Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

4 Answers

Gaming on a macbook pro

While playing Call of Duty Deluxe Edition on my macbook pro (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz, 2GB memory, GeForce 8600M GT. ) the game refuses to go past level two. It starts to load the next level but stops and displays the error message " maximum number of disconnected pathways exceeded." The only option given is to quit. If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it as I'm really enjoying the game so far!
Cheers Chris

    G'day SkinWill and thanks for your interest. The exact sequence of events is as follows : finish level 2, click on " next level ", next level starts to load with the screen displaying the background blurb intro, the load progress bar at the bottom of the screen gets about a third of the way across , the error message overlay then comes on with the message " Max number of disconnected paths exceeded". The only option given is a "quit" button. The CD is new and completely unmarked. Hope you can help.
    Cheers Chris

    Still having problems with Call of Duty not loading past level 2 on my macbook pro. Tried a cheat code "spdevmap (level name)" to no avail. I am at my wits end .

Have you tried reloading the game at all?

And you have all the updates for the game correct?

    found this on another website, it should help

    He said that the error which I was encountering was basically just a
    carry-over from the PC version of the game, and it was never caught.
    (Although I don't know how, as it happens pretty early in the game) At
    any rate, the only way to get past the error is to use "console
    commands" to manually trigger the next map. Yes, you will miss out on
    the 1 map that has the error, but it's better than not being able to
    play the rest of the game.



    First, ensure Console is enabled (it's a checkbox in one of the
    sub-menus under "Options"). Once console is enabled, hit the "~" key to
    bring up the console. The map that has the error is called "Dawnville",
    so you will want to manually skip to the next one - "Car Ride."



    In the console, type "map carride" (except without the quotation marks)
    and that should take you to the next level! Additionally, here are all
    the levels in the game (by map name)



    Training

    Pathfinder

    Burnville

    Dawnville

    Car Ride

    Brecourt

    Chateau

    POW Camp

    Pegasus Night

    Pegasus Day

    Dam

    Truck Ride

    Airfield

    Ship

    Stalingrad

    Red Square

    Train Station

    Sewer

    Pavlov

    Factory

    Rail Yard

    Tank Drive Country

    Tand Drive Town

    Hurtgen

    Rocket

    Berlin



    Hope this helps anyone who, in the future, might experience the same
    problem as I! For a list of all other console commands (i.e., cheats),
    and what they do, just Google "Call of Duty Console Commands."

    which call of Duty is it, the newest one? Your graphics card may not be good enough, try turning all settings down as low as they can go if the above doesn't work.

are you absolutely certain you are working with an authentic version of that game? It could be that you have an 'off brand' version, no?

Odd, that it would get that far at all and then error out. 
is it the SAME spot every time? it could be that it is trying to spawn a movie sequence or something and erroring out initing the player or on the sound allocation.
Are you sure that is the EXACT error message? Please check that for me.
Also check that your game media is clean and free of scratches.

SOURCE: can i place a 4g and 2g stick in my macbook pro

Hello! The MacBook Pro you have mentioned can only support 4GB's total. 2GB's in the first slot, and 2GB's on the second slot.

What you may have seen by accident was that you can purchase either a 4GB kit, or a 2GB kit. Meaning a 4GB kit with 2 2GB sticks, or a 2GB kit with 2 1GB sticks.

Your best bet is to go with a 2GB stick in each slot to max out your MacBook Pro. 2GB's is the largest each slot can read.

For more information, check out the website below which has very detailed information on memory for various systems.

SOURCE: CD/DVD optical drive malfunctioning. Invariable performance with reading and ripping CDs. Cannot read DVDs.

upgrade your CD/DVD firmware from MAC website and install it.
if it does same even upgrading driver then most could be problem in optical lens so better taking back in the same place where you bought it from if its still under warranty.

or if its out of warranty then you need to take to Tech so they can fix it for you.

please post back if anything changes and rate all answers.
