    Hi All,

    I've exhausted my sources for help, so I hope perhaps one of you can be brilliant. I am using a 2011 2.2GHz 15' MBP with a AMD 6750M and playing the game under mac OS. Because the GPU is new and unsupported by the game, Aspyr refused to help.

    The game crashes to desktop when I tried to load a game while in game. This issue has been mentioned here: http://forums.2kgames.com/showthread.php?89826-Crash-on-load-from-hdd-and-steam-cloud-while-in-game.

    Apparently, it is related to the size file size and progression of the game. When you first start a game, you can load from saved games perfectly fine until approximately turn 30-40. Then the game crashes to desktop every time when I try to load from a previous game while still in game.

    Any one share my problem? Any one know a fix?

    Thanks.

    i have 4G of ram, but I doubt that it's the RAM that's the culprit.
