[SUPPORT] [PERFORMANCE] [MAC] - slow running game

Postby cinameng » Wed Dec 27, 2017 2:52 pm


I've just purchased the Marketing & Malpractice DLC after having previously acquired the main game some time ago now and having just installed and booted, the game seems to be running very slowly. Just wandering if that's usual for a machine of my spec as I'm sure I meet the minimum requirements.

I'm running:

iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2012)
macOS High Sierra 10.13.12
2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 512 MB

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

I've tried adjusting the resolution, lowering to 1024 x 768 and there was a small improvement but not enough to run the game as smoothly as I would have hoped.

I'm pretty sure that when I acquired the main game, I did launch it initially and I didn't notice the issue, however I'm not sure that I had actually played any at that stage as my steam time was only clocked at 2 mins play time. (I do seem to remember starting the tutorial and thinking I'd come back to it)

Any help appreciated.

Hi Cinameng,

I'm sorry for the late reply, I've been away on my holidays.

Are you experiencing slow performance all the time or only after you build a big factory? I would agree that your specs should be able to run the game. Lowering the resolution probably won't make much difference as the performance is normally CPU limited.
