MacOs - Black screen on launch

posted by marcellomanso on - last edited - Viewed by 611 users
Well, I have the same issue since last december or january, I believe.
I downloaded the game from this very site, installed it and start playing. Everything was fine until the last chapter, when I started getting this black screen when I launch the game.

I got so frustrated because I loved the game but I never had a chance to see the end of the story. I ended up deleting it, so my saves are gone, anyway.

Well, months have passed and now I got this e-mail inviting me to play 400 days. I wanted to give it a try and downloaded and reinstalled the game, but got the same problems. It sucks because I don't have a choice otherwise restarting my mac.

I know there are a lot of topics like that, but I tried some solutions and nothing worked so far.

Anything I can do?

    The game is silently downloading patches at startup. Depending on your connection speed that can take a while.

    Also your old save files are still there, but the prefs.prop looks broken, rendering them inaccessible and possibly preventing the game from starting properly.
    Please delete the prefs.prop and all .save files from
    /Users/marcellomanso/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead
  • It worked. Thanks!
