MWSF: Devine Talks About Wolfenstein & Punks
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
It was recently announced by id Software that an anti-cheating program named PunkBuster was going to be put in place in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. At Macworld Expo, IMG asked id designer Graeme Devine about the announcement. Devine explained that since the issues PunkBuster addresses aren't even a problem on the Macintosh, Mac users shouldn't worry about it:
Well, cheating is not really a Macintosh issue. We need to put in code to allow Mac Clients to join PB servers, but that's in the main source and not in the few system files.Westlake Interactive president Glenda Adams told us Duane Johnson would be working on anything appropriate that needed to be ported. Mac users can be heartened that when the game is released, there shouldn't be any obstacles in the way of connecting to cheat-free servers. We'll keep you updated with any developments.
Publisher Aspyr Media and Westlake are currently shooting to have Return to Castle Wolfenstein released for Mac OS 9 and X by the end of the month. For more information on PunkBuster, check out an interview with Even Balance's Tony Ray for the full scoop on what the program will do.
