Beenox Comments on THPS3 Feedback, THPS4
6:00 AM | Scott Turner | Comment on this story
Dee Brown, president of Beenox, the Macintosh game development and porting company, has answered questions for some IMG forum readers about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3's compatibility with Force Feedback technology. Brown also comments in a separate thread on the progress so far between Beenox and Aspyr on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 .
Here's a comment on the upcoming patch for Force Feedback in THPS3:
The TH3 patch is done and left for approval at Activision last week. We had a lot of fun playing a massive "Slap" game with the Aspyr & Beenox folks together :). Posted in another topic, Dee enthusiastically gives a status report on their up-and-coming port of THPS4:
As for TH4, it is based on the Xbox version. It rocks.
TH4 was finally announced and we are very proud of how the project is going. The mini-site at Aspyr had several errors that are or should very soon be corrected. The multiplayer component, for example, is already in and fully playable (even Mac<->PC). The graphics are gorgeous (yes, TH3 graphics may look like a PS1 game -- it is a PS1 game originally) and the new mission layout is definitely cool. Plus, we support Altivec accelaration, FFB, a whole new and improved config screen, and more. TH fans will be thrilled by it -- for everyone else, there are demos coming soon!Go join in on the discussion at the IMG Forums at the links below, or head on over to Beenox to check out more about their port of THPS4, due later in 2003.
