Mac Team Arena Today?
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

id Software's resident Mac-man Graeme Devine has made a few interesting posts to the Quake3World forums recently. It seems the testing on the Mac build of the game is going well, and a version of both the 1.27g for Quake 3 and the Team Arena application and demo could be available sometime today. Here is his original post:

I posted a new beta mac build (1.27g and TA executable) up for testers to bash on, if this version looks good then I'll wrap it up in an installer and call it public beta!
Then later in the day he responds to a tester's situation, noting a build and demo will be ready to go soon. Here's an excerpt from a number of small posts:
Okay, it looks like we're good to go. I'll put up an installer for 1.27g in the morning

This will still be a beta release, as I'm not done yet with the GameRanger support.

I'll package up the demo tomorrow as well.

The 1.27g is compatible with Team Arena. I'll write an installer that takes the PC CD-ROM and does an install from there using that.

if you have the PC version, you'll be playing TA [Tuesday].

Sounds like great news for Mac gamers itching to get their hands on the demo of the Team Arena add-on. Keep in mind that to play the full version you'll need both Quake 3: Arena and the full PC version of Team Arena. Look for the all of this to appear on Macgamefiles as soon as they're released.
