Have you located the "Call of Duty 4 Data" folder? Is it inside the "Call of Duty 4" folder?

LOL.

Looks like you haven't even purchased the game yet.

And you were silly enough to post that on this forum, where you [should] know that representatives from most of the big game companies frequent to pick up on issues with their games.
Expect ASpyr to get your IP address from MacRumors, and then get your name and address from your ISP. Then expect a letter some time next week asking you to appear at court.

LOL.

Hehe.....this happens all the time, especially on the shooters for some reason. We frequently run through the list of scammers and ban accordingly. Kinda lame that it happens so often, but we try not to worry about it too much.

Sorry if this a dumb question, but I'm a new Mac user (one hour into it...).

Can I play CoD 4: Modern Warfare on a 2012 MacMini (2.5, HD Graphics 4000, 4GB RAM)?
The list of compatible machines doesn't clearly (to me) state if I can use it or not.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, thanks.

I'm still a bit lost with all the different gfx cards, sometimes with small differences in name.

And then I read people saying the MacMini can't handle ANYTHING and get a bit afraid of ordering something I subsequently can't use... ;(

Thanks!

Marc is right Nuno, you should be good with that setup. Thank you for bringing this up actually, it reminds me that I need to update some of our MSR's for older titles like that.

You should also check out www.gameagent.com They have a MacMatch feature and all sorts of other tools to help you find the right game for your setup.

By the way, what can I expect to get from COD4:MW 2 and Black Ops1 and 2?

I keep reading that HD Graphics aren't good for gaming, so I'm always scared of buying something I can't really use...

The hd4000 will play every modern game at least on low settings. Since black ops uses the same engine as COD 4, it should be more than playable on medium.

You'll have to install MW2 through boot camp if you want to play it on the same machine, as it doesn't have a native port on Mac. HD3000 runs MW2 and MW3 just fine. High resolution, medium effects, no shadows.

The graphics card is NOT the problem with running modern games on a Mac machine. The problem is that Mac doesn't have updated drivers/codecs/DirectX 9.

Thats because they won't/can't support those gpus, but there are several people who have played CoD: BO on a Macbook Air without any problems.

Although I don't blame you for not buying Call of Duty....

I wouldn't pay for the Mac version of COD4 either. Brought it when it came out, it was a crappy port.

I play COD 4 multiplayer daily on 2011 IMac and it plays beautifully! In fact I play it more than I did on the PC! And I still think that COD 4 is the best for MP and the servers are thriving! Even gone through BO - not so hot on MP but playable!
