If you are experiencing frequent crashes in Planet Coaster, and you have purchased the game via Steam, please try the following quick fixes first:
- Validate your download of the game by following this guide.
- Switch to Fullscreen mode in the graphics options and disable the Steam overlay for Planet Coaster.
To do so, right-click the game title in your Steam Library, click on "Properties" and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the "General" tab.
- Make sure that your computer is not overheating. The tool HWMonitor can help check the temperatures of individual components under load.
In some cases, Planet Coaster may crash because of a problem with the driver for the graphics card or the operating system itself.
To rule this out, it can help to perform a clean reinstall of the driver and check that your MacOS is up to date.

Drivers for your graphics card and some peripherals must be acquired by the manufacturer's website.
For Nvidia graphics cards, you can get the drivers at www.Geforce.com/drivers.

For Intel graphics cards, you can get the drivers at www.intel.com (Note: Intel does not currently offer graphics cards that meet the minimum requirements for Planet Coaster)
Validated drivers should be provided on the manufacturer's website.
To perform a clean reinstall, it is necessary to uninstall the previously installed graphics card driver before installing the new one.
For Nvidia graphics cards, this can be done automatically. The driver installer has a clean install option that will perform the necessary steps.

Once the old driver has been removed, reboot the computer and install the most recent driver.
