Hey guys, I'm wondering how Warcraft 3 would run on the following setup: (for those who have the game and the same or similar setup...)

G4/800 MHz (2 MB DDR L3)
Geforce 4 MX, 32 MB DDR (2X-AGP)
512 MB PC-133 SDRAM
10.2.6 and 9.2.2

Reports I have seen say it will run faster on 9.2.2 than on X, but that X performance gets faster with each revision. Most people are disappointed with this game's performance on Mac compared to a PC, myself included. It will still run though, and is a fantastic game even if you have to run at low detail. You'll see some posts by me in here:

It runs great on my G4 533 so on your machine you will not have any problems.

G4/450 (first release fo Sawtooth models) with a GeForce 2MX ran fine. Detail levels were dropped a bit to accomodate and I found some levels really bogged down with more than 2 dozen critters on the screen at once...

Your setup sounds fine.

The only problem I have found is difficulty micro-managing in large online battles when detail is set to medium or high.
If that's not a problem for you, you should be able to run at max details all the time.

Runs exceptionally well on my 17-inch iMac G4 512 megs RAM...I have the 64 meg video card and I suspect that makes the biggest difference, among all factors.
