@quagmiremonkey: thanks!

We are still investigating the ghosting issue. In the meantime, I have uploaded a new build to Steam that tells Mac OS it can run the game on the integrated GPU.

You don't need to go to the beta branch for this, it is now enabled for all users.

Please report if it gets rid of "ghosting". If not, please post your ~/Documents/.uoc2/log.txt here.

Cheers!

However, I've not been having a lot of joy with playing it. I know that it's very new on MacOS of course -- but currently, it's essentially unplayable with two big issues: performance and graphical bugs.


Came here to post something very similar. Just bought the game & expansion today after learning that they (finally! :D ) got ported to Mac, but I can't bother going through the tutorial as the performance is terrible. Not at all what I experienced in UoC1, nor what I experience when I install and try the game on W10 in bootcamp. I'm on a 15" MBP w a 2.6 GHz 6-core Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a Radeon Pro 560X. :(

The ghosting is still there, and can still be cured by switching from from fullscreen to window.

I am sorry, I am unable to find the document you requested, nor can I find anything with a similar path. I used the Mac OS Finder "Find" to search "This Mac". I am not an OS expert, but I think this search would reveal any matches.

Sorry this topic fell through the cracks somehow :oops:

Please fire up Terminal, paste the following and hit ENTER:

Code: Select all

cat ~/Documents/.uoc2/log.txt | pbcopy

This will copy the log contents into the clipboard, and you can just paste them (CMD-V) in your reply here.

If unsure of what is Terminal and how to start it, click here.

We have adjusted the default video settings on mac OS to help out with performance. The easiest thing to do is to delete the settings file: ~/Documents/.uoc2/settings.yml

The game will then create a new settings file with the adjusted video settings when it starts up.

We too are puzzled by the performance of the ATI mac driver in this case. In your case with bootcamp, it is literally the same hardware, and it's the same code/shaders on our side. The only differentiator is the driver, and the performance is... not great :x

Anyway, hope the solution above helps out at least a little bit. :)

Cheers!
