    hey guys
    i downloaded nba2k11 for mac
    and i have a really good new macbookpro core i7 2.66
    the thing is it looks really good but works real slow..
    can it be that its for windows and steel works on my mac or what can be the problem?

    p.s.
    it was a zip and when i unzipped it there was one file. no installation just one file that runs the game

    Where have you downloaded it from?
    Why not play the Windows version via Boot Camp?

    If you're running it in OS X, then you have the mac version, as the Windows program wouldn't excecute in OS X.

    Beyond that, it's my personal belief that if you are pirating games, you can't complain about performance.

    Go to a store, buy the game + Windows (if you haven't already), then install Windows via Boot Camp Assistant (there is a guide somewhere on this world wild wet, maybe you can find it somehow), then install the game and play it.

    And here is the problem, as TPB is not an official source, who knows what ***** you downloaded.
    Btw:


    I don't know, as I don't game, but here is a link to some very strange thread about frames per second games: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1130042

    If you cared to read the FAQing & Rules, you would know, that we will not help you here with warez, but you could go to an electronics store with a gaming section for that..
    And if you can't find a proper version yourself via other means, maybe it means you shouldn't be doing it anyway, maybe you install some other ***** with it.

    As for other games, ah, I can't be bothered anymore. I am not your search slave.

    Ok then, you can probably get a good copy in whatever the popular game store is in your corner of the globe.

    In general, if you are downloading programs from anywhere other than an authorized source (and pirate bay in this case certainly is not an authorized source), you run the risk of downloading something that might not be what it is advertised.

    So could you have downloaded something that could have hurt your computer? Potentially.

    So what, does your country not have some kind of store for games (some countries don't) or can't you use online stores or eBay?

    If you want to play Windows games without much fiddling, there is no way around it, unless you invest into game consoles.

    Yup, you could install a trojan or some other malware, from such "un-reputable" sources.

    There are currently no viruses for Mac OS X in public circulation, only a handful of trojans and other malware, which have to be installed manually via entering the administrator password.
    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    Because there are faqing official sources to download games from, for instance Steam. But as I don't know many games or their distributors, I just asked to get more information.
    Anyway, as you don't really do much to get help, you wouldn't care to take a look at the following links to learn more about, ah *****, I don't ****ing care.

    Shi*t*e is censored now? Scheiße.

    Seeing that you have given us absolutely no clue about where you are located (except outside the US), it's really tough to say. If you have a games/electronics store in your area, that would be a place to start.

    You could also try here: http://2ksports.com/games/nba2k11/ It's the US website, but you might be able to get it to take you to your home region.
