Hello, fellow Mac gamers. So, I know everything I need to know about OS X. I know why I bought my computer (advantages and disadvantages) and I also know what the HD3000 can/can't do in OS X, and that it is very different of what it can do under Windows. I just don't feel that Windows is worth the SSD space it requires. I learned everything about OS X before purchasing my Mac, and it has been my main machine since then. I don't think I will ever buy a non-Apple computer again. So, enter Steam... I installed Steam for the Orange pack, and I got a gazillion games. The HD3000 handle the games that I wanted well enough for me to have a lot of fun, and that was what really mattered. Since the beginning, I was realizing how much the steam client sucks, but since I really enjoy HL and want PC multiplayer compatibility, there's no other choice. It looks and works so bad on Yosemite. Looks like a Windows XP era app. Shouldn't valve lose time with it? So, enter TF2. What an amazing, addictive game. The only game I ever played that isn't single player. I also became really good at it, and for the last 2 years (since I finished the HL series. Where's 3, BTW?) it has been my default time waster. I have over 600h on it. How addicted to a game can someone be, right? I thought about dumping my GF and my Masters in Mechanical Engineering to train with swords, drink some run and practice with explosives on a near city, in order to become a better demoman, but Valve didn't let me do it. Why? Because the latest updates ruined OS X performance and took all the joy from the game. I tried to read some documentation and the obvious steam fora about the subject, but the knowledge level is low there, and it seems Valve doesn't give a f*** about them. Also, members always have a Windows centric POV. So, I would like to know if someone is on a similar situation, and what they think/do/want about it. First off, on OS X, textures are limited to medium, and the TF2 engine has a stupid bug on OS X where lower graphic details/textures means LESS performance. Higher settings are blocked by valve (try and put textures on high or very high, press ok, play a match and then take a look at the settings... Textures are on medium, no matter what you do). Then, sometimes the steam overlay does not respond (check activity monitor), and it takes another hit in performance. The gun metal update and latest steam updates really ****ed things up. Can someone help me? No matter what I do, I can't have a smooth framerate (30 fps). I never have less than 60Mbit/s during the day, and the ping during the game is never above 45 over wireless. Still, in most maps, it is very difficult to go over 25 fps. Lower resolution has almost 0 impact on framerate, but it makes the game look bad. Shadows are already on minimum, and so on. Settings are always at recommend or below that, but it feels that there's no difference in FPS anyway. So yeah, the game is full of bugs on the mac side of things. Anyone with the same hardware play it on Windows? How is it right now? Mac Users, what do you think about steam? Their games? TF2 on the Mac?
