I will now send my ticket in to QL asking this question== "Why is QL for OSX still beta after 2 years and do you ever think you will fix it?"
Basically.. you should bite the bullet..make a bootcamp partition and install Linux,XP or Win7.. You will then be able to play this game..Hello,
Thank you for contacting the QUAKE LIVE Support Team.
The Mac version is not as far in development as the Windows version which is why it is still marked as beta. Once it catches up it will of course be moved out of beta and to release.

Heee It's been beta for 2 years.. At this rate QL for OSX could become the next Duke Nukem (It took them 10-11 years?)
