    People who use Macs or Linux, could you visit the following website and tell me if the game works for you? If it doesn't work, could you tell me what happened, preferably with a screenshot?

    Thanks.

    I'm running Safari on Leopard.

    Going to the page prompts for a plugin to be downloaded called Vitalize which should get the game working.

    No, sorry, I cheated. It's running Firefox in VMWare Fusion.

    The plugin is Windows only. It has nothing to do with ActiveX as so many people seem to think (notice their plugin will also run in FF and Opera), the Vitalize plugin is strictly for Windows based computers, no way around it. Safari will accurately report what plugin is required, but it just isn't compatible on a Mac at this time, regardless of browser. I've tried installing it in the OSX native version of Firefox, Camino, Minefield, etc. and it just doesn't work. The webpage for the Vitalize plugin even states it is a plugin for browsers on Windows only:

    So, it will use ActiveX on IE-based browsers and has Firefox/Opera plugins as well...as long as they are on Windows. Sorry!

    Is it a webpage of your or something? why don't you use something like Ajax, flash or even *gasp!* Java? Active-X is restricted to Microsoft systems, not a Web standard and it's a wormhole for all kinds of malware in the Internet.

    Even if there was an Active-X for Linux there's no way in the world I would install a browser plugin that lets anyone take control of my Operating System like that.

    Thanks for your help everyone. I asked the same question over at Mac-forums.com and in less than 10 minutes my profile was deleted and I was accused of spam. So I made a new username and posted a message letting them know I was not spamming; I was only trying to make my games accessible to mac users and within 5 minutes my profile was deleted again.

    Just so you know folks, mac-forums.com is really making Mac users look like pricks and it's hard for me to justify the time it would take for me to convert my games to another format like Flash when this is how I'm going to be treated.

    Stay away from mac-forums.com. From my experience, the administration is mostly a bunch of douchebags over there. I had a similar experience a while ago with threads getting deleted for no apparent reason, when it was questioned, my account was deleted. I think you'll find the most helpful bunch of people somewhere like macnn.com or the boards at macrumors.com aren't bad either.
