Majesty Updated to 1.01
2:30 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

MacGameFiles continues its impressive string of updates with a patch for MacPlay's real-time RTS title Majesty, which brings that application to version 1.01. The patch addresses several of the minor complaints players have been reporting regarding this title, and improves multiple-monitor support. Here is a full list of the updates:

Updates MacPlay's Majesty to 1.0.1. Includes the following fixes:

Added better support for multi-monitor machines. A dialog will appear, if the game finds more than one monitor that can support its desired video mode.

The game will not try to startup the TCP/IP connection unless it is starting a network game.

Better error handling if an older version of DrawSprockets is installed.

Fixed a bug where the stored CD volume would be set lower each time the game was exited, eventually reaching zero.

Added a command line switch, -killfinder, to kill the Finder when Majesty is run. This helps on machines that are experiencing frequent CD music stops/restarts. It appears that the Finder is getting occasional updates, in the background, and is stopping the CD.

To use the switch, create a new SimpleText document and type -killfinder on the first line. Make sure the hyphen is before killfinder and there are no spaces before the word. Save the file into the folder containing the Majesty™ application, with the name CommandLine.txt . The Finder will automatically restart once Majesty exits. You can also kill all running applications by using the command -killotherapps. When using this switch, you do not need to use -killfinder.

Fans of Majesty should grab this patch right away. If you have yet to try this engrossing, attractive RTS title, be sure and take the demo for a spin. If you're still not convinced this title is worth the money, read through our detailed review -- IMG readers have awarded the game an astounding 9.33 points out of 10, one of the highest user ratings for any title we have reviewed.
