    Condensed (Mac) Issues

    Disclaimer: Some of these issues may have already been posted. I have only complied all the issues I'm having while playing on a Mac and hope these are addressed soon to help myself and other Mac users.

    __________________________________________________ ____________________________________________


    RECENT ISSUES

    2. When I attempt to log into Smite, at times, I will be directed to one of the following:
    - The screen with the "Reconnect" button,*
    - The screen stating "Unable to connect to server" or,*
    - Amazingly, I am able to connect and play.

    *If I were to click the "Reconnect" button, it will just freeze up for approximately a minute and take me to the "Unable to connect to server" screen.

    ONGOING ISSUES

    Urgent-ish
    3. Invisible Vulcan turrets.
    - This has been going on for a very long time now and needs to be patched.
    - I can see Vulcan's animation of setting the turret down, but there is a chance that it will be invisible on my screen.
    - It will still shoot (obviously).

    4. Game crashes.
    - At certain times, such as after a victory/defeat, the Smite application will suddenly just crash.
    - I would not receive the normal "[...] unexpectedly crashed." window.

    5. Teleporting.
    - At 40-80 ping only, I will still 'lag' and 'teleport' to where I would be if I wasn't 'lagging.'
    - I have previously bootcamp'd the same Mac that I am currently using and when playing Smite, I had no issues with that whatsoever.
    - The short-run fix is to restart my router before playing. Every. (D)ucking. Match.

    Less Urgent
    6. God icons spazzing out of control.
    - When in a match lobby (or the 'god selection' screen), the god icons would sometimes only on the bottom half of the god icon and start to stutter/spaz.

    7. Silent VGS and announcements.
    - At the beginning of the match (especially after starting up Smite), I will be able to hear everyone's (including my own) VGS commands and the announcer's announcements.
    - After some (variable, not fixed) time, I will be unable to hear them.
    - I will hear the 'ping' noise (the noise when someone enters something in chat, but not the VGS commands.


    Resolved

    1. As of the recent patch on Friday, April 13th, 2018, it has been impossible to get beyond the god card loading screen.
    __________________________________________________ ____________________________________________


    These are all issues I have witnessed while playing Smite. I would not mind being contacted about these issues - especially if I can do something to help the (Mac) community. If anyone has any issues (not related to lagging/bad ping/fps) that I did not address and would like me to add to this list, please post a reply and I will do my best to keep this list updated as much as possible.

    Your fellow Smite gaming nerd,

    Nice compilation!

    As for myself, I am struggling with the 2nd issue you posted: the game opens on the "reconnect" screen and when I press it, it goes to black screen for a minute before redirecting me to the "unable to connect to server" screen. From there it will only repeat endlessly.

    That issue first happened two weeks after the SPL broadcasts started on Mixer (I managed to log on the mac client the first two weeks) and lasted until I caved in and updated my 2015 Macbook Pro to High Sierra, just a couple days ago. After the update, upon opening the game, I would get a mac window saying the game "quit unexpectedly" with the option to "Reopen" which I did, and the game would then open on a screen asking for my username and password in grey boxes, IN THE CLIENT and not the LAUNCHER. After entering my info, the game opened normally.

    Only after a couple times, it stopped giving me the mac window, booted up the game and I was back on the "reconnect" -> black screen -> "unable to connect" pattern.

    I can't find any solution as of now, please help!

    i will add that the vgs is much more important than most of the other things on this list, as that can not only affect vgs but also ward pings (it seems to be the same problem) only being pings and not being announced by the announcer pack or by anything sometimes. as with voice packs it decays as matches go on, and the more matches you play after opening the game (like your 3rd or 4th match without restarting the game) it can get bad enough that you wont hear anything from the very beginning of the game.

    i will also add that the vulcan turret thing is by far the worst mac bug, and extends to a number of other deployable items. the list i have right now includes:
    vulc turret (most common by far, but very hard to screen shot since it gets killed if youre in combat and will kill you if you just stand there to get the screenshot of the projectile without the turret)
    nox bubble (only certain angles, fairly common)
    thor wall (very rare)
    backing fx (doesnt affect game but VERY common, only from certain angles)
    susano 3 (VERY rare, only seen this once)
    swk decoy (also rare)
    loki decoy (less common but more common than rare ones, somewhere in between)
    poseidon 1 (rare)
    zeus shield (very rare)

    Finally a reply! I've posted on every thread on the internet that I can find, do you know any ways that prolong the audio in game? Ive been doing some testing and no dice with anything yet.

    I always play a really good game for the first 10 minutes then a 99% skill drop after that, I hate it.
