    Well I can get the game to run, just fine, with the graphics turned down all the way. But after about 3 minutes of gameplay it will just crash? I downloaded all the patches, and I'm running it on vista.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    What type of macbook do you have ?

    I'm running bootcamp 1.3 with XP and C&C3 runs amazing... 17" 2.4 MBP though.

    I would first try running it on XP... vista always slows down gaming anyways.

    It is probably a Vista thing. Try turning down all the Aero effects if they are turned on. For gaming, it is best to use XP instead of Vista if you can. The games run much better with XP.

    Bootcamp drivers are for windows xp. The problems you are having will be due to immature drivers for vista.

    It's the lack of video memory that is the problem. After so much is going on in game, it can't handle all the stuff ingame, kinda why sometimes during the game after playing for 10 minutes or so, if you move your camera down to where the enemy's base is, it just crashes. So, because of the lack of a dedicated GPU in the macbook, C&C3 is unlikely going to work anytime soon for Macbook owners :(
