Alright, let me say I'm really enjoying this beta.
I play STO on 2 Macs (when I'm not using my home PC) and up to yesterday I've been using Parallels Desktop to run it under a Windows emulation. It was far from good, but steady and stable.
Now I run it "native" on a 2011 iMac, Intel i5 2.5 Ghz, 8 Gb of ram, Radeon HD 6750M and OSX 10.7 Lion, and it's rolling very very good!
I switched most of the eye candies to Low in order to obtain more FPS, but the game works just great and it really looks good for being on such a system.
I have a near identical system but with Mavericks and it crashes every game... maybe this is a Mavericks issue causing the crashes
I've been running the beta for awhile now, but yesterday was the first time I ran into any (serious) problems.
I had to hard reboot my MPB 3 times due to it just locking up. Twice it was on map changes in the Dyson Sphere and once I was in the middle of a battle, the graphics got REALLY intense and everything just stopped.
The client looks great and until yesterday I haven't had any issues. Looking forward to it getting out of Beta.
Okay, so I got the game set up this morning and everything was going well aside from frequent crashes. I didn't think much of it, as my mac has this issue with a few games, and it was able to boot back up fairly easily.
However, upon completing the "Desperate Measures" portion, it crashed while trying to get to the Earth Spacedock, and now, it get to the ESD loading screen before crashing and giving the following message:
Played my Romulan for a while with no problems. Got to the Nimbus storyline and the game crashes ever 5-10 minutes. I have changed graphics settings from the top to the bottom so it is not my computer that is causing the crash and rather a bug in the game.
I do not seem to be able to play sot on my mac even though everything is according to the minimum system requirements. It also says that "A file was locked that could not be open for writing." What should I do?
