I haven't had any crashes, but basically the same as DraicDreamer. I didn't have any freezing/hangups at first, through midway chapter 3, despite running on High/Medium with a standard early-2013 Mac Pro. But now I can't get past [spoiler] the campaign cutscene. It keeps hanging during the initial campaign convo with the campaign manager. [/spoiler]

 

I saw someone mention something about changing the resolution, but I can't seem to change it to anything other than 1280 x 720. If anyone can help with that, I'd appreciate it!

 

Specs:

Mac OS X Mountain Lion

2.9GHz Intel Core i7

8 GB RAM

 Intel HD Graphics 4000

I've now upgraded to Yosemite, and.... slight change. After the game froze on the loading screen as usual, I waited as long as I could stand (about 5 minutes), was planning to force quit as usual, but then the game crashed to the desktop. Complete with the "application quit unexpectedly" window. So... progress? I'm in the same boat as most of the others in this thread now. :\

Leaving full screen before the first loading screen (after the intro) did the trick for me. Any further loading screens worked like they should (in full screen). I've just left the therapist's room and are on the street.

But before each scene change there is a lag for a second (feels more).
I think they should optimize it a bit considering I'm running a Mac Pro (Late 2013) and have PCIe flash memory and no hdd/sdd. But the scenery is great and running fluid (except the lag above) in 1680x1050 (native size of my screens) in detail mode awesome.

As a long admirer of the series I'd like to contribute to this thread.  I've been struggling with crashes and poor performance with my Mid 2012 Macbook Pro since attempting to play DFC.   I've set my graphics card to discrete using gfxCardStatus and cleared up as much memory as possible using Memory Diag.  This didn't seem to help.  Whenever I'd hit ESC my game would immediately crash to the desktop.  I just tried setting SSAO to Medium (was previously turned off) and suddenly the game is no longer crashing.  I have no idea why but I hope this information can help speed up the optimization of this great series!  Thank you for continuing this series.  It has been a part of my life since I was a kid.

Could you post a little more info on this? Do you get an error message, or does nothing happen?

After patching the game the game runs much better, but still freezes occasionally. In any case it ALWAYS freezes in the transition screen when trying to enter "The Hand that Feeds" building. The balance wheel turns something like 10º clockwise and that's all I get.

I have not seen a patch through Steam here in the US.  Am I missing something?

Are you running Mac or Linux?

Mac OS X Yosemite

To be perfectly honest I'm not sure either if the Mac patch is live yet, though I know the Linux one is.

 

Does anyone here know for certain?

Last time I started the game Steam downloaded an update for Dreamfall Chapters. I suppose it was the patch.

Windowed mode doesn't improve things for me with the crash/hang immediately upon leaving the therapist's office - as soon as I click on the interaction gear with Nela, it hangs, beachball of death, etc.

 

The game is unplayable for me at this point. Both platforms available to me - Windows and Mac OS X - have such serious hangs and UI bugs. 

 

I realize there was a rush to meet a deadline, but the game is currently unplayable.

Same here, odd but i got to play an hour without interuption, got passed the therapist scene yesterday. Everything was perfect but needed to go to bet. Honestly afraid to shut it off, and i was right. Now it crashes again at numerous occassions. Unplayable. Downloaded something on steam with a very weird name but nothing happened.

I have crashing issues, too. I have just arrived to Europolis and am outside near the street vendor and police. Game crashes right there. Here is the crash report and my setup.

OS X Yosemite (10.10)

iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011)

2.7 GHz Intel Core i5

8GB 1333 MHz DDR3

AMD Radeon HD 6770 512 MB

 

Also, I have the visual settings to the lowest setting and anti-aliasing off. Resolution is the highest setting; otherwise it looks a little blurry.
