Aspyr Media and Westlake Interactive’s Mark Krenek have released a patch for the Mac conversion of Spider-Man. The new build adds some new features and makes some improvements, too.
Changes in Spider-Man 1.0.1 include:
Fixed a crash and rendering glitch with the Scorpion in the Character Viewer Gallery.
The invisibility feature of the Spidey Unlimited costume was not working.
Added support for 32-bit color (millions of colors). This improves overall texture dithering for machines that have the horsepower. It is a user option selectable under Options/Display Options.
Added support for Full Screen Anti-Aliasing on ATI video cards. It is a user option selectable under Options/Display Options. If your machine does not support this feature, the option will be disabled. ATI’s RADEON 8500 Mac Edition graphics board supports Full Screen Anti-Aliasing for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. To enable Full Screen Anti-Aliasing support in older RADEON Mac Edition models, including the original RADEON and RADEON 7000, a driver update from ATI’s Web site may be required. Visit
www.ati.com for the latest driver updates.
The radio tower on top of the building at start of the 2nd level was rendered incorrectly.
