    I recently received my first apple computer but i am having problems with warcraft 3. When i start the game it run perfectly as to be expected but within about 45 minutes it get all choppy, about 2 frames per second or so. When i restart the computer and try to pick up where i left off in the game it continues to be choppy. All i have done is installed it and the frozen throne and installed all the updates off battle net. Not sure what i am doing wrong or if there are any setting i have to tweak. Thanks for your help. By the way it is a MBP 2.2 brand new this year.

    Use bootcamp to install XP. Install the game and see if the issue still occurs.

    Personally, I think this is very excessive to just test an issue with Warcraft. I think the issue may just come down to that particular level/map. Skip the level if you're playing campaign with cheat codes, and see if the rest of the levels give you the same behavior.

    Connect to Battle.net to download the host of updates/patches that have been released over the years, including several crucial patches for Mac-specific issues.
    If your problem persists after doing so, there may be something wrong with your system itself, not necessarily the game.
