Choppy game on Mac?

Post by halabund » Thu Jan 09, 2014 2:29 am

I just tried Reus on a Mac and the game is choppy. There's a periodic glitch both in the sound and animation every 1.2 seconds or so (counted 8 in 10 seconds). The glitch is much more noticeable and annoying in the sound.

I'm using OS X 10.9.1 on a 2012 MacBook Pro, GeForce GT 650M. As Macs go, it's a fairly powerful machine, so I assumed it should be able to run the game without problems. I made sure to reboot and close all other programs before starting the game, yet the glitch is still there. It happens only during the game, not in the menu.

Is anyone else playing on Mac? Have you encountered this problem? Is there a solution?

I'm seeing the same problem. Seems the mac port is still in beta, so I'm hoping it'll be cleared up before too long.

Yeah, it is choppy and I can confirm the game runs just fine over BootCamp, so the problem isn't with the hardware. I guess the final product will be just fine! :D

Well, if the same problem exists for everyone, that's good news in a way: it means that eventually it will be fixed! :-) If it were an isolated problem on my computer, I'd be less hopeful.

Same for me on 10.9.1. I have an i7 with 16 GB of memory so it shouldn't be an issue. Here's hoping for a fix soon.

It looks like a new Mac version was posted today on Humble Bundle and solves the choppiness problem.

I've downloaded the new version from Humble Bundle and it changes nothing in my case. It runs exactly like the previous one. The game doesn't crash, but it's still quite slow.

Sadly, the new version posted on the humble page from January 13th still does not fix the issue of the game stuttering.

It seems to be system dependent. The original version was unplayable on my computer because of the stuttering. The version posted on the 9th has fixed stuttering completely for me. The game runs smoothly without problems on my machine (10.9.1) and the stuttering is completely gone. It is a fairly powerful machine though ...

Reus is still unplayable on a Mac mini 2010 (2.4GHz Intel C2D, nVidia 320M, 8 GB RAM, OS X Mavericks 10.9.1) with the version released on January 13th trough Humble Bundle.
