View Full Version : Old School GR1 Veteran On Mac! I have an Important Question...
04-22-2007, 06:28 PM
I'm sure I'm not the first to ask this, but I went and bought a PC @ $600.00 just to rock GRAW 1! Here are the specs... Compaq AMD Athlon 3800 2.25 GHz, 1 gb of ram, Nvidia GeForce 6300 etc,etc. The machine ran like ****!!! I took the thing back in two days. I still love GR. I love what has been done with the PC version from what I've experienced so far, But I have to ask really hard... Was it a $$$ issue? Are there not enough GR fans on Macs for a port or something? Will there ever be a Macintosh version of GRAW? Please someone, kill me fast.

Which Mac do you have? I assume it's not an Intel CPU Mac. Is yours a G3/G4/G5?
With the switch to Intel CPUs, Apple has pretty much killed any future business for companies like Aspyre for porting games. People can just use Bootcamp to boot into Windows XP to play Windows games on their Intel based Macs (most aren't very good for that, though, because of Apple's video card choices).
I'd say that if you can't find a game for your Mac now, you won't be able to find it in the future either. Still, you could check Asyre's web site (or MacSoft) to see if they have any game ports in the works.

If you have any intentions of gaming with your computer, a mac is not for you.
And yes, with a cheap 600 rig, graw will run like ****. You need at least a 7 thousand series graphic card to run the game.
