jdowellc: Hey guys, I've searched around but can't find an explanation for what's happening here. I'm trying to play Firewatch on my old iMac and it's become super laggy right when I get to the first tower. The game was fine just after the intro but once I reached the tower, it became unplayable. I started the game on default high settings but after experiencing this lag, I changed everything to low with most options turned off completely, yet there is no visible difference.
I've been able to play games like Sims 4 on medium settings with no lag/stuttering and I'm pretty sure that my system exceeds the minimum recommended requirements for Firewatch. So I'm not sure what's going on. I don’t know if it matters but the main menu is super responsive however the pause menu is so slow that I can't move the mouse. Can anyone point me to a solution or explanation? Would it be a problem with the Mac or the game? Sorry if this has been posted before but I couldn't find it.
My specs are:
- 2012, 2.7 ghz i5
- 8 gb ram
- Nvidia geforce gt 640m
- 1tb hd
- High Sierra
Thanks in advance :)
Can you try the latest version of Firewatch? We've updated the game to version 1.07 and that should have some performance improvements for High Sierra :)
