Devine on OS X Wolf, DOOM 3
1:04 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Graeme Devine has been a popular fellow the last week with Mac OS X gamers, releasing one build after another of the "MPtest" for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. His latest .plan file update contains not only his reaction to the tremendous flood of feedback he has received on this project, but a hint as to what comes next. Interestingly enough he may take a trip into the past, just for kicks, providing a native Cocoa client for the graphic adventure/puzzle game The 7th Guest -- a classic title by any measure. Here is the full text of his .plan update, provided by Blue's News:
Well, I've been getting a few hundred emails a day from people testing the OS X build of RTCW. Thanks for ALL the feedback, unbelievably positive. I've done my best to keep up with all of you in replying, but this morning, with 413 still unread, it's a wee bit daunting. Thanks also for all the icons, wallpapers, and so forth.Mac OS 10.1 should be available to the general population by the end of this week, if all goes well. Watch this space (and MacGameFiles) for links and mirrors to the full Wolfenstein MPtest when it is made available, and be sure to check our forums for the many threads on the subject which are full of informative discussion.
Graeme Devine's .plan File
I'll be putting up a full public installer today. We've moved the network protocol on internally, which makes making a compatible builds from here on in much harder, but a bunch of the bugs found by the OS X testers helped greatly in tracking down general bugs for all platforms.
It's time for me to get back to DOOM stuff, I've been coding for it under OS X btw, using the builds of 10.1 that Apple has been dropping to me. 10.1 is an excellent OS. I can't wait for MS Office under X native as well.
Next up for my spare time I think I'm going to finish off this little side project.. it's a native Cocoa 7th Guest client that plays the game if you have the CDs. I get a lot of requests for that, and Trilobyte is still around kicking, owned by me and owns all the rights, so perhaps one day something will happen there.
