Devine Update on Q3A Tools
12:26 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
With all of the news this week surrounding the Mac OS X version of Quake 3: Arena, we thought we might inquire about a different aspect of the game and its community. Id's Graeme Devine has mentioned before that he was thinking of bringing the level-editing tools for Q3A to OS X. Currently, they're only available for Windows, so Mac users can't make their own levels for Quake 3. Also, many titles based on the engine (such as FAKK2 or Elite Force) have released their game-specific code for making modifications, which is another area creative Mac users are missing out on. We asked Graeme if he was still thinking of porting the tools, and he gave us his usual quick response. Here's his reply:
I've worked a bit on the tools. Not enough for them to work yet.. ButWe're sure he's got his plate full of projects with the Team Arena add-on, Doom 3, and other various side projects. A Mac version of the latest Point Release is on the way, and the OS X-native version of Q3A is supposedly soon to follow.
