i tried asking this in the gaming thread, but no one answered my question , so please don't kill me

can you buy Battlefield Vietnam for Mac (i have a Mac OS X 10.5.3)?
if not, do you need the original (just 1942) in order to play Secret Weapons of WWII? (i'd rather not buy both)
i'd like to get a battlefield game (not 2142, though) but games for macs are kinda hard to find sadly.

p.s. if someone did answer my question in the gaming thread and i just missed it, i apologize ahead of time.

I don't really know what you're talking about, but if it's an expansion pack then yes, you have to buy the original.

I'm not sure. But I know that if you get the right chipset put into your mac, you can run Windows XP on it. Some guy had his set up that way, it was cool.

I had some great times with vietnam. But Instead of finding it for the mac. Just install bootcamp for your mac. It'll run windows on a mac, better than half of the pc's run themselves.

Mac: Oh hey windows, what's up?
Windows: Just playing.
Mac; Oh, what game?
Windows: All games.

It comes with OS X. You just need to get Windows. I think XP Home Edition is about $85 if you want to go the cheapest route. Or you can "obtain" it.
