I have a new iMac 24'inch with the following specs:
Processor: 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 6MB shared L2 cache
Memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory.
Naturally, games aren't too friendly with the Mac operating system, so an alternative such as Windows is required for a larger selection of games to play.
For those that don't know, Mac's have a program called "Bootcamp," which allows the harddrive to be split into a separate partition to install and run Windows. Not being a huge fan of Windows, but wanting to play the new Monkey Island, I decided to install the free Windows 7 Release Candidate 32-Bit version. I was told that the 32-bit version was recommended over the 64-bit version.
Once Windows 7 was installed, I downloaded Tales of Monkey Island and booted it up. It opened up in the incorrect resolution for my screen, so I did some tweaking to get it in full-screen mode. Once the resolution was set I started a new file and was met with a very laggy experience with a choppy framerate. To get the game to run smoothly I needed to change the quality to "1".
Considering that my system passes the requirements to run this game, I'm confused as to why I can only run this game smoothly on the lowest quality setting. Is it something to do with Windows 7? Is there any known problems about this game running slowly?
Does anyone have any solutions?
