Shouldn't I be getting pretty damn good performance out of Unreal Tournament with a Radeon 7500?
In Mac OS 9, sure.
If you're talking about the Mac OS X preview code, it varies a lot from machine to machine.
If you're talking about UT2003, not likely. It runs better on nVidia hardware than ATI.
The OSX UT is simply horrible!
I'm talking about the OS X "port" at most I'll get a steady 40fps. Seems like it should be alot better than that.
NVIDIA better, eh?
It's a preview. Not even beta.
What do you expect?
I was expecting to be able to play a 3-year old game on a brand new computer with exceedingly good results.
Try running Quake 3 if you want screaming performance. UTs engine is not OSX friendly. UT2003 will probably have much better performance.
Oh jeez. NOW you tell me. AFTER I spend 3 weeks looking for the game and buying.
Well, you can't.
As I said before, it's a preview of a discontinued project (pre-beta).
Under OS 9 it's running fine. But I suppose your Mac doesn't boot OS 9?! (which model is it anyway?)
The new UT OSX port will be build from the scratch. But since Ryan Gordon is pretty busy at the moment, you shouldn't expect its release anytime soon.
Besides, UT is older than 3 years.
I've just always like UT better of Q3 anyways. Oh well, if I happen to come across Q3 somewhere for a decent price I'll pick it up.
