How to install DayZ on a Mac

To my fellow Mac gamers on TD, here are the steps to get DayZ working on a Mac. I got this directly from the DayZ forums

1. Install windows on your Mac using Bootcamp.
Full instructions on how to install windows using bootcamp here

2.You must download a catalyst for your integrated video card
Go to this LINK
Fill in the information about your BootCamped Mac under "Download Drivers"
Download & install the suggested catalyst for you
ex: Mac Graphics > Apple Bootcamp > MacBook Pro > Windows 7 - 64 bit

3. See if your Mac is capable of running it.
Go to this LINK
Select ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead
Click "Can You RUN it?"
Note: Ignore the video card information, because it doesn't register the catalyst on this site. As long as your Mac is OS X version 10.5 or greater you should have no problem. It will most likely tell you that you failed, when in reality you didn't

4. Buy Arma II: Combined Operations, which includes: Arma II and Arma II:Operation Arrowhead, BOTH are required to install DayZ. I recommend buying it with Steam cause its all digital.

5. Install DayZ. I recommend that you use DayZCommander.

6. Play DayZ
