Troubleshooting Tips

Despite our best efforts, sometimes things don’t go as smoothly as we’d like when it comes to gaming.

If you’re having issues with Fortnite on your Mac, here are a few troubleshooting tips to try:

  1. Make sure your Mac meets the minimum system requirements. As I discussed earlier, Fortnite requires at least an Intel Core i3 2.4 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM, 70 GB of storage, and an Intel HD 4000 graphics card. If your Mac doesn’t meet these requirements, you may experience issues while playing the game.
  2. Close any unnecessary applications running in the background. If you have a lot of applications open, it can slow down your system and cause issues with the game. Close any applications that you’re not currently using to free up resources for Fortnite.
  3. Update your graphics drivers. Outdated graphics drivers can cause issues with games, so it’s a good idea to make sure you have the latest drivers installed. You can check for updates by going to the manufacturer’s website or by using a tool like Driver Easy.
  4. Check for updates to the game. Sometimes issues can be resolved by simply updating the game to the latest version. To check for updates, open the Epic Games Launcher and look for a “Update Available” banner. Click on the banner to start the update process.

I hope these tips help resolve any issues you’re having with Fortnite on your Mac.
