    Mac..

    Well, I know the last 4 threads in this forum were by me, but I still would like some help x3

    Well, a while ago my mum bought a cheap eMac from the college she works at, and well, with no decent computer to game with other than my Mum's laptop which overheats stupidly quick I would like to play some games on t3h eMac. I know about WINE and all this stuff, and I've looked at WINE, but I've got no idea how to download it let alone install it and get it running. Also, BootCamp etc. probably won't be an option unless my dad gives the all-clear. So, any suggestions or help would be cool.

    Oh! Before I forget, the games I'm interested ATM are Counter Strike: Source, Half-life 2 and episodes, and Zombie Panic! Source (a HL2 mod)
    Take that ya one-eyed, bomb-lobbin', cactus eatin', pot bellied, thug fat jigglin-chicken whoopin' big, back-stabbin lob-armed creepy spastic bloody, blind-eyed pashy little twitchy pickle-headed rocke- hoppin, potato-poppin' phony two-faced stealthy mutant bastard!

    First of all you have to tell us what spec the eMac is as I doubt it will run even source games under WINE.

    Re: Mac..

    If that's the right specification then keep dreaming. It says 64MB of VRAM, that's not enough for CSS let alone decent SourceMods. And bear in mind that when running on WINE or BootCamp, you wont get half of that.

    Build yourself a decent comp, its not that expensive.

    Ya that will come close to running source games even on the lowest possible settings on a windows setup but not the WINE emulation.

    Hmm, k. And by the looks of it (And I have done some research) I can get a computer which is as good as Chaz's which is less expensive and also pre-built. So I'll keep saving for that :P

    Don't think it's worth making a new thread for it. But what do you guys think about this? It's what I have right now.

    It's got integrated graphics dude.... Won't run much with that. Spend 300-400 and get a decent desktop.

    It cost 500 fyi :P And It used to be able to run Source games at max graphics perfectly, until one day it all went wrong for some reason
