Oh yesss that would be awesome.

iPad would work perfectly with the existing GSB UI, also here as some sort of motivation:

I just bought GSB for the Mac. It's a great game... I like that I can play for a few minutes or take my time with it for a few hours. I've been working on getting my friends to buy it so I can crush their hopes and dreams on the battlefield.

If this game came to the ipad, I think my head would explode from excitement.

Also, is there any chance that the Galactic Conquest mod will support multiplayer at some point in the future?

Question about the RedMarbleGames mac version updates (which I know aren't the responsibility of Positech): I haven't played in a month or two, and decided to boot GSB up again. It said an update was available, so I downloaded it and it attempted to install. When it was finished, it said that there was a problem installing it and told me to email RedMarbleGames with "error 2" and let them know what happened. However, my game says the current version is 1.56.0, which is the newest Mac version, correct? So... did it update or not? It said it didn't, but it appears to have done so.

So, I have searched all over looking for this, but can't find it. How does one start completely over? I downloaded the game from the app store, and have enjoyed it, but want to start over and apply things I have learned. How is this done on Lion?

I wouldn't think so because it is similar to say buying, oh..."Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" for Xbox360 and then wanting to buy it for PS3 after your Xbox gets the RROD.

Same game, different platform.

My guess would be no.

Maybe but if you go back to the start someone asked if he could get it free for mac if he had bought it for windows and was told yes.
I want to know if it would work the other way.

Right. I didn't read that. So did you email Cliff?
