it won't work on lion. 10.6.8 or older only. Or windows boot camp. Or some windows emulation software for OS X like wine maybe.

No Lion Support, you can install a sperate partition of Snow leopard or boot camp and run the PC version.... Both of which are annoying....

If you have parallels you can run either windows or snow leopard in that, or you can install sheep shaver (OS 9 emulator) and run the OS9 version...

I would recommend installing the PC version in a wineskin... Then it will run as if it were the mac version, no hassle no fuss...

I actually have d2 setup in wine on my 10.7.4 partition, i didn't bother doing boot camp or 10.6.8 setup. Unfortunately wine currently has an issue where it can only play it in windowed mode. unless it's been fixed since i last tried it.
