In Topic: MacOS 10.14 - Mojave

Today, 01:51 AM

Hey, I'm noticing that in-game chatting doesn't work in ANY game with Mojave, even if I allow the app permission. I've a USB mic/headset that works with the macOS fine (Input tab under Sound Control Panel detects it fine, Voice Memo app records fine) but it doesn't show up as even connected in Black Ops 3 or Fortnite.

I'm searching the web now and am finding that, unfortunately, it appears to be a widespread problem since people have upgraded to Mojave.

What an absolutely stupid thing to allow by QA! :cool:

Transistor is free on the Epic Games Store. I already own the games they've been giving away, which isn't bad because I have impeccable taste. :P

MoltenVK Now Supports Vulkan Tessellation On macOS, Other Features

The crew working on the open-source MoltenVK layer that allows for Vulkan to run on macOS/iOS by remapping the calls to use Apple's Metal drivers just picked up a lot more capabilities.

Headlining the new MoltenVK v1.0.34 release that was issued on Friday is support for tessellation. Vulkan tessellation support can now work on Macs! The new MoltenVK release also adds support for VK_KHR_get_surface_capabilities2 and VK_EXT_host_query_reset. On the extension front is also updated support for VK_KHR_swapchain.

MoltenVK 1.0.34 also corrects function entry point handling, tracking device features enabled during the vkCreateDevice() call, fixes for potential memory leaks, greater precision within shader float constants, and a wide variety of fixes.

More details on the hefty upgrade to this Vulkan-over-Metal iOS/macOS library can be found via the release post from GitHub.

Just an update of the BlOps3 online—playing during the day you'll definitely be getting some solid gaming in…middle of the night (late night, East Coast time for reference), it's a ghost town. It's fun, still very fluid, I'm convinced there's a cheater or two but some of these guys have been on for the last few years and I'm not the best.
