The FPS drop comes from the fact that you're using a MacBook Pro to game. A MacBook Pro, like most laptops, lacks a dedicated GPU. Even the Mac Mini will run Crysis better than your Pro, because of its GPU. If you can afford a MacBook, I'm pretty sure you can afford to build a 600-1000$ gaming rig. Steer clear from Macs while gaming, however, as the GPU's cannot be upgraded.

I'm sure there's a Liberal Arts major somewhere near you... Try selling it to them if you want the money to buy/build a good computer. Heck, even walmart and bestbuy carry better gaming options on budget than Mac...

Unfortunately, you can tweak your laptop all you want but all that effort won't substantially change your gameplay experience imo.  People have spent a good deal of money building new machines that still struggle with the mod.  Before you mess with the hardware go down the CCC route.  If you must =)

Milage and opinion will vary, but in my opinion any laptop, mac or otherwise is likely to be less than satisfactory in running this game, than a properly spec'd gaming rig.

Again opinion will vary, but i reckon this game is well worth the cost of building a gaming rig designed for it.

I wish i could offer better advice than that, but i had to replace the box i used to host and play MW4 mercs, when i wanted to step up to the magnificence that is this game.

Either way i hope you can find a way to play this game, the community is a great one, and even at the beta stage the game is great, and its potential as it evolves is very exciting imo

You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

Okay, so I haven't posted in this thread for a while, but I tried reinstalling the mod (that took a while) and turning up the virtual memory while running the game under minimum settings, and performance is passable. It still freezes up a lot on servers with 4-6 players, but at least it isn't unplayable. I haven't tried the larger Huntress servers yet, and I'll give CCC another go.

upgrading to a newer machine really makes a world of difference.  My 5 year old PC was only barely sufficient for playing MWLL, but now my new machine keeps the framerate nice and high.

Not sure what the rules on Necro'ing are - I couldn't find a post with forum rules. So if I'm breaking any rules, sorry in advance.

Anyways, I'm still running the same shitty old computer from when I posted this a year ago (if you're wondering why, the words "broke college student" should tell you everything you need to know), and I've been wondering if any optimizations have been made to make the mod more manageable on my system. MWO is actually playable on my system now, and I hope MWLL is a similar story. I could test it myself, but I'd rather have an idea of what to expect before I spend the time on re-installing it.

Thanks in advance.

When was the last time you played?  Development was shut down some time ago, and I don't think many optimizations made it into the last builds.  It may be better for you, it may be worse.

I suck!! But WE are AWESOME.  We started a unit.  What's that?!  YOU WANNA TOUCH MY UNIT?!! :P ^^12thVR Recruitment Page(clickthepic) ;)

I think around the original post. I definitely haven't given it a try since development stopped.

Well there's ya problem!

Don't buy anything from Apple, it's all way overpriced. i.e. You get less for the same cost.

There have definitely been some performance improvements since then, but if it's enough for your rig... my guess is no ;).
