Bug/Glitch on iMac after adjusting graphics

Posts: 4
Hey everyone!
Just started playing the game, got past Hogger and when I was on the second "tutorial" mission I thought I'd check out the graphics options.
I changed the graphical setting from medium to high and instantly my screen went white with green/red/blue/yellow lines randomly places on the display. I could hear the game sounds, and when I clicked I could tell Im clicking on buttons but I had to Quit the app (command+Q)
Right afterwards a patch downloaded and I'll start it again now and see whether it happens again.

This was on an iMac with a 3.06 GHz i3
4 GB Ram
running 10.8.4 OSX
and an ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB gfx card.

I reset all user preferences from the battle.net launcher, and the game works now, but the textures are all messed up. The cards lack the images, indicators (health/damage) things such as the coin flip at the start also seems invisible, and all the central graphics are also bugged out (the hearthstone logo, or the victory symbol)... so if you have a mac I suggesting not fiddling with graphical settings at the moment!

Try deleting this file :

Your Home folder (Go menu in finder Home) -> Documents -> Library -> Application Support -> Blizzard -> Hearthstone -> options.txt

It appears to have the graphical options in it.

Same issue as OP, but removing the options.txt file allows me to play the game again. Will avoid fiddling with graphical settings until further notice.

I had a similar problem, its fine in windowed mode however (you can set it to high). I haven't tried going back to full screen however.

I've had problems playing on High myself. It plays FINE in Windowed mode, not on Fullscreen, at High, for me.
