After Steam automatically downloaded the new version of Rome 2 (even though it does not work for Mac!) the game refused to launch. So I did my research and went to the Beta section and selected the Patch_17, it was said that this would solve the problem. It did not. So I selected patch_16 still the game immediately crashes upon launching.
I have deleted the game and reinstalled it and nothing changes. I have removed all DLC, nothing changes. I do not have any MODS only released DLC.
This is driving me absolutely insane, this was one of my absolute favorite games and has worked for well over a year on my Mac and suddenly this forced download has ruined it.
