snood is just a ripoff of puzzle bobble. play the original instead. Very Happy

snood also has the dubious honor of being one of the first programs to install gator spyware on your PC. Evil or Very Mad

Twisted Evil Among other nasty things. The copy I loaded on my previous PC installed a dialer that used my Fax-modem to call a 1-900 line for 20 minutes -- $100 Call!

Needless to say -- I don't download anything in binary form any more.

But, I'll add Unreal Tournament 2004 to the list as it is 100% playable (at lower graphics settings). Good for a brief distraction from learning Xcode, Cocoa, and Objective-C!

How far a long in the process are you? (and what was your previous programming experience?)

I recently ordered "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X" and "Programming in Objective-C" and am very excited about getting started coding with XCode.

Embarassed I'm just getting started on Mac. I've written the "Hello World" program. I'm currently working on the "Currency Converter" tutorial. A great deal of my programming experience is in C, over 20 years of writing code, last 15 or so in C. Linux kernel and utilities compose most of the programs and now I participate in the development of a UNIX based BBS http://mbse.sourceforge.net.

Dang it! You're ahead of me! I'm still reading the online material. Guess I better layoff the UT2004 for a while.

I thought about buying UT2004. I had UT2003 for the nasty which I played for quite a while (and can now play on my Gentoo box!). I don't suppose UT2004 for the Mac is compatible for online play with the PC version?

On a daily basis I kick some PC users tail... indeed you can play any UT2004 client -- architecture makes no difference. It is a "twitch" game -- the video in the Mini at 800x600 is just able to get about 40fps. I've got EVERYTHING on low. But it's the temporary distraction of running around squishing pedestrians with the Hellbender that makes it interesting! Laughing
I can hear the sounds now ... Crunch! -- Announcer says: "Road Rage!" -- "Triple Kill" -- "Unstoppable!" Twisted Evil

Here is what I have tried on my Mini. I got a 1.4 w/1GB and a External WD 150GB Drive.
Quake = Of course runs great
Quake2 = Same as above
Quake3 = Runs Great
Unreal Tournament = Runs Great
Return to Castle Wolfenstein = a Little choppy. had to turn it way down
Halo = Same as Wolfenstein but its very playable

I have all of these installed on my external HD and they all seem to be playing pretty good. To be honest, I haven't played them much (no time) but when I get a chance to waste a few, they seem to be working pretty good for me
Very Happy

Blizzard rocks! Diablo II and World of Warcraft are great games.

Unfortunately, my Diablo II is before the dual Mac/PC CDs. Thankfully my expansion pack is for both Macs and PCs, it's quite useful...

Also, anyone else think this should be a sticky?

I tried these games on a mini 1.42Ghz w/ 1Gb Ram

Medal Of Honor: Works great
KOTOR: Works great, sometimes a little slow specially on combats
SIMS2: a little slow, but playable... altough is a little boring..
Sim City 4: wonderful game! I love it and runs very smooth

Anyway... no computer is better to play games than the evil triunvirate: PS2-XBOX-GAMECUBE Very Happy

Agreed. I moved from playing games on my home computer to the PS2 sometime ago. And it keeps the kids off my computer when they want to play games.

Actually, they're playing LEGO Star Wars on the PS2 right now. Think I'll go join them...
