Mac PlaneShift Closed Alpha, Development Progresses
8:17 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

After opening up 20 spots for testing a new Alpha build of the Mac OS X version of the MMORPG PlaneShift, the developers have officially stopped accepting requests for the closed Mac alpha. They received a massive amount of requests from potential alpha testers after an article appeared on the Slashdot news site regarding the openings. The developers had this to say:

Just a quick note to say that we have filled the 20 available slots for closed Mac alpha in the first 10 hours after posting the message. Please do not send more emails about joining the closed alpha test. The rate of applications seems to increase every day and yesterday we received about 1 email every 10 minutes for the whole day! It's great to see that the MacOSX world is interested to PlaneShift, we will continue to do our best to support this platform.
According to the developers, the Macintosh client is working at the same speed as the other clients. They have encountered a few Mac-specific issues, like the one-button mouse, but they will deliver the Macintosh distributions in synch with other distributions.

IMG will bring you the latest news on this superb-looking, free MMORPG as it becomes available.
