GTW and Mac ... How is it

Anyone experiencing problems or does it runs smoothly ? Does it slow down load time ?

    I'm playing it on a Mid-2012 MacBook Pro and it's running pretty well so far on high settings! The loading times have increased, but I honestly don't care since the expansion is so much fun. :P No freezes or crashes yet.

    In high settings! Wouldnt it make your laptop very hot and noisy ?

    Any Mac playing games get hot and noisy. That is the downside of a portable Mac.
    The Retina MacBook Pro's are a little less noisy thanks to the asymmetric fans, but they do still get very hot.

    I play my game on medium-high settings and it is still working great. Yes, the loading screens might be around 20 to 30 second but if I would've wanted a gaming laptop I shouldn't have bought a Mac. So I am not complaining at all and loving my game!

    untrue. my MBA runs it on high settings and not have it get loud once. it did get warm but never hot.

    How did you manage to do that? I have the latest mbp with dedicated graphic card . I run in low settings yet it makes quite some noise

    Please can you post the spec. of your Mac? Specifically the graphics card? I'm thinking there is an NVIDIA bug in the latest patch maybe...

    It is nvidia 2g . I could have played on high settings but the laptop would generate a lot of noise and heat!

    Btw I have 16G Ram

    It can handle it though, don't worry. So long as you allow air to circulate underneath, your Mac will be fine. I have the 1Gb 650M, all settings on high and it gets hot and the fans kick in frequently too. There does seem to be an issue with the game and NVIDIA cards though. Whilst they work great the fan usage is getting ridiculous, and it's not even when the CPU/GPU temps. are ridiculously high either.

    I know, I understand :)

    I'm running Yosemite so the bug is in the game, not a driver issue on our Macs.

    I am curious how @solarstorm can play the game on high setting without the loud fan noise ...

    The 15" MBPs have two fans, the MBAs and 13" MBPs have one so our 15" MBPs will be louder. The high end 15" also have dedicated graphics rather than the integrated in 13" MBPs and MBAs so they are running with a lot more power, hence the need to cool down more. BUT, my fans are kicking in when the temperatures are still relatively low which is why I think there's a NVIDIA bug in the game.
