Harpoon3 Update, Harpoon4 Pics
12:57 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Jesse Spears sent word this weekend of an update to his perpetual project, Harpoon3. For those unfamiliar with the title, Harpoon3 is a naval warfare simulation set in real time that features a graphical user interface and in-game movies of real combat units in action.

The update, which brings the game up to version 3.4.13, addresses two problems:

The main fix is the SAM mount “underflow” bug. I fixed a number of places that might have been causing it, and the problem seems to be gone in the test scenario I have for the problem.

Also, there were some fixes for the Mac version (one a potential crash bug in the OS X version... was reported under a Beta build of Jaguar, but the problem could be happening under the current release).

In addition to the recent update, Spears has also posted a slew of screenshots from the upcoming Harpoon4. The shots, which were taken behind closed doors, show off the current Harpoon4 build in action, including the Formation Editor and various dialog windows.

Also posted are various pictures taken from the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo. The Harpoon3 update can be found at our sister site, MacGameFiles. The E3 pics, including the Harpoon4 shots, can be found at the Harpoon3 web site.
