Need for Speed Shift (Origin) for Mac!

Also Need for speed Shift works awesome in Origin! I can play this game in the highest resolution (1920×1080) with all shadows and environment settings on High if I want (motion blur/bloom excluded), on my AMD Radeon 6770M 512mb and Nvidia 640M. I used the Gamersgate (Origin) version which works out of the box. Simply get the Need for Speed Ultimate Digital Collection which contains 4 NFS games: NFS prostreet, and Need for Speed Undercover and Need for speed Shift + Need for Speed Shift 2! A must have collection for only $29! When not living in the US then get the Gamersgate UK version. Then install NFS Shift into the Portingkit as the video shows and play the game! Have fun!

Install instructions:
Open the Portingkit and download the “Need for Speed Shift” file and let the Portingkit install Origin. The open Origin and activate the Gamersgate version serial mentioned above. After downloading the game this one stucks at installing (one of the only annoying bugs), but you can easily fix this by quitting Origin (after a few minutes to be sure), and then login again and then you are able to launch the game without problems. BUT, before you launch you have to do one more thing…Go to your preferences of Origin and turn off  “ingame Origin” and “Automatically update the game” (select-box). If you don’t do that, the game will freeze at launch. So make sure this is turned off , also when playing any other game in Origin. Then click play to start (will ask to update, don’t do that). Have fun!
