MAC Version

[Post New]by youreyes13 on May 22, 14 12:31 PM
The game started out smoothly and then the cursor became really delayed/ jerky to the point where playing is nearly impossible. I went ahead and upgraded to OS Mavericks a few weeks ago, so I know I have the latest video settings. Anyone else have this problem? So odd it started out fine.

Yes, I'm having the same problem in the demo. I closed the game and then opened it again, which worked for about 5 minutes, but I'm on the 4th try now and looked to see if this were a common problem. I won't be buying the game anyway since it's pretty hoky and old hat.

Yes, I am having the same problem with my cursor. I also had the same problem in another game recently. I don't think it's my MAC since everything is up-to-date. Any suggestions?

I have Maverick as well and the cursor is jerky and freezing. I disabled the custom cursor and that made it worse. There's no way to turn off special effects to see if that helps. I'm not purchasing because of this.

I can only play for maybe 10-15 mins before it starts happening and then I have to restart or give it a break. My MBP gets really hot too...I wonder if that has anything to do with the jerky movement?

I'm having the same problems too. I have a MacBook Pro with OSX10.6.8. It does't seem to make any difference as to the OSX version since they all seem to have the same problem.

Hi Tilly,

I just upgraded from OS 10.6.8 to Mavericks a few weeks ago, so it's nice to know that our systems aren't to blame and it's the game, because I don't have problems with most games.

Same problem here with my Macbook Pro. I won't purchase this game either. Too bad because I enjoyed playing until the cursor went all wonky.

I keep running into so called "new" releases and recently started looking at the dates on the review and this is one that has old dates on the reviews. I am starting to think that these are old PC games that they are claiming as new since they just got MAC development.... not going to buy

l'm having a problem in the cellar with the crate. I can't put the chili powder, garlic, red wine or thistle on the crate. Any one else have this problem and how did you fix it?

I couldn't be more disappointed in this game on the Mac. I too have the cursor issue and it's BAD. I can only play for about 5 or 6 minutes before it gets to be impossible to play. I have to quit and restart the game, then play for a few minutes and do it all over again.

This is on a top-end MacBook Pro with everything up to date. It's been weeks since this issue was first pointed out and nothing has been done or even been responded to. This is not the experience I expect when I've been a Game Club member for 5 years! The Mac users of this game should be given a refund or a game credit.

Ditto on the cursor. It's incredibly frustrating to have to stop and start the game every five minutes. I'm really disappointed as I was enjoying the game a lot to this point.

It's driving me batty that I can't lock my inventory to open. I'm still in demo mode so that might be part of the problem.
