O RLY? At full resolution, even? (Blocky non-native-rez graphics on non-CRT monitors drive me nuts.) Then how come the Mac version of Prey ran at an almost, but not quite, entirely unacceptable framerate? I played it to completion anyway, but that made me swear off trying to run any other beefy games on this thing.
Yup, 1440x900, at high (though not highest) settings. I can't say how many fps I get, but usually HL2 runs very smooth (the Episodes are a bit slower). The reason is that the Source engine is specifically optimised to run well on a wider range of hardware than the Doom 3 engine.

What Steam games do you have? Remember, not everything works in CrossOver.

Orange box.

On the X1600 generation MBP's HL2 willl run on all high at 1440x900, just short of anti aliasing, and in some cases HDR.

Those definitely should work. Strange.
