i have a 1 year old mac book pro running paralells 7.0/windows 7.0....unable to get by the splash screen and play the game.

have tried the hot fix to no avail.

am a longtime matrix guy, but if i can't play the game i'd like my money back.

not using boot camp, just running windows on paralells 7.0

other matrix games, like gary grigsbys war in the east work just fine.

help!

Are you hearing the intro music at the splash screen? If not, there may be some issue with your windows emulation and sound/media player.

I wanted to rule out a sound related bug I read about with some Mac folks on the Command forum. Sounds like the game cannot read the screen size parameters properly. I'd give Queeg's solution a shot.
