Linux or Mac issues with ASA Remastered

    Hi,

    Linux and OSX was an completely 64 Bit player, so using 64 Bit was right.
    Think i must try it too with Mint.

    Hm… But the Steam Client try to hook with the player. You can see it here:
    SteamCGLFlushDrawable, gameoverlayrenderer.dylb, …
    The Steam Client tries every time to hook with the Steam Overlay. Try to start the game manually here:
    open ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common
    1
    2

    Or go to -> Preferences -> In game -> Disable Steam Overlay.
    I think then it starts. If it was this issue, try to add the latest steam_api.dylib in the game.app/Contents/MacOS directory (where the binary is located)
    Then re-enable the overlay in the client.

    Sounds like good ideas. I'll share them with the people who have issues, and will let you know if it helps. Thanks!

    We've tried several things, including your clue with the overlay option, and the steam_api.dylib. Unfortunately it didn't work.
    The game doesn't work for them, even if they start it manually.

    I have noticed something: most of the people who have issues on Mac are using the Yosemite version.
    Some of them cannot play the game. It crashes (as explained above)
    If they can play the game, they have strange issues with buttons not working (but these buttons are definetely working in the game, we have checked with Andy).
