Mark Adams on UT Carbonization
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Last week we brought you word that id Software would be releasing a version of Quake 3: Arena which would be 'Carbonized' -- converted to native format -- for the Mac OS X Beta in the near future. This naturally leads one to wonder of there is a possibility of a carbonized version of Unreal Tournament, another extremely popular Mac shooter. Mark Adams at Westlake Interactive was nice enough to give us a quick reply about this matter:
Its certainly possible, but we aren't working on it right now. If Westlake has some very valid concerns about gaming under OS X, as many pieces of OS X related to gaming seem to still be in a state of flux (InputSprockets, 3D support, etc). We'll keep you posted as the situation with OS X and Mac gaming evolves.

MacSoft decided is was a really important thing and contracted with us to
do it, obviously it would become a higher priority. Right now we're
still waiting for the gaming technologies to mature in OS X before
carbonizing anything though.
