What type of hard drive are you running Halo from?


Stock, 80GB/4,200rpm internal drive. Runs great. Runs ever better when the ATI card is overclocked slightly and no other apps are open.


I play Halo at 800x600. IMHO it plays fine. Not great, but fine.

This is with my mini OC'ed to 1.5ghz, an internal 7200 RPM hitachi drive and overclocking the video card. I won't overclock the settings on my card more that 9% for each setting. No way I'm going to take a chance at killing my favorite computer.


I'm going to really think long and hard as to whether I want to commit $15 a month for the next few months to World of Warcraft. I'm patiently awaiting the release of Lord of the Rings Online for Windows, but I might need something to hold me over until the later portion of the year.

What games can be played on the base 1.25 Mhz Mac Mini (256 MB or 1 GB RAM upgrade)?

We all know Doom 3 is out of the question, but what about Medal of Honor or Call of Duty or ... ?

Doom3 is not out of the question!

I'm running these games on my Core Solo Mini:
AvP Demo (not UB) - Highest graphic quality, runs fast.
Call of Duty (not UB) - lowest graphic quality, runs ok (10 - 40 Fps).
NoLimits demo (not UB) - Highest graphic quality, runs fast (20 - 60 Fps).
CIV3 (not UB) - Runs fast, scrolling a bit jumpy.
Minions of Mirth FREE (not UB) - lowest graphic quality, runs good except when in towns, will only run in window mode for some reason.
Venture Africa demo (not UB) - lowest graphic quality, ran well until there were lots more animals, will only run in window mode for some reason.
Think Tanks demo (not UB) - Highest graphic quality, runs fast.

PostPosted: Fri May 12, 2006 10:14 am    Post subject: Halo Reply with quote

I'm running Halo (on Windows XP via Boot Camp) at full settings apart from specular (which is off) and the resolution at 1024x768. Extremely smooth - as in, I had to set it to the 30fps option because it ran too fast. The moment I put specular on it runs like a dog.

This is on a Mac Mini Core Duo with 512MB of RAM.

The Intel graphics card can't do particles too well it seems..

I read on InsideMacGames forums that it runs well on Macbooks (probably on lowish settings) which have the same GMA950 graphics processing unit which is the main limiting factor for games with the Mac Minis and Macbooks.

I should add some more games to this list as well:

Legion Arena (UB) - High settings - runs great
Redline (UB) - High - runs great
Ghost Recon (not UB) - High - runs great
SecondLife (UB) - low - playable
Quake 4 Demo (UB) - Low - playable indoors, not playable outdoors
Call of Duty 2 demo (UB) - low - not playable
Minions of Mirth (UB) - can't remember settings - runs great


Going to try the Imperial Glory demo which was supposed to be released last week lol.

My mini: Core Solo 1.5GHz, 512MB of RAM, GMA950 GPU with 64MB of V-RAM.

I just play WOW it runs pretty good, only lags a bit in video performance near the bank or auction and entrances to citys.
