  1. Hey. I was working on a hackintosh for last half year and I was so glad that I've decided to buy a new MacBook Pro. Well. I've decided to migrate my user account from Hackintosh, I just had too much data. Everything was OK, but I had one small problem - MBP was hanging on every sleep (monitor off, sleep LED was non-stop bright, like on sleeped display, hard drive was still spinning). I've thought it might be some rare Leo problem, so I've upgraded to Snow Leo. Nothing has changed. I've tried to uninstall programs, like iStats - people were saying it might be the problem. But in my case - nothing happend. So now best of all - I've tried to run Snow Leo in 64 bit and... Sleep is working like a charm. Well, it's almost perfect, but it isn't - sometimes I use Vmware to virualize my bootcamp partition or play cider games - vmware still doesn't run 64 bits, clear - but why cider games are crashing - I have no idea. So to make it clear: Do you have any idea why I have those problems with sleep on 32 bit mode? And are your cider games (like Heroes V, C&C 3) are working fine on 64 bits or it's rather normal for them to crash? my specs: uMBP late 2008, 2.4 GHZ / 2GB RAM / 250GB HDD / 9600GT Thanks for any help ---- EDIT: By the way, about all those pram resets and so on - I've tried this already

  3. Mac Keyboard Games

    Hey guys I spend a lot of time travelling with my mac, and I like to play my games then However, when I have mac on my knees using a mouse is rather impossible That's why I'm asking - What's are your favorite games that can be played mostly or entirely on keyboard? I personally like playing: Civilization II (in parallels window, can run on W98 with 16MB virtual RAM ) Civilization III FlatOut 2 Race Driver 3 GTA 2 (Cider port) Jazz Jackrabbit 2 I'm afraid that best games, like Age of Empires, Fallouts or Unreal Tournaments needs mouse instead of trackpad far too much...
  4. Found the problem. I had to cleanly reinstall retail OS X, then DO NOT install any GUI installations etc Then I had to apply pure kexts found here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=pl&cli...=Szukaj&lr= ...and apply Intel GMA950 EFI string to apple.boot.com.plist Done. Took me 15 hours to discover that
  5. As you see, it can be done with Nvidia 8800GT 512 with EFI string, monitor: HP w2207h
  6. Even if that's true, my PC hackintosh have no problems with setting 640x480 resolution on 22" LCD display (nV 8800 GT). And I've never seen that problem on any other both Macintoshes and Hackintoshes, the 640x480 games just run fine there (even games in 320x240 run fine, like Jazz Jackrabbit).
  7. This is my netbook: MSI Wind, 1.5 GB RAM, Intel GMA 950, Atom 1,6 GHz. Issue: Old games are not working (details below) That steps I've already done: I have reinstalled driver, nothing. Then I found that newest gma950 driver with mirroring may have some bugs, so I installed older version. Nothing. Today I have get rid of drivers and installed vanilla ones, with adding proper EFI string (I got full hardware rendering and quartz working), still nothing... All these games I'm talking about (Jazz Jackrabit 2, Fallouts, Diablo II, Airline Tycoon Deluxe, GTA 2 are running 640x480. Do you think it maybe a problem? For example when I've started Diablo II there are some configuration settings, you can test resolutions and so on. Well, 640x480 resolution wasn't working, but 800x600 was (both for thousands and millions of colors). Well, Diablo II is the only perfect game - when it see that I can't run 640x480 resolution, app is automatically setting native 1024x600 and e.g. play intro movies with black boxes around. Leopard itself can't set 640x480 as well (all I see is a black screen for 15 seconds) I don't want to suffer with crossover on this little machine, especially that these games on mac are really fast and battery lasts for quite long time... Much longer than running anything through crossover on this little CPU. It also better to have stretched 640x480 than a little box inside of already tiny 10" display. Why they were working fine before? I had format week ago, used the same installation method as before (usb msiwindosx86.iso) and same drivers... I am so upset that I totally forgot it's 2:30 AM already. So, well, maybe anyone of you use MSI Wind, got these games working well and could tell me what graphic drivers are you using? I would be very grateful for any help
  8. Battlefield 2 **Cider** On-line play?

    Thanks very much, I had never realised that the-most-unpopular BF got already his cider version... I will see if it will work with my original cd-key and how this **** punkbuster works.
  9. Battlefield 2 **Cider** On-line play?

    And what about Battlefield: Vietnam? I know everyone plays BF2 now, but my dream was always to run Battlefield Vietnam on Mac, even 5 years later SquityX, do you think doing it gonna be much different than BF2? Or is it worth to try? :>
  10. Thank you for answer. You helped me with cpu=0, I have no idea why I had cpu=1 (and what does this cpu=0/1 means, but whatever ) Now OSX starts significantly faster. I've lost lags on DosBOX! Untreal Tournament 2004 works much better now but I still got some lags from time to time. My xbench got up to 78 from 61, graphics up to 30% higher and user interface graphic higher by 100%! So thanks for the tip, kenkenc; and If you guys got any other tips how to make my gpu works little faster than ~100 in xbench (3250 megaflops in Power Fractal) let me know please Thanks again! You made my day
  11. Hey. I'm using my osx86 for some time already. Maybe even a half year. I've got a lot of problems, and I've leared how to solve much of them. But I have some feelings that my performance... sucks. I can run all applications pretty well, I have graphic acceleration in iTunes/iMovie but I've got feeling like I'm on machine just a bit faster than my old PPC 1,33. Of course I can use basic applications, but problems start when I try to run some games - even those old ones, like Unreal 2004 or Ford Racing 2 - usually I got a big slideshow then. Damn, even my DosBOX has a slideshow while I'm trying to run Aladdin or Settlers 2! So I'm gonna give you my specifications and xbench log and I hope you will look at it and give me some tips is it OK or not, and if no - what should I do? My specs: Gigabyte p31-ds3l, BIOS: version 9 (up to date) 2,6 GHz Core 2 Duo e4700 2x 1GB 800mhz DDR2 RAM nVidia 8800GT HP w2207h monitor Distro: Kalyway 10.5.2 (10.5.5 usualy but I just got fresh install) + nvinject driver My XBENCH log: Results 61.31 System Info Xbench Version 1.3 System Version 10.5.2 (9C7010) Physical RAM 2048 MB Model MacPro3,1 Drive Type ST3320620AS ST3320620AS CPU Test 54.33 GCD Loop 127.70 6.73 Mops/sec Floating Point Basic 37.36 887.73 Mflop/sec vecLib FFT 49.08 1.62 Gflop/sec Floating Point Library 53.63 9.34 Mops/sec Thread Test 54.09 Computation 36.81 745.78 Kops/sec, 4 threads Lock Contention 101.91 4.38 Mlocks/sec, 4 threads Memory Test 65.80 System 60.39 Allocate 73.24 268.96 Kalloc/sec Fill 61.07 2969.46 MB/sec Copy 50.89 1051.12 MB/sec Stream 72.28 Copy 68.30 1410.74 MB/sec Scale 67.01 1384.50 MB/sec Add 78.29 1667.77 MB/sec Triad 76.88 1644.68 MB/sec Quartz Graphics Test 82.43 Line 60.57 4.03 Klines/sec [50% alpha] Rectangle 89.54 26.73 Krects/sec [50% alpha] Circle 70.10 5.71 Kcircles/sec [50% alpha] Bezier 67.31 1.70 Kbeziers/sec [50% alpha] Text 259.33 16.22 Kchars/sec OpenGL Graphics Test 55.64 Spinning Squares 55.64 70.58 frames/sec User Interface Test 65.75 Elements 65.75 301.75 refresh/sec Disk Test 59.66 Sequential 94.43 Uncached Write 121.08 74.34 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 121.50 68.74 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 54.17 15.85 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 134.94 67.82 MB/sec [256K blocks] Random 43.60 Uncached Write 16.07 1.70 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 88.68 28.39 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 88.60 0.63 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 143.66 26.66 MB/sec [256K blocks] Again, thanks in advance for any info!
  12. Macbook or PC Laptop

    I knew you gonna love it Good luck and take care of your new baby
  13. Thank you for the tip, Tayklor. I will soon "undress" my iBook and it's the final time to play with some connectors, I still hope it may be some cable. Then I will really think about some homemade charger, as you said, because it's indeed the only way that the power is going through right now. Anyway thanks again for the tip.
  14. Hey I'm asking you guys because maybe you can help me - I've already don't know what to do... I've got the latest iBook G4 1,33 GHz 12". I've noticed a weird issue some time ago - when I was plugging the DC I could notice the orange light, but the battery wasn't charging. The iBook was still working, but of course battery life was limited. First I thought it's the charger, so I went to the store and the seller let me checked three other chargers, no one were working. Then I thought it must be a DC-in board problem, because whole laptop was running fine, graphics, RAM, etc (except for non-charging and my battery, which had less and less energy). So I bought the new DC-in board on ebay, with warranty; and installed it today. I got the same issue. The issue: *iBook is not starting. At all, nor with battery or without it. *After the issue iBook was still working, until my battery ran out of energy (so I don't think it's like bad graphics etc). *When DC cable is plugged in iBook slightly, I see green light; when I put it "to the max" I see orange light (and this happens when I run with or without battery!) This issue is very weird for me. *Now my battery is 1 or 0% so I can't run iBook no more. I can't reset it and so on. The battery status on coconutBattery last time I checked it was like 87%, so the battery can't be dead I suppose. *Charger is working, DC-in board is working. You think it's something with logicboard? I'm afraid it is (it would be the end of my lovely iBook...) but I'm still curious how the laptop could ran perfectly fine on a broken logicboard when I still had got some battery power. Thanks in advance for all your help...
