Stuck on the "connecting" title screen.

posted by acemasterke on - Viewed by 1.5K users

I've just bought the game through Steam for Mac OS and every time I click the start button the "connecting" icon comes up and it just stays there. I have not been able to get past the title screen. What is wrong here? I have a new Mac Mini and I'm running Mavericks.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. Below are a few possible solutions:

    1) Restart your computer

    2) Play the game with your computer disconnected from the internet

    3) If your Mac has multiple graphics cards, go to your system preference and click on ‘energy saver’. Uncheck ‘Automatic Graphics Switching’ and this will make sure your Mac is using your more powerful graphics card.

    4) Verify your cache if you purchased through Steam (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335)

    5) Try playing the game with no other programs running in the background

    6) Reinstall the game

    If none of these help, please read this Sticky on how to run our Support Tool, and follow the steps to run the tool, and reply here with the download link copied and pasted into a reply. You can find the Sticky here:

    • I'm still having this problem. The game works when I disable the internet, but that's a workaround, not a fix. Please fix this issue.

        If you are experiencing this issue when you are connected to the internet, can you please clarify if you are playing the Steam version, or the Telltale Games version of the game downloaded from this website? Also, are you playing the PC or Mac version of the game?

  • I am experience the same issue. I purchased my copy through steam a while ago, but didn't start playing it until recently. I had just finished up episode 2 last night with no issues. Today it won't connect. I have the game installed on both my desktop and laptop and I am experience the issue on both machines.
