Default Games... - 04-10-2009, 06:45 AM

I know the mini 9 isn't a power horse. Not meant to be, but what games have you guys been playing on it? I've been able to try trackmania on mine, and it's just a bit too slow (about 12-15 fps average). I have also tried QuakeLive, and it runs pretty decent on full settings. (by decent, ~20 fps average) If you turn the settings down a bit, it runs really well, and is definately playable.

How about you guys?

Oh, and a plus to quakelive is that it's browser based, so not much is stored on the hard drive, keeping the precious little space the mini has. (I have the dell 4 gig and 512 ram in it. O-o is there any way to increase the virtual ram for the video card past 64mb? to 128 maybe?)

World of Goo runs great. As does Peggle. Didn't really buy it for games, though, so I haven't tried more than that.
