Problem since last update. Stuck in the Options window.


New Member

The last update on Wednesday broke the game for me.

Now, when I launch, the game opens to the Options window and doesn't let me proceed.

The Options also look strange. Some fields have generic labels, instead of the usual values. For instance, the Resolutions field now has "Option A", "Option B", and "Option C", instead of the normal choices. The same can be seen in the Fields for Quality, Cloud Quality, Frame Rate Limiter, etc. See attached image.

The sliders also seem broken. They move but the numeric value stays at 100% always. This happens to the volume sliders and also view and shadow distances.

Trying to close the Options pane by pressing the X on the uppen right corner doesn't work. The only thing I can do is close the game entirely.

The game worked fine before the last update. The update was done the usual way via the launcher.

I have tried using the Force Check option in the launcher but nothing changed. I also uninstalled the game and downloaded a fresh installer from the Embers site. After a long download and new update, the problem is still there.

This happens on a Mac.

Anything I can do to fix the problem?

Thanks in advance! :)

PS- The embersadrift.log is too large to be uploaded here, even when split in 2 parts (it gives an error). If needed, I can try splitting it in even more segments. Please let me know.
