    I was a big fan of this game ages ago so I purchased the anthology off ebay cheaply to use with bootcamp.

    Has anyone got this installed?

    does the 9400 do a good job

    Well looking at the system requirements, I think you JUST might be able to. :rolleyes:

    500 MHz Intel® Pentium® or AMD Athlon™ processor
    128 MB RAM
    32 MB video card which supports Transform & Lighting and with DirectX 8.1 compatible driver
    DirectX 8.1 compatible sound card

    (http://compactiongames.about.com/cs/worldwariigames/p/bf1942_sysreq.htm)

    Looking at the 9400M, which by the way is DirectX 10 compatible and has 256 MB RAM, I think it will be possible. :rolleyes:

    Yes, the 9400m should have no trouble running this game on high settings, except for possibly anti aliasing.

    Works with all the Settings UP!! (on the 2.4Ghz) , should not be a difference on the 2.0 Version!

    I can play HL2 on everything set on HIGH also... :D

    pff its a dumbed down version for consoles, the PC version is an after thought.
    3 Kits and 3 Maps. and only 24 players:mad:

    yeah, but the explosion effects, destructible objects, and the bomber shack are all cool additions
