Apparently people have managed to install newer versions of the OS on Macs that aren't officially supported, so it may be worth looking into that.

Yeah I mentionned it in my post, here a link : http://forums.macrum...45#post14341245
But my model isn't yet supported and it's a real hack as I quoted it.

Its how times go. The computer and software industry is an ever changing and evolving beast. One can not expect to stay with the exact same hardware/os forever and expect the future to cater to the ancient and out dated.

Just saying ;)
About this specific point the problem is before it was pointless to continue use a 7 year old computer. But that's been a rather special series of generation, this computer started when not many applications/games was supporting well multi core and multi processor. Then first years it grown in power which is rather unique, ie the 2*2 3Ghz was a lot 1x 3Ghz at first, then became 2x 3Ghz an when compiler and all applications started get a full support of multi core and multi processsor it became a 4x 3Ghz. And when I updated its graphic card it was like buy a new model with a CPU outmatching a lot too much the old graphic card. There's many games that now run a lot faster than what they did when I played them first and it's the same computer.

The problem is all the trouble is coming from a very weird architecture based on a 64bit which isn't a true 64bit. And it wasn't clear at all. That's the only reason I started have toubles with this computer and Windows 7 and later OS and with Mountain Lion and future OS. The most irritating is an iMac crap as old (but probably a later model) is still fully supported.

It seemed pretty obvious what one had to do to get the "good" ending to me. Without going into too much spoilers it gave me the same vibe as the choices in Bioshock 2 did in regards to the "dark one" character. Once I realized that it was clear what I had to do. *edit*

You can easily get the good ending by simply tipping her beforehand.   ...Wait, what were you talking about?

However with that said... 10.6 is still a HUGE percentage in use out there. With our users, 10.6 is more in use than 10.7 (but less than 10.8). However 10.5 has dropped like a rock over the last year, and is why we (at MGS) decided to stop future feature support for that platform. MGS will still function with 10.5 as it always did, but all future development (new features / redesigns etc) is now aimed at 10.6 and higher.


OT:

I came across a G5 Tower in an organization I work for. It's a bit neglected to say the least, but since it's stuck at 10.5.8 there isn't too much to do for it. I did at least put in another gig of memory in it's giant empty case.  It's in such a PC heavy place that if it was replaced, it probably would be with a PC.

I bought the game when it was on sale on Steam recently and started to play yesterday.

The good news: on my 2012 15" Retina MBP, it runs silky smooth with the highly descriptive "Quality" slider at its maximum setting.

The bad news: I don't think that really means much. First of all, I'm not sure at which resolution the game runs. It could be either 1280x800 or 1440x900 (I lost count of the pixels) but I think it's the first one. There's apparently no way to change the resolution or to check which resolution the games uses – not even in the settings file (which I edited to change the terrible FOV). Secondly, I'm pretty sure the developers disabled most of the advanced eye candy in the Mac version, even at maximum quality. There's no volumetric lighting or fog, no HDR effects, no (noticeable) ambient occlusion, no motion blur and the real-time shadows are coarse and pixelated (and somewhat glitchy). At least I think there is some kind of anti-aliasing, but I'm not completely sure.

The game doesn't really look like crap as result, but it's definitely not very impressive, especially in comparison to other relatively recent games like Borderlands 2 or Bioshock Infinite.

Looked better than those two games on my rig to me. Playing through the whole game I had no issues with the image quality and I still noticed some impressive in-game effects especially the weather (rain, wind, etc.) And yes, there is a form of antialiasing on.. I noticed when one puts it on max in the preferences SSAA (supersampling antialiasing) is set to 1.somethinglongnumber....

Also I never noticed the type of blurriness and increased aliasing that upscaled games have on my screen. Even with antialiasing on if a game gets upscaled there's still noticeable aliasing going on.

Also, for me right now Bioshock Infinite can't beat it due to the fact that I can't turn up the settings on it without it crashing. Some of the scenes in that game where pretty impressive though I'll give it that.

It is a very nice game, i'm at about half of the story. Good level design, nice narration, nice animation, very good graphic sound and atmosphere. I love this game.

Finished this over the holidays and really enjoyed it - probably the best single player story lead game I've played since Bioshock Infinite. The only other one that came closer was Spec Ops - The Line.

No hiccups all the way through here (09 Mac Pro with Radeon 5870 and everything on max although only 1680 x 1050 - assuming it runs at that as that is the limit of my display).

It seemed to me to just run at the native resolution.. It did on mine and didn't have a choice for anything else.

I'm looking forward to play Metro Last Light once I finish AC IV and Metro 2033, the book. Glad to hear it's running well on "our" iMac, Tetsu. :)
