    that's what she said?

    Try and update your screen resolution, maybe it's set too low on the mac itself

    Are you running it under Crossover Games, if so Codeweavers doesn't officially support it unfortunately but you may get some help on their forums.

    Thanks for the info. I checked the Codeweavers and it seems Hitman 2 IS supported, but just isn't working for me :p Slightly annoying! xD

    thats an X server problem... its basically only seeing the normal current resolution and no fullscreen's available, so its basically pasting everything onto the desktop.

    I'd recommend trying out making a wrapper for it with the Wineskin 2.0 Beta.. which has a couple of options to get around problems like that.

    Its not exactly like Crossover cuz it focuses on actually porting games into a Mac .app that runs like its native and not just running the game... but its still Wine, so a lot of the same concepts apply.

    As a disclaimer, yes I make Wineskin, its my hobby... so I know it better than anyone else :)

    Getting any Windows game to run on OSX can be a lot easier discussing it or getting help at the Porting Team forums anyways, since thats what the whole website is about.
