Quake 3 1.29f Updated for OS X
8:55 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

id Software's Graeme Devine has updated his .plan with word on a new OS X build of their Quake 3 1.29f beta application. Users will need to make the full 25MB download again to get the improved program, which fixes some slowdowns with the sound in the game. Here's his full update with more:

A new Mac OS X 1.29f Beta is in the process of being posted to the id ftp site.

This fixes some os the issues related to the slow sound code in the first release, many of you had written that timedemos were much faster with sound off than on (more than to be expected).

The filename is quake3-macosx-129f-2.dmg

I'm now working on the Classic release.


Head over now to Macgamefiles to start downloading the updated version. Also be on the lookout for a Classic build of 1.29f due out soon.
