    Hi.

    How do I tab out of a game? alt+tab in windows worked but command+tab in mac doesn't. Is there another way?

    works for me on my macbook with civ IV, tropico 2, and simcity 4.
    (how well those games actually work on my macbook is a completely different story...)

    Hmmm... that's weird. I have a macbook too. I've only tried it in Diablo 2 so far but it doesn't work.

    No go on either of those. I may have to hit up the diablo forums for this one.

    Try Apple+M, not the same as Alt+Tab in windows but it'll let you get back to Finder.

    When you run the game, leave a Finder window open, and try Apple+Tab again. I think it's not working because your game is the only open window.

    Civ IV is painful isn't it? How dies Civ III run under rosetta?

    ugh... i posted some info on this in the macbook forum, but to sum up, i had to turn pretty much everything off. really i might as well be playing risk on my kitchen table.

    i would guess III would be much better, just from my experience with both of them running on xp on a 17" laptop with serious dedicated graphics. while IV did actually tax the system a bit, III was like running text edit. :-p

    i want to try age of empires 2 for the same reason... will probably run ok. maybe i'll pick it up post-xmas.
