Hey, I just got the settlers 7 game over in France, and every time i click to play it it says my version of mac os x 5.8 cant play it, so I found out that it needs snow leopard to work, but I dont know if i want to buy a whole new thing. Is it possible to get an update or something to get it, or do I absolutely need to buy an attachment?

If you already own OS 10.5.8...then the upgrade disk for OS 10.6 is only $29 bucks...hard to beat that price!:)

Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)

There is no way to update. Snow Leopard is un upgrade not an update.
You say you got this thing for 50 euros.... do you mean Leopard, or the Mac?
If the Mac, what Mac is it, and what are the specs?
You probably can't upgrade past Leopard!

You won't get a new OS or OS upgrade for a better price. There are no online (legal) downloads of Snow Leopard. You'll be happy you upgraded.

It's always a good idea to read the hardware & OS specifications for a game or software application before buying it.

Then maybe you should:

- learn how to read French
- should have asked someone else to read it for you that reads French
- should not have purchased it if you weren't 100% sure what you were buying.

By the way...I don't speak/read French either. But numbers are numbers in French or English. So I'm sure on the box where the system specifications are the numbers 10.6.0, 10.6.1, 10.6.2, or 10.6.3...which would have told you that you needed this version of the Mac OS on your computer.

Since you only have 10.5.8 you either should not have purchased the game...or just buy the $29 10.6 upgrade disk so you can install the game.

It's really that simple!

p.s. You may also be interested to know...that since this is the French version of this game (and you don't read French)...how do you know that once you get the game installed that you will be able to read anything??? It may all be in French!!!

Second of all, the requirements were in the instructions and the box was in that plastic box thing like at blockbuster, so i only saw it after I bought it. the only way I knew it was snow leopard was the numbers. Plus i could pick the language in installation. Its an international game, given that it was made in Germany

Well then it sounds like all you need is the $29 Snow Leopard upgrade disk....which is what I recommended in post #2 of this thread.
