I am trying to play Empire: Total War Gold Edition (purchased on the Mac App Store) on two different Macs (one with 10.9.5 and one with 10.8.5) using the Local Multiplayer feature of the game.

Whenever we try to launch a sea battle, we are able to select our ships, and go the battle, where we are able to position our ships, but when we try to start the battle, we are prompted with an error of a desync (I don't know the exact wording).

The only solution I have found after Googling around for over an hour was to mirror the graphics settings between the two installs, which we did (on multiple presets). We are also running the same screen resolution, and are both signed out of Game Center.

Any suggestions to fix this?

  • Wired or wireless? – Brok3n Oct 19 '14 at 3:42
  • We tried both (not wired directly, but wired to a router) – zwork Oct 19 '14 at 6:31
  • Do you know if the ip addresses are static(fixed), or dynamic? – Brok3n Oct 19 '14 at 6:44
  • I suggest, try static IP's. – Brok3n Oct 19 '14 at 6:44
  • The external IP is global, the internal IPs are static – zwork Oct 19 '14 at 6:45
