  • Right-click and select Properties.
  • Go to the BETAS tab.
  • Enter the following Beta access code: eureka329048

Hi guys... just checking this out now... I've already noticed though that the maximum resolution for my MacBook Pro retina is only 1440 x 900. Feels a bit blurry compared to playing in 1920x1400 in boot camp. Is there a way to change this?

I got the game to test it on a mac. I tried to play the game. I got to the main screen. I clicked to load a new game. It said that the game crashed and to report it. So, I did. The game closed after reporting. So, I tried to play it again. The same thing occurred. I cannot play the game, unfortunately due to this. 

I understand this is in beta and the game is new to a mac format.  I'll keep you posted if anything else occurs on the mac version. 

Thank you for making this available to Mac users

Today I bought this game, because I kind of like its gameplay style, it is basically a visual operating system building game :D (maybe thats why people's bases get eaten by blackholes aka deadlocks)

Also, since I got the DST gift long time ago from klei because of purchasing DS, I wanted to show some support.

Only problem is there's no linux version, so I'll have go to my laptop for playing it.

So please do a linux version, I'd be happy to test it.

@mf99k: Could you try submitting a crash report using the in-game dialog, and let us know approximately what time you did so?

ONI crash.rtf

The game itself didn't give me any error messages or log.txts, so this is the log from the mac "Oxygen Not Included has quit unexpectedly" window.

I did this just now, so about 1:15 pm pacific time

the game window literally just vanishes when it tries to load the character screen.

@Treecenubm: Which screen are your dupes invisible on? Could you send us the same things I asked mf99k for above?:

What version of OSX are you running?

What hardware are you running the game on?

The contents of: <Your_home_directory>/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

@255 the game runs fine on my pc, and that has an intel HD Graphics 4000 card. Wouldn't it in theory not work for either, or is 4000 close enough to function?

secondly, couldn't the 3000 card theoretically work if more graphics settings were implemented asides from the current ones (which I think is mainly UI right now)?
