Programmer Jesse Spears has written in with new word on Harpoon3, his highly-acclaimed naval warfare simulation. Some recent efforts on the PC side have affected the Mac version as well, both with optimizations and slight directory modifications. An update is now available for both the Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 builds of the game.
Here's a quick excerpt from his update with more of an explanation of what has changed in version 3.3.7:
One very important change for both platforms is the addition of a new "options" folder. It's a folder at the same level as the Harpoon3 Application (or, at the same level as the Resource folder, if that makes more sense to some of you). I needed a cross-platform and easy-to-implement way to let the user turn on certain game related options. To turn on a particular option, you just need to have a properly named file in the options folder. If you don't have an options folder, or you don't have the right file for a particular option, nothing bad happens... you just don't enable that option.Check out the Harpoon3 site for more information or to grab the latest version of the game for your particular system.
