Hi,

i tried playing mass effect (medium-high) settings and CoD WaW (high settings)
on my macbook pro 13" trough bootcamp
it goes wel for a few minutes but then everything starts running choppy :/
could it be that the macbook gets to hot everything slows down?
or is it a problem with wrong drivers or something
tnx

First thing, go to the ATI or Nvidia website and update your drivers. Then turn off Vsync which causes problems in lots of games, and turn antialiasing off. Also, (obviously) make sure your system meets minimum reqs for the game. If you have one of those integrated GPU models, it's going to have trouble with ME.

The 9400M graphics card in there won't be able to run Mass Effect as Medium-High settings. I'd down the settings until you think its playable, and also update your drivers like jgwdoc said

I'm so sorry for that but every time I played that game I encountered no problem..maybe there's a technical problem.

Hi there

Anyone help me please. I have a Macbook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core i5, I have Bootcamp 3.0.4 and Windows 7 installed.
Im trying to run FIFA 12 in Bootcamp and cant get graphics to realize the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
Any idea of what I need to do to get the graphics and Windows running. I have installed the drivers from the Startup disk and still doesnt change.
When in Windows it only picks up i think its an 8mb graphics card, the built in one.
Please let me know

Thanks

Chris

The latest Version of Bootcamp is 3.3. IŽd try that first.
