    System: 1.83 dual core intel, 2gb ram, 128mb x1600, 7200rpm 100gb HD. Macbook Pro.

    Settings: Everything on the lowest possible performance and graphics setting.

    Playability:Nonexistant. The framerate has to be like 5 per second.


    Conclusion:Don't bother buying or installing this game on an intel mac using OSX, ever. (unless a univeral binary patch is released).

    Interesting, it runs "well enough" on medium settings on my 1.83 GHz iMac :confused:

    Mine plays just terrible, maybe we have different standards?

    Interesting thread - I am a big BF1942 fan. Haven't tried it on my new Intel iMac yet but I intend to put a few games through their paces sometime. Will report back!

    It's just playing under 30 FPS (I think) in the demo of BF1942 on my iMac Core Duo 1.83 GHz.

    I'm having a blast playing UT2K4 and WoW though! Just wait for more UB's. It's great!

    Yeah I did a review before and posted it.

    I am on an iMac ICD and it ran at 20-25 fps the whole time. Perhaps you are trying a more graphical level than those that I ran, or perhaps there are more players on your level.
