MWSF: MacPlay Patches Giants Multiplayer, AvP
11:02 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Two new game patches have been released from MacPlay over the past couple of days, updating both Giants: Citizen Kabuto and Aliens versus Predator. The Giants patch adds multiplayer support not available in the boxed release, as well as fixing a few nagging issues in the application. Do keep in mind that the patch is still considered in beta and is unsupported by MacPlay. There is still one remaining issue for those running in 640x480, but Giants fans will definitely give it a look. Here's the scoop on what's different:

Fixes in this patch:
Multiplayer Support Added.
Mouse config stays constant after exiting on 10.1.x systems.
Powerbook G4 Titanium incompatibilities remedied.

Known Issues:
Multiplayer Game Lobby does not display text properly in 640 x 480 resolution.

The download is 4.5MB, so head over to the MacPlay site if you're interested.

The other recent update is a quick 1.1a patch for Aliens verses Predator which just fixes incompatibility created by Apple's latest version of OS X 10.1.2. Grab the 7MB file if you're having difficulties using AvP under this version.
