Workaround for OS X Crashes in Elite Force XPack
11:13 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
MacFixIt reports that, according to Mac OS X gamer Joseph Prisco, Aspyr tech support are finding that the multiprocessor code in their recently released Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force Expansion Pack can cause kernel panics on dual-processor Macs under OS X, and they describe how to disable the problematic multiprocessor support:
I was having frequent kernel panics and crashes when I tried playing this game under Mac OS X on my 450 DP system. I was told by Aspyr tech support that "We are finding that the multiprocessor code seems to be causing some problems, including the symptom you mention about the Escape key causing a crash. To correct it for now, disable the code as follows: Open the 'efconfig.cfg' file in a text editor, locate the line starting with 'seta r_smp,' and change the value at the end of this line from 1 to 0 (zero). That should take care of it for now. The programmer is investigating, and hopes to have a fix soon."We'll be sure to let you know as soon as a patch is released to restore full multiprocessor support.
