Hi all,


I recently bought this on GOG and installed it.  When I try to start it, a "Verifying Pillars of Eternity" window pops up, stays for a minute or so and then disappears. The game doesn't load at all.  I've deleted, re-downloaded and restarted but the problem persists.


I've found some stray references to it being a problem associated with the Retina screen, but it's unclear whether a workaround exists.  Would be very keen to get a fix.


My computer has the following specs:


Macbook Pro, Retina 15", late 2013

Processor  2.3 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory  16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphics  Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB

Software  OS X 10.9.5 (13F1134)


Any help much appreciated.  Many thanks!

Hello everyone,


Welcome to the forums! Thanks for joining us. Try downloading GOG Galaxy and install the game from there and see if that fixes your issue.


Thank you for your support.
