It certainly is. I've played through several months of beta via bootcamp on my iMac and it has run great!

Only thing to really worry about is your computer's hardware but that is true regardless of the operating system :) If you have any questions regarding installation of bootcamp, windows or swtor feel free to shoot me a message.

As long as you have a Windows OS installed via Bootcamp or otherwise, it should work.

Yes. Installing Windows via bootcamp is basically a way to let you run any windows program on your mac. SWTOR is no exception.

Yes, it is posible. I tried it on an iMac and on a MacBook Pro (with windows 7) and no problems at all. I've been said that it works better with some virtualization software like Parallels (hard to believe, but possible. I didn't try it myself).

As long as your hardware is recent and has the needed processor, memory and gpu then you will not have any issue running SWTOR this way.

Even with my gaming laptop i need settings pretty low to get a decent FPS, so if you're willing to run low settings I'm sure you will not see compatibility issues.

Yeah. I've read a good number of posts about SWTOR working quite well with Boot Camp. :)

I have a work laptop that is will not, I boot camped my mac (i have pro from 2010) and it runs perfectly, the only problem is that my hardware doesn't support high level of graphics which is sucks so after spending about 40 hours of game time with sith jugg level 30, I would definitly would like to transfer my experiences to a powerful gamers PC or laptop :

A Mac using bootcamp+Windows IS a PC, nothing less, nothing more.

What bootcamp assistant does : - partitioning your hard drive to set up a Windows-compatible partition (fat-32) - downloading all Windows-drivers needed for your specific hardware setup to burn them to a disc or put them on a thumb drive and install them from Windows - installing a program in Windows to automatically update your drivers on a regular basis.

As long as your Mac fulfill the game system requirements and you have a Windows DVD+licence, you're ok.


On a side note, TOR runs pretty well from Parallels Desktop 7 on latest Mac rigs. Nothing stellar but it is good enough to do some questing without having to reboot your whole computer in Windows mode.

We are half a dozen playing TOR from Macs with bootcamp in my guild and the game runs as it would on any other PC.
