Closed-Beta for Macs - Coming as Soon as NEXT WEEK! :D

Post by FD_LegoFan101 on Fri 02 Jul 2010, 5:34 pm

Check dis out:




What you are looking at are two references to Mac-compatible LEGO Universe components - a type of patcher update, and some coding referring to a Mac version. (Mysteriously under the ".exe" format, although the patcher calls for the ".app" format...)

Here is a folder with the files I've found quite interesting. If you have a Mac, you're welcome to check them out.

DO NOT SHARE THESE FILES WITH ANYONE ELSE! They are for TRUSTED betas ONLY!

*Removed

New files will be added as they are found.

And yes, I am allowed to do this so long as only trusted beta testers that I have met in game are the only ones who see it. Razz

Interesting, it's quite possible because there polishing the game too. Even if I don't have any Mac, it's a big update for beta testers that use Mac.

That's really good! I use a mac, so I have to use parallels (virtual machine) to play.

However, in the link you provided on your blog I think it said something about the mac version being powered by cider. I think Cider is a "on the cloud" service (it's all hosted on the internet), and I'm a bit reticent about using these services.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Trust me, if LEGO uses it (not to mention other games like Spore - we would have heard if there was anything wrong with it by now) I'm pretty sure it's trustworthy. Wink

I just contacted LEGO about it. They're still being vague about it.

I just find it odd that they have the components to update the Mac program ready - and running. Razz

BTW, does Parallels make weird popping sounds with the incoming audio for you? I tried out the new intro (offline portion) yesterday, and it sounded like popcorn in a popcorn maker. 0.o

Still, I'm still a bit concerned about a few security and practical issues, but I guess I'll have to do a bit more research. Smile.

In response to your other question, I have't played LU for a short while now, and I'm just off to do so. I'll edit the post when I'm finished. Smile

EDIT: Just remembered, no test session this weekend. However, I did see the intro, and encountered no popping. What I did see, though, was the menu strangely flickering on and off.

I've been fooling around with figuring out how to get it to work...

But so far, I've not come across anything useful.

I don't think we'll be able to get early access to a Mac version, but I'll keep trying. Smile

PS. The version I might get to work will PROBABLY require you to have the LEGO Universe files - which I can't share, since they're over 6 GB in size. 0.o
