Aspyr Newsletter & Lego Star Wars Reqs
8:18 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media's latest email newsletter has been released, providing its regular list of status updates about company's games to customers. Included was also some development news about hotly anticipated releases of Stubbs the Zombie and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005.

Zombie fans will be glad to hear that Aspyr is on top of the Mac port of Stubbs, keeping it very close to the Xbox version being developed at Wideload. They still plan to ship this fall for Mac, PC, and Xbox.

For the first time in the series' history, Aspyr has decided to ship a course installer with Tiger Woods 2005. This should enable players to download the many courses available on the web to extend their gameplay. Here's the scoop:

Our internal team whipped up a very nice OS X Cocoa application with XCode 2.1 to streamline the course install process, and this added feature will give the game even more replayability than before, even with the numerous courses included out of the box.
The newsletter also mentions a pending Battlefield 1942 patch which should allow better support for modifications like Desert Combat Final and adding GameRanger support as well. Macologist has the info on how they helped with this one, so check out the link below if you're curious.

Lastly, Aspyr has also sent word this morning with the final system requirements for Lego Star Wars, expected to ship next month. Here's the rundown of the system you'll need to experience this mashup of these two childhood favorites:

OS - Mac OS X 10.3.8 or later
CPU - PowerPC G4/G5
CPU Speed - 1.2 GHz or faster
Memory - 512MB
Hard Drive - 2 GB free disk space
Video - ATI Radeon 9000 or better, NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 or better

Disc Drive - DVD Drive required to install and play

Recommended System Requirements
