    guys, i´m about to buy a Macbook and i already have a few games (WoW, UT2004, etc..) if i install one of this PPC games i guess they´ll run under rosetta....ain´t there a patch or drivers out for PPC games to make em UB ? or should i just buy the game AGAIN so they´re UB to play them in my macBook ?

    one last question...will my UB games run fine in my G5 iMac?

    I'm not a gamer, but my understanding is that they released updates to those games long ago to make them Universal so that they can run without Rosetta on your MacBook.

    And yes, Universal software will run just fine on your G5...it's universal. :D

    There are patches for most recent games to make them UB, including UT2004 and WoW. As for other games, check the Mac Guide for Universal Games [link].
