OS X Myth II Final, More Updates Soon
8:33 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

MythDevelopers announced yesterday the release of a new, non-beta 1.3.2 update for the classic strategy game Myth II: Soulblighter. Version 1.3.2 brings the game to OS X by being fully carbonized, though there are already plans to move forward with more features and bugfixes in a new 1.4 patch.

The next update to the game is underway in conjunction with Project Magma, a former map making group for Myth TFL.

From Project Magma's website:

Project Magma, in association with MythDev, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Myth 1.4 on May 15th 2003.

Myth v1.4 will add over 100 enhancements, bug fixes and new features to Myth II: Soulblighter, in the areas of: graphics; interface improvements; elimination of plugin lag; elimination of chat lag; elimination of the 'walking bug', new mapmaking features; AI improvements and bug fixes; optional vTFL (virtual TFL) gameplay, which effectively brings both games and communities to the same program; and much, much more.

Myth v1.4 will, of course, also include the changes present in Myth II v1.3.2, namely support for OS X, and elimination of the flashing cursor under Windows 2000/XP.
One of the changes being worked on is trying to implement OpenGL in the game. The only graphics mode available when playing the game in OS X at the moment is Software rendering. If OpenGL is not working perfectly at May 15th, it will be added with a later patch.

To get the v1.3.2 patch to Myth II, head over to our sister-site Macgamefiles and download it. For more information about v1.4, visit the Project Magma website.
