Default [MAC] Black Screen SS3

Hello,

Noticed you had a lot of people having the same problems as I did (Black screen, only the HUD visible), so I thought I might as well post my log in hopes this problem will be resolved quicker.

P.S, I already tried verifying game cache as well as the clock workaround, neither worked.
Thanks,
ParZ

In this case it may be a grey area though, your video card just about manages to meet the minimum system requirements. That could be the culprit but not exclusively the commonly reported problem by other Mac users. Let's just wait and see what happens, I certainly hope you will be able to play the game with the fix, it's a goodie.

However this further supports the theory that ATi cards are causing these problems somehow. One Mac user reported getting the game to work fine just by swapping the ATi video card for a nVidia one.

Thanks, I'm glad I could help at least a little bit.

Unfortunately, probably no chance of me getting a nVidia video card any time soon. Crossing my fingers in hope that said 'fix' will do some good for me and other ATi users.
