No games are not made to "Require" a Radeon/GeForce...but they are the recommended card for the best gaming experienence. True the ATI RAGE isn't obsolete....but it's not anywhere close to being a good gaming card. You mention that UT runs great on OS9 with your 8mb RAGE.....I can only assume you've never ran it on a Radeon/Geforce. If you had, you'd see how poorly it actually does run on the lesser cards.Originally posted by ABassCube
games are not made to require a Radeon or GeForce. The ATI RAGE is not obsolete yet... nor is the G3. Even if the games is not made to be run on a laptop, the iMacs still have G3 processors and the RAGE. As I said before, Unreal Tournament runs great in OS 9! I really want an OS X version.
Alice generally works OK in 9, but not well in X. I've asked Aspyr about this, and they said that the RAGE drivers were not complete for X, so it was using software rendering. That's why it's so bad. Once the drivers are complete, I'm sure Alice will run just as good, if not better, in X than in 9.
