Scenario Software today announced the release of iPoker 4.0, a complete rewrite of the game that now includes Universal Binary support for Mac OS X. For a limited time, the version 4.0 is a free upgrade for iPoker 3 customers.
For a limited time, this is a free upgrade for iPoker 3 customers.To check out iPoker 4.0, head over to Macgamefiles.com to download the game.
Universal Binary version runs natively on newer Intel-based Macs and older PowerPC-based Macs. If you're curious, iPoker 4 is built with Xcode and iPoker 3 was built with CodeWarrior.
Converted from Pascal (a procedural language) to C++ (an object-oriented one). This constitutes a major rewrite of code that is as much as 20 years old, and it lays the groundwork for future work.
New Quartz graphics in the Standings window. This is just the start of a migration away from QuickDraw.
Improved HTML-based report windows (using Web Kit now).
Experimental French localization. I just used SYSTRAN so this will probably be amusing to those who speak French. If you're fluent in English, another major language and poker jargon, let's talk.
Hundreds of minor improvements.
Please note that due to the scope of this project, the goals of iPoker 4 are modernization and parity with iPoker 3's feature set. Please use the Send Feedback command on iPoker's Help menu to submit any bug reports.
Requires Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) or later.
Still uses iPoker 3 Activation Codes.
Will not interfere with an iPoker 3 installation.
Does not include the wooden Table Surface options, because Mac OS X 10.4 does not yet correctly byte-swap large 'ppat' resources on Intel-based Macs. (This bug has been reported to Apple.)
