Hi, I am having trouble running spore on my macbook, i am able to play somewhat but i cant seem to view the creature creations part, at certain points the screen is black where it should show color. since this only happens in certain points of the game i am curious if this is fixable with a driver update(where i could get this driver for a intel GMA 950 for mac im not sure) now i know that on the box it says that the game only supports the x1300 intel gpu, but the game runs already on the 950 more-so than not. if someone could help me i would greatly appreciate a link to possibly update graphics drivers if there are any, or if someone knows of a fix for the game spore (note that i have heard of a fix for the mac mini and the game works fine on windows with an intel 950.) just macbook users with a 950 are sitting in the dust. help plz.

    There's nothing you can do. There are no updated or other drivers you can use. The game states it is not compatible with the GMA950 chipset.

    I just got an update for my trial edition of the Spore Creature Creator. Previously i wasnt able to run it on my Intel GMA 950 MacBook. Now it runs perfectly after the update was installed. There might be hope for an update to the full game that will allow compatibility with the 950 for the creature creation part.

    There is a new update that came out today that makes the creature creator part work on gma 950, although they are still not supported, but it works! =)

    How well does the actual game play with the latest patch? I've got it running just fine under Windows, but if I can run it under OS X the same, I'll throw Windows out the window.
