I have been playing CNC 3 for weeks, with my graphical options set at maximum. It has run great, smooth and a LOT of fun. One day it began chugging. Real bad, FPS was around 3, and selecting units took 3-4 seconds. So I turned all graphics down to minimum and this did not help. Same thing. I reinstalled the game, and reimported my save game files, and it worked again for another few weeks. Until yesterday. Same symptoms. I reinstalled it again, but this time no fix. I always run both 1.08 and 1.09 patches. Oh, BTW, before reinstalling, I always boot from OSX disc 1 and Repair permissions and disk. What a great game. It is frustrating me, though. HELP! I have a MBP 2.4Ghz with 2MB ram with a GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB VRAM. I have around 13GB of free harddrive space.
