As the title says - regarding to the Shader 1.1 requirement,
will it run on my (early) MacBook with GMA 950? :confused:
Woe is me if I'll have to buy a new laptop just for this :P

According to wiki...
(...)The GMA 950 shares the same architectural weakness as the GMA 900: no hardware geometry processing. Neither basic (DX7) hardware transform and lighting, nor more advanced vertex shaders (DX8 and later) are handled in the GMA hardware.
I really don't know. And laptops really aren't gaming machines. :undecide:
You're better off buying a reasonably modern desktop PC. It'd be cheaper than a new laptop.

I'm running Beyond the Sword on my laptop with Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME with reduced graphics and works ok, but a bit slow in places. It's not a race so I don't mind.
I assume GMA 950 superceded my card/chip?!
I've had the message that says the game won't run on this computer but I've switched it off in the XML(?) and it works fine.

Well, I don't know. You won't know until you install it and try to run it.
