Elite Force Testers Needed for SMP Patch
8:36 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Westlake Interactive's Brad Oliver recently made a quick post to the IMG Forums asking for testers for a new Star Trek: Voyager — Elite Force patch.

Since Elite Force is based on the Quake 3 engine, it will take advantage of two CPUs under Mac OS X. Unfortunately, a number of users with dual-processor machines have noted instability when trying to run the game in SMP mode. Oliver now has a patch he wants them to try, since he was never able to reproduce it on his end:

OK, I _think_ I've fixed the SMP bug with Elite Force causing crashes and lockups for some people with DP Macs. Since I was never able to reproduce it, I'd like someone who had big trouble with r_smp enabled to let me know if I've finally nailed this. Please e-mail me at bradman@pobox.com if you suffered and have a DP box running OS X.
If you're a gamer having this problem, be sure to drop him a note to get the latest beta patch and let Oliver know whether it helps.
