Rimworld doesn’t start after Catalina Update
« on: October 04, 2019, 10:43:38 PM »

I'm using the most recent Rimworld update on macOS 10.13.6.

Rimworld seems to crash every time I try to open it using Steam. When I start-up Rimworld, it says "Last time you opened Rimworld, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Would you like to reopen those windows? [Don't Reopen, Reopen]".

Clicking either of these options crashes the game, and not clicking either option crashes the game too.
Attached is the .txt file for the crash log.
I tried rebooting my computer, and that didn't seem to help.

Edit: I uninstalled and reinstalled Rimworld, which didn't solve anything. I also updated macOS to 10.14.4, which also didn't solve anything. The only difference is that now it no longer throws the crash log.

Hi,
sorry the mac log don't look familar for me.
But many problem happen from old video driver. Not sure if you need to update them self or this happen with the macOS update too.

Hmmm, I don't think macOS even has video driver updates. The mac's video driver is usually built into the OS itself I think.

Rimworld doesn’t start after Catalina Update

After the Update on my 2013 MacBook Air Steam works just fine. But when I try to start Rimworld it starts also but stops at ‚Initialising‘ on the start screen and throws the beachball up.
Uninstalling Steam and Rimworld didn’t help.
Any ideas?

I'm trying to figure out if RimWorld is actually systemically broken after a MacOS update or if these are machine-specific issues.

Any other MacOS users with Catalina can comment? Does your game work?

This originally happened to me in High Sierra, but the problem remains even after the Catalina update.

Some mod, or a combination thereof, causes a crash once you update to macOS 10.15, but I'm not sure which one(s).  Vanilla appears to run fine.

I updated to Catalina on my mac laptop (mid-2015 macbook pro) on Friday. Everything has been working fine for me.

I think this may have been caused by a corrupted save file or cache.

The crash log says
Exception Type:        EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)


So it's probably some error caused by my game not saving or quitting correctly.

That looks more like bad memory, bad CPU, or some deep hardware driver screwing up. You can get software to test your memory.
