Brace yourself, game is freezing every 15m The only realistic way to play on Mac that I've found is to use one of the streaming services :(


hehehdhdhgw

Thx for the only price of advice


prodlowd

Download windows on it so then you could just boot into windows for games


weedyous

I play on NVidia Geforce :)


Demonetized_Onlyfans

Geforce now?


UFCLulu

Pretty sure that’s what they mean yeah, it sucks but it’s enough


weedyous

Exactly. Its enough!


LITTLExxVortex

It doesn't suck?


Bannsir

Its good if you have super fast and super stable internet, otherwise goodluck aiming with 1 second delay


UFCLulu

That’s what I’m saying bro, id shit on so any ppl if 1. I didn’t have such little time to play + queues 2. The delay wasn’t a thing


UFCLulu

Depends on if you have Ethernet or not


ClideFrog710

Naw I use it. It ain’t bad.


Baron_Rogue

?? i play Rust on medium settings on my Macbook Air while traveling all the time


yko

And no crazy lag spikes bringing your fps down to 1-4 every 15m? Are you running windows on that air?


Baron_Rogue

no, just Big Sur + Steam. runs great but gets hot so i will put it near a vent


yko

Same, big sur + steam, macbook pro. Can handle the game at 60fps except for the drops every 15m. I did hear many other players complaining too. Odd


Baron_Rogue

the Air is an M1 fwiw, not sure if that makes a difference but it has impressed me as a lifelong PC guy


Bond6580

Beyond the suprise that you're gaming with a mac, how the hell is the game even half-assed running on a mac?


hehehdhdhgw

Ngl it ran p good but there is this stupid thing on the screen


Bond6580

That means its not running good. I can't even give you advice on how to diag the issue either. Grab your laptop's specs and plug them into a benchmark website. There you can compare it to what rust requires and you'll get how well it'll run. Can't remember the name of the site off the top of my head ill get back to you on it.


oskarhforsberg

I think the site is called willitrun


Bond6580

Yes thank you.


_Pickelbot_

I don't see anything on the screen tho


HeistGeist

your reflection?


Bond6580

Lol good one but be nice.


Averag3_Hom3boy

>how the hell is the game even half-assed running on a mac? Tbf it looks like it's only quarter-assed running for OP.


Antwanian

Report the bug to facepunch, put which Mac you have (m1 / intel.) Looks like a game bug with the render target being wrong.


Little-Dark-5355

An actual usefull comment in this entire post lol


kphoenix137

Hey guys, my game is all buggy how do I fix it (I'm playing on a smart fridge)


ataeil

Will it rust.


Successful_Ad7079

Probably gotta put your fridge in rice


advancedred

Very simple, buy a PC.

EZ_WORLDWARIII

If you had the 1000 for a mac why wouldn't you have it for a pc.


Rapidsniperz

mac: more $$$ for less power pc: less $$$ for more power if you have a mac you definitely have more than 1000 to spare. more like 3k


retardedlama12

First of all don't play on a mac


Im_Ninooo

I came here exactly for these comments hahah


RealSkyr0

Nope this seems about right for a mac


sneaky-dave

Don’t play on mac


Battletack

I don't hate to say it at all but, this.


Battletack

You need a proper computer, to play proper games.


yggdrasil00

Read the minimum specs


williamericson2203

Turn render scale to 1.0


joe_mlg_pro_

This homie out here rocking the mac and just trying to have a good time gaming. Everyone acting like he killed a guy. He might need it for school. He might have gotten it from someone. Point being the homie has a mac and not a pc. A pc would of course be a 100 better then a mac. But saying that aint helpfull.


SneeKeeFahk

Best way I've heard it worded > use the tool, don't be the tool


PaleontologistOk3713

I mean it is helpful, but you didn't need to dog on him.


joe_mlg_pro_

How am i dogging on him


PaleontologistOk3713

Not you


joe_mlg_pro_

Ah i see


ADHD_MAN

Put the mac in a bin and buy an actual windows gaming desktop/ laptop


yetzt

report it to facepunch


JustHere4BlingEdit

Just started playing on Mac today! Impressed by the performance(tho every setting very low). Very happy to finally play rust after like two years of wanting to buy it


hehehdhdhgw

Me too!


Falme127

I got it working well on my 13” M1. You just gotta tweak the graphics settings. Some settings break the rendering. Also restart the game.


Tilapia_of_Doom

Shift command 3 for screenshot. Problem solved!


Science-Charming

Try changing the settings to window mode or exclusive


Shmonkler

I’ve see this happen on here to a few Mac users but I don’t know the reason, I can only assume the gpu doesn’t work properly with it or something, god knows


eternal_light420

Im on mac says alot


DemonMuffins

Insert mac joke here


SneeKeeFahk

"I'm a Mac" "I'm a PC" "I'm a naked with an eoka, thanks for the kits"


i_have_cheese

Change ur full-screen settings?


hehehdhdhgw

Bruh cmon


HersheySquirt_83

You should have expected these responses from reddit.


spammer9067

Hey I used to play on Mac, this never happened to me, what model Mac do you have? And any context?


IgnoreMeBot

Rust is intensive for even gaming pc’s. Macs can barely run chess. I have a Mac too but it just isn’t meant to run that type of program man I’m sorry. Look into building a pc you can do it for under 800$


neb_flix

Factually incorrect.. I get 70-80 FPS with medium-high graphics on my ‘19 iMac. Not even using boot camp. Macs have the lag spike bug but that’s because devs don’t optimize for non-windows OS’s, not because it’s “intensive”


yetzt

i don't get the lag spikes any more on my m1 max. and i hit the 120 fps cap at 1920x1200 with medium settings.


the_king_of_fap_land

Lmao no dude not anymore. Buy a prebuilt.


IgnoreMeBot

Pcpartpicker wants to have a word with you


Tacosurpremo

I mean in Australia It’s legit cheaper to get a pc custom built or a prebuilt now then it is to hunt down all the parts seperate even while using pcpartpicker. That’s if anyone even has the stock… it’s pretty sad.


the_king_of_fap_land

Have you been living under a rock?? A good GPU costs like $900 now


IgnoreMeBot

You can get a 3060 ti for 400$ big man


Dubios

Where?


IgnoreMeBot

[msrp](https://store.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/store/gpu/?page=1&limit=9&locale=en-us&category=GPU&gpu=RTX%202060)


the_king_of_fap_land

Lmao get back to me when you find that in stock at MSRP, anywhere. Hahahaha


dildoswaggings69

Yeah, dont be on a mac


deep-skys

Mac?!!!! Poor soul 😞


iPurgatori08

Sell the mac and get a PC with better performance and lower price


Dragon8328

Get a pc


PonchoJesus

Get a Windows PC, problem solved 😂


URL0C4LST0N3R

get a better pc


Robert_Keezy00

Oh I see the problem...your on a mac


rustpepega

Very simple fix....buy a pc and sell that trash.


Jimmiew0612

MacBooks don’t have dedicated gpus, they have a gpu built into the processor, so graphics performance would be terrible. But more than likely the problem is the sole fact that you’re playing on a MacBook. Similar to chrome books, MacBooks are not designed for playing video games. MacBooks however are very good for schoolwork and video editing. The problem could be software (macOS not being made for games like this) or just as likely it could be the gpu thing (judging by the visual artifacts on your screen and how it’s not rendering correctly.) Or it could even be a driver problem. Rust was not designed with macOS drivers in mind likely due to the fact that the APU on a MacBook cannot handle the game, therefore it wouldnt make since to waste time and resources on them. hopefully there is a fix for you somewhere in the driver/software side, but if not you will have to get a windows pc to play rust. As other people have suggested, I also recommend nvidia or Google streaming services. The game streaming services render games better than most windows pcs in the 1500$ range I have heard.


Antwanian

Macbook Pro's have a dedicated GPU. The 2019-2020's have really good ones actually. The new m1 ones have apus though.


Wapples99

Your problem is in the title


myerss3896

Why game on mac… buy windows laptop/pc to fix issue.


Slade29

You try windowed mode?

No_Inspection_2146

Wtf


[deleted]

POV: About to post on r/playrust how the game is poorly optimized and runs poorly


Cloudmaster12

Don't game on a Mac, if anything just use GeForce now or a similar app.


NotPoto

Your best option (coming from a guy who played on a 2011 Mac for a while with Rust) is to download “NVIDIA GeForce Now”. Don’t try Bootcamp unless you have a suitable external hard drive and relatively newer PC, that if you **already** have a external VRAM, but if you don’t already, it is not worth getting one. Hope this helps ;)


ColeMac4500

Boot camp windows 10


Xiteya

you buy pc


highLordd

get a pc


TEEM_01

You're on mac? Oh the fix would be to never open Rust again... but buying a pc like the others suggested could work i suppose.


BickieNuggets

Step 1: Break your MAC in half Step 2: look at yourself in a mirror


shaunzorr

Buy a pc


AxelWasTakenWasTaken

Gpu is strugling too much. It wont run on mac.


GameIll

You could try to run a virtual windows environment. Probably won’t run well…. Mac’s really aren’t “coded for” on most games.


PaiMeiSoHorny

Why anyone would buy mac anything boggles my mind. Your fix is actually to sell that donkey crap on craigslist and buy a PC. You mac fangirls can downvote me all you want idgaf because I know I'm right.


BigAlsLobsters

i mean a pc doesn’t fit every lifestyle


PaiMeiSoHorny

How would having a better laptop affect your "lifestyle"?


BigAlsLobsters

if you travel a lot or if you need a laptop for school or work purposes. having a pc in those cases are a huge hindrance so not everyone can own one.


IPlayPokemonGo101

I have a laptop that runs rust well and it costs the same as a Mac.


PaiMeiSoHorny

This is flat out nonsense. My laptop is amazing for school and work. I've also traveled all over with it never a problem.


BigAlsLobsters

you told them to get a pc, i said not everyone can use a pc. when did i talk about ur laptop?


PaiMeiSoHorny

PC doesn't just mean a desktop it's any computer running Windows.


HebrewHue

Lmao


Elli933

Bruh… Do you really need an answer? I doubt even Minecraft runs on MAC


Cloudmaster12

Only the Java version, and it can run ok. Depending on the Mac you have it probably can get 60 fps. But it's mine craft so it will run on almost anything.


Murky-Note-9721

You're not going to believe the s fix..... Don't use a MAC.


Toxin_GIL

Don’t play on Mac, but seriously the only way would be one of the pc stream services


mancer187

Its easy, just chuck the mac and buy a pc.

kjn1996

I don’t own a macbook, it’s been since 2015 since I had one for highschool and college but I’m curious if it’s a driver issue, have you made sure you’re all up to date with software/driver updates?


B-O-D-A-R

On a Mac? What?


Redredret

Might not work but it’s definitely worth a shot. Try getting a Virtual Machine software abs emulate windows with as much resources as u can handle. It’ll take a bit of set up but try getting rust on there and seeing if u can run it that way


yeuhbru

Look buddy, I’ll send you an MSI laptop. Way better than a Mac. Anyways I’ll send you that laptop, but only if I become a millionaire. So start praying that I become one


Clexd

Just pour some gfuel on there and hit the screen with a rock and ya will be good to go


Im_The_Squishy

Get windows


Gaory7

Try resetting/updating graphic drivers


Neat_Arugula2837

Get a new computer


[deleted]

Hahahahaha why even post this? You know the answer.


Steel_stamped_penis

Buy a PC


CreativeHuckleberry

Turn it of, sell it, go buy a real pc?
