Oliver on Unofficial CentipedeX Patch, Apple Games Feedback
10:44 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Mac game programmer Brad Oliver has updated his personal blog with some information and a download for an unoffical OS X patch to the classic arcade title Centipede from MacSoft. He says that because his recent transfer to Aspyr, he won't be able to do any more work on it, but an obvious affection for the game has spurred this update:

When I was at MacWorld, I talked with some of the folks involved with supporting Centipede, and there are some ownership/support issues that aren't yet resolved. This complicates the ability to provide an official patch, so you have to swear to me that you won't ask anyone at MacSoft, Infogrames or Atari for support, because none of them will be able to help you. :-) And similarly, since I no longer work for Westlake, the odds are slim that I'll be able to fix any issues that crop up, so it's definitely provided as-is. Still, it's better than nothing.
You can find the download link in his post.

In another post, Brad talks about a recent session he had at the Apple campus in Cupertino, a session dedicated solely to gaming. While he can't reveal what they were shown, he indicates that things surely looks nice for us in the future:

The thing I took away from all this that I can share is this: the guys at Apple who put this together really, really care about games on the Mac. "We" (Mac game companies in general) got some feedback about previous issues that we were able to change a few things inside Apple that will benefit gamers, and there's nothing better than getting feedback like that.
