    I really like RollerCoaster Tycoon, and I'm thinking about buying it for my Macbook.

    System Requirements
    1 Ghz G4/G5 or faster processor (1.25 GHz recommended)
    Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
    256MB RAM (512MB recommended)
    2GB free hard-disk space
    Radeon 9000 or later or GeForce FX5200 or later video card
    32MB VRAM minimum
    DVD drive

    My questions are about running under Rosetta, the video card, and the video RAM.

    Thanks so much. That guide is perfect.



    Edited after reading aforementioned guide and reviews on apple.com:

    The answer is NO.

    I tried it when I had a MBP, and it was very slow. Probably just because of Rossetta. Just wait for the UB, which is coming soon, then it should fly.

    Yep with rosetta it has serious problems, runs perfect with bootcamp though.
