Wolf MP Test 2 Released for OS X
6:00 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
Late yesterday, id Software's Graeme Devine released the Mac OS X version of Multiplayer Test 2 of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, the World War II-inspired first-person shooter in development with Gray Matter Interactive and Nerve Software.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein drops players into the midst of the great conflict between the Axis and Allied powers, and throws in elements of horror and the occult for good measure. The current release is intended primarily as a public test of the game's multiplayer networking code.
Although Wolfenstein MP Test 2 contains the same map as did MP Test 1, the changes from Test 1 are far too numerous to list here. Worthy of special note, however, is this known problem:
The Pure Server option for servers is not currently functional for Map Test 2. Do not set Pure Server to "Yes" when hosting a Map Test 2 server. It will prevent any clients from joining your server.Suffice it to say that if you've got Mac OS X and want to help test this latest public build, you'll want to head on over to MacGameFiles.com and get it.
A client trying to join a Pure Server will receive the following error:
If you get this message, try another server.
