    I have a Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHz NVIDIA 8800GS iMac with 2 GB of RAM. It can run COD2 just fine, as it meets all the minimum requirements, but here's my problem; it runs at around 12 frames per second regardless of settings. :eek: Twelve FPS! Is there any way that this can be fixed? I am tired of getting owned when I play online, and the single player is almost as bad (that's when I get 12 FPS). Please, if there is anyone out there who is able to play this game with reasonable frames per second on system similar to mine, help me! I will be forever grateful :D. I have already tried contacting customer support, and they just said "try turning down settings, blah blah blah, maybe your system isn't powerful enough", and such. I know that I should be getting better FPS. Could it be because COD2 is so old that it doesn't support newer hardware like mine? I know that Mac ports of games run slower than their Windows counterparts, but this kills.

    Thanks for The Reply!

    I assumed that it could be a driver problem. I am sure that all my graphics software is up to date (I've been to the NVIDIA site, and they don't list any upgrades for my graphics card under OSX), though, so it must be that COD2 was designed to run on older hardware. I just read something on the gaming forum with a guy who has terrible performance on Battle Field 2142 on his Mac Pro with NVIDIA 8800GT. I guess I should just buy COD4, because I know that it was optimized to run on these newer machines. Again, thanks, and if there is any additional information that could help, feel free to post!
