QuickTime 6.1 Game Issues
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Apple released QuickTime 6.1 for download last week. Unfortunately, while updates are usually welcome, this particular update seems to render some games unplayable. Some of the titles mentioned in an IMG forum thread on the topic include Black & White and F1 2000.
Thankfully, a Zonic representative has responded with an explanation as well as contact information for those that wish to try some beta patches that address the problem:
Unfortunately QuickTime's full screen mode API was updated in 6.1, so its blanking window is now created in a different window layer than before (it's actually on top of the game window).He also adds that the final patches should see release shortly.
Those who have yet to update to QT 6.1 may want to wait a bit, as other games may also see conflicts with it. Those who find these conflicts are encouraged to report their findings in our forums.
