So I played Borderlands, and it was awesome, I thoroughly enjoyed the game. I saw the steam summer sale for Borderlands 2 and jumped on the chance to play this awesome looking sequel. Well apparently so did my friends.
My real situation is that when I tried to connect to my friend's game, either through the main menu or through an invitation I would be sent to the loading screen, then the game would stop loading and I would end up on the main menu. I'm wondering why can't I connect to his game, or why can't I fully load into his game. If it makes a difference he's on a mac and I'm using a PC, but we both bought through steam. Is there a level cap I don't know about? I'm level 8 and he's level 3. I hope someone here can make sense of my situation. And sorry for this huge wall of text.
From what I recall, Aspyr Media works on updating the Mac version, so if the PC one is updated, you can't play with each other until Mac users receive their own equivalent patch. Not sure if anyone else he's/you've tried joining were Mac or PC users.
Thank you guys so much for the quick feedback. And it's a real bummer that I can't play with my friend just yet, but hopefully the cross platform problem will be fixed soon. Thanks again for the responses!
