I downloaded the demo, and I cant even get into that. After the intro video (with the voice over) the screen says 'loading' for a few seconds and then disappears. The game sticks there on a black screen, I cant exit it in any way other than cold restarting my mac.

Im running on an intel macbook with OS 10.4.11 and 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

If there is an intel graphics card in the macbook then it won't work, it might work if it is a x3100 but older version won't.

Hi. Downloaded the game demo last night and am having exactly the same problem. I don't think the issue is an "older" Intel card. My Macbook is less than 6 months old. Any ideas? I'd like to buy the game but don't feel I can for obvious reasons.

Thanks!

Do you have any idea, which graphic card do you have in your laptop ?
If you have the same problem as harpdevil, it is possible that you have a intel graphic card, and for some reason it wont work... :/

Intel GMA 950. I bought the computer late last summer, new, so even if it was sitting on the shelf for awhile before I bought it, it can't be THAT old. Smile

I appreciate any feedback. I'd love to be able to try this game. It looks great!

Thanks.

Ah, the game doesn't run on GMA 950, only the very latest Intel integrated graphics(X3100) is able to run the game.

ok, i got the same graphic card ^^
I'm sure there something wrong with the driver, but what...

I can confirm that the game looks really great ! <3

If you get the game working on your i950 before me, just say me how you did that ^^
