Harpoon3 Hits 3.3.6b2
10:24 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Fans of Jesse Spears's naval warfare simulation Harpoon3 may recall an update made earlier this week that addressed a bug in the game that caused it to randomly crash when attempting to save a game in Mac OS X. Though the earlier update was intended to fix this bug, it apparently didn't iron out all the problems.

Spears, ever on top of things, has updated Harpoon3 yet again to squash this bug:

The crash-when-saving-in-OS X bug wasn't completely fixed. I thought it was, but a user reported it again, and sure enough when I looked, there was yet another bad thing™ happening in the Nav Dialog setup code (forgot to fill in a few fields). This was a random problem: sometimes it crashed, sometimes it worked fine, sometime the OK and Cancel buttons had garbage in them (I never did get it to crash, but I did see the garbage a lot).
The patch, which works on versions 3.3.6 and 3.3.6b1, is available at the official H3 site for those that wish to download it.

And for users of Harpoon3 on classic Mac OS, Spears on Wednesday released version 3.3.6 to correct a minor cosmetic bug involving the resizing of ZoomWindows.

In related news, Spears is currently searching for an OS X-native patch/update program. If anyone knows of one, feel free to contact Spears and let him know.
