How to hack your MAC version of Civ5 to work with 511

Just a note of caution, these instructions are not the intellectual property and CivPlayers and we take no responsibility for any damage this may cause your Civ5 install.  But it does sound like it works.

Hey there Mac players. I am sure some of you were upset to find out when Civ V updated a few days ago to Mac players could no longer play with PC users, well worry no more, here is the fix for you! =)

Note: Please back up your Civ V folder before hand incase anything goes wrong, but it won't

First open up the info.plist located here:
/User/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/Common/sid meier's civilization v/Civilization V/Package Contents (Right Click it to see that option)/Contents/Info.plist

Next find the following options:
Get info String
Version with build string

Double click each and change the values to the following:
Get info String:
FiraxisBuildString: 262623
Version with build string:

Click file up the top and hit save.
Now close that all up and launch your game and enjoy some multiplayer cross-platform =)

Note: I have played two games so far with my brother who is PC, and I was on Mac.
We completed both games with no crashes or problems.
