Mac OS X 10.2.3 Released with Updates for Gamers
9:08 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Apple has released another update to Mac OS X 10.2 through the Software Update control panel. Besides the usual collection of bug fixes, the 10.2.3 update contains several enhancements that Mac gamers may find interesting. Here are the most notable items from the Apple Knowledge Base document:

Enhances support for Force Feedback-based USB devices
Improves compatibility for OpenGL-based software on some computers that use ATI Rage 128 graphic accelerator chips
Includes OpenGL 1.4 which contains improvements for all systems
Of note is the fact that there is a kernel extension specifically for Logitech force feedback devices. OpenGL now supports S3TC texture compression, which is used in modern games like Jedi Knight II, Unreal Tournament 2003, and Everquest. The 51 MB update is expected to be available for download from Apple's website later in the day.
