Update your Vid drivers for either your nvidia or ati card.
Go the the manufacturer's site and download for you correct chipset.

I'm playing fine. Just kinda choppy with low settings.

Macbook pro. i5 w/ Nvidia GT 330m mobile GPU.

I own an 8-core Mac Pro Desktop. I have not upgraded to Lion. I have the basic Nvidia 8600 card and I have not had any problems whatsoever. When you are in bootcamp make sure all of windows is upgraded and that you have downloaded all the service packs or running the game will not happen. I spent quite a bit of time Dling all the updates(It had been a year since I did so, so you can imagine how much fun that was).

One of the other things I did was partition one of my 4 Hard drives to be Windows only.

Otherwise all I can say is that I would check the specs of your laptop on see if it is compatible. One of the main reasons my husband isn't playing on his Macbook is he just doesn't have the resources.

This worked!! Thank you, I had a fresh install and thought all the drivers were good. Only thing is the color when you are looking at the character straight up is out of whack. When you turn him sideways, its show correct color, weird. I wonder if that is an issue with my computer or a bug.

So, I am having the same problem. I also have a MacBookPro and it gave me the same error message. What is it you had to do to get it to work?

go to www.nvidia.com and download drivers for your graphic card.
I presume you have nvidia 320m so download the driver for Geforce 300M series (Notebook). do not download the normal driver, it has to be the Notebook version!

Greetings All,

Please be advised that running the game via Boot Camp is not a supported configuration.
