Just got the game via Steam, based on my experiences with the demo over a year ago. However, I cannot get the game to launch.
Version: Alpha 0.871 (according to the version.txt file)
First issue is that the launch quits on the first attempt.
1. Launch Steam
2. Click Play on Planet Explorers entry
- Launcher tries to load, then immediately quits
3. Click Play on Planet Explorers entry again
- Launcher loads
Second (and much more important) issue is that the game fails to load.
- OpenCL Calculation is Cpu (and cannot be changed)
- Renderer is Default (and also cannot be changed)
- setting graphics quality to Fastest
- checking and unchecking Windowed
- adjusting the screen resolution to 640 x 480
When I click Start in the launcher, a Planet Explorers window is created when PE_Client launches. After a second or two, the window zooms to full screen, still black. No further changes occur. The only option is to force quit.
I'm running on Mac OS X 10.11.1 with 12 GB of RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 5750 (1024 MB).
