I downloaded and played on my Mac, but when I tried to play again
I could not find the button to click on to play the game without re-loading the software.
I can log in, but clicking on the picture just brings me to the text page "what is protein folding".
Thanks for your help.

On a Mac powerbook, OS 10.6.8, with screen resolution set to 1152 x 720, the main menu (just the part that says "Actions, Undo, Menu") is not visible. Since this was my first look at Foldit, I had no idea there was a menu there. When the "Undo" menu pops up during the tutorials, there is no way to get rid of it except to quit FoldIt. The folks on Chat were befuddled by my questions - apparently the picture I sent them showed the menu very clearly. Works fine at resolution 1024 x 768, but you should really mention that prominently.

Otherwise, very slick interface!

The game is played on your mac.

The first time, you had to download it from the foldit site. Afterward, you have to start the game like any other program installed on your machine.

Hope this help.
