Should any computer currently in production be able to run Cruisn' USA at full frame rate? Because this one can...

Yes - higher end Core 2 Duos should be able to do it even at stock clock.

What is this one? I'm running a C2D @ 2GHz and I tried Cruisn' USA once and it wasn't quite there. Granted, it's a MacBook so video-wise, it's pants.

I think Richard has a Mac Pro.

My MacBook Pro 2.4GHz with a 256MB GeForce 8600M GT graphics card doesn't run it full speed either. Close, but not quite.


Macscene covers emulation of everything on Mac OS X.

Good lord. Does AO have detectable compile time on that?

Haha, I never even thought of testing that. A clean fully optimised universal binary build of Audio Overload (i.e. two full sets of compiles), totalling 654 files, just built in eighteen seconds. I burst out laughing when I saw how fast it went. For purposes of comparison, the Dual 2.5 G5 it replaced took about ten minutes to do the same compile...!

But rather funnier, and keeping this on topic for the forum, was MAME. I just downloaded the source tree of MAME OSX 0.124 from the official site, and compiled a Universal Binary in three minutes, thirty-seven seconds. Crikey.

Richard, did you get an ATI or NVIDIA card? I can't get SDLMAME to work with OpenGL because supposedly the drivers are busted. However MAME OS X seems to be working fine on my Mac Pro. I bought the GeForce 8800 GT.
