    Well i'm new to the whole computer gaming thing, after being a console gamer for a long time, i recently purchased a Macbook Pro (15 inch, 2.33ghz, 2GB Ram, 256MB Ati X1600). I purchased Black and White 2 today, and installed it using bootcamp, and when there is more than about 15 characters onscreen, it really starts to chug. Are there drivers i need to update, or something i can to to optimize performance, i have the resolution set to 1440x900, and detail on medium. I'm just wondering cause i see people saying that even newer games work great on high, so why should this one slow down on medium?
    thanks for the help!

    listen to me when i say, Black and White 2 is a Power Hog!!!! its hard to get high framerates on it without a REALLY high end COMP.:eek:

    this is true, i play HL2 with MAX settings (17"-2.00-C2D-Radeon X1600 128MB-1gb memory) and it runs well:cool:, some games just take a lot of power, take Oblivion for example.

    Well, i installed the two patches that are available, both with said they had better support for newer ATI chipsets (which i guess this was at the time), and it plays much better.
    Thanks for the reply anyways.
