Game Crashes iMac 27 In Middle of Turn

Unread postby gmartin78 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:35 pm

Just picked up playing again UOC while taking a break for a few months. Playing Red Turn Campaign, To The Dniester Scenario. Everything seems to working ok, then there is high pitch 'plink" sound, then game freezes, and after about 10 second the iMac shuts down. The Mac will try to reboot and then gets stuck on log in screen. Not a very nice crash at all.

I'm running a late 2015 iMac 27 Retina 5K, 3.3 Ghz Intel Core i5, with 16mb of ram. Game is on Steam. I did get a message on loading the game that it needs to be updated to run properly on Apple IOS.

Game used to be rock solid. Now blows up unpredictably and crashes my whole system.

I run UoC successfully on a 13-inch MacBook Air, 2015, 8GB RAM, running OSX 10.9.5. I run it out of Steam.

That's probably not hugely helpful, just thought I'd let you know there is no fundamental problem with Mac compatibility.

Are you certain the UoC version is fully updated on Steam? Have you done the "verify integrity of game files" check in Steam?
