Black Screen on Startup - Mac
I got an email saying Ultratron had been released and, being a Fan of Titans, went out and bought it right away.

DL'd the game just fine, but on startup all I get is a black screen. I mash some buttons and get sound, but never display. Checking out the support page they said this is likely due to older OpenGL graphics cards and updating my OS -might- solve the problem.

Has anybody else experianced this? What are the odds that grabbing the lastest OS will change anything?

It definitely works on 10.7, I can say that for sure. However most people who have problems on 10.6.8 don't even get as far as a black screen, so yours is a bit of a new one...

Can you pastebin the output of the Console when you run the game up?

Sorry it's been a few days, I'm away for long stretches due to work.

I'll check it out.

Here's the pastbin. http://pastebin.com/4fgcMFWb

After the game updated, it launched the same as before. I move the mouse around and get sound from what is likely the menu options being highlighted, but no display. Mash buttons, in game music, still no display. *Shrug*

Hm, no errors reported from the game. Try disabling Steam community/overlay for the game.

Had a go at it. http://pastebin.com/MCnjYRgK

Identical behavior to the previous time, although I think I see two errors in the console that I don't remember last time. Thanks for having a look at it. In the meantime, I've grabbed Droid Assault and that's working fine.

Oh - if DA is working fine and UT isn't... that's quite strange because they use identical code. Wonder whether it just might be worth biting the bullet and upgrading to 10.7 (or 10.8 for that matter)
