PC [HELP] Multiplayer Game Keeps Crashing on Mac


Hi! Thanks in advance for any help/guidance! My sister and I are trying to play multiplayer stardew and we are able to connect using an invite code, but each time we try to play a day it seems to randomly crash. We are both using macs and when I try to host, sometime during the day (once at ~6pm another time ~12:50pm) the mac spinning rainbow circle pops up and the game freezes. My sister then receives a message that says the connection failed/lost connection to the server. The hosting computer stays frozen with the spinning circle and no buttons work. The only way to close the game is via a force quit. The crash doesn't seem tied to any specific game events/locations/etc.

We absolutely love this game, but it's impossible to even get through a full day without it crashing. Does anybody have any ideas or fixes? We aren't using any mods and are playing through steam. Thank you!

Is it possible your internet might be the issue? Have you tried some solutions listed out here?

I hope you can get back to playing normally with your sister!
