    New Arrival
  1. Sorry for the delay in responding! Nope, nothing exotic on the computer, no customization of drivers. But it didn't seem to be a problem anyone else was bringing up, so I thought I'd check and see if there was a known solution. Thanks for all the thoughts!
  2. Thanks for the suggestions! The display is just the iMac built in 27" LCD display (no additional monitors connected): Resolution: 2048 x 1152 (note I've picked this and also picked lower resolutions when choosing the window size) Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Graphics chip: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 MB I'm not using Steam - both times, I've downloaded from the Spiderweb Software website. With no other applications running and after freshly restarting, I made it a smidge further (talked to the prince, tried to open the chest *flicker, flicker*). Restart again, having saved this time before opening the door north out of the hallway and loading saved game - froze on opening the door to the throne room and having the text pop up. It seems like opening things is my downfall. I have Avadon 1 and 2 on this computer and Avernum 1's demo; they don't show the same issues after some testing.
  3. I have downloaded Queen's Wish Demo twice now - v 1.0.1 - on a 2012 iMac running OS 10.11.6. My computer appears to well exceed all the minimum requirements listed for the game. I have not made it past the hall outside the initial bedroom scene without the game starting to flicker and freeze. The mouse freezes in the game window and closing the game requires a force quit every time. The flicker and freeze has happened as early as the character setup screen (once) and as late as after checking the locked doors in the hallway and trying to proceed north (once). Typically, the doors out of the bedroom are the problem point, so I've only stepped into the hallway three times in eleven tries. Playing in a window vs not doesn't seem to have an effect; I haven't been able to determine that the graphics settings have any effect. When it froze on the character setup screen, the background music kept playing even though the mouse was completely frozen in the game window. I can access the menu bar when the game is frozen, but no game-related menu commands seem to have any effect (i.e. "quit"). Does the game actually run on MacOS 10.11? I'm reluctant to buy the full game if it's not going to work.
