Hi All,
i have a problem, but i'm new to playonmac, maybe i'm doing something wrong (surely)...
I installed The Witcher 2 (from DVD) with PlayOnMac. No Problem during installation.
Then i Installed the 1.35 patch for the game, always with playonmac. No Problem during installation.

BUT when i run the game i see only a black screen, and nothing happens...
I have tried to launch "The Witcher 2: configuration" to try different visual option (you know..deactivating antialiasing, small resolution etc etc...) but nothing change.

I have a MacBookPro with OSX Lion and an AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB graphic. The PlayOnMac version is 4.0.14, the WINE version is 1.3.28.

Someone with the same problem? Black screen means something special? Some common mistake?

Thank You for your attention :D

Try to go to Configure -> Wine -> Configure wine -> Display

Then, change windows manager settings (Allow to control if it's disallowed, or disallow if it's allowed)

Also, try to set up a virtual desktop
