Mac Myth III Current Status
10:05 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

In the IMG Forum this morning, MacSoft's Nate Birkholz posted answers to the questions that a number of Mac Myth fans have been asking: What's the development status of Myth III for the Mac, and to what extent will it benefit from the testing being done by owners of the Windows version?


Here's the post in full:

Just so people are up to date, the A-Level bug list for the Mac version is as follows:


1) Random crashes under OS X when using an nVidia card. Traced to GeForce drivers for OS X.

2) Unexplained performance drop under OS X around build 134 (PC gold version).

3) LAN networking broken under OS X.

4) GameSpy broken under OS X.


Mumbo Jumbo has been working hard on getting these issues resolved. While they are working on these, they are fixing the Mac-specific B-level bugs and folding in fixes and tweaks reported from the PC version.

And in a related forum post at Myth Village yesterday, MumboJumbo's Mike Donges is quoted as saying:
Just to clarify, the first PC patch may not be version 1.1. We will probably version the full point releases only if they require cross platform network compatibility. For example, the PC patch and the Mac GM may both be 1.05. Or, the Mac GM may be 1.06 and the PC patch may be 1.05.
