    I picked up UT for Mac today, and besides the uglier CD case and CD, i noticed that it was only one disc. On the PC version the second disc has all the textures for video cards that support texture compression. Does the Mac version not have this?

    That's new to me. When I rented a pc version it was only on one cd.

    There probably isn't any support for DXTC/S3TC in the renderers in the mac version, so epic or the porting company probably decided that there was no point in including a cd no one could use. That and at the time the game was released I don't believe there were any cards on the mac that supported texture compression.
