For several years, I've had Pinball Arcade for Mac. The console versions of the game look awesome, as if you're standing in a darkened arcade playing a real pinball machine. The Mac versions on the other hand look like a cartoon, with no realistic lighting. There's also a glitch where the game repeatedly goes into slow motion at regular intervals. Farsight (the game's creator) claims it's a problem with the way Macs handle graphics. I also have Trainz, the railroad simulation. Again, other versions of the game look spectacular. The Mac version looks like a cartoon with lots of graphics glitches and poor framerate. The company has said that it's a problem with how Macs handle graphics. I'm using a new Mac Pro, so I've got decent hardware. Does anyone have thoughts on what's going on? Are the App companies simply blowing smoke about the graphics issues? I had thought that with Metal for Macs, we'd finally see games to rival console versions. The hardware is more than capable. It has to be a software issue. But where do you think the problem is -- with the OS or the App itself?
