View Full Version : Weird Worlds Mac OS X patch (take 2)
September 14th, 2007, 11:20 AM
Hi all! We've got another version of the the Mac OS X patch to try out. Thanks to the hard work of the previous round of testers, this one is better, faster and stronger than before. We'd like you all to try it out and see if any more problems crop up before we declare it done. If you're interested, back up your game files and then download and install the following file:
The zip file contains installation instructions in readme.txt.
Play the game a few times and maybe try out some mods, and report any problems here on the forum.

Works fine ... but it has problems with the HighScore List.
Even trying to view the list crashes the game ( i have tried 1.22 with the Enterprise Mod/Defiant).
The normal usage without mods seems to be stable

Try deleting the game.cfg file and try again (pr at least move it to another location)

Seems to work fine for me so far.
The sounds still glitches a little bit, but i always has on my machine.
Tiny little clicks and pops, even on the main title screen when the alien guy appears (in fact it almost always happens then).
This is sometimes accompanied by a tiny glitch/pause in the graphics too. It's annoying, but I've always lived with it. Does anyone else still get this?
Using Mac OS 10.4.10 on a 1.5 GHz G4 PowerBook, 1GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 256 MB VRAM.

@Phlagm : this fixed it, thanks http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif
@Ace: i am using 10.4.10 on the same machine. No sound problems ... Graphic glitches only occur if my computer is doing something else while i play, e.g. sorting spam out of my mails. Try to quit some applications or check in the terminal that more that 70% cpu time are idle before you star playing ( command is "top" )

any updates for Intel Mac? i can't play any mods. they all crash the game during the ship combat on the main menu screen (ship explosion, i think). only mod that doesn't crash the game is "Absolute Warfare."
