Aspyr will need to port it.

When 1.4 came out for the PC, it was at least a couple weeks before the 1.4beta came out for Mac, and then another week or so before the final 1.4 came out.

Still no news... Ugh. The good news is, my 1.41 server (BioHazardBandits) is constantly filling up with people who haven't upgraded to 1.51.  :D The bad news is pickin's are slim when you're looking for 1.41 servers.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Activision has to approve the patch prior to release (or did in the past) and their reputation there proceeds them (remeber RtCW?).  We can always hope that Activision has improved in this aspect and we won't have to wait forever.

Yep, Activision delayed the 1.4 CoD patch for the Mac too.

But, I'm not sure on this, I think Aspyr can release a beta version, like they did with 1.4, before Activision's approval.

Received this email from Aspyr tech support today:

Thank you for your interest in Call of Duty.
We are working on a patch for all of our CoD MP users, please check the website for updates.

Doesn't tell us much really, except it's being worked on.

At least these forums are back up.  So much easier to keep tabs on these kinds of things.

You normally wouldn't get news of this nature on a weekend.  Your best bet to find breaking news on this patch would be on the IMG website news page on a weekday.

Oops, I didn't notice there were two.  Rather than merging the two, I locked the other one that went a bit off topic and left a link to this thread.

We've actually now received code for the 1.5b version and are integrating it into the Mac.  We decided to skip 1.5 when we found out Activison had another patch in the works. As soon as 1.5b goes final on the PC we should be able to get a Mac patch out quickly, since we already have the code.

Sorry for the delays,

Every week that goes by with the Mac community stuck in the obsoleted version makes the Mac community more and more of a laughing stock in the games and on non-Mac forums. A couple weeks isn't that bad, but when it starts spreading this long, it starts looking bad.

I'm not voicing personal discontent nor necessarily directing this comment at Glenda. But heck, it needs to be respectfully said by somebody.

The last time CoD was patched also became a joke, and we were the butt. I'm glad Aspyr released an "unofficial beta" to expedite the Mac community getting the patch in that instance, and I hope they can do so again if Activision is going to contribute to the delay like they did last time.

It's out already.  I think she means that when it gets out of beta (1.5b).  I wonder if they'll call it 1.6, or what.... 1.5.2?

Anyway, I kinda blame this one on the PC guys... they shouldn't have released a buggy patch.

...I guess the 1.5 patch had a bug where people could crash servers.   :lol:

Thanks for the update; I have to say, it's really nice when you let us know what's going on.

We're waiting with (emptied servers) :( bated breath.

Oh I took it to mean that they passed on 1.5 for mac but that are going to do 1.5b when its released for the peecee??

I'm just a humble prepress guy and not to adept at software releases...unless you count those bas*&rds at Quark...why I oughta...sorry, still pissed about ver 6.0 :D

All kidding aside its to bad they couldnt have done a beta version like they did with 1.4.

They (Aspyr) may not have done a beta for the 1.5 patch because soon after there were complaints against it on various CoD forums on, I guess, the PC side.  But you're right, hopefully, there will be a beta release of this forthcoming version of the 1.5 patch.  Than watch out, you'll see me with a lead finger on that machine gun.   :lol:   Sometimes, I'm such a MP noob.   :rolleyes:
