Many times, Mac users catch the blunt of jokes because to be honest the gaming industry is still behind for us mac users. However, us mac users know exactly why we love our macs. Recently, I have been going to LAN parties, and I was utterly surprised to find that Wolfenstein Enemy Territory has a mac client. I immediately went and got it. This thread will be for the games unheard in Mac Games, and the recommendations for the specifications.

For a LEGAL copy of Enemy territory, go to www.splashdamage.com then go to downloads and select Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. There will be a mac client download. My recommendations is a minimum of teh Following
1.33 Ghz Power PC G4
500 MB ram
1 GB of harddrive space
ATI Mobility Radeon 9550

well for BF 1942, it would be possible to run it on a G4 processor, as long as you change the settings to improve the FPS. I had to change the resolution for Enemy Territory. Having Windows friends, they tell me that BF 1942 is less graphic intense than ET.

what? How is it possible to not run bf 1942 on a 1.33 GHz? I can effectively run it on my 1.33 GHz. what OS system are you running? and exactly do you mean that you cannot run it?

I could run it on my 1Ghz G4 iBook - albeit sluggishly.
I prefer Call of Duty - runs a lot smoother...

My 1.67 Ghz Powerbook with 1GB ram and Tiger also runs 1942 about half the fps as an equivalent PC that I own.
