Mac Rune Patch, EAX Info
2:58 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

HumanHead has released a patch for the PC version of the Viking slasher Rune, fixing a number of issues and adding many features. The 1.06 patch deals with many multiplayer bugs and even includes a new model to play as. Here's just a portion of the list of changes from the official RuneGame web site:


- TrialPit slowdown bug

- Don't hurt teammates when you land on them

- DarkDwarf didn't attack players using spirit powerup

- Taunt only once bug
- Swapping magic shield bug


- New player model: Jun

- Shields block thrown weapons

- Attacking blocks thrown weapons
As is often the case, this patch must be ported to work with the Mac version of Rune by the team that did the original conversion, Westlake Interactive. We contacted them about this and asked if the patch would be ported by itself or with the upcoming Rune expansion pack. Here's what president Mark Adams had to say:
We're supposed to get the code as part of the expansion code, so we'll probably do that all at once.
This should hopefully be soon, since the Mac version of the Rune expansion, Halls of Valhalla will be out shortly after its PC counterpart. We'll keep you posted on any changes.

Also, those with the much-anticipated Soundblaster Live! cards will probably be anxious to know about an EAX version of Rune. Mark has also confirmed with us that they will roll the new sound features into the upcoming patch/expansion as well.
