    Thanks for that statement. Most people tend to ask questions though.

    here's a revolution that might surprise you:

    call tech support.

    they actually do know a thing or two.

    It's out for Mac? If it's not, tech support may or may not volunteer to help. However for the post author, do a google search on "GTA San Andreas screen goes dark" and some links will appear. Will they help? Don know... :)

    By same mac you mean.. exactly the same? As in same OSX version, drivers, and hardware?

    I mean I could have the peneryn 2.4ghz MBP, 256 8600m gt, 2gb ram.. and my buddy could have a MBP also except he has a Radeon x1600 and 1gb ram.. it would be fairly obvious why my games would perform better than his and some games won't work on his. OR i have leopard and he has tiger -- that would make a HUGE difference because some games won't play on tiger, more specifically newer ones.

    On the moon.
    I doubt it'll ever come out for OSX either, since its now going on 4 years old, pretty much anyone that wanted to play it has played it by now on PC, PS2, or Xbox/Xbox360.

    The market would be so small it wouldn't be worth the money to bring it out.

    I guess "for Mac" means Ciderized version. If so, they are known to be incredibly buggy. I'm not surprised it doesn't work on your system.
