My dad installed Windows 7 on my iMac today, and it worked just fine, except there was no sound. He got that fixed, but now when I hit Play, I get the message, "Failed to initialize renderer". He tried installing OS X while in Windows, and then updating it, but it didn't work. I tried downloading the latest patch, but it didn't change anything. Could anyone help me out?

For the benefit of others with similar problems getting Oblivion to run under Mac OS, it might be a good idea to post a brief explanation of HOW you solved it. :wink:

All I did was update Windows completely. The reason I was having problems was because I didn't realise there were updates available Windows I hadn't installed.

Probably been a DirectX or Video Driver update, then.
