We have discovered the root of the problem most mac users are currently experiencing with mismatches.

The mac is currently only showing outdated servers in steam, while the client itself is actually updated (but showing the wrong version number).

You can work around this by joining a server via the Steam server browser. We are working to get a fix readied to address the issue and are discussing what we can do for mac users internally.

At least in our case, using this approach only nets us lvl 0 perks (and probably no achievements either), so I guess having the wrong version reported ingame does mess with steam.

What about the rest of the problems? How about the problems in the actual game? Perks don't work anywhere, and the error message "Unknown Steam Error Is Preventing Access To This" ?
the game has to work before we can connect to the servers.

still doesnt work

still doesnt work

we joined a server via steam as you said and still the same problems (i.e perks, etc), we will just have to wait for the updated fix hopefully ASAP. Please... also extend the halloween event since we been having to deal with this problem for almost a week now with delayed and very few support responses....you have many angry KF addicts that need to play.

Is this just a fix to let us play, or can we get achievements? I tried a server, and I couldn't get the big hunt cheive.

It really makes it pointless to try and rush something out if we aren't going to have it in time to get the skins, which is my main goal. I want that lovely Chicken Commando, and just because I play on a mac, I have been unable to do so.

Yes I can connect to a server via the steam server browser. But when I do I join a game without any of my perks (starting at level 0) and I suppose without access to any of the achievements so we can't access the halloween event...

As other people have mentioned, when trying to access the achievements/perks page we get the error: Unknown Steam Error Is Preventing Access To This

Yes, thanks for that fix. But I'm pretty sure all of us mac played still can't access our perks and levels, which is a bigger issue for me since I already had several servers in my Favorites

What fix?

What fix?

I'm still unable to access profile information, see achievements, or connect to any multiplayer servers.

Like everyone else, I completely missed the Halloween event as a result of this. :(

We hope to have the fix ready shortly. We are discussing the possibility of extending the event or having it return more quickly then we had planned.
