    RTS gaming for MacBook?
    so i have a macbook with a low level graphics card (gma950) with 2.16 intel duo 2 with 1 gb ram and 160 gb HD.. are there any red alert games that would work with this? i have starcraft but dont really like it. i used to play red alert 2 on my old windows constantly and i love it. will c&c generals work with my lil macbook? ...thanks...
    bestbuy has this listed for system req's for tiberian wars for mac:
    Mac Video
    128MB ATI RADEON X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT or higher video card

    so this means tiberian wars will not work for my macbook right?
    any other ideas for rts that have great multiplayers.. i like modern combat so starcraft is not my fav. i guess i should try civ?

    Give Rise of Nations a try if the specs match.

    Any of the Warcrafts should run, although if you don't like Starcraft you may not like them either. You can always take a look at Apple's list and then check the specs on the games:

    system requirements for rise of nations:

    * Mac OS X version 10.2.8
    * 600MHz PowerPC G3 processor or higher
    * 256MB of RAM (512MB recommended for online play)
    * 32MB video card
    * 1GB hard disk space
    * 1024x768 monitor resolution or higher
    so looks like rise of nations will work. maybe i will try and find a demo for it. i have always kind of liked AOE so this might work. and actually Stronghold looks really tight too. i just wish red alert/command and conquer would work..
