Alright so I’ve owned this game for about a year now, and I’ve been able to play it perfectly fine until about 3 months ago. It’s just not launching at all anymore from steam. Whenever I click play, the BL2 Icon starts bouncing on my dock, and a small new window opens saying:’ “Borderlands 2” Checking ', with a progress bar that’s at about 5% I’d say, it just stays at 5% most of the time before the window just quits by itself , sometimes when I try launching it gets to 40% before it quits. After the window quits, BL2 isn’t bouncing on my dock anymore at all and tells me that the App isn’t reacting. So basically I can’t even get to the launcher or any screen at all from the game, it’s just not launching.
Here’s a list of what I have done so far to try and solve the issue:
- Restart my Mac
- Multiple times have I verified the integrity of the game files.
- Went to launch options in steam and used the “-NoLauncher” command
- Reinstalled BL2
- Reinstalled Steam
- Reset my entire Mac
So basically I don’t know what to do anymore, I feel like I’ve tried everything. BL2 is my favourite game and I’d love to be able to play it again, so please help me.
Here are my specs:

Processor 1.4 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
