    My Mac freezes when starting Myst V version 1.0. I used the Myst V Mac Installer here from the board. Who can help me further?

    What model Mac do you have, and what version of the Mac OS are you running?

    Sorry, no experience here with either the Intel Mac or a Mac OS beyond 10.4.11. Others may no doubt help.

    Hi AdiumX. Haven't had your problem, but I can at least give you some things to consider, assuming you haven't already solved it!

    Which version of 10.6 are you running?
    Myst V has performed flawlessly for me on all versions of 10.6 from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8.

    Have you installed Rosetta? Without it, Myst V won't start (nor will any other PowerPC-only program you have installed)!

    OS X 10.6 doesn't install Rosetta by default. However, if 10.6 is functioning properly, it should prompt you to install Rosetta when you try to launch a PowerPC-only program, if it isn't installed already.

    Assuming it is installed, here's a couple of simple tests you can try.
    Open your home/Library/Application Support folder and delete the Myst V folder located there, then try relaunching the game.
    If unsuccessful, log in as a different user and try launching the game from there (you may need to reinstall Myst V to perform this test).

    If neither of these suggestions help you, then you're looking at a potential Mac OS X reinstall (particularly if you're running 10.6.7, or have updated to 10.6.8 from 10.6.7).

    By the way, whenever your Mac misbehaves, it's always a good idea to restart it before you try anything else!
    Good luck!
