The game freezes in a black screen after the initial bit in the In-between.

 

I've tried to upload the player.log file, but the forum software refuses to upload that "type of file".

 

Edit: Here's my player.log file copied to pastebin: https://pastebin.com/sKuxpJ24

Same. The floaty path scene works fine, then the loading icon for the next scene finishes and the cursor changes, but the screen remains black and the game becomes unresponsive and requires force quitting.

I suspect that this is the same bug which prevented character creation in the Backer Beta from running on a Mac. This bug has been known about for months, now. Still not fixed for release. (AGGRAVATION INTENSIFYING)

Same here, running El Capitan on an early 2015 Macbook Pro retina.

Hey all,

 

I'm trying to get Deadfire running on my circa-2015 Macbook Pro and the game crashes during the prologue right after walking down the purple mist trail and getting sucked into the machine. I've cranked all settings to low, ran validation on files and still having issues. Any other Mac users running into issues?

Hey all,

 

Sorry to hear you are having these issue on launch! Can you guys let me know which OS you are running? We have been having troubles with Apple trying to get everything set up, so every bit of info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

-Caleb

Edited to attach my player log which seems to get stuck in a loop at the bottom.

 

10.13.4 here - same problem as reported.

10.13.4 (17E202) as well.

Really glad to hear I am not the only one :)

 

[EDIT] I may not be very representative sample as I do not have good graphics, but hopefully the log file helps.
