I have been toying with buying COD4 for my Mac. I have yet to figure out if I should get the Mac or Windows version. I thought I read somewhere that people were having issues running it in Snow Leopard. I am not sure if it was on this forum or another. I have tried searching, and I can't seem to find the thread I was looking at. Could someone shed some light on this issue? Either give me a link to a discussion or let me know if you are running it in snow leopard and whether or not you are having issues.

I am running a late 2008 MBP 2.4 Ghz 4GB ram 250GB HDD and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB video card.

I have not played it much to see any problems since my upgrade to Snow Leopard--- but I found this list that says it is working without any notations for work arounds required.

Snow Leopard Compatibility: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Compatibility List

Hope it helps

Well if that's the case...and a possible "show stopper"...then why did you mention in your initial post that you're trying to decide between the Mac or Windows COD4?

It's really not just a simple decision between buying COD4 for Mac or Windows.

Your real decision is:

A. Buy COD4 for Mac and you're done.
B. Buy COD4 for Windows...AND buy a copy of Windows

This is a MUCH different decision than what you mentioned in your original post!

Because the main body of the thread was the concern with the issues associated with COD4 and snow leopard, with a side not of possibly buying it for windows. I never said I had to buy Windows I just need to get a copy. There have been posts after that to shed some light on the issue, so I think I am going to get it for mac. Between this forum and another people seem to think it will run just fine.

Would have been rather frustrating buying a $50 game only to find out it had issues with the new OS, and I could have gotten it for Windows.

My father has a few copies at his house. Besides what does it matter to you how I obtain a copy. Now that being said I would rather not put Windows on my computer for one program, but if there are known issues, like I stated I have seen, then I will get my legal copy of windows and go from there.

Please don't jack my thread just to prove a point. If you aren't going to answer my question then don't post in the thread.

Look, we're just joking a bit, but if you feel that way... go fish.
Good luck running COD4 on a 9400M
