Nearly one and a half years after the last update, GraphSim Entertainment surprised us with word of the public beta release of a new patch for Descent 3, the space-based, truly 3D first person shooter developed by Outrage Entertainment.
This small version 1.4.2b1 update is only for the OpenGL version of the game and resolves unspecified issues with nVidia graphics cards.Here's the word from GraphSim:
Update 1.4.2 Beta 1 (OpenGL) updates the Descent 3 for Mac OS 1.4.1 (OpenGL) application program and fixes the compatibility problem associated with NVIDIA graphics cards.The game was planned to be Carbonized for Mac OS X, though there's no word yet if this is a first step in that direction. Descent 3 fans running the game on nVidia cards should head over and grab version 1.4.2b1 now from our sister site, MacGameFiles.
