Next WoW Patch To Address Mac-Specific Issues
6:00 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

The next patch for the World of Warcraft closed beta, the highly-anticipated MMORPG that is being simultaneously developed by industry stalwarts Blizzard Entertainment for both Mac and PC platforms, has been released to the game's current beta testers.

The new patch, which includes several pages of gameplay fixes, also addresses changes to the Mac client in regards to specific graphical shader issues. The next build of Apple's Panther operating system - version 10.3.6 - has been seeded to developers, and, according to the official World Of Warcraft website, Apple, ATI and NVIDIA are currently working with Blizzard on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) drivers:

The Mac OS X client has all shader-based features disabled for this patch. The GUI for those preferences will be grayed out. A number of GPU driver issues are being addressed by Apple, ATI and NVIDIA - when these fixes have been completed and made available to the public we will re-enable these features in the game.
As mentioned above, the new patch includes dozens of other gameplay; to read about all the changes, navigate your browser to the link below:
