we are still investigating, we can reproduce this bug when placing a flare (which may not happen in 1vs1 as you do not have any allies to communicate with). Has this bug appeared without anyone in the game placing a flare ?

Thanks for your feedback so far.



Its hard to say, but with 4 or 6 people what starts the lock down, but I see is the bar showing a players name that you see when someone has a connection issue, except the count down clock is at .00 and its not always a mac player name might be a pc guy.

1. Are you playing in windowed mode or in fullscreen mode? Fullscreen
2. What is your Mac computer model? 15 Inch MacBook Pro, 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
3. What is your Mac OS X version? Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5

-So yeah, I can play against one PC player, however more will freeze the game, I can still type in stuff, I can move the screen around and place troops, but the countdown clock is frozen
I have nothing to put here except.... PLEASE HAVE RD FOR MACS!!!!

At the moment, the only way we know to reproduce this is for any player to put a flare when playing a game with a mixed PC/Mac or Linux game. There may be other ways to trigger it, so we try to get as much informations as possible.

We are trying to get a fix fast at least for the flare problem. But it should involve patching all the versions, so it may take a few days.

Sorry again for this bug, and thanks again for your feedback.


No one on my team places a flare. I cannot say about the other side, but as far as I know, no flares were involved when the bug occurs. I'll see if I can replicate it that way again...

Where do I find the new version? Can I download the update through steam or do I need to do this on my own?

We had some freezes friday night, 4v4's and it froze up right as soon as the game started up. Didn't even get to deploy anything and it was a MAC causing it. Happened twice in a row.

So now most guys I know are putting NO MACs in the lobby titles making this patch useless untill we know its fixed.

Seems like cross-platform games will load to the deploy screen but show a constant synch alert and some games will not load at all, just the 'Loading' blinks on the screen and a 3 finger salute is required to break out of the situation.
