Rogue Spear Mods for Mac
8:14 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

IMG reader and Rogue Spear fan Ryan Colley sent us an e-mail concerning his success in converting PC Rogue Spear modifications to make them work under Mac OS. While Mac Rogue Spear has now been out and available for only a week, many Mac gamers already want to play popular PC mods, but couldn't -- until now. Colley found out that if you delete all the PC carriage returns in all the text files of the mod, it should work. Here are the details:

After much "Playing" last night, I have gotten PC "Mods" to work with my Mac
Rogue Spear. The key, you must open up all of the text files (in BBEdit for
Example) and get rid of the PC carriage returns. After doing this, the mods
work fine. I actually even got Covert Operations to work in Single and
Multiplayer. Today is a good day for Mac Gamers!!!
We're sure this will help a lot of Rogue Spear fans out there. For an excellent one-step way to zap all of those CRs (also known as line feeds) grab textSOAP from VersionTracker.
