The "supported" 9400m is total BS. If you have a 9400m save your money. Blizzard scammed a lot of us.

Will Diablo III even work on my mac?

Do I have to get a new mother board to play the game or just a new video card?

Did I just spend 60 bucks for nothing or can I still play the game if I get a new video card?

What do I need to buy to play the game on my mac?

Obviously I need help...somebody, anybody?
Well if you have a 9400m like alot of us here.

you should not go buy the game.

The game will load for you and you can play; provided that you can deal with the lag at times and fast-forward at certain intervals.

I think blizzard definition of supported are you can install and play but doesnt covers the quality of the experience.

Just my 2 cents.

im curious as to if this is just new game buggy-ness on the mac version, or if its a definite screw up on bliz's part. cause if its the latter then this is just a blatant scam.

from what i read i think diablo 3 should be able to run. but i have still been having issues. when i start the game and begin playing things run smoothly for about 2 minutes of gametime, then things slow to a snails crawl. i already have all the graphic settings set to the lowest possible. is this a wireless connection issue?

I think mine meet at least the minimum requirements except the graphics card:

Processor 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256 MB

Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4

Pls tell me that I can play D3 at least in the lowest setting :s Thanks.

I have the same specs and I have everything turned down as low as it will go, along with running in 800X600 resolution and have terrible fps. In town it was a whopping 20fps but most dungeons or anything with multiple monsters was at 9-10fps. :(

I'd love to see what the Blue Posters say about it though.

    **Note: Be advised that some wireless connections do not meet the minimums required to be a true Broadband Internet connection. Wireless results may vary.

    I have the Intel HD 3000, I followed your advice and purchased Lion for my macbook, but I'm still having the same problems I had before upgrading. In fullscreen, my fps is still only 12-15. This needs to be fixed ASAP, I've now spent a lot of money to play your game... and apparently it was for nothing.
    Blizzard?!?! Nvidia 9400m is it going to work or not? I get 15fps in town and less than 10fps when fighting.

    MacBook (White)
    13-inch, Late 2009
    Processor 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 2 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB

    Unplayable? Have a solution? Lowest settings are enabled.
    Late 2009 imac 21 with NIVIDIA GEforce 9400m...playing the game on 10-20 fps with lowest on EVERYTHING, can play heroes of newerth with 30-40 fps hithiest everything and same with wow.....

    Is this all because of my video card or is it because blizzard is lazy?!? plz answer

    I have been having high latency issues and I went to check System Requirements, Here are my specs.

    MacBook Pro

    2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB

    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3

    I didn't see my specific graphics card on the list of supported cards. Is the 9400M supported? Is this why the game has had such poor framerate and or latency? If it isn't it is pretty frustrating since, I have had this computer for less than 3 years.
    I'm using a GeForce 9400M and still finding unbelievable lag on almost every map. I understand this isn't the best graphics card, but is it possible that the lag could be caused by the server? I'd really rather not buy a graphics card update.
    agreed blizzard really need to step it up with fixing the problem . 60 bucks for a game that runs so choppy because 9400.... its really disappointing to see this from blizzard
    [quote="50510506138"]Are you using the default resolution as well? I believe this is 800x600

    This is small step for me, but big step for humanity. Or something like that...[/quoteso

    whats going to happen for those who bought the game and meet the min requirements like me running a 94000 . and still unplayable. i don't think its fare to have purchase this game and to have meet the min req and not have it playable

    Like everyone else, 9400M fail. 4 GB mem. 2.14 core duo processor by intel. 0.6.8

    Runs Starcraft 2 (almost surprisingly) at medium settings. Expected to play D3 on low settings just fine but it's unplayable. I don't care about it looking pretty I just want it to work.
    Same !@#$ here 9400M. Thanks Blizzard
