not so great on a g4 350
Authored by: kuribo on Aug 18, '01 04:32:20PM

Even though macmame runs fine in 9 or classic, the new carbon version
still doesn't have enough horse power to run Mr. Do, even with cpu hogging on.
Maybe 10.1'll fix it. We can hope.

Seems fine...

I have a G4/350 at work, so (during lunch!) I fired up Mr. Do, and it seemed to run just fine. It was fine in software mode, and looked even better with the new OpenGL extension for OS X -- grab it from MacMame's downloads page. Looking at the frame rate info (command-F), the game runs at 61/61 FPS almost constantly - whether using the software or OpenGL renderer. It very occasionally dropped to 99%, but that was as low as I saw it get.

What kind of frame rates are you getting, and what's your configuration? This is a G4/350 with 192mb of RAM, with a whole bunch of other stuff running (web server, web browser, mySQL, email, Classic, etc.)

I've got MAME running on my Kid's G3 iMac 400 and it's running fine :)
