    Emulating Hardware T&L support Is possible with the tool above.


    Infact using this tool I got my macbook 1.83ghz core duo with 2gb ram to run supreme commander under vista. :eek:

    On low/med detail (set fidelity to low or it seems to want to crash) then either set textures/detail to med or low (it works on both but its down to how fast you want it to run)

    The game is most defiantly playable, well I haven't gotten into a big battle yet, so not sure weather it will slow to sloth's pace then

    should work with other games that require a hardware T&L capable video card to run, can't say how fast they will run tho!

    I think speed is helped considerably by the fact the mac book has a dual core processor ;)

    Very interesting. Would this help to make Counterstrike Source somewhat playable on a Macbook?

    I have absolutely no idea, Although it probably wouldn't do any harm to try it ;)

    The only option i played with was the one that does the hardware transform and lighting emulation, there are a lot of options in the program and most of them don't mean much to me :p

    I'm hesitant to try it out with CS:S because it takes so long to download :p but I will download it tonight and hope for the best

    This app is so old made back in 10.12.2004 this is the guy who made it.

    My question is if the call called intal graphics accelerator supports DX9 why would you need a product like this?

    On the intel page it says that Hw T&L is supported by software through highly optimized Processor Specific Geometry Pipeline (PSGP)

    more on it at http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma950/

    I do understand this video card is crap. But how bad is it really? The only thing I would want is better vista score so it would run better. I feel alot of this is due to drivers that are not done up well..
