We have truly exciting news, Sire! The Lords of our domain have just announced that Stronghold Kingdoms will be available for Mac on January 13th 2015. Aside from being the first game of its kind on the Mac App Store this is important news for all across the Kingdom, as Mac players will be able to fight with or against PC Lords through cross platform play on day one! Making the various worlds of Stronghold Kingdoms available to Mac players opens the flood gates to new armies and fresh-faced generals, all seeking an opportunity to challenge the status quo and battle alongside their PC brethren against mutual enemies. Come January 13th PC players will want to forge new alliances, win Mac players over to their cause and unite the two platform bringing forth the finest strategists in the Kingdom!

To celebrate this future launch of the Mac version, we are currently running a competition to win 150 prizes via Facebook. This ends on the 11th of January at 10.00am GMT - https://www.facebook.com/strongholdkingdoms

Yes, it will bring in a whole new group of players, wonder how things will change.

According to Wiki, they have 26 employees total, unsure about the size of SHK team.

I have downloaded it, Its allright although it reminds me of the beta version on the PC :P Its rather buggy and some aspects are pixelated and I have found that some functions also crash :) Ill keep using the PC version until my pc finally decides to break :)

We're a little confused about the Mac issues at the moment. We want to look into the issue and resolve it asap. If you guys could help us out and send in a screenshot of the SHK screen with the error showing, along with some details of your Mac OS name and version number, along with machine details. This information can be found within the Apple icon in the top left of the screen and then by clicking on 'About this Mac' and note (or send a screenshot) the details. The 'Storage' and 'Memory' tabs would also be useful to let us know about.

Also the virus checker, which type is it and the version number and have you tried allowing 'Stronghold Kingdoms' or disabling the virus checker for 10 minutes while running SHK ?

The SHK account you are using, is it an existing SHK account or have you creating an account from scratch ?

Please send the details into SHK Support -

or
