Running the game on lower-end macOS devices
[This information is useful but outdated! Currently there is a resolution dialog on the latest build of the game]
Hello macOS players!
Some of you might be trying to run the game on your macOS devices, but find it runs at a very low frame-rates.
This is because by default the game is trying to run full-screen on your (likely) retina display. That means the game will try to run at full retina resolution, and your computer's graphics card cannot handle the graphics workload that our game requires at those resolutions.
We currently don't have a way to change the game's resolution in-game. So for now, please follow these steps to lower the resolution that the game will run on by executing the game with the -screen-width and -screen-height command line arguments:
- Open a Finder window where the Interminal.app is
This will be either where you uncompressed the interminal-mac.zip file you downloaded or, if you are using the itch app, you can click the "Show local files" button on the game's page.
- Right click on the Interminal.app and choose "New Terminal at Folder"
This will open a terminal window inside the Interminal.app
- Execute the game from the terminal by typing the following:
./Contents/MacOS/Interminal -screen-width 1280 -screen-height 720You can change the numbers to match your wanted resolution. Note that the game will only run at these resolutions if your screen supports them.
Once you have done this once, your game will remember that resolution choice and next time you won't have to do this process again, unless you want to change again to another resolution.
For all the command line arguments you can use, please check Unity Standalone Player command line arguments at the bottom of this page
Thanks for playing the game and we hope you can enjoy it!
