and wireless broadband connection (my Win7 desktop PC is the one directly connected to the external modem). Don't remember what the graphics setup is (resolution, memory, etc.).

Definitely looking forward to giving the Mac version of STO a spin and getting myself properly dizzy with delight.

YAY!

I am curious whether the Mac client is a custom coded application? Or is it an adaptation of Wine?

Also, as mentioned above, a list of minimum requirements would be nice.

I have the 2012 Macbook Air with the 2GHz i7 Intel processor and 8GB of RAM and 512GB of flash drive storage. That should be fine

Awesome, thanks Brandon!

If it helps, I'll be able to help with the beta quite a lot. I've got about 12 various models/years/builds of Macs and I'll be happy to test this out on all of them.

I currently play STO on Macs using Bootcamp. I dabbled in Wine a bit, but the experience wasn't desirable, thought I wasn't very proficient at setting that up.

Snow Leopard isn't advanced enough, you need at least Lion, OSX 10.7.5 to get the client to launch.
