    Hi all,

    Haven't posted on here for a while, but here goes...

    I want to run C&C3 on Macbooks (running Windows XP). We will be playing them on a LAN with several Macbooks, which is why I will be using Boot Camp. (Networking of any kind is not fun on macs in my experience)...

    Anyway, the Macbook specs are: 2,16Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1GB RAM, 64MB GMA950. Can my poor graphics power handle the game on lowest settings?

    Thanks

    Well without trying this my self I can not confirm it but some people have been able to get it working on low to lowest graphic settings on XP. Don't ever try with the Cider version It just doesn't support the GMA950 (Lets just says it's not the best card in the world. however if you look back a bit in the forum you should fin some helpful info on other threads. But if it is High quality graphics and and 8 player super match you are looking for I would go with a imac, MBP or Mac pro

    Apparently it is not supposed to work, according to the requirements and to what EA has said, however very few people said they have been able to get it to run on their MBP. It is up to you to spend the money and see if it will work.
