Having massive graphics issues

★★★ Newbie

I have a late 2015 iMac running El Capitan and have never had any problems with the game. This year I suddenly started experiencing crazy graphics issues which make the game unplayable. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, tried the game in both windowed and full screen mode, tried changing the graphics settings. I believe it started happening around the legacy split-off update but to my knowledge my machine isn't required to change to the legacy edition. Performance is otherwise laggy but functional, seems to only/mostly be a graphics thing. I have no cc or mods installed.

Merged your post into this thread on El Capitan issues. Please update your OS to High Sierra or later to get back into your game.

Thanks. Merged your posts into this thread as the issue is El Capitan. Please upgrade your OS to 10.13.6 High Sierra or later to get back into your game. Sierra is also causing issues for some, especially those with AMD graphics cards.

10.13.6 High Sierra - https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208969
10.14.6 Mojave - https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT210190
10.15.4 Catalina - update through the Mac App Store
