the title pretty much says it all...
i want to buy battlefront 2 for Windows and run it on my MacBook via Boot Camp. I am a little concerned that the GMA X3100 graphics card will not be able to handle the game. Has anyone been able to run it with this card?
thanks

The list below are the Video chipsets which are supported for the beta. More than likely the same holds true for the release version. You will also need to install DirectX 9C.

I'm almost certain the new MacBook with its faster more robust nVidia GeoForce would be fine, however, the Intel GMA X3100 may not cut it. Give it a shot and let us know.

ATI Radeon 8500/9000/9200 family, ATI Radeon 9500/9600/9700/9800 family, ATI Radeon X300/X600/X700/X800/X850 family, NVIDIA GeForce3 family, NVIDIA GeForce4 family excluding the GeForce4 MX, NVIDIA GeForce FX family, NVIDIA GeForce 6 family, and NVIDIA GeForce 7 family

Regards.

It's a Microsoft graphics rendering program which must be installed in order to display certain graphic attributes like 3 D.

Read here and download:

Download DirectX 9.0c (full package) - the latest version of Direct X

Hope it works for you.
