Resolution change killed the game

Post by drdooom »

Hi Everyone

a few days ago when I was playing with the settings I accidentally set a resolution value higher than 1920x1080 and now all 3 games crash with a fatal error message

Assertion failure at SDL_GL_GetDrawableSize_REAL (/Users/travis/build/OpenRA/OpenRALauncherOSX/SDL2-2.0.12/src/video/SDL_video.c:3589), triggered 1 time:
'window && window->magic == &_this->window_magic'


I already deleted the 3 game files and reinstalled but it still wont work, I'm one of those "mac" gamers and cant seem to find any other game related files anywhere on my system yet the settings remain.

has anyone got a workaround for this ?

thank you.

Open a finder window then select the menu option Go -> Go To Folder... (or use the hotkey Cmd + Shift + G).

Enter "~/Library/Application Support/OpenRA/" (without the quotes) into the text field and press Go.

Delete the file settings.yaml and try starting one of the games.

Oh man, are you serious?! You are gaming on a mac?! I used to do the same thing a couple of years ago, however I decided to stop it, as I could not actually enjoy the game well enough, moreover the computer got broken becuase of that. Mostly, I was playing counter strike global offensive, fifa and dota 2. I really like these games as they are the most popular on the esports arena. I also like to place bets on different esports games. Mostly I am doing that on https://www.u12x.com/แทงบอล/ as they are having the best betting system.
