      I am new and also use a mac, so I don’t have NUMLOCK and it’s a bit different but most of these seem to work!

          Fuuny that Macs are so much more advanced than any other computer in existence. If a beautifully optimized, fast, and advanced computer isn’t “real,” then I never want a real computer!

            HAH how is a prebuilt over priced pc better than anything custom built? Custom built means i know what i have i know i can fix it i know its compattible with everything i know what im paying for and the actual value of it and i know what is actually in it. Plus i can pick and choose what i want to pay for based on knowing what i am going to use the pc for. try getting a mac that can run this game at ultra settings and maxed view distance for $300 bucks. thats what my PC cost to build.
