WTF is going on?
I'm using the Mac OS X 3.9 CVS version, using a Lime Green iMac (Y'Know, the tray-loading type?) and Whenever I launch Stepmania, It'll do it's video fade thingie, the screen will try different screen modes, and fade back out, and then it repeats itself a few more times until giving up and saying something about "could not draw OpenGL Pixels" or something.....

Does your video card support OpenGL? Do you have OpenGL? What kind of video card do you have?

*Pulls up System Profiler*
Yep, OpenGL Version 184.108.40.206.0
ATI RagePro_C, 6MB
Keep in mind I'm on a Mac. :D

I've never really known a Macintosh to work with StepMania.

I quote the Error message:
"There was an error while initializing your video card
PLEASE DO NOT FILE THIS ERROR AS A BUG!
Video Driver: OpenGL
SetVideoMode failed: Failed creating OpenGL pixel format"

I think that it's you video card...It might not support OpenGL, but I'm not 100% sure.
-EDIT- ATI RagePro_C, 6MB That Video Card might not be good enough to support it
you need to update Opengl.

0_o Okay. Thanks.
Finally! I can play DDR! Or at least a simulation of it...
I got 2nd,3rd, and 6th Mix loaded, plus VGmix 1 and 3.
This had better work...
EDIT: But where can I find an updated version of OpenGL? :?:
Try updating your drivers, that usually does it.
Or try www.opengl.org
My god, why does apple make this so hard? I cant even find them myself, i keep seeing conflicting reports on what to download.
in conclusion, mac is ga.y get something else
