OS X 10.9 Instant Crash [Fixed in update]

posted by wernerdev on - last edited by DjNDB - Viewed by 36.5K users

I am running OS X 10.9 GM, but The Walking Dead instantly crashes when trying to start it. It seems it has to do with the Code Signature of the game: Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (Code Signature Invalid)

Is this known? Working in a fix? Because 10.9 is going live somewhere near the end of this month...

  • It doesn't work for me... In the terminal, I read: bundle format unrecognized, invalid, or unsuitable In subcomponent: /Applications/

      I don't know what causes these error messages. It worked for me the way I described it. I am not a Mac expert at all, but hopefully someone will find out what causes that.

  • This is just not acceptable. If they (Telltalegames) are developers, then they have had access to 10.9 for over six months. That they even use the "Sudden" and "Unexpected" launch of 10.9 as an excuse is LAME. As a developer myself, we get the OS many months before the actual release. To add insult to injury developers are also warned before the launch of an OS to make sure they have their software up to date. I have updated my OS and I am current. The developer should do so as well.

  • At least they are on it.

    Thanks DjNDB of your efforts

  • When will TTG get the update for OSX 10.9?

    We have just released an update that will resolve this issue, but you will need to install the latest version of the game. To do this, uninstall the current version of The Walking Dead that is installed on your computer. Then login to your Telltale account, select the drop-down arrow next to your avatar, select 'My Games' and download the Mac installation file (version 4). Once re-mstalled, you should no longer experience an issue on OS X 10.9.

      When did you download it? You need to download the latest version from the my games section.

      You get to the "My Games" section, by pressing the Alt text icon at the top of the page and selecting "My Games".
