Mac OS X is a
great platform for gaming (certainly better than many PC users give it credit for). Apple’s new Mac range is fast enough to play all the latest games, and its top-end MacBook Pros and iMacs are
amazing gaming machines.
Nothing is more frustrating than a Mac game that keeps crashing, though. You’re just enjoying a good
gaming session when it freezes, resets or boots you back out to OS X.
In this feature we’re going to look at what to do if you’ve got a game that keeps crashing. The first piece of advice we’ve got is to update the game to the newest/latest available version.
If you picked up the game from the App Store, updating is simple. Open the Mac App Store app and click Updates in the top bar. If any of your games have uninstalled updates they will be shown here. Look for an option to Update next to the game. If all of your Mac App Store games are up to date, it will say No Updates Available.
Updating other games varies from title to title, but a quick check through the main menu should yield what you’re looking for. And we’ll deal with the updating process for Steam games in the next slide.
