Playing Flare v0.18 (downloaded from your main site - Flarerpg.org) on a 2008 Macbook Pro. However it's been crashing before I even get to the character select screen. Additionally, while messing with the graphic options, the game crashed and now refuses to start at all.
I've been able to player older versions of this game on this computer. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I donated on your main site, so thank you for the game!

Fixed it, I had version 0.15 still installed form the repos. Removing it solved all problems and my save even moved over from it to 0.17!
