There are no known issues with the Mac Intel build besides its being unable to play the intro and outro movies:
Most of the problems in Windows Oni can be solved by using the C-Daodan or by updating your drivers, but see below for more details.
There are a lot of reasons why the PC (Win32) version of Oni can go completely crazy. The single most common symptom is that Oni's window will go blank, and in the middle of your screen you'll have
There are several occasions on which Oni exits with such a message. The main issue was solved with the introduction of the Daodan DLL. However, if Oni still "blam"s at startup, this page contains a thorough list of things that cause Oni to "blam".
For any other problem, see below.
There are several degrees of severity (from crappy textures to ugly textures to OMFG). That's always a driver issue. Try and get a recent driver for your GFX card (upgrade to Catalyst if you have an ATI, etc.). But sometimes, Oni is incompatible with modern stuff. Try and get a really old driver, then :)
- Power management
This can be a problem on notebooks. Under certain conditions, the performance of the computer will decrease dramatically, for example :
- if you run on battery power
- if you let the computer overheat
- Driver issue
First let's make sure that your graphic card have direct 3d and AGP accelerations enabled. Click in start, execute, write dxdiag, and press ok. You will see now diverse information about your directX and your computer hardware/software, click in display, now check direct3d/agp acceleration. If it is off try enable it, if it is impossible enable, you graphic card may have not have this option or windows is using you card as pci instead of agp. In this case try update or install all your motherboard drivers.
Now, if it is all enabled like in the picture above, try install or update your graphics drivers, don't use that ones that come with the Windows. If you have a Nvidia card and if it is old (like geforce 2 or Riva), I recommend you install an older driver. My recommendation is one from the 28.x and 60.x. range, this ones seemed to work better at my old card.

Not really a problem, but it can be a bit annoying when your ONI window gets auto-stretched to fit a 16:10 screen.
- Run ONI with the -noswitch command line argument. Oni then runs in a "window" in the upper left corner of your screen, with the resolution selected in Options.
- If you want that window centered with a black background behind it, use OniWindowMover.
The main solution to this seems to be forcing v-sync in your graphics card settings. See HERE for more details on the problem and other possible solutions.
