Is it common to have much lower FPS on your Mac side than your Windows side? It seemed... very choppy, when i moved my mouse around comparitively to my windows side, which is relatively lag-free.

Well, if you are playing in windows mode and in one of those macbooks that have 2 graphics chips, you have to enable the better performance in the energy settings so it uses your better chip.

if you don;t want to do that you can get this program

and you can switch between chips

I know all about that and I always use the highest setting for the graphic card. (Its one card that turns part of itself off, btw.) That shouldn't be the issue at hand.

on windows, i can reach 60 FPS on all low settings

on mac, i can only reach 40 FPS max, regardless of settings

I posted in a different thread, but from what I believe to be the underlying issue here is that Apple hasn't updated drivers related to gaming for the MacOS in awhile, and probably won't any time soon.
