    Okay I know this subject has been covered before. I did use the search fonction and found some threads about people having the same problem:

    I beat Frank Horrgian, I leave, I watch the nice cutscene, and then, no more sound, a new image appears every second and then the game crashes and hello desktop.

    I've read answers about reducing the sound acceleration but .. I'm playing F2 on a mac (iMAC OS X 10.5.6) so I have no idea where's the sound acceleration option.

    I tried restarting from another save but at the end the same infamous crash gets me back to my desktop (with all of my saves)

    BTW I am using F2 1.02 official patch no mods were installed.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I don't have a Mac myself so I have no idea if it's what you are looking for, but check out this patch.

    Edit: It looks like that patch has been pulled actually. I wonder if you can get it from somewhere else?

    Turn subtitles off. For some reason the ending slideshow screws up if they're on. I think that will fix the crash-to-desktop as well.

    That IMG article is referring to the 1.02 patch – see this followup article from a few days later: http://www.insidemacgames.com/news/story.php?ArticleID=6420

    Of course, you might want to try killap's unofficial patch, since that fixes a couple hundred more bugs.

    FIXED !!

    Turning subtitles OFF did the trick.
