Harpoon3 OS X Fix
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Harpoon3 developer Jesse Spears recently emailed IMG with word on a new update for the Mac OS X version of the title. Apparently there were a few show-stopping bugs in the last version which didn't affect either the classic or Windows versions, but did necessitate a new version for OS X. Details on the fixes follow:

It fixes two fairly serious bugs, both side effects of fixing the "game not pausing" problem fixed in 3.4.8:

1. If you were playing without "Enforce Real Time" turned on, and you paused the game, you couldn't unpause it (fixed in

2. If you had movies playing, once one played the game would never start running again (the Game clock pauses while videos are being played because no other screen updates can happen while a movie is playing). This was fixed in (the current version).

Head to the Harpoon3 site now to grab the latest update for Mac OS X.
