    I have Diablo 2, which is built for PPC macs, running through Rosetta. I expected it to be a little bit buggy but seriously it crashes every ten minutes. I figured maybe Rosetta just doesn't work that well until I got Neverwinter Nights 2 for intel mac and encountered the same problem.

    I have a new 13.3 in macbook pro with upgraded RAM and storage. I definitely meet specs to run these games. Are there any patches or anything that you can think of that I need to install before it will work smoothly?

    At this point I'm worried I'll never be able to use this laptop for any sort of gaming which is a bummer with Starcraft coming out soon. Any advice or encouragement would be helpful. Thanks!

    Check the game designer and publisher's site for patches. That's usually where they live.

    I did check the Blizzard site. I found a patch that was supposed to help with crashing but I haven't noticed a difference. I wasn't able to find any patches for NWN2 crashing though.

    Also, I have completely seen your screen name on Kingdom of Loathing. Small Wrld.

    Yes. I had to use the native installer to get diablo 2 running. Now that it runs, it only goes for 10 minutes at a time before it crashes unexpectedly. Thank you for your response, even though the thread is old I've just gotten into the habit of relaunching the application after a crash and hoping the autosave was fairly recent.
