KOTOR, Homeworld 2 Updated
8:10 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media's internal development team have posted patches for the popular Star Wars-themed role playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, as well as Homeworld 2, the real time strategy title set in space.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which takes place four thousand years prior to the first of the Star Wars films, sees players traveling between seven enormous worlds and interacting with new Star Wars characters in the ages-old battle between Jedi and the evil forces of the Sith. As with all Star Wars-themed game titles, the fate of the universe rests on player's shoulders.

The 1.0.3b patch fixes a screen resolution issue, and addresses a leftover bug from the PC code that crashes the system when trying to save and load a game simultaneously - pressing F4 and F5 at the same time, which is easier to do with Powerbooks than it sounds.

Homeworld 2 continues the struggle of the nomadic exiled Hiigaran tribe as they get chased around the galaxy by a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy. The sequel chronicles the travels of Hiigaran leader Karan S'jet on his mission to see the clan's Mothership survive the battle against this new foe and return the exiled group home safely.

Bringing the application's version number up to 1.1.1, the update fixes problems with multiplayer gaming over the internet, fixes the random startup crash issue, and adds additional support for mouse speed settings.

Both patches are being hosted by IMG's sister site MacGameFiles, and can be accessed through the links below.
