Hi,
When you say downloaded do you mean from the Internet? or do you have the installer disk?

Let me know,

I bought the disk from a mac store
Expert:  Mike replied 8 years ago.
OK.

Can you go to the Library folder in your Home Folder and then open Preferences Folder.

In there look for and trash the Lionhead Studios folder.

Close the windows and then try to launch Fable again.

Let me know,

in the problem report it says that thread 0 crashed if that helps
Expert:  Mike replied 8 years ago.
It sounds almost like you got a bum installer.

Have you contacted Feral Interactive about this?

I do not know anything else about this game, so my first thought now is to contact Support, open a ticket with them and make sure to give good details on your configuration. There must be something they missed when testing this and you have that certain something.

Lucky you.

Let me know what comes of this because I was going to get this game for Christmas and now will wait to see what is up with this issue.

Ok, after 2 days of messing around and then talking to you it finally works. I erased the preferance file like you said. but then I erased the game and reinstalled it and now it works great. Hope this helps in the future.
Expert:  Mike replied 8 years ago.
Ok. So maybe the prefs file was bad from the beginning and then the game messed up. So removing the prefs and re-installing the game cleaned it up.

Good call.
Now I can go get it and play some myself.
