Help -Update/Episode 3 breaks TWD [MAC]

posted by CB123 on - last edited - Viewed by 551 users
The game is unusable for me too.

I have noticed the following bugs:-
  • On loading TWD on Mac OS X, it hangs.
  • Switching to a window, I can see something is downloading something using a network monitor
  • After 20 minutes, it eventually lets me in
  • Trying to download Episode 3 hangs at 99.5%
  • Switching between full screen and window often crashes TWD
  • Quitting the game when in window mode crashes the game
Telltale support. Please can you address this asap or even respond.

UPDATE:-

I have found a fix of sorts! Tested successfully by four folks.

What you need is copy the following two directories from a working machine, or a copy from a friend.

/Users/"your user name"/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFs/Data/WalkingDead103

and

/Users/"Your user name"/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFs/Meta


Copy these two directories onto your own machine with the EP3 problem. Make sure you don't overwrite any other folders.

EP3 then works.

    This isn't an error but it's downloading a program update without any notification.

    I've got the exact same problems, but the game 'crashes' in fullscreen mode as well when I quit the game. It's not really a crash as I wanted to quit the game anyway, but it's just weird I get a error notice after quitting.
  • Mine crashes in full screen while trying to download Episode 3 :(
    99.5% at other percentages.
  • Does anyone have a working ep3 on the Mac?
    I've tried uninstalling, wiping the settings and files, clean re-install. :(
  • Possible solution. It worked for me! Big thanks to AlfredoSanchez
    Let us all know how you get on guys and girls! :)
    ;)

    This is what solved it for me:

    It went into graphic settings and turned everything to low or off (anti-aliasing, the screen resolution, shadow, etc.). I also made it full screen (it wasn't before).

    Suddenly the download now comes in at a phenomenal speed, and completed at 100% in no time.

    Try it yourself. I hope it works for you."
  • Glad this worked for you, but its not working for me. I seem to recall this was offered as a solution for some for Episode 2 problems with limited success.
  • Blackvulcan3: Have you tried starting it up then walking away for 15-20 minutes? That's what finally worked for me. Otherwise there is no Main Menu.
  • Yeah, I found that out early on about the connecting issue, I remembered a simialr thing from episode 2. I'm stuck downloading at 99.50%.

    Did you set every graphics setting to it's lowest including resolution set to 640 by 480?
    What model of Mac do you have and which OS x?
  • Make sure you're in full screen mode as well during the ep3 download.
  • Thanks CB123, this solution was thrown around for episode 2. I've tried it on episode 3 about 8 times now, either selecting the download from within the game or from the download content selection from the main menu.

    I have a 27 inch mid 2010 imac 2.93ghz i7 with 8gb ram and 1gb video running 10.7.4.
