UT OS X Troubleshooting Tips
12:35 PM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

The much anticipated Preview Release 1 of Unreal Tournament for OS X has been released, and as can be expected with any early beta, certain users are experiencing problems. Westlake has posted a few tips put together by Mark Adams, and asks that you check these details on the most common problems BEFORE e-mailing them with bug reports. Here is the list:

"Assertion failed: RenDev" error on startup. You MUST use the "Unreal Tournament.ini" and "User.ini" files installed by the UT X installer, not old copies. Don't throw away these ini files or replace them. They contain special settings that only work for UT X.

"Assertion failed MinLogTextureSize<MaxLogTextureSize ". Same as the above error, make sure you are using the .ini files installed by the UT X installer.

Can't start up after switching to windowed mode. Don't ever switch out of full screen mode. If you do, re-install with the UT X installer.

"Class Actor Member Owner Script=48" error on startup. Not sure what causes this, we're looking into it.

Problems with the "first run" dialog that lets you pick renderer (OpenGL, Software, etc). You should never get this dialog. Don't try to switch renderers inside the game. Don't swap out the ini files or modify the GameRenderDevice or AudioDevice lines in the ini file.

This page will be updated as Westlake finds other fixes and workarounds to problems. Be sure and check the IMG Troubleshooting and OS X forums for similar discussions already in progress.
