ATI Update Coming for OS 9.2.1?
4:35 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A recent post to the MacBaldur forums by Chris Jacobson of MumboJumbo reveals new plans for a driver update from ATI for users of Mac OS 9.2.1. While no time frame has been given (and never is, with Apple and ATI traditionally keeping such details well under wraps), this is good news for those 9.2.1 users experiencing graphical glitches or slowdowns.
While users have found these problems in Baldur's Gate II, another source recently confirmed seemingly similar issues. Developer David Wareing, working on Deimos Rising, noticed a significant drop in framerates for his game in 9.2.1 verses 9.1. While Deimos Rising is still in the late beta phase, we hope the ATI update might fix his problems as well.

In somewhat related news, Jacobson is also looking for anyone still using Mac OS X 10.0.4 to help him out with troubleshooting. Apparently the game ran very well under this version of the OS, while under 10.1 it suffers from significant slowdowns. For more info on what he needs, check out the thread linked to below.
