Mac OS X 10.3.7 Fixes World of Warcraft Issues
8:02 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

While it's sometimes a good policy to wait to see how a new system update pans out, those playing World of Warcraft may want to go ahead and give 10.3.7, the latest OS release from Apple, a shot. Among its enhancements are several addressed issues pertaining to the recently released MMORPG.

Additionally, Blizzard has put together a FAQ pertaining to the currently disabled graphic options in World of Warcraft, and how 10.3.7's release will help Mac gamers out.

Here's the word from Apple's website:

  • Addresses an issue with Blizzard World of Warcraft in which the game's frame rate could drop considerably when in "Ghost mode," if the computer uses an nVidia graphics card.

  • Resolves an issue in which enabling Vertex Shaders in World of Warcraft could lead to unexpected graphics issues when using an nVidia graphics card.

  • Addresses an issue with World of Warcraft in which incorrect colors or unexpectedly flashing objects could appear when using an ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card, making gameplay difficult.
Those who test out the latest update with WoW are encouraged to post their findings in our forums. The update itself can be obtained through the Automatic Software Update OS X provides, or from direct download via Apple's site.

For details on what's changing in the game, also be sure to read through Rob Barris' post in the World of Warcraft forums.
