Hi guys,


Does any able to play games on 8600GT 512MB?


I tried playing AOE3 and it just went blank with the theme music.


And whenever I tried changing to lower resolution, it just went blue screen. I'm using 1920 by 1200.


Is it just me or there's no way to play games on hackintosh?

Anybody who played AOE3 on their hackintosh, please raise your keyboard and tell me your computer specs.

I've tried playing AOE3 with a GeForce 8600GTS with 256MB.

I also have 2.5GB of RAM and a Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13Ghz. I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.2 vanilla.


It was a disaster. Utter and complete {censored}. It does not even compare to how it runs in Windows.

It was extremely laggy and had some visual glitches. Not to mention that it triggered a Segmentation Fault.

I was able to run it maxed out in Windows at 1280x1024. Not possible in Mac OS.


The end result is that it totally sucked and it was the last time I'm trying to run any games in Mac OS.


The GUI doesn't even run 100% smooth all the time. And we're talking about a dedicated midrange GPU. It should be more than capable to render a few textures and effects.


Probably a kext issue though. Mac OS X 10.5.3 here I come...
