Metro for my Mac has serious graphics problems (please help)
I'm trying to play the game on my MacBook Pro, and upon booting up the menu all I can see is a blank white screen with the sound effects ticking away in the background. Does anybody know how I can fix this?

Whoa. Anybody else with this problem? It's becoming an epidemic. Where can we get support for this?

I'm having the same issue. I updated my software, tried the various launch options they suggest in the support area, to no avail. I actually fumbled my way into the game (I could barely see what was on the screen) and tried different settings on the internal video quality slider that's in the game. Nothing worked. HELP!

Macbook Pro, don't know my video card. Purchased in 2011.

You've probably got a Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB internal card, which is standard on a 2011 MacBook Pro. If you want to find out, click the apple icon in the upper-left corner and then select "About This Mac". That should tell you whatever you need to know.

Apple is your problem. Their computers don't run games as well as Windows. Sorry

...Then why would the developer port the game to UNIX if the computer can't run it? I don't think the hardware is the problem, unless we're talking graphics cards. It could be that the port is poorly optimized.

My problem is solved with a new PC graphic card (but it's a Mac Pro).

That's what I was afraid of.

So is there anyway to fix it without a new graphics card?

8800GT for a game like this immediately set off alarm bells. thats an ancient card, id be shocked if its playable.

I've got an HD 3000. It runs Fallout 3, Mass Effect, and TES V just fine. Not sure why it's having a problem with Metro.

Ive got a friend who runs this game with HD2000, but it has to be in Dx9 mode(enabled from user.cfg) and some pretty low settings. From what he says, its playable.
If i had to guess as to the cause of the problem i would say its the game, i cant even get it to launch correctly.
