Buying a new (mid 2018) 15” MacBook Pro. Considering the different configurations. Anyone have any experience running SL on the following graphics cards? Vega 20, Vega 16, or the 560x Pro? I know there has been talk about Apple not offering OpenGL support after Mojave, but what is everyone else’s experience so far?
SL on MacBook Pro Laptop I have never played SL before. I have a 3 yr old Macbook Pro Laptop purchased new from Apple UK. I loaded the SL Viewer ok and set up a paid account and got started. After 15mins of play, the laptop got very hot and operations slowed down. I logged out and waited until laptop cooled down. I added more spacing under laptop to allow more air circulation. After 20 mins, I got the BSCD and shut down. I tried again the next day and the same happened. This is very disappointing. I am reluctant to try again. I am not a expert on hard or software in computers. I wonder if anyone has had experienced similar computer issues? Reading all the blogs, it seems that many people do and the selection of the appropriate computer is paramount. I am thinking that I should get a higher spec windows gaming laptop ? What is best spec? Any advice on this issue will be gratefully received as I need to escape my Real World!!
