OS 9.1 Causes Glitches with Alpha Centauri
9:26 AM | Jay Swartzfeger | Comment on this story

Gamers have reported on Usenet and other discussion forums that updating to OS 9.1 causes various glitches with Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri.



Overall, the glitches don't seem to be too serious, and are only cosmetic in nature. Glitches noticed by IMG staff include black areas on the main menu turned white, black areas on the map are also inverted, the base size is unreadable because the size tag is turned white, and a few menu redraw problems exist as well. None of the glitches appear to affect actual gameplay, however.



SMAC fans may want to wait to update to OS 9.1 until Aspyr releases a patch to fix the glitches; we're sure Brad Oliver of Westlake Interactive is hard at work on this problem as of this minute.
