A friend in the UK (running Windows) and I (California based, running Mac) have started a
Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition
campaign about 3 weeks ago on via steam. We haven't had any issues, but last week the game screen would freeze on my mac. The game is saved on my mac and I send him an invite when we play. My internet is gigabit fiber, but it does sometimes fluctuate, but I haven't had any problems on any other multiplayer game on mac or console.
- The game freezes when playing multiplayer with my friend. But only the screen freezes on my mac side. I can still hear gameplay music, can click and interact with things in the game, and my friend has been completelyl unaffected. My screen will freeze and that image stays on the screen tabbing in and out does not refresh the screen. The CPU is barely running and I am only using ~60% RAM.
- The screen freezes 99% of the time during battle, but randomly (i.e. not always during an action on screen. Can happen while "idle"). One time it froze as soon as my friend connected.
- Tried setting all graphics options to low and turning off anything that would increase processing, but the continue persists.
- No other processes are failing on my mac when the screen freezes

Here's a couple example screenshots where the screen froze on the mac side during gameplay. Idk if they're helpful, but I thought it wouldn't hurt.

(as soon as my friend connected)
- Example 2
