left for dead frozen on start screen. (mac)
i have a macbook pro 2012 retina, whenever i try to load left for dead the screen stays frozen, until i move to the dashboard then the background and curser start moving.

Anyone have ideas about this?

Having this same issue. Mac Book Pro Retina as well. It seems like the game is stuck on the next frame every time I go back and forth to L4D from the desktop or another application

EXACT same problem that I'm having!
The game is unplayable. How can we get this fixed?

I found that it's a problem with the discrete graphics card (Nvidia GT 650M).
If you can make sure that your mac only uses the integrated graphics card (Intel 4000), then it will work.
Valve should really fix this though.

It freezes for me too, but if I click the lighting or sound button it gives me a small square of the game

I think I'll ask for a refund

I use gfxCardStatus
It's an app, search it on google, it's free.
