I install a PC next to it and installed Synergy so I can simply have a dual screen to my mac and cross over with the mouse / keyboard like it was another screen. The second screen is Eve game feed broadcast by my PC.

Now I run it on a old Core2 6700 / less then 2 GB ram equip with a GeFore 8800.

I do understand everyone can't do that, but honestly, it was just unplayable on my Dual QuadCore 2.4 ghz Mac Pro with 6 GB ram........ Just creating a character took me 5 times without crashing on a clean Install Mac Pro.

I am sorry but I have to say, this game is a joke on mac. Evil or Very Mad

I do hope you manage to fix it soon. It's soo much more fun playing on my mac.

should be fine mate, all i can think is its your graphics card

i run on a macpro 1.1 2 x 2.66 dualcore 5gb ram with ati 5700

upgraded from

macpro 1.1

1BG ram

which was unplayable,

I gotto agree.

I'm running EVE on a Mac Pro 5.1 (late 2010) which is the dual 2.4 GHz Xeon quad core, 6 Gb of DDR3, and an ATI HD5770

Wished like hell they had an NVIDIA option, but I get 40 fps in CQ and easy 60 in space. And that's with GFx settings maxed.

I'm not running multiple clients tho, so dunno what that may be like.

Had to do the character creation thing when Incarna hit, but that was pretty painless. Now apparent lag in performance with that.

Still ...

Ok, that's interesting.

So it seem I do have a problem with my setup. My AT card is a ATI Radeon HD 5770.

Problem are countless.
- Window mode crash computer completly
- Creation process end up with missing texture, even missing model. Skin over cloth and stuff like that
- Slow down and total freez when I interact too much in the creation process. (Like a running process that slow things up)
- On my bridge, I have to drasticly reduce texture, shadow and such to have a good FPS
- In space it's *ok* but no impressive performance either.

I do run in 1920 x 1440.

Did you just install the game or you made some tweek?
