    Has anyone played Team Fortress 2 on Steam for Mac? I just installed it today on my MBP (config is in my siggy), but I'm pretty disappointed because it's obviously not as smooth and fast as in my Bootcamp.

    I turned most of my settings to at least Med (and some to Low), turned off Antialiasing, but kept resolution of 1440x900, yet it's still laggy/choppy esp. when there's more people involved... (it was fine in Bootcamp on even better settings).

    I get like 20-25 fps in OS X, which pretty much sucks.... Anyone else experiencing this?

    It's normal. I don't have any personal experience with TF2 but what I've heard, games run much better under Windows because that's their #1 developing platform and drivers are also better.

    This is what happens when games are written for DirectX and then ported to use OpenGL after the fact. Nothing you can do about it.
