I picked up a copy of the Mac edition of Battlefield 1942 during the week, and I've had a little bit of time to get some very raw and incomplete performance figures (although I figure something is better than nothing). I won't say anything about the game itself, since as far as I can tell it is a 100% faithful port of the PC version. If you want a gameplay review, there were many good reviews written of the PC game when it was first released. My system is a 1.6GHz G5, with a 64MB Radeon 9600 Pro, and 1.25GB RAM. I also have a Rev C 12" PowerBook and I'll be testing that system soon, but this limited set of data is for the G5 only. OK...as far as I can tell there isn't a benchmarking script for BF1942, so I've had to rely on the unscientific method of getting the FPS counter up on screen and watching how that behaves out of the corner of my eye while I play the game. You can get the FPS counter and onscreen graph to display by hitting '`' to bring up the console, then typing 'fps 1' (both without the quotes). Settings for all benchmarks were sound quality at 22KHz and all other sound settings as per defaults, single-player map 'Battleaxe', with AI set to 'Hard'. Video quality settings were all set to 'High'...basically all video quality settings were maxed out I only varied resolution. - For 1600x1200x32, FPS seemed to vary from around 8 FPS up to around 20 FPS, with the average looking to be around 14 FPS. - For 1280x1024x32, much the same story. - And finally, for 1024x768x32...almost the same story. Well that was fun Looks like the game, at the settings I used at least, is CPU limited. Even when cutting the resolution fromn 1600x1200 down to 1024x768, there didn't seem to be a great speedup...average FPS (as determined by my highly scientific eyeballs) seemed to stay around the 14 to 16 FPS range, no matter what the resolution setting. Anyway, as I mentioned, these are obviously very incomplete, very unscientific tests, but I thought I'd give people an idea how the game plays on the bottom-rung of the G5 family at least. More benchmarks to come, and I'll try out the 12" PowerBook too. If anyone knows of an automated benchmarking method for BF1942 I'd like to try that out also...simply monitoring the FPS counter by eye isn't a really great way to benchmark.
