Alpha Centauri & Sim Theme Park Patches Released
5:58 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media today released patches for Alpha Centauri and the recently released SimTheme Park.



Alpha Centauri 1.5.2b1 is primarily a fix for MacOS 9.1. The beta patch fixes a problem where absolutely black pixels in Alpha Centauri are white. Please note that this is a beta and is not complete.



SimTheme Park 2.04b3 tries to fix the dreaded "Error: Engine Failed to Initialise" bug that crept up in the initial shipping version of the game. The patch also introduces a software renderer for those who don't have a video card capable of running OpenGL. The developer cautions that the software renderer is a bit slow and should only be used as a last resort.



Both files are now mirrored on Macgamefiles.com.
