Version 41.1 for OSX was just released. It's a PowerPC program and requires at least a G4 and Nvidia or ATI Radeon graphics. There's no complicated install procedure - just copy the contents of the .dmg to a folder and double-click on scorched3d (in the bin folder). The in-game music was just white noise on my system, but the ambient sounds and sound effects work fine. You can turn off the in-game music thru setup and run iTunes instead.

Download it here Scorched3d

Version 41 adds features such as:-
- New simpler game launcher
- Re-designed dialogs for starting games
- Dragging the landscape will drag the main view
- New chat channel interface
- New improved tank AIs
- Enhanced water effects
- Real-time shadows
- In game Music
- Faster more responsive online communications and less data sent from clients
- Everything in the Scorched world is now interactive and can be destroyed
- Client and server processes have been split to allow headless servers to be built
- More moding options
- And many more additions and fixes.

Version 42 for OSX was released on 2/19/08 here Scorched3d

Better graphics, explosions, etc.

This version is a PowerPC native application. I've run it on G3 and G4, both under OSX 10.4.11 and it works fine. No luck running it on a MacBook under OSX 10.5.x - I get a file missing error message at startup. The program author has tracked the bug down and version 42.1 will be released within a few days.

One piece of good news - this version runs on a G3, while the previous version didn't. I'm hoping it stays that way.

Version 42.1 is out. Now works on Intel Macs running 10.5.x, including those integrated graphics. Still works on G3 and G4 Macs also!

What are you waiting for - start playing  :lol:
