Yeah, it's the same as on Windows. With the exception of the filepath to your tf folder, everything is the same.

Ignore the right-clickers; it's older than mOLD.

it's the same except you cannot use the -dxlevel command. -dxlevel refers to DirectX, which is not used in the Mac version. OpenGL (-gl) is used instead. AFAIK you can't change the version of OGL used because TF2 requires the most recent version.

OpenGL is a totally different graphics technology. I'm not even sure if it uses 'levels' in the same way DX does. It's like asking if you can switch to Mac Vista.
