Not Solved SOMA freezes at room flood

Just made contact with the girl in the communication room. Place floods, she tells me to head to the shuttle, simon says "oh fuck - what do i do!?" and as the water rises, the screen goes black. It doesn't crash, because I hear the sounds slowly fade away, but then I wait forever and nothing starts up after.

My computer freezes, and only hard restart boots it back up.

List of things I've tried:

>updating drivers
>setting resolution to 640x400, turning off V-sync, textures to low, turning off shadows
>running the game with no background programs
>running the game in windowed mode

SYSTEM SPECS:

Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB
Software: OS X 10.8.4

105.65 GB of flash storage space

Macbook Pro
Retina, Mid 2012

Do you still have this issue? Was this a GOG or Steam build? I have the exact same macbook hardware (except non-retina) and I fixed this issue.

How did you fix it? I've got the GOG version, and I've got the exact same problem.

Make sure you are running 1.02 version of the game and if needed replay using a save from previous level.

Hi! How did you fix this issue? I'm still stuck at the communications room due to the crash. I've updated to public_beta. I've verified the cache. I've turned off the fancy graphics features. Then I replayed from the start of the game and still...it crashes? Any thoughts?

Also what is GOG? How can I verify which build I have? I'm playing this through Steam.

Not Solved RE: SOMA freezes at room flood

I just made a change to the [public_beta] version of the game that may help with this issue. If you'd like to try it out do the following:

1. right click SOMA in your library
2. click properties
3. click BETAS tab
4. select "public_beta" from drop-down list
5. click LOCAL FILES tab
6. click VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE...

If you still have the issue let me know.

I just tried the above fixes and still am having a graphical freakout that ends with the spinning beach ball of death and needing a restart. Everything's running like a charm prior to the flooding in the comm room.

Not Solved RE: SOMA freezes at room flood

I just encountered this problem. Horrible graphics glitches after the flood scene. Sound did seem to work. I could slowly move around a tad and then my Mac Pro crashed and restarted. Afterwards, I found that Steam had forgotten my login and where my Steam folder was. I fixed that easily, but my SOMA saves seem to be gone now. When I start the game there are no saved games to load (the option is greyed out). I assume they still exist but SOMA has forgotten where they are.

Up until that point, everything seemed to be going well. Undecided

Mac Pro Late 2013
64 GB RAM
3.5 GHz Xeon 6-core
2xAMD FirePro D500

Edit: Ah I see the Mac Pro thread. It doesn't seem to mention the Steam folder and saved game problem, but otherwise it's the same issue.
