Apple :: Possible To Network Game Between Vista 64 And Leopard

Mar 6, 2009

If I'm running a copy of say Warcraft III or Age of Empires on my Vista 64 desktop, and have a Powerbook G4 running Leopard 10.5.5 on the same network with another legit copy of the game on it, can the games "see" each other on the network and allow network play, even though its two different OS's?

Or is it a strictly Windows to Windows or Apple to Apple setup in order to game in this way?

- The Exclusions lists also Applies to Migration assistant.

Apple :: Can I Game On A Macbook Pro

Sep 2, 2009

I'm torn between buying the Asus G51VX-RX05 and the Macbook Pro (the 13-inch: 2.26GHz and I'll upgrade the memory to 4gig). I'm a fan of the portability of the Mac and its long battery life. I'm also annoyed with blue screens, error messages, and other frustrations of using Windows. However, I want to be able to play games on my laptop and I don't know if the Macbook Pro will be good enough for me.

The games I like are not current. They include Quake 3 Arena/Quake Live, Diablo 2, Soldiers of Fortune 2, and I heard Unreal Tournament 2004 is awesome, so maybe that too. I'm a big fan of first person shooters and I want to be able to play those games without it being slow. Having said that, can I have an enjoyable gaming experience playing these titles on a Mac (I don't plan on using bootcamp)?

Apple :: Game Availability In OS X

Mar 4, 2010

I know the Mac platform isn't purchased for it's prevelent skills in the gaming world, however I know there are still some decent games kicking around that work. Essentially, I absolutely cannot adjust to a windows environment and need the protection and stability of my precious OS X so I'll be getting a MBP soon (havent decided if I want to hold out for a refresh or not.)

with that said, I'm curious as to what -IS- available for gaming?

I know Blizzard has some titles that work. WoW for example
-Warcraft III
-Starcrafc II

does Diablo 2 work fine? I know it's older so would there be any compatibility?
Any RPG's or fun sim/strag/rts type games? Diablo 3 wont be out anytime before I die so I'm not holding my breath.

I recently found some really powerful stock/forex trading workstation software for OS X so that was essentially the last straw for me. Not that it's any importance to this thread at all, but I'm excited and felt the need to share.

Apple :: Game Demo's For Mac

Mar 18, 2009

it is pretty easy to find demo's for just about any game available for PC but the select games available for Mac I can't seem to find demo's of. One I am talking about specifically is Call of Duty 4. I would just go ahead and buy it for the PC and run it in boot camp like I do all my other games but I am curious to see how games run inside OS X. Anyone know where I can find some game demos for OS X?

Apple :: Should I Upgrade From OS X 10.4.11 To 10.5.x Leopard

Jun 10, 2009

I picked up an old iBook G4, specs are:
1.33Ghz PowerPC G4
ATI 32MB VRAM AGP Video Card (integrated I believe)

Seems to be loaded with all the goodies: Bluetooth, Firewire, USB, WiFi.

Not sure if it would be worth it to upgrade to 10.5 though, seems like it would only slow me down but with Unix/Macs I'm not so sure. Plus, it appears that 10.5.x is the last OS Update for the PowerPC crowd.

Apple :: MKV Playback On Leopard

Feb 24, 2009

Why doesn't OS X have a single good video player like KMplayer that can handle Matroska (mkv) files.. Or for that matter handle Subtitles elegantly ...

Or maybe there is something but I am just not aware of its existence

Please don't say it's VLC (even 720p playback stutters on a Unibody macbook) Perian is somewhat better but then Subtitle support is very flaky

Apple :: How To Upgrade 10.3.9 To Leopard

Mar 27, 2009

I'm upgrading a Mac from 10.3.9 to Leopard. I've got an image of the disc... how do I go about upgrading.

The Mac in question is a desktop (please don't shut down the thread mods! ) 1.6ghz, power-pc g5, 1.25gb. I've checked the specifications for Leopard and its seems to meet them. [url]

Someone else tried unsuccessfully to upgrade Leopard on the same machine before without much luck.... hoping it might be better this time.

Apple :: 4GB Upgrade & Snow Leopard

Sep 11, 2009

this is my first foray into 4GB in OS X. Just to appease my TypeA twists, could someone please comment for me?

Upgraded my uMB to 4GB last night and System Memory in OS X Activity Monitor (Utilities folder) shows 3.75GB available. I'm not freaked out about this, just wanting to check my curiosity.

Now the About This Mac pop-up window shows 4GB installed so I'm thinking the difference may have to do with OS memory addresses and such which is why you end up with memory recognition in 32bit windows systems, but I'm hoping for confirmation from others that I'm not missing something. The other possibility I considered for the difference is just simply the 1024bit vs 1000bit thing that you end up with in HDD sizing (and that would actually match nicely with the conversion @ ~3.73GB ).

Apple :: Snow Leopard Upgrade

Aug 31, 2009

My upgrade to Snow leopard from Leopard went without incident, and everything works great except for Quicktime.

If I want to watch a WMV file, I get an error message indicating that Quicktime must be installed first to proceed.

The question is this. Can I install Quicktime alone from the Upgrade disk?

I tried the newest version downloaded from Apple's website, however it gives an error upon installation that indicates that the version is incompatible with Snow Leopard. I guess Apple has not updated their download website.

Apple :: Powerbook G4 And Leopard Upgrade

May 31, 2010

I just got a free Powerbook G4 17inch from a relative and I was wondering if I should upgrade it to Leopard or if I should keep it on Tiger. It has a 1.67Ghz processor, 2GB of ram and an ATI 9700 128mb. Will I notice any significant improvement in performance or will it slow this machine down more? I was inevitably planning to sell it but if I can run Leopard decently I'd most likely keep it. Though being unable to play HD youtube videos without stuttering is kinda annyoing.

What are the best tools to unzip and unrar in OSX Leopard?

I've heard good things about unrarx for unraring. Is there a better alternative?

If i'm honest i'm looking for something like winrar for mac osx. You know, a great GUI application that will handle pretty much every format. Winrar for OSX is just command line only however

Apple :: Leopard Performance Tweaks

May 6, 2009

Being digging around with my macbook this evening, figuring out ways to spruce up hardware performances, in the form of buying/installing latest and greatest hardwares (hard drive, optical drive, "expensive" ram etc ...) and it dawned on me about tweaking it, just like with Windows.

Yahoo-ing/Google-ing brought me to this blog, from which I played with some suggestions. A nice surprise, not that I had any complaints with OS X performance.

There are a few suggestions here that I had not yet tried, may be later.

--------- Quote:
Finder Tweaks:

The first batch of speed boosts come from minimizing the Finderís system load.

1. Turn off Spotlight.

This will save an older system with a slower hard drive the pain of indexing. Even after the first index, Spotlight needs to continue updating its indexes. It also uses resources to cache searches and be ready for use...................

Apple :: Original Leopard Trash Can Icon

My problem is after using Candybar, I somehow got rid of the original trash can icon, and it was replaced with something else. I like the original wire mesh one. Is there anywhere I can download the original one? Or if someone can email me their trashempty.png and trashfull.png files. I'm new to OS X.

Apple :: Snow Leopard - Opening Files In SL

Sep 26, 2009

Double-clicking files in the Finder under Snow Leopard launches applications associated with the types of the files regardless of which applications used to create those files. I like it but I can see why those users who have been using Mac for 2 decades hate it. Other than that it forces one to adopt a new habit, I think it makes sense both conceptually and practically to ignore creator codes for most users.

Apple :: Game Benchmarks For New Macbook Pros

May 1, 2010

I have yet to purchase a new 15" Macbook Pro of my own, although I am interested in the FPS that these new laptops can produce. I am an occasional gamer and realize that these new GPU's are about middle class and may be able to play a few of the newer games at mid-high settings although they have 512MB. Any FPS benchmarks out there with specs of their laptops? I had a i7 2.66ghz, high res screen 1680 by 1050 , 4gb RAM in mind.
