What version are you using and is there any useful information in your Console when the game crashes? Also, what type of mac are you using?

I'm going to need more information.
So you are using version 1.2.451 with RFmod 4.15 from the link in the Mac FAQ thread? Also, which GH3 theme are you using? Can you provide a link to the thread?
Does it freeze on any particular songs? Or does it freeze after playing a bunch of songs?

You might also want to try out a different version of FoF. FoFiX works well. FoF 1.3.110/Bmod also works pretty well on a Mac.

Only thing I can think of is you may be using a version of FoF built on Python2.4 which has a memory leak. You should be using any version of FoF built on Python2.5 or Python2.6 to get rid of that memory leak.
But, if you are using any of the versions of FoF that I put together, then this wouldn't be your problem. I don't know what else it could be. When I get some time, I'll try playing a bunch of songs using the RF-mod 4 version that I put together and see if it freezes.

FoFiX is a fork of FoF: http://fofix.googlecode.com/
A lot of new features have been added compared to the original FoF. It's also built using Python2.5 or Python2.6. You can download it from my signature for the latest stable release. You can also see the latest beta releases on the fofix googlecode site. I would recommend the latest stable release for now.
