Last night we reported on a patch released for Sid Meyer's Alpha Centauri that fixed the game's issues with Apple's OS 9.1 update. Aspyr made this patch available thanks to the work of Brad Oliver at Westlake Interactive. Oliver later posted to Usenet that more problems will be fixed in another patchm to be released soon. He recognized the following issues which he's working on fixing currently:
Don't break out the bubbly yet - there are still some minor issues with While most of the issues may be minor, at least you know Oliver is already on the job and aware of the problems. For now, give the 1.5.2b1 patch released yesterday a try and we'll let you know when anything new arrives.

that patch. Hopefully I'll have it all sorted out by the end of the
week. Current problems:
University draws as black instead of white
Some button lists draw with white text instead of black
Credits scroll looks a little goofy
Arrows in base window have white highlights instead of black
(SMACX) Faction picker graphics have white artifacts
I've got most of these fixed since the build I sent Aspyr yesterday, but
I want to make sure I've got everything. If you see anything in this
beta patch that I didn't mention above, let me know.
