Command and Conquer 3 Bootcamp
I have a Macbook GMA950 integrated graphics chips and I'm attempting to install and run C&C3 on my bootcamp partion. I have successfully been able to install it, the only road block is that it won't run. I have patched it 1.09 and am able to launch the game, but as soon as I start the GDI campaign it quits with a reference to the game.dat file. I am unable to determine the source of the problem. I have seen other references of people getting macbooks with GMA950 chips to get C&C3 to run smoothly, I just need some instruction of how to do it. Thanks.

to be brutally honest mate i really dont think the GMA950 has what it takes. i think CnC 3 requires at least shader model 2 to run at all, though dont quote me on that, it does have plenty of shader effects though.
also, i could barely run the game smoothly on an old 9500pro i had. i played 10x7 all detals low, no aa no af and it stuggled.
now i know the 9500pro is an old card, but old or not it still has considerably more horsepower than anything intel integrated.
but if you must persist i would probably suspect that the problem might be driver related. make sure your intel graphics drivers are up to date because IIRC intel always had a few features yet to be enabled in their chips and that would only be done via driver updates so go check their site for the latest ones.
you might have to reinstall the game after you've done that, not sure though.

I know that technically according to EA it isn't supported for the mac portion. I have heard that it shouldn't run on bootcamp because of it being an integrated chip. I have seen screenshots of it running though on a macbook with a GMA950 ( http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...26#post4192626 ) If anyone else has got it to run under bootcamp with a GMA950 chip could you please post how you got did it. Thanks

Since the problems youre having are in Windows, I suggest that you post this on an PC-oriented forum.
Not trying to chase you away! ...But you'll probably get better advice there because more people have tried it, especially since this game came out for the Mac, so many people here would have run it that way.

C&C 3 TW Macbook no pro
So I have to ask one final time, Can c&c run on a macbook with what I have. I went to the Apple store and they said only dumb kid games and 2D card games will work. Any one try for real.

it works, at least for me.
With your specs, it seems like that you have a better one than I do.
The fps goes down for me, about 18 for me, but still, its playable.
Try using Windows XP and Voila! It WILL WORK!
