Hello,

I'll check back with our support regarding High Sierra, but the system requirements for Deponia Doomsday state clearly that a dedicated graphics card is required. Your system only uses the IntelHD graphics chip, which is unfortunately not sufficient to run the game.

Best regards,
Galdring

Edit: Support wanted me to check and ask if you are using a Retail version (physical copy) of the game. Regardless of not meeting the system requirements, there seems to be an issue with High Sierra at the moment.

Hello, same here :(
After upgrading to High Sierra the game is not launching anymore.
Worked perfect under Maverick & Sierra (all Deponia titles).
I am using the Steam version.
Error message from the log:

Code: Alles auswählen

Had something similar occur to me with the Steam Version. Fixed it by performing the following steps:

1.) Launch Terminal
2.) cd to the Deponia Doomsday installation directory. Could be in /Applications, or in ~/Library/Application Support/Steam Apps/Deponia Doomsday if installed via steam.
3.) Run the following 2 commands:

Code: Alles auswählen

cd Deponia\ Doomsday.app/Contents/Frameworks
cp /usr/lib/libz.1.dylib .

4.) Restart the the app.

It's happening to me as well. Just installed the game today via Steam.
I'm using a MacBook Pro (15 inch, mid 2015) with a discrete AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB running High Sierra.

Hi!

If you press "Report" and see a line that says "Symbol not found: _inflateValidate" it's the same bug I encountered. It's due to the zlib version being different from that expected by the version of IOKit framework in High Sierra.

I'm sure Dadedalic are already on it, but I did this as a temporary fix and have played for six hours with nothing but a few minor graphical glitches, (nothing game breaking):

1. I made a backup of the "Deponia Doomsday" binary, located under my steam library folder

Code: Alles auswählen

/Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Deponia Doomsday/Deponia Doomsday.app/Contents/MacOS


2. I opened a terminal window and wrote

Code: Alles auswählen

cd /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Deponia Doomsday/Deponia Doomsday.app/Contents/MacOS


3. I looked at what dynamic libraries the application uses with "otool -L Deponia\ Doomsday". You see that it loads its own zlib:

Code: Alles auswählen

@executable_path/../Frameworks/libz.1.dylib


4. I replaced this with the system libz.1.dylib located under

Code: Alles auswählen

/usr/lib/libz.1.dylib
using the following command:

Code: Alles auswählen

install_name_tool -change @executable_path/../Frameworks/libz.1.dylib /usr/lib/libz.1.dylib Deponia\ Doomsday


5. I looked at what dynamic libraries the application uses again with "otool -L Deponia\ Doomsday" to verify the change took effect.

Hope that helps! Oh and thanks Dadedalic for the sweet game!
