Myself as well. We Are Not Alone.

Have either of you filed a ticket yet with either Steam or the developer? I've just checked in here first so far, but we may all have the same issue.

Here's what I get after the crash in my console log:

2014-04-08 2:47:55.000 PM kernel[0]: process steam[1348] caught causing excessive wakeups. Observed wakeups rate (per sec): 409; Maximum permitted wakeups rate (per sec): 150; Observation period: 300 seconds; Task lifetime number of wakeups: 45001
2014-04-08 2:47:55.464 PM ReportCrash[1679]: Invoking spindump for pid=1348 wakeups_rate=409 duration=111 because of excessive wakeups

note: PID 1348 in that error may have been Duke Manhattan's PID before it quit out.

I submitted an email to the developer last week but haven't heard anything back yet.

Yeah I'll come back here if I find out anything. If others are reading this thread and have the same issue, there's no need for you to post in this thread to get up dates -- just click the Subscribe To Thread (or similar wording) button in the top upper-right of this entire message thread.

I know how to turn on the duke nukem. You have to click the right mouse button on the Duke Nukem select properties then local files. Then select browse local files. Click on the icon Duke nukem and change the renderer DirectX to OpenGL and click Play :)

Oh man I can see why the crash is happening. Sounds like bad DirectX tanslation through WINE (which it's running in since it wasn't ported to OSX) and OpenGL likely works better as that's what OSX uses natively.

But I'm not able to get to the same Settings screen you are.

Once you're looking at the "Duke Nukem Manhattan Project" listed in Finder, how do you get to the Settings screen? Is it a double-click to run it and then it presents the options? My copy of Duke Nukem just sits in my Dock (even though it's running) and doesn't run the game. Actually now that I've run it once and had to Force Quit it it won't run again until I reboot my computer. :( (just shows in the Dock and then quickly pops away)

Oh hey, if anyone finds this thread again in the future, the message above left by Marcinx199 above has the right idea, but I had to take it a step further: I had to update the WINE wrapper used to get Duke Manhattan running.

You may need to go to winehq.com and install the currenct version of WINE (or winewrapper) first.

Then follow Marcinx199's steps to browse the local files, but you'll want to run "Wineskin" inside Finder. Once it runs, click on Advanced, then click the Tools tab, and under Wrapper Tools section of the screen click the Update Wrapper button.

Until I did the steps above I couldn't even run Duke Manhattan and get the configuration screen where I could select OpenGL instead of DirectX.
