Playing games on a macbook pro?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a game called stubbs the zombie, but when i started playing the game was really slow. I minimized the resolution but it still was to slow. I just wanted to know what i could do to be able to run the game normally?
I have a Macbook Pro 1.83 with one gig and 128 video card

Thanks

It's probably not universal.

To clarify the above, If the app (or in this case game) is not universal, the OS uses something called Rossetta to "translate" (hence the name) to be used on the macbook.

When/If they come out with a universal version, that would work at normal speed.

Here's a guide with Universal Binary Games. I don't think its complete, but it will give some info as to what games are universal and which run OK under Rosetta.
