Target Korea Mac Update, Screen Shots
8:42 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Targetware has released a statement announcing the Mac and PC versions of its closed beta for their upcoming flight sim Target Korea are now playing nicely together. The reaction from the Mac testers seems to be one of great approval, and there are even new screen shots of the game taken on a Mac available. Here's an update:

Today, Targetware announced that it had released earlier this week to its
closed beta test team, the first parallel development version of the
software, that permits users on both the Windows and Macintosh systems to
play together, acting as either servers or log-in clients. Immediate
reaction from the Macintosh closed beta community was extremely positive,
demonstrated by a sampling of quotes from Macintosh play testers.


"Yup.. I am kinda in shock, hehehe. 3D on a Mac in this Quality is amazing"

"Online connects work pretty good (pings in the 110s 120s from europe)... "

"BOOOAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! between 40 and 50 fps at 1600x1200.... suuuuper smooth
and excelent image quality!!!! NOW... I am really impressed!!!"


All screen shots were snapped in-game and are un-retouched. They were taken
on a G4 MAC 533 Mhz - 512 MB RAM - NVIDIA Gforce 2MX 32MB.

The links to the two new screen shots are below. If you're wondering exactly what Target Korea is, they have also provided a concise paragraph explaining the game:
The Targetware engine blends an exceptionally secure and unique development
architecture together with direct "hands-on" community participation, in
order to create a 250+ player on-line environment, which essentially has
been designed by the customer base itself. With an open architecture
approach to graphics, flight models, terrains and even servers, Targetware
combines extensibility and customization with a high-fidelity flight
simulator, that insures that everyone is playing by the same rules.
Targetware is the "branding" identifier for the engine and the series of
products that are being built under it. For example, the first of the
series will be titled Target Korea and will feature the Mig 15bis versus the
F86f-30 Sabre. Target Korea is currently undergoing closed beta testing and
is expected to be simultaneously available in open beta for both Windows and
Macintosh systems within 90 days.
We can expect that beta to open up to the rest of the flight sim community later this year. Target Korea sounds like an impressive title to watch, so we'll keep bringing you any new information on its status.
