    Hello everyone,

    I have installed WC3 and Frozen Throne, from the official discs.
    Whenever I play on 1680x1050(32bit) the computer hangs and I need to shut it off by pressing the power button.

    That does not happen when playing on 1680x1050 16bit (which looks awful).
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!:)

    Unless you're using an external monitor to play at 1680x1050, the MBP screens don't support that resolution natively.

    Which MBP do you have? 8600M GT or 9400M/9600?

    Yeah, forgot to mention that I am using an 22'' external monitor.
    Using 9400. Same happens with 9600.
    Macbook pro 2.4Ghz.

    What you are describing sounds very much like the problem related to custom games. Have a read here

    (Command+Option+Escape will help immensely)

    Could it be by chance that the problem hasn't occurred on 16-bit colour? I've never heard of this helping and will test it myself.
