Gears of War MBP
Posted 25 February 2008 - 03:57 PM
I've got GoW here on Windows XP running via Boot Camp on a MBP 15" 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB Ram, 256MB GF8600M GT.
Each time I run the game I get warning to update the drivers. Downloaded what was recommended but said it couldn't install as it didn't find the right files, used the Nvida to search what is actually in the laptop, same thing.
Decided to skip all this instead, played till the 1st cut scene in the chopper and it will repeatedly crash at this point. Read other people have had this working on lower spec MBP's wondering how they managed to stop the crashing, talk me through it?
Thanks in advance!

Completed the game yesterday... casual settings... I did lower the resolution down from default before I did this driver upgrade, didn't change it afterwards as the game ran just fine and looked great still.
Did have some choppy moments towards the end of the game play but nothing frequent or caused me to get killed/crash. There was a part in the game where you enter a factory with a cut scene, just before it that would crash every time, just hit return to skip and get back into game play.
Over all - 98% very smooth game play, brief moments of stutter, 1 cut scene would cause a crash. Impressed.
Crysis up next me thinks.
