I have a SR MBP with a 128 MB GeForce 8600M GT card. I've been reading that many of Aspyr's ports, including Star Wars: Empire At War, have issues running with this graphics card. However, I downloaded and played the demo and it ran beautifully. My question is if the full retail version would play differently (i.e. would it have issues as compared to the demo) or am I good to go?

Update 2

Well, after playing for two months with no issues, the game now constantly freezes and is unplayable. The only difference from before is that I have Leopard now. Looks like we can add this to the list of thing that Leopard has broken.:(

That is a shame, I recently download the Empire At War demo on my MacBook Pro (in signature) running Leopard and it ran fine. Did you check to see if there are any updates for the game? :)

Yeah, I have the most recent version, which is 1.05. My user template is still locked, even after manually updating to 10.5.1 and Rosetta Stone is broken as well. It's good to hear that it's working for you, however.:)
