    Hi,
    I was wondering if The Walking Dead would run with these specs...

    Code:
    2010 MacBook Pro
    2.4GHz Core i5
    4GB Ram
    Nvidia 330m 256MB VRam
    I meet all the requirements except the video memory, which is 512. So will it still be playable?


    Also what exactly happens when the video card runs out of memory?

    The game usually just won't run.

    I would guess Walking Dead would be playable, but maybe not very fun. Probably pretty slow. You might see better results in Boot Camp.

    I'm playing the Walking Dead on my 2010 11" MacBook Air with the integrated Nvidia 320M (256MB shared RAM) and it works just fine in OSX. Every now and then it stutters a bit when the game first starts, but once it gets going it's very smooth. It's a great game and a lot of fun, even on my Air, so you should be just fine with the 330M.

    I have no idea why Telltale made 512 MB of RAM a requirement. It'll run perfectly with those specs--I can run it pretty well on high with my 320M.

    BTW, what do you all think of Walking Dead? I'm wondering if I would enjoy it.

    Wonder no more. I think you would, indeed, enjoy it. Prove me wrong. :)

    *my only experience is with the console version

    I run the game on my MacBook Air late 2011: 1,8 GHz Intel Core i7, 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, Intel HD3000 Graphic-card. I disabled the effects and only set texture quality on high. Runs very good without stuttering, lags or other slowdowns. Also the fans don't need so much air or don't get very loud.

    I can't for the life of me get this game to work properly on Mac OS X or Windows under Boot Camp. I'm on a 2010 13" MBA with NVidia 320M and 4GB RAM. On Windows, the computer freezes after 5-10mins of play and on Mac OS X, I get lots of missing textures and shading problems. Trying to get a refund through Steam. :(

    Does it have the same requirements as "back to the future"?
    If so it should work, I played that on macbook 2010.

    Updates. The Windows problems were to do with me running Windows 8 Release Preview. Put Windows 7 back on and it runs fine, but I'm at a loss as to why the Mac version isn't working.
