Elegant Chaos Speaks Up on Black and White
10:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
MacNN posted a story yesterday regarding the status of a Mac port for Black and White,
currently one of the hottest titles out for the PC as well as one of the most wanted
for Mac users. As IMG has posted earlier, Elegant Chaos is the development house
rumored to be working on the port. However, many Mac users who were unhappy with the buggy status
of one of EC's previous ports (Sim Theme Park) were worried that a port of B&W would
also suffer a similar fate, and voiced their concerns on MacNN's forums.
Interestingly enough, these posts did not go unnoticed by EC. An employee of EC, Sam Deane,
has responded to those posts with this message:
I can't officially comment on the B&W story, but I can say two things about Sim Theme Park / ThemeFor those wondering if a possible port by EC would suffer in quality, hopefully Deane's comments will alleviate concerns. It's
The first is that development on STP/TPW is not at an end. A patch will be released that addresses
outstanding stability issues and improves general performance. As a previous poster mentioned, an
important part of this process is that we get the feedback that we need, so send it in!
The second, more general, point is that it would be fair to say that a number of lessons have been learnt
from the STP/TPW port, both by Elegant Chaos and by Feral. I can't say everything I'd like to on that
score, but suffice to say that nobody should worry about the same thing happening in the future.
interesting enough that he saw and commented on MacNN's story and reader postings regarding such an issue.
