Assess your Mac's compatible with Aspyr's games.

Overview

Aspyr Game Agent is no longer supported. Users are encouraged to compare their Mac's hardware with the system requirements of Aspyr's titles using Mac Match.

Aspyr Game Agent is the utility that allows users to easily match their computer hardware with the system requirements of Aspyr's titles. Users will be able to quickly identify which games will run on their current system and determine necessary system upgrades for any other Aspyr games of their choosing. Game Agent is an OS X application that automatically checks the user's Mac configuration- including OS version, RAM size, video card, and processor speed- and then, game by game, tells the user if the game will run well, will run or will not run on their system. It then gives a summary of hardware or software updates necessary for those games that will not run. Game Agent also automatically updates its list of Aspyr's games and their system requirements, making it easy to access current, personalized gaming information.

OK... this app is a joke... seriously. I have an 8-core Mac Pro with 10GB of RAM and a Radeon HD 4870... and it doesn't recognize my Apple-installed video card? And what about Homeworld 2? Because I have an Intel processor instead of a PowerPC CPU it says I don't meet minimum requirements? This program is a great idea, horribly executed.

Aspyr Support says that this app is not to be used anymore and that the Mac Match feature on gameagent.com should be used instead.

We are in the process of updating our available hardware so the current app does not support some of the newer mac video cards and processors. If you could send us your system profile it would be helpful in keeping the application updated. Please send feedback to gameagent@aspyr.com. Thank you for the feedback!

haha, how come version 1.0 is so much better than this one even though its a year old? true it doesnt give info on new macs but it still works for "your mac" even if it is a newer one. 1.5 is so complex in comparison, its a whole friggin web browser! version 1.0 had 3 simple tabs and listed all the games. at the side they all said whether that game would run or not. if you wanna find this out in the new version you have to click each game.

This app don't recognize the graphic card in my NEW iBook 12"/1.33GHz... (ATI9550), so it listed quite all games as "not playable" even if the card is good enough... Please update the app quickly...

Is not very acurate. Here is a partial list of Games that it says will not work on my upgraded BW G3 PL 1GHz ,ATI 9200, 1G MB, 10.38. They all work fine. BattleField 1942 and add ons COD & United Offensive, C&C Generals, HomeWorld2,Space Colony. And others ( they Fly )Mostly this is because the requirements listed are a G4. The Only G4 games I have found so far that Do Not work (yet) are Splinter Cell It worked on my Bw G4 650 and Tron. Take this program with a grain of salt when it lists G4 required. As long as you have a fast G3 ( 900 and up ) and a ATI 9200 or equivlant and enough memory they will Fly I get 31-33 avg FPS on Halo 1.51 @ 1024*720 with my G3 1GHz machine and it sucks On my G4 650 12-14 FPS.

This is a wonderful application. First of all, my G3 900/512K L2/640mb/32mb V doesn't run everything... as you all can imagine. This application tells me what does work on my machine so I'm not wasting money or time. Also, you can specify a 1.25ghz eMac and it'll tell you what will run on that, and a dozen other system presets. In fact, this application makes it even feasible to know what specs I want in a used laptop that I may be soon in the market for. It tells what games are coming soon, and what's new, and all the present games by Aspyr, and a little bit about each game, and what the basic requirements are on each of them. For one, I'm not a big gamer, but I do like a new game now and then(then there's games like tekken 3 and pitfall II... lets not go into the hours i spent in those). This application makes Apsyr more convenient to shop from, then anybody else. At least from online. Blizzard ships all their games with mac and windows versions... so I can buy Warcraft at any Walmart... now that tops the physically convenient scale. For those who make fun of the application, because they spent the big bucks... or the big credit on the newest dual G5s... I'm going to take a guess that Aspyr wasn't expecting all the G5 dualies to download this application, as there's not really a game out there that needs the power of a G5 dualie. As far as detecting you're system wrong, I suppose it could have, although it detected my system great.

I don't really get all the bad reviews, I had no trouble with it. Beautiful interface, and it gives me all the upcoming games with release dates.

If you use ati displays utility, you can override the regular video display settings and change them to opengl. Ive been able to run homeworld, cc generals and even bf1942 on my g3 640mb 900mhz processor at quite good speeds.

Hah! This is awesome =) Thanks guys! Sure didn't see this one coming.. ... Although your "recommended" requirements sometimes are a tad bit lower than they should be. Ah well, so neat anyway!
