    Wirelessly posted (Opera/9.60 (J2ME/MIDP; Opera Mini/4.2.14320/554; U; en) Presto/2.2.0)

    I had serious issues with gaming in Windows 7 with bootcamp.. I tried Age Of Empires 2 and 3, Halo, Rise Of Nations, as well as Counter Stikre Source. Only AOE 2 and counterstirke 1.6 worked. I then decided to install Xp instead and now all those games work amazingly with no issue. I also tried COD4 and it work quite well also, the problem was Widnows 7 was giving directx issues but xp seems fine. This is all on my June 09 2.53 mbp 15"

    Forgot to mention, it's the 2.0 ghz model with 2 gigs of ram (i'm going to upgrade to 4 gb ram within a week or two)
    Were you using the rc or the beta because the rc gave me a boost in performance on my windows computer with the x3100. or is it a bootcamp only issue, if thats the case how long would everybody think before games stop being supported by xp?

    The MacRumors Windows Gaming on a Mac does have a section on Mac performance running Windows games, but the titles listed there don't really reflect today's games. If you/anyone have any games you know runs well on a MacBook or any model Mac for that matter, feel free to pm me and I can add them to the guide. Please include what model Mac and Windows OS you are using. Thanks!
