MacBook Pro :: Why Does Run So Slow On Flash Games

Sep 7, 2010

I have recently purchased a second hand MBP from a friend, its one of the older models with the silver keyboard, has 2.33 GHz intel core duo processor, 2GB ram, 160GB HD and runs fine. I have one problem though, when I load flash games or when I try to play a flash game it slows right down and runs slower than crawling speed. Is there any way I can speed it up or will it always be like this?

Has it been anyone's experience here that Flash based web sites run slowly in flash. Even Macromedia's new site is clunky as H*&L.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Games Extremely Lagging

Nov 19, 2010

Not sure why, but during the last couple of days flash games have been lagging on my 13" MBP to the extreme. My MBP has 4GB of RAM and was built in late 2009. It has only been doing this for the last couple of days. Before that flash games were fine, no lag at all. But recently they lag even when I've just started playing. Right from square one.

MacBook Pro :: Battery Performance On Sims3 Vs Flash Games

Oct 19, 2009

I am planning to buy a new 13" MBP but I am kind of concerned on the battery performance.
a) 2.26 GHz CPU
b) Upgrade RAM to 4GB
c) Upgrade HD to 500GB 5400 WD
d) Brightness at 70% / with keyboard backlight / Bluetooth OFF

Questions: (Can you give me an estimate on the following)
1) How long will the battery last if I play Facebook games nonstop (poker / mafia wars / cafe world / etc.)
2) How long will the battery last if I play Sims3 nonstop?
3) How long will the battery last if I watch a DVD movie nonstop? (from the drive)
4) How long will the battery last if I type documents nonstop?
BTW, can this MBP 13" play sims3 in the default normal settings?

MacBook Pro :: Run/install Games Onto An External HDD?

Jun 21, 2012

I would like to either install Windows on another partition on my 256GB SSD on the new rMBP and run games off an external, or install Windows on an external and games as well. What would be the most efficient (price wise) way to do this without having to sacrifice speed? I was thinking I could use an external thunderbolt hard drive, but it seems like they are all over $300 and over 1TB. I would only really need around 500GB with preferably 7200RPM speeds. Would USB 3.0 be fast enough or would I need to use thunderbolt? I prefer not to have to install 30GB games on the Windows partition on a small 256GB SSD, though I guess I could uninstall and reinstall them as I need (but does this wear down the SSD write speeds over time?) I couldn't get myself to pay another $600 to get a 512GB SSD logic board on the rMBP.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Run Games On Boot Camp

Jun 24, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro late 2011 with low end spec (Processor: intel i5 2.4 GHz - RAM: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 - VGA: Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB) I want to play some games with my macbook like Pro Evolution Soccer 2012.  

I've succesfully installed Windows 7 64 bit in my macbook but when I click the game this note appear: 

“Warning:Your Computer does not meet the Minimum System Requirements to run this software.As a result, you may experience errors during operation.Your Video Card does not meet the required specifications. (GPU:VRAM 128 MB)” 

How come I don't meet the system requirements? It is said that I have 384 MB memory.

Software :: Macbook Pro Running Really Slow/how To Run Smooth?

Oct 12, 2009

I installed Snow Leopard about a week ago and since then, my Macbook Pro has been running sluggish. Especially when I open iChat and start a video, the whole system runs really, really slow. Also, my fans have been kicking on more and more, louder and louder even though my computer isn't running that hot (and I have it sitting on a chill pad).

I recently bought Fallout 3 for the computer. It says that it is a "Games for Windows" game but I need to run it on my Mac (specs are in my signature). I have the newest version of VMware Windows XP and when I put the game in it automatically opens it up. When I try to play the game it works for the menu but the screen goes black when I click start and after a few seconds it goes back to the desktop. I have not done anything with boot camp assistant if that is important.

Windows On Mac :: Finding Other Resolution To Run Games On My Maxed IMac?

Feb 1, 2009

I have the fully loaded 3.06GHz iMac with the upgraded video card. The native resolution is 1920x1200, which even with the iMac's decent specs, is a hefty performance dump being forced to run games in this high resolution. When I try lowering the resolution, literally every other resolution option looks like crap, while 1920x1200 looks crisp and perfect. Most of the other options aren't a matching aspect ratio for the widescreen monitor. Is there a good resolution you recommend, and if it isn't available in my game, is there a way to make it available?

Do I need to hack each game to display other resolution options that match my aspect ratio? How can I get better performance besides turning the graphics to crap? I would be happy running in a lower resolution with all other settings maxed, rather than most settings low with such a high resolution.

Do I have any options here or am I screwed? I'm sure some of you guys must have come across this issue! I'm a new Mac convert who can't get rid of my PC gaming.

Note: Preferably I would like to find an alternate widescreen resolution, rather than finding a way to use 4:3 with black bars, but either would be better than how it is now.

OS X :: Slow Startup Speed Of Mac Pro Due To Flash Card / Reader

Feb 24, 2009

I have a two year old Mac Pro ( 2GB memory and 2GB RAM) which up until now has worked very well, extremely well really. Alas for some inexplicable reason it has decided to takes it's time coming out of the starting gate. It has gone from around 15 seconds to around 5 minutes. So far I have eliminated apps which I have not been using as well as a few startup items that I didn't really need.I have cleaned up my desktop so that there is only one Icon on it.

I have also de-fragged my startup drive.I have used Disk Utility which tells me that the disc is fine, and it seems to be working just fine when it is up and running. I have also unplugged my firewire and USB connections. I have run my cron scripts deleted all rotated log files and repaired disc permissions. Maybe I didn't need to, but heck, who knows, I am no expert. Maybe a reinstall may solve the problem or resetting the Pram may work. I don't really know for sure but I'll try anything just in case.

Windows On Mac :: Games Run Very Slowly In Parallels - Gives Error - Won't Open

Mar 24, 2010

I recently installed windows 7 32 bit via bootcamp. When I run the bootcamp partition via parallels games like warcraft 3 and ancient wars sparta boot up properly. The games run very slowly in parallels so when I go to run them in bootcamp from that same partition it gives me errors and they won't open. Warcraft 3 says something about directx not being able to initialize. I installed all of the drivers for windows and directx 11 is installed. I've also read online that a fix would be to go to the dxdiag.exe and enable shading or something but when I go to the utility there is no option to disable/enable. I'm really lost and would hate to reinstall everything. Could it be because i installed the games via parallels and not bootcamp the first time?

MacBook :: Slow Speed Causing Programs To Run Incorrectly

Over the past month or so I've noticed my Macbook has slowed down greatly. I am using a blackbook, 2.2 GHZ, 4GB ram, santa rosa. Many of my programs are failing to close completely causing me to force quit. I'm having several troubles with iWeb(uploading). I've tried to repair permissions several times, and executed batch tasks with Main menu and still it's buggy, freezing, and slow. I have about 30GB of HD space left, don't know if that could be an issue.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Boot From Flash Then Run Diskwarrior

Mar 4, 2012

I want to run Diskwarrior for directory repair either for maintenance, or after a hard crash – on my 2011 MacBook Pro. Diskwarrior falls out of date everytime Apple updates the OS. I'm currently running Lion. I downloaded the free updater to 4.4, (I have a 4.2) but it still does not boot my mac.I (sort of) solved the problem by installing a full-blown Lion OS on an external firewire hard-drive, booting from it and then running Diskwarrior. Older versions of DW will do directory repair, they just aren't bootable if out of date.What I want to do is to boot from a Flash drive, and then run Diskwarrior.I have created a bootable flash drive, which works, but boots into the Mac OS X Utilities window (the same window you get when you boot into Recovery mode. Even though I'm booted from the flash drive, this window does not let me access Diskwarrior.I also have a 2T Time Capsule attached, can I put a copies of Lion and Diskwarrior on that to solve the problem?

OS X :: Slow Flash Performance On PPC G5?

Nov 20, 2009

I've got a Dual 2 Ghz G5 with 10.5.8 loaded on it, yet I'm getting very slow flash performance. The PC that I'm typing on is a $300 Toshiba with a celeron processor but it does a great job with flash (safari/firefox/IE across the board). Is there a remedy for this? I googled one tip that said to disable hardware acceleration, but it didn't make a difference. When I opened up the Activity Monitor, processor usage was up to 100-150%, so something is not right, the G5 should chew through this.
