Postal 2 Patched for Intel Macs
7:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Following close on the heels of the Intel-compatible version of Unreal Tournament 2004, Ryan Gordon has again updated his .plan with news that the UT-based Postal 2 has also been patched to support Apple's new line of iMacs.

Additionally, the patch fixes a number of other Mac-specific issues with the game and adds support for the Apocalypse Weekend expansion pack. Here's a breakdown of the changes:

# Postal 2 is now a "Universal" (PowerPC and Intel) binary.
# Stencil buffer support added (fixes mirrors not reflecting).
# Other rendering fixes and enhancements from UT2004.
# Fixed some memory corruption crashes.
# Updated OpenAL (again) with several (more) fixes.
# Disabled mmap() for file i/o (fixes out of memory issues).
# Fixed karma crashes, usually seen in Apocalypse Weekend.
# Updated OpenAL with several fixes.
# Launching a dedicated server from the game now works.
# Apocalypse Weekend support (expansion pack sold seperately!)
Head over to MGF now to download the patch.
