Reinstall is the best and shortest troublshooting route for this game. Save your preferences from the '/Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/wwiiol/. Best thing to do is copy it to your desktop. Delete all files and folders labled 'Playnet', 'Playgate', or 'wwiiol' (remember to NOT delete the 'wwiiol' prefs folder from where you stashed it), then empty the trashcan (remember this step... :) ), close any browsers, and reinstall from the download. You did have the full download on disk somewhere, right? Drop the back-ed up 'wwiiol' prefs folder back in the same dir above.

Anyhow, if this doesn't work, then you start troubleshooting other things, like software running in the background, hardware issues, etc.

One issue I found during the beta was that my settings had to be video settings had to be set to millions of colors or I would have the symptoms you describe. Also you can command-tab to get to the finder if you wait about 1-2 minutes after you start (your time may vary). I believe the config app defaults to thousands of colors for some reason so I would check this before deleting and downloading wwiionline.

Hope this helps.
