Graeme Explains OS X 1.30
9:34 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Graeme Devine of id Software updated his .plan file late last night with details about the OS X version of Quake 3 1.30 yesterday. He notes that while everyone should make the upgrade to version 10.1 as soon as possible, the title is playable under 10.0.4 as well. He also notes that Q3A for OS X should always be faster than for OS 9 on the same machine. While we haven't confirmed this on all of our tests, your exprience may well prove this statement true. Here's the full update:

The installer for Mac OS X Quake 3 1.30 went up this morning. Been a super busy day so sorry for the lack of plan file update.

Generally, of course, I advise upgrading to 10.1 for everyone asap. Those with a Powerbook and desktop machines with PCI Rage 128 cards will need at least 10.0.4 to play due to a bug in OpenGL on earlier versions.

Under 10.1 this version will always go faster than the Classic build on the same machine.
