    Yes, I can no longer get past the opening Title screen. It stays on that screen with scrolling text along the top...

  • I have a MacBook 5,2 with 4GB RAM and a SSD, runs on Mountain Lion 10.8 and just bought The Walking Dead. I have overlay problems; text is not being displayed correctly (where the (opening) text must be shown, it's just garbled lines like a broken video card). Strange thing, all the other things are rendered correctly; the scene in the car looks great, except the text. Furthermore the game randomly crashes and sends crash reports to Apple. Strange thing though is that the game is longer playable, and the text overlay problem is not visible in windowed mode.

    I agree. I also have problems with ML and VMWare Fusion 4.1.3, the 'second screen goes crazy' problem that everyone seems to get with Fusion and ML. There seems to be a problem with ML. Let's wait for a fix from Apple, hope they release it soon!

  • After opening the game, "click to continue" leads to a quick "connecting" followed by no action: a banner still runs on the top of the screen, but it doesn't progress to the game (I'm running Mountain Lion on a recent imac). Quitting leads to a force-quit situation. Sucks.

    Are you sure that nothing is happening? If you haven't opened the game since 7/25 (when a patch was released for the Mac version) or if you downloaded it after that date, the game will update for a while and might appear stuck.
    Here's what I posted in another thread.
    @VicRandom said: If you re-downloaded it (or if you started the game) after the patch was released, when you click on "click to continue", it might look like the game is frozen, but it's probably downloading the patch (it confused me for a while until I saw that my computer was busy downloading something).
    If you switch to non-full screen mode by pressing command-f, you can do other things on your computer while the patch downloads.

    I have the same problem, text and subtitle are now all colour block, i have no idea what happen.
    i have macbook pro retina and run mountain lion.
    Please fix this so i can have fun with the game.

  • Yes... I just upgraded to mountain Lion and the game won't even open. Says file damaged and gotta be moved to trash. I re-downloaded the installer (Ver3) from TTG.com and yet it says the same thing after I re-installed. TTG. I need a refund. If not at least transfer my game to iPad since it's out on iTunes now.

  • I was also experiencing the "file damaged" problem, but I worked around that problem using the instructions in this thread:

    The game runs now (on MBP retina), but the text prompts on screen are completely illegible/scrambled. I hope that a fix is coming.

  • I have the same issue with fonts since the upgrade, I know apple updated the OpenGl drivers for this release so I'd expect that would be the root cause.

    I still have very blocky shadows which are pretty annoying does anyone else have this? though I've had these before my mountain lion upgrade I was just hoping the driver update would fix them :( ah well.
