No one with a PPC Mac below G5 @2.5GHz (Dual or Quad) would get GRAW to run. Those other high performance users (the Intel ones) are already able to run GRAW on their Macs.
Gameranger is no in freefall due to lack of games, not due to lack of summers over the past 3 years (
) but because there is absolutely nothing unique about Gameranger. The GR community used to be great for a good while, and always had some level of respect between those who were involved. The GR of today is no different than if it were a multi-million person PC community where people go around acting like jackasses and change their name the next day ... then repeat.
The small community is gone from the infinitely small Gameranger; and that plays into on one's hand. There's no way to change this, as we can't control who joins Gameranger. Ultimately, the only way for Gameranger to improve along it's path is for scott to start bundling it again, dropping stupid premium only features (see linking), and working towards Windows support when possible with games (or at least platform independent chat/browsing of games).
Gameranger is stagnant, and no amount of AoE series games has saved it yet.
