i was thinking about purchasing a new MBP SR, 2.4GHz, 256vram and i was wondering if Battlefield 2 will run pretty smooth??
did you install the MBP update?maybe it is only me, but i experienced a lot of random crashing with the demo version. It seemed to crash everytime i started a game or changed a setting somewhere. It will usually play after a few restarts :-\. In terms of performance, it works pretty well, tho not as great as I would have wanted it to. It is certainly usable, but not as smooth as, say MOH spearhead.
Why would even think you'd get it for free?BF2142 runs just fine under Windows XP SP2 on my 15" 2.4GHz SR MBP. I've got it at native resolution and all the video settings cranked up to maximum (except anti-aliasing, which seems to cause periodic blue screens). I just hope that I can get the Mac version when its released for free instead of having to buy it again since I already bought the PC version...that would suck.
I'm sure if I got the Mac version I'd be tempted away from doing work, whereas rebooting would be too much of a hassle. Always have to look at the bright side.Without a doubt. No one ever gives away anything for free.
But just run your pc version in xp, its probably the only way you'll get great performance (I do).
do you think its worth it if i was going to get a new MBP and i wanted to play these games on it or will i be disappointed and have to upgrade within the next couple of months? i really like macs because i can edit my photos but i also like to game?I just play mine on the MBP's screen, the resolution is high enough that I'm not worried about running out of screen space. Of course I've never gotten accustomed to a larger sized screen so I can't really relate the difference.
If you are strictly speaking about games already out like 2142, you'll be happy with the performance, and that will stay the same. Now, for a game like Crysis, we'll have to see how that runs.do you think its worth it if i was going to get a new MBP and i wanted to play these games on it or will i be disappointed and have to upgrade within the next couple of months? i really like macs because i can edit my photos but i also like to game?
