Cheating your way out of PC requirements.Follow

Just a quick thought that might be able to be answered very quickly, but I figured it's worth a shot.

Believe it or not, back in 2002 when I purchased FFXI, my desktop was unable to meet the graphics requirements. In response, I downloaded this program called 3D-Analyze which managed to strip some of the more graphically intensive components from the work-load; via some type of graphics card emulation - and allowed my machine to run the game. (Disclaimer: If I'm misinterpreting what 3D-Analyze actually does as a result of naivete I apologize.)

Anyway, since it seems my boot-camped Macbook Pro is going to have quite a difficult time running this game and the fact there's almost nothing I can do about this issue other than throwing my laptop out the window or buying a PS3, I was wondering if there would be any of this type of emulation software available to help combat low PC specs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I suppose you could try it. Worst case, you're no better off than you started. If it doesn't work though, you still need to buy parts and everyone else is already playing the game.

The issue is I'm unable to buy parts, since a Macbook Pro can't be upgraded - hence my desperation to find some other solution. ._____.

Well then in that case, replace "new parts" with "new desktop".

I honestly don't think it will work (just being honest, sorry) but I could be wrong. It has happened once before I think.
