Mac Star Trek: DS9 Due Soon
10:42 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Simon and Schuster's third-person adventure game Star Trek: Deep Space 9 is nearly complete for Mac OS, after several delays. We spoke to The Collective's Doug Hare about the Mac version, which was initially intended to be a simultaneous release but ran into several technical roadblocks. He previously told us that they were waiting for the Miles Sound System to be updated for Mac, and it seems this is still the case. The PC version of this game used MP3 files for music playback, an option that did not exist in the Mac codebase for the Unreal Tournament engine (upon which the title was built). Thus they had to rely on a third party's music playback system to patch music playback into the port, and the Mac version of Miles is not yet complete.


Hare has confirmed that the game is finished apart from the sound system. Here are Hare's latest details:

Not much to report, we're still waiting. However I believe that it may be
ready within a week or two.
Read our preview of this title and our interview with The Collective, just to refresh your memory. We're sure Trek fans that enjoyed Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force will be eager to add yet another Trek-themed title to their game library.
