Ticket to Ride Computer Game Doesn't Work on Mac Now? Thu, 25 September 2008 04:52
I have been playing TTR on my Mac for quite a while. Everything worked great until yesterday. Now I get the Days of Wonder splash screen, then the TTR widow opens. It hangs at that point. I tried reinstalling the game and the Intel update. No luck.

Any ideas?

Works for me, and I'm on a mac. Try searching the disk for scratches. Maybe its been damaged.

I have reproduced the issue, and I know how to fix it.
The issue is that Apple has released a new Java virtual Machine version 1.5.0_16 which broke Ticket to Ride.

I'll build a version 1.0.8 of Ticket to Ride today (and I hope it will be available tomorrow) containing a workaround for this version. This process takes some time as I have to check on various platforms that the game is still working.

Meanwhile, a workaround is to play with the Java Virtual Machine 1.4.2, which is available by reordering the Virtual Machines in /Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences
