I haven't had any trouble quitting in the 4d version, despite what happened in 4b.

I normally see 10-20 FPS. I turned off some of the graphics modes enhancements, and it stayed higher, depending on where I was looking, etc. BTW- there is no QUIT anywhere.. Leave Location is about the best, and it doesn't seem very obvoius. Since I don't have the full version, I can't tell how you ...

My apologies..

I assumed you had those on file.. iBook g4/800mhz. 640 meg ram. Nothing else major running, although i've been unimpressed with the new Virex taking up power. at the time in question i was seeing 5-6FPS. As soon as I post this I'll try to get a good baseline, since I normally quit Safari, as it some...

Serious graphical troubles... 10.3.7, p1b4d

This doesn't really fall under the Class C bug.. it's a major problem.. but not fatal. Late in the demo, the system starts getting very unstable. I suspect it's having trouble dealing with the number of darwinians around... Trying to aim a radar dish starts bouncing the screen around, as you try to ...

Degredation of playability [p1b4][10.3.7]

I just experianced a degredation of playability, with the Alt menu not switching to other tabs, both via WASD and mouse. Cursor would move, but no switch. Key press, and no switch. It only became apparent when I had started production at the mines, and before a full crash of the program- about 5 min...

After playing for no more than 4 minutes, mostly on the Alt screen, I quit, using Esc, then mousing to the button. Screen froze, no reaction at that point, after clicking the Exit button. Only way out was to Command-Option-CTRL- Esc (force quit) which brought up the normal app crashed dialog. No bla...

One button mode...

In single level b4, you can't use the cheat to get the research done. I'll try the 3 button mode.. It's also very difficult to get the Officer to switch to a different mode- follow vs nothing, etc. Squad firing works very well with left click & hold. Let me see how it operates with 3 button.

You guys aren't being very nice.. I'm quickly getting jealous.. My little laptop just doesn't have the power. And after playing with a client's new 2.5 ghz G5 DP... I rather want one!

Calm down...

Most of us can read directions. We aren't idiots. If I was applying for the PC beta, the form would have been just fine. We aren't. Introvision & Ambrosia sent out a message requesting MAC beta testers for a port of Darwinia. You need to calm down. See: If you are going for a web app.. then it's...

Mac Beta Application suggestions...

Sorry to do this here.. but can't find a better place in the forums to do this.. The Mac beta signup is up and going.. but it's rather hard to give the correct information to the team about our hardware. There are only a specific number of models of Macs in the past 4 years. Each of them will have i...
