I am not a tech expert, but when I load up FM on my Macbook Pro, it very quickly becomes very loud and very hot. It is unplayable due to the noise and I have to shut it down very quickly.

The Macbook is only a day old, so I should hope it could handle FM. Only had three leagues turned on too. Any ideas? Has anyone experienced this and know a way around it?
Yep, had the same problem before.

The solution : Preferences - Interface - Rendering mode. Change GPU assisted to Software. The animations will be slightly different, but the Mac don't make so much noise.
