MacPlay AvP Chat Logs
9:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

An unedited transcript from yesterday's GameRanger chat with the team at MacPlay has been posted at The question and answer session revolved mainly around their upcoming release of Aliens versus Predator, though some of the company's other titles were also briefly discussed as well. The AvP topics included what hardware configuratiuon is supported, why the graphics aren't up to speed with Quake 3,and how and why the Mac demo is different from the PC demos (those with good memories will remember the PC version was actually split up into four parts):

Was the demo we got the same demo PC gamers got way back when?

[CE] Burger: No, this is not the same demo

[CE] Burger: The PC demos were made before the game was finished

[CE] Burger: and Fox made 4 specific

[CE] Burger: demos, Alien only, Predator Only, Marine Only

[CE] Burger: and DeathMatch Only.

[CE] Burger: I created a single demo that had all 4.

Read through the rest of the chat for good information on AvP and other MacPlay games. As an aside, Baldur's Gate II's delay has been attributed to problems with OS X, not any legal issues; regardless we have been assured by the MacPlay team recently that this RPG will be on store shelves before the end of the month.
