Is there currently a demo for Halo that is universal binary? because the current halo demo runs horribly on my iMac I think because its a PPC version:eek: :eek: :apple: :apple: :apple:

I don't think there is, you have to buy the game for it to be universal.

Stinks doesn't it?

How bad did it run? I was running the demo at 1920x1080 on my MacBook Pro and it was playable, although it didn't run as smooth as natively in XP on the MacBook.

Clcik the halo icon so it is selected then press (in finder that is) command(which is the :apple: button) then I while still holding command, then you shoudl eitehr see the words Universal or Power PC.

"Perfectly fine?"

Then you haven't played it on a real machine. Running the original Halo on my iMac G4 with all settings on low was as slow as it running on my iMac Core Duo with all settings up. This of course was the PPC version.

The UB version runs much more better as you can imagine. It could play at a steady 30 FPS with the proper settings.

Yes I could imagine it runs nicer as it is UB, but I just want to enjoy the demo b4 I save enough money to buy my friends 360 WITH gears of war... so is there no UB demo then?:apple: :apple:
