>OBSERVER_ on macOS High Sierra (10.13) pauses on a black windowed screen.
On some Macs running High Sierra (10.13), >OBSERVER_ will revert to black screen in windowed mode after showing the opening logo movies. Once this occurs the game will seem to pause or freeze on this screen and not progress.
This issue can be resolved by selecting the Maximize button (green) in the top left corner. This will return the window to full screen and the game will continue to the Main Menu.
>OBSERVER_ (Windows): Crashes or No Audio at the beginning sequence
At the opening car sequence, the operator says the line "Lazarski? You there?!" and the game crashes.
This issue has been logged as related to SLI being enabled on Nvidia GPU configurations. Set SLI to off in the Nvidia control panel to bypass the crash.
You may also try running the game in Window 8 compatibility mode. To do this try the following steps:
- Right-click on Observer in the Steam Library > Properties
- Select Local Files > Browse Local Files
- Right-Click the Application in File Explorer > Properties > Compatibility
- Enable compatibility mode and select Windows 8
