On my iMac (2011, AMD Radeon 6970M 1GB), Quaternion flickers with shaders enabled. The game still functions, I can move the marble, and there is no lag, it is just really hard to see. I don't know what is going on, but a screen recording is attached here .

Try turning the quality down to the lowest setting. Does that affect anything?

On the lowest setting, it shows the screen more of the time (fewer black frames), especially while moving, but it still flickers. When it does show, it looks lower quality.

I'm pretty sure this is an issue with certain graphics cards. It's extremely hard to debug this given that it only happens on specific hardware.

Quaternion v1.1 will have more detailed shader options; until then, you should probably just disable them.
