Krater Mac Issues: Read me!
Hello everyone,

As you know, there have been a number of issues with the Mac version of Krater that we released last week. We've recieved a lot of crashlogs and reports, and believe we know the cause of some of these problems. However, we have issues that may take longer to fix than we would've hoped for.

There are driver incompatabilities that we weren't prepared for which is not at all simple to fix. We're a small team working on a lot of things, and unfortunately we cannot promise that the Mac version will be fixed for everyone. We're looking at making general fixes that should solve the crashes for most of our players though. So hopefully you'll be able to play soon.

To help us identify the issues, please e-mail your crashlogs to: liam.oneill@fatshark.se
With the topic "Krater Mac Crash".

You can find your crashlogs in: ~/Library/Application Support/Fatshark/Krater/console_logs/

We of course understand that you have purchased a product and expect it to be working, so if you are unable to start the game, please contact me and I'll do what I can to fix the problem for you. Be it through a patch or a refund.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,
Fatshark.

Thanks for the heads up. It still runs on windows and I will be keeping my copy. I hope it will end up working for me on my mac side but if not I will boot over to play it. It is an awesome game.

I'm using OSX 10.6.8. The game does not start up at all. When I click 'Play' in Steam, a black window opens and then self-quits after 3 seconds.

Good to see you guys working on this and I am sure we all understand how small indie develpers are under pressure. The issue for me is still to do with whether Krater will eventually run under OSX 10.6.8 as originally advertised or whether it is now only a 10.7+ release in which case those who bought it under the original spec description have been let down.

Good luck with the patch!

Sorry can't get to my crash logs... I shuts down almost immediately after meeting the first character in the game. I'm running 10.8.2

i just sent you my log - it seems to be shader related. that little money is not an issue - i'm waiting for a possible fix and if there will not be one, then let's talk about a refund!
thanks for doing this and keeping up with information - it sure is a tricky business!
i'm on 10.6.8 (imac 12,2)

the log is immediately created when you start the app - are you sure you are looking in your homefolder's (username) library?

So is this ever going to run on 10.6.8. or not? It's been what, 2 weeks since i got this and still not able to play. Is someone from fatshark going to answer this question which has been asked by multiple people somewhere or am i just being stupid and not seeing it? Seeing as no specs were posted when it originally came out to suggest it wouldn't run on 10.6.8 it's a bit of a ♥♥♥♥take really. Again not the money, the principle and the fact i want to play the ♥♥♥♥ing game! Doesn't matter if you are a big or a small company, releasing a game that obviously doesn't work for a large ammount of paying customers is a joke.

It would be nice to just give us the date of a patch release. Don't worry i can wait.

I've given up and got a refund from Steam. A great shame.
