Game Never Opens

I realize I'm using a strange set-up, and it's been theorized that my problem stems from there, but here goes: When I open the game, it prepares to launch in Steam, then opens. The box shows up in the center of my main monitor, and then seems to freeze and become unresponsive. I've tried leaving it for over an hour and the game still never seems to actually start.

Specs:
MacPro (not MacbookPro)
OSX 10.5.8
2 Quad-core 3Ghz Intel Xeon processors
2 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT PCIe cards running 2 monitors each (one runs 2 1440x900 and the other runs a 1920x1200 [main monitor] and a 1680x1050)
Plenty free Memory and RAM

just for a test to see if it could be causing the issue. Could you see if killing floor runs with only 1 monitor connected, if its not too much of a hassle?

The fix for pc computers when the launch box shows and nothing happens is generally updating drivers. For what its worth.

I tried unplugging all but one monitor to no avail. And I've run a software update on my mac, but also no difference in results. Really not sure what the trouble is, I'm gonna try to troubleshoot more but I have no idea what's wrong.

Hi, Paeregrine

Could You probably attach or post the KF log file here, which is located in ~/Library/Application Support/Killing Floor/System/ ?

Right now i've got no clue what could be causing Your problem (besides that KF on 10.5.8 seems to be quite an issue for some users, here), but a log could probably tell more :)
Another approach could be launching KF standalone in Terminal with

Code:
./Documents/Steam Content/common/killingfloor/Killing Floor.app/Contents/MacOS/Killing Floor
and post the Terminal output here.

greetz,
gitano
