World Of Warcraft Updated
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Blizzard Entertainment recently released a new update for its popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft. In addition to the usual bug fixes, balance changes, and content additions the 2.2.0 patch introduces in-game video capture for Mac owners. The latest patch also begins the integration of voice chat on a realm by realm basis.

Some of the updates in the latest version:

- Voice Chat: The new Voice Chat feature is now available. Players will need to go into the Options menu under Sound & Voice to activate it. The new feature will be activated on the various realms in stages. For the Voice Chat launch schedule please visit the forums.
- Mac Movie Capture: the Mac client can now capture in-game video to QuickTime movie files using a configurable choice of codec, resolution, and frame rate. New keybindings have been added to the Key Bindings dialog. For more detailed configuration options please see the Mac Options panel in game. Mac OS X 10.4.9 and QuickTime 7.1.6 or better are required. Not all machines have enough performance to smoothly capture video at high frame rates; end user experimentation will be required to find appropriate settings for each system.
- Additional graphic optimization utilizing AltiVec for PowerPC-Mac and SSE for Intel-Mac. This provides some performance benefit on systems where vertex animation shaders are either unavailable or disabled (recommended on systems with Intel integrated video).
