    I've been playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for a while. After playing for hours and you build the park up very big the game begins slowing down and the screen refresh rate decreases.

    Is there a way to give more power to the game so it doesn't begin to run slower?

    Thanks.

    The only way to do that is to get a new mac with a better graphics card, or buy a PC that has a proper graphics card.

    I have the 13 inch Aluminium Macbook.

    Can I not use some hard drive space to use to boost speed or something?

    No, that's a way to slow it down. Hard drives are usually the slowest point in a system.

    So is there any way at all. I have all programmes closed, what about increasing power to the Processor?

    Your processors more than powerful enough, you've got a bottleneck in the gfx card.
