Jason Whong of United Developers/MacPlay made the following post to Usenet discussing some known issues with the recently-released demo of Sin, a classic first-person shooter. Here is the post in full:

The following are problems we've been made aware of regarding the Sin demo
(as well as the shipping version of Sin):

the game. Our engineers are investigating the issue, and I'll report back

We're sure a patch will me made available as soon as they address these issues. Thanks to UD for keeping the gamers informed.
