    Ok so I've heard that Counter Strike Source runs just fine on the MacBook, so I decided to give it a try. After finally downloading it though, I have a problem stopping me from playing. After the loading screen starts up, the screen turns black. It's still actually running, because when I scroll the mouse around I can hear the menu options clicking when I hover over. Any idea what that could be?

    My only assumption is perhaps the RAM...but I dunno how that could any suggestions would help greatly.

    Probably a stupid question - have you installed the Mac drivers yet?

    As a CSS veteran on PC, im pretty sure that this is a problem with your GFX settings in game. This is quite a risky thing to try, but there may be a way for you to change them:

    1. Hover your cursor in the top-left corner of the screen
    2. Move it down the screen until you hear the first sound of it being over a menu button.
    3. On the fourth sound, you should be over settings.
    4. Click on that

    If a window appears, navigate to Graphics - Advanced, and set EVERYTHING on the lowest possible setting.

    If a window doesnt appear, then i dont know :confused:

    nothing to do with your RAM. Windows isn't nearly as picky about RAM as OS X is. It sounds like a graphics driver problem.
