Return to Dark Castle Beta 8 Adds OS X Support
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Z Sculpt has released another public beta version of Return to Dark Castle, adding support for Mac OS X to this classic title. Delta Tao will now publish Return to Dark Castle; the third game in the very popular series which stretches back to some of the first Macs.
While version 1.0b8 brings with it OS X support, there are a few caveats. It seems the game's older 8-bit technology might not be jiving well with OS X:
- 8-bit color in Mac OS X is a BEAST. There are a lot of ugly color palette issues right now when the menubar or dialog boxes are shown. Although this may not be entirely fixable, we're working to make it look as good as possible for the final product. Please bear with us.
- There is an occasional crash while going between levels.
- Mac OS X 10.1.3 has a problem with showing the menubar.
For those wanting to beta test in Mac OS X, head over to MacGameFiles and grab the 6.6 MB download.
