I'd like to start with the basics:

1. What Operating System are you using (Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac)?
2. What video card are you using and are the drivers up to date?
3. When you say, "it takes me back to where i cant open it", what do you mean? Try to describe where it takes you.

We want to help. I know (from personal experience) that it can sometimes be confusing. Please help us to help you.

OK, we have a particular problem with the Mac distribution - we don't have any Mac programmers. The result is that we have to rely on experienced Mac users to come in and compile the program to run on Mac. One suggestion that's been made by one of our regulars is to use the 2.3 or 2.4 release, rather than the current one. Not being a Mac user, myself, I can't tell you how they will work out for you. I will say, from personal experience (limited as it is, I'm rather new to Sandbox, myself) that even the 2.3 release can be fun to work with. Good luck, and have fun with it.

And a video card is for games, if you have a better 1, games will lagg less, if you have a bad card, some games wouldn't even work on your pc
