    What are the system requirements?

    Oh, and, aholden12592, not to sound patronizing, but instead of always asking us if something will run, check the system requirements and if it requires a graphics card (NOT integrated) then it'll either run slowly or not at all on a MacBook. Does wonders for our time and yours, too. :)

    I wondered about Med2 on MBP as well...have an earlier post about it. Although I've checked the specs, I'm still not sure. Is the MBP vid card DirectX 9.0c compatible? (think so but cant see for sure?)

    it also says you need a directx sound card...cant find any information about hte sound card at all. i assume the sound card will be at the same level as the graphics, but...

    any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    And OP: I'm pretty sure it won't run on the macbook :( sorry dude. Its possible that it will run a bit, but I think the macbook will struggle, cos med2 seems to be fairly graphics intensive

    Both the MacBook and MacBook Pro are DX9c compatible.

    and aholden, I've checked too, and they haven't been released yet, so your question is unanswerable, almost, without knowing the engine Med2 is based off of.

    Rome was and is still a beast in terms of resources as it pushes my 2footer with 256vram and 2gb ram
