Mac Baldur recently caught up with Duane Johnson, the programmer responsible for the upcoming Baldur's Gate multiplayer patch and the Mac port of the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack. Duane previously worked with GraphSim on the Descent 3 port, and was recently brought on to help with the inordinate amount of work that can go into a port such as Baldur's Gate. Duane was kind enough to break away from his coding to give Mac Baldur an update on his progress. Here's a clip:
