I'm one of the unlucky ones with a Intel GMA950... I figured I'd give it a shot anyway and go through the process... Got all the way up to getting the game patched, went to run it, and got the unsupported video card error... Anything I can do to make this work???
The new Steam release of The Witcher is officially made and supported with Wineskin... Where hobbyists couldn't get it running perfectly, the minor issues were able to be fixed by the makers of the game to build a version that ran in Wineskin just fine. Its possible that could be done for STO as well.
I have downloaded the Wineskin app onto my mac and open the app but when i goto install windows software and select the STO.exe file it says busy for a second then pulls up a choose executable scree where i select the file again but nothing happens. There is also a file that says I have the game on my mac but when I goto open it to download it opens fight but I press agree it opens a download progress bar and says executing pre-installation actions but does nothing, just stays on that screen. Please help with getting this working and downloaded, Hope I made enough sense haha
Hi, I'm having some graphics issues running STO on my 2010 17-inch MacBook Pro, 2.66 GHz i7CPU, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M, 512 MB VRAM, OSX 10.6.8 fully up to date.
Everything runs smooth, but certain graphics eliminates or animations are completely missing. Scanning for anomalies lacks the light flare that points you in the proper direction of the anomaly. In fact scanning anything lacks that animation. During battle, when ships are destroyed they do not catch fire before they explode. They just stop moving then eventually blow up.
I am also experiencing major screen glitches at space dock or other high-traffic areas. Random geometric shapes dance all over the screen. Sometimes it gets so bad it looks like a white or yellow grid (like wireframe) appears everywhere you look. It gets worse when you enable Astrometrics. Wow, what a light show.
I've spent hours messing with the video setting to try to resolve both of these issues. I've even had a few STO Mac friends come over and work over my settings.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Everything else seems to work just great.
