Will RCT3 work on XP via Bootcamp?
 
I am worried about the graphics card specified by Rollercoaster Tycoon (RCT) 3.

I owned a MacBook:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz
Ram: 2GB
Graphics: Intel GMA X3100

I am intending to get RCT3 on PC: XP (cause it is cheaper... ;D ) I am wondering if anyone know or had experienced whether it will work via Bootcamp. Please tell me your experience or thoughts. :Oops:

Millions of thank you! :D

Have not played it.

However, with the very minimal specs they're asking for, there should be no issue running it on your MacBook.

A 32 meg graphics card is a pretty low spec for a game

I reckon it should work

I think the game requires 64 meg graphics... do you think it will work on my MacBook?
