Harpoon3 Docs & Updates
9:37 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
This week brings a manual, a tutorial, and a cosmetic update under Mac OS X to players of Harpoon3, the critically-acclaimed real-time naval warfare simulation by Jesse Spears:
A dedicated Harpooner actually read the updated FAQ page (quite a shock ;-), and offered to do a little work on the manual for me... Marcus's reward is below in the OS X section.Both the manual and the tutorial are Adobe PDF files.
All that Marcus wanted in return for his help was "outlines for the windows in the OS X version". Those of you that have tried out the Beta OS X version know what he's talking about...document windows under OS X don't have any borders. The map backgrounds are all the same color, so the windows blend together and it can be very easy to get confused when any of them overlap.Follow the links below to download the documentation and OS X patch, and if you haven't yet taken Harpoon3 out for a trial run, download the demo from Macgamefiles.com.

The patch... fixes this. There is now a light grey border around the Map area of the windows.
While I was making that small fix, I decide to do something about the "ugly button outlines" (as another user described them). I believe I got them all, and some of the default buttons should even glow like good Aqua buttons are supposed to.
