Red Faction 1.2 Beta 2 Released
9:15 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

GraphSim has released a new beta of Red Faction 1.2, bringing it to beta 2. The company released beta 1 a few weeks ago, the first publically available Mac OS X-native version.

Here's a list of fixes from the read me for Red Faction 1.2 beta 2:

  • Update for multi-player mode to allow internet play against the Windows Red Faction 1.2.
  • Significant speed increase for Mac OS 8 and 9.
  • New application that runs natively under OS X.
  • Fixed key-down on launch to show the startup dialog—now "Control" key.
  • Fixed problem with save games and "period" (.) characters in the volume or folder name.
  • Added smoother mouse response.
The patch weighs in at 1.8 MB and includes two applications: an application for Mac OS 9 and a Carbonized application for Mac OS X. To install the patch, simply download the file, extract it, then place both apps into your Red Faction folder. There's also a small data file you'll need to put into the Red Faction "data" folder. After that, you're good to go.

To download the patch, head over to our sister site, MacGameFiles. If you find any bugs with this latest beta, you can e-mail the details to support@graphsim.com. Have fun!
