Thanks for the additional information on Doom 3. I suspected you'd need to do something like that. I'll move it to the "Working" list.

Excellent! Must have been some sort of driver issue then. I'm going to upgrade to 10.4.8 *sometime* here. Took me forever to go from 10.4.3 to 10.4.6. How much better is 10.4.8 for general use other than the usual "security, stability and Rosetta" improvements?

Depends like is said in another topic. The speed upgrade from 1047 with 1048 kernel to a real 1048 setup gave me a speed increase of 40% (cpu and total score) to 100% (opengl) in xbench.
So i gues coming from 1043+addons to a real 1048 is even bigger.

Everything is more compatible with a full 1048. specily if you have only a sse2 cpu and not a real sse3.

I see people upgrading with only kernels and some kext, frameworks.
Personly i say wipe you osx partition and install 1048 full. Took me 20 minutes and 10 minutes for installing/putting important programs back.
But ok i am lucky most thinks work out of the box here. Only the 6600gt take some work but after so many test installs i do in 5 minutes and blind :D (titan)
The later availble ppf for the jas dvd has titan now instead of natit (becuase of some problems people had with natit) so i could be that even the 6600gt would work right the first time :D

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been sick for the past week so I haven't been doing much gaming or testing.

Take care!!

btw i yesteray i tried quake 1 it worked, but man, if you see now how simple that really was compared to new games. i walk throught levels so easy now :pirate2:

However the glquake looks very nice even today. (also quake2 btw). Somehow i like the light effect better then then today, dont ask me why.
I even tried that teagrada quake or how it is called wih real lighting, shadows,adn per pixel mapping. It may be realistic but god what is that ugly and dark. Stay away from it.

I don't own a copy of Prey, but I do know it's based on the Doom 3 engine so it's method would be very similar to Doom 3 and Quake 4.

I'll add that one to the list.
----------------------------------
Big breakthrough for Oni, however it's bad news.
As noted here, the PC and Mac versions use different formatting for the content. Therefore, the PC data files are incompatible with the Mac data files. Too bad. Now I'll need to find a Mac version somewhere because I really want to play that game again! :)

I added all the .pk3 files to Prey's 'base' folder and it had no effect. I don't know what else to try as there is no patch yet.

EDIT: Oni isn't to hard to find on the internet (I had lost my original copy so I could download it with a clear conscience). I've also heard that you can buy a copy fairly cheap on eBay.

is it just me or does COD 2 look worse, run slower and lack EAX when played on OS X?

There won't be any EAX, probably OpenAL instead. I'm not sure if it looks better or worse- does CoD2 use DirectX or OpenGL on Windows? If it's DX9 on Windows then yes, there will be a visual quality difference between versions as the engine will be using a slightly older API. As for performance, there's a known issue that causes the game to run in Rosetta in Singleplayer.

so far everything mentioned in this article worked. I've tried COD2 and quake 2 so far. I'm trying to get quake 4 and doom 3 to work. I found the 1.3 Doom 3 crack but I can't find the 1.3 Quake 4 patch. I could only find a Quake 4 1.3 patch. Anyone know where I can look? I don't really want to have to deal with CDs or images.
