Anyone want to try out the X-Plane demo (or have X-Plane 9) and test to see whether or not it's OK on a newer MB with the 9400M card? As posted, try 1024x768 and medium-ish settings if possible and report findings. I don't know that if it can handle some decent/modern 3D games at mid settings, if it's capable of this. Thanks.

Oops. Link to the demo here for non-owners but new MB owners ... http://dev.x-plane.c...nstallerMac.zip


According to "palple" over on the xplanefreeware forums, it does indeed work well. His reply ...

"I've got that same machine, and I can run x-plane at 1024x800, windowed mode, at 25fps, with more than medium settings (I've got 2x antialiasing, water reflections set to max, very high res, anisotropic filtering, medium objects)."
