The following are problems we've been made aware of regarding the Sin demoWe're sure a patch will me made available as soon as they address these issues. Thanks to UD for keeping the gamers informed.
(as well as the shipping version of Sin):
* Non - English Mac OS:
Many international customers are reporting that they can't control
the game. Our engineers are investigating the issue, and I'll report back
to this forum when I learn more.
* 3DFX cards:
Users of 3DFX cards are experiencing weird video-related bugs when
attempting to run in 800x600 or higher.. The problem is with the 3DFX OpenGL
renderer, as far a s we can tell. To fix the problem, run the game in
640x480 mode ONLY. Or, try a video card from another manufacturer, or
using your Mac's built-in video capabilities.
Summary: If you're not using an English Mac OS system, save yourself a
download until we come up with a fix. If you've got a 3DFX card, stick to
