    Guitar Hero III on MacBook?
    If I would want to run Guitar Hero III on a new 2,2 Santa Rosa MacBook with a little help from Rosetta, would it be any good?
    These are the requirements;
    # Operating System: 10.4.10 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard)
    # CPU Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
    # CPU Speed: 2 GHz
    # Memory: 1 GB RAM
    # Hard Disk Space: 5.1 GB + 1 GB Swap File
    # Video Card (ATI): Radeon X1600
    # Video Card (NVidia): Geforce 7300
    # Video Memory (VRam): 128 MB
    I would really like to play this game. The site says Intel chips are not supported, but I read Rosetta can translate it to use an Intel chip, with some performance loss. I wonder if the performance loss will be too large to be able to play the game any more, or that if I have no problem with low video quality, I will be able to play it anyway.
    Anyone?

    Specs:
    15in i7 MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM, 120GB SSD, 500GB HD
    Umm, Rosetta is not going to help you play GH3. Rosetta is so you can use older PPC programs on intel chips. Since GH3 is a new game is would be stupid for the programers to make it not Intel compatable.

    And reading the specs from the developers, it states that it will work on the intel cpus. http://www.aspyr.com/product/game_specs/85

    also, the other killer on this is that it will not run on integrated intel video cards. that sucks. that really really sucks.
