I'm new to macs and just got me a new macbook (black) for home use.

I kind of assumed all new macs would run EVE but i'm getting thrown back to the desktop on character selection screen. Even if i don't move the mouse. The character portraits don't get shown which lead me to think maybe my mac doesn't have a compatible graphics card?

i have a macbook ( graphic card is intel gma950 ) and the game works correctly .

now im running it under leopard and its ok, i had only to disable in-game voice and playing with video settings, and at 1280*800 full screen the game works.

i mean on macbook you can use the mac client to stay in station , controlling the market, chatting with friends, etc...

the max you can do on mackbook it is some mining , due to the low fps in open space .

That would be fine as i'm just looking to change skills/chat while on the sofa. Hate sitting on the 'main' pc if i've got no intention of undocking.

Maybe i should submit a bug report then with the system specs and hope for the best. I was thinking it might a Leopard issue as a lot of things seem to have worked on Tiger that aren't working now..

Thanks for the answer.

Even though some people are not experiencing any issues with the Macbook using the intel gma950 graphics card, the card is not supported as it doesn't meet the minimum specs.

Thanks for the official answer, I'll not bother trying to figure this out anymore then.
