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... ) I am wondering if anyone know or had experienced whether it will work via Bootcamp. Please tell me your experience or thoughts.

Millions of thank you!

Have not played it.

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

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

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?
