Neverwinter Nights Mac Status Update
12:39 PM | Scott Turner | Comment on this story
Bioware, developer of Neverwinter Nights, has posted a new update concerning the Mac version of the game. Included are issues with the new Mac OS X version 10.2.3, their QA testing, and a report on their MacWorld San Francisco attendance this year.
OS 10.2.3 has provided some interesting challenges for us as everything under 10.2.2 that was working has suddenly broke, including all the models basically disappearing from the game. Weird. We will solve this in the new year.They go on to note that the new texture compression features in 10.2.3 will help the game out greatly once they resolve the above issues. Gamers attending Macworld San Francisco in two weeks will be able to see for themselves:
Good news about 10.2.3 is S3 texture compression which brings this feature to the Mac that we were already benefiting from under Linux and Windows.The Canadian Bioware team had originally slated the Mac version of Neverwinter Nights to be released late in 2002, but this will obviously be pushed out into early next year. Stay tuned for more from IMG through Macworld and beyond on this impressive 3D RPG.
Mac Version NWN Update
Watch for Neverwinter Nights at MacWorld San Francisco. If you ever wanted to play Neverwinter Nights with an authentic BioWare employee, this will be your chance. Normally, we would not be able to attend because our Canadian bodies cannot stand the dramatic climate change from winter, but we have had an individual in a rigorous training program and he is starting to adapt well to temperatures above the +10 Celsius/+50 Fahrenheit line.
