Night Dive Studios release source code for System Shock, MacOS 9

07 April 2018 - 10:42 PM

Night Dive Studios, Incorporated have released, under GPL, the source code for System Shock for MacOS 9.

I haven't run across this in any news source, feel free to delete if I'm wrong.

An excerpt from the Github page;



Copyright 2015-2018, Night Dive Studios, Incorporated.

This file contains the following sections:

GENERAL NOTES LICENSE
GENERAL NOTES
Game data and patching:

This source release does not contain any game data, the game data is still covered by the original EULA and must be obeyed as usual.
Compiling on MacOS 9:

A project file for Metrowerks Codewarrior is provided in ShockMac/Shock.µ

You will need a PowerPC to build the Mac version of System Shock. Fortunately, there are emulators out there that are able to run PowerPC Mac Applications, like SheepShaver. You also need Metrowerks CodeWarrior 10 Tools to build the project and Stuffit Expander to unpack the project files and source code. The game was initially built with an older version of CodeWarrior, but we tested it with CW 10 Gold Tools (IDE 1.7) and it was able to build a working executable. Things you will need:

•   A PowerMac or an emulator like SheepShaver;
•   CodeWarrior for PowerPC (CW 10 Gold Tools works)
•   The original Mac System Shock data.



Anyone following through on this might want to fulfill a long standing wish of mine to update Arashi to run on present day macOS. Thanks! :rolleyes:

BATTLETECH

Take command of your own mercenary outfit of 'Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war.



Unfortunately macOS system requirements are scarce and I take that as not being a comforting sign. Video description states Windows PC in April, Steam listing and website make macOS references.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Portal Power

15 December 2017 - 01:44 AM

I just came across Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Portal Power game on Steam, available for macOS (El Capitan minimum) and PC. From a quick search on YouTube it seems to have first appeared as a mobile app so I've no idea if anything's very different or if it's a good game. From what I've watched, it doesn't come across as being nearly as exciting as the coin-op beat-'em up from years ago. I might buy it to have some fun with the family.
