Elite Force HoloMatch 1.2.1 Update Released
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media has updated the multiplayer "HoloMatch" component of its two Star Trek: Voyager titles, Elite Force and the Elite Force Expansion Pack, to version 1.2.1.

The two updates are intended for use both under Mac OS 8.6 or 9.x with CarbonLib and under Mac OS X. (Note that the new Elite Force HoloMatch update requires the version 1.2 update to have been previously applied. The Elite Force Expansion Pack shipped at version 1.2 and does not require previous updating.)

Here are the changes and issues noted in the "Read Me" files:

Changes in 1.2.1:
  • Compiled with CodeWarrior 7.1.
  • Fixes issue under OS X where the server lists would update slowly and with incorrect ping times.
  • Fixed crash when launching holomatch from within GameRanger.

Known Issues:

  • This update does not fix the "invisible" weapon effects that occur in Internet holomatch games. We are aware of that symptom, but have not been able to isolate the cause as yet. Once we do have a fix, we will release an update for it.
One other interesting Elite Force download from Aspyr is an unsupported mod development kit. It seems that programmers can make Mac modifications with this SDK. Here's an explanation of what it can do:
The original MOD SDK assumes you are developing a MOD on a PC using Microsoft Visual Studio. Most of the tools for compiling QuakeC QVM files from C source exist solely on the PC side. With this MOD kit, you can use CodeWarrior 7 to compile a DLL from your MOD source code. However, if you want to make a cross-platform qvm file that will run on a PC, you must use a PC to do so. The reason is that the QuakeC qvm compiler needs to be ported to the Mac by id Software.
For mod developers who insist on building their mods as Windows-specific DLLs instead of using the cross-platform Quake Virtual Machine (QVM), Aspyr's SDK may provide the means to make their mods available to Mac gamers.

Check out Aspyr's iDisk for all of the downloads.
