It’s Friday, which means it’s time for news from Mac game publisher
Feral Interactive. Feral doesn’t have any new games to announce this week but they have offered some details about what they’re doing to improve the games they’ve already released.
Feral spokesman Camille Thouvenin noted that the company’s development partner Zonic has created a utility called Input Calibrator that serves to improve joystick, gamepad and other input device control on Feral’s games. Rayman 3 and Total Immersion Racing are the first two Feral titles to get the Input Calibrator experience, which has been added to new patches available for download now.
Feral has released a total of five game updates of note, including a fix for its F1 Championship Season 2000 Formula One racing game. The new patch fixes problems associated with input from Modena steering wheels and Y-Axis sensitivity.
Also available for download is a patch to Feral’s real-time strategy game Warrior Kings that fixes a number of bugs and crashing problems, as well as a Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) issues with ATI and Nvidia cards.
Ghost Master, the real-time strategy game that puts you in the role of a leader of spooks haunting a town, fixes video problems and crashing issues. Total Immersion Racing also gains some fixes to the game’s graphics and other changes, while Rayman 3 gains a freeze fix and some other changes.
You can download any of these patches by visiting Feral’s Web site, and if that’s not of interest, the site has also been updated with in-game video showing the Mac version of XIII, the company’s first-person shooter in development.
