As promised, Aspyr Media Inc. has released the Doom 3 v 1.3 patch for Mac. This updates the English Mac retail release of Doom 3
This version introduces a “preview” of OpenAL-based 5.1 channel surround sound. According to Aspyr’s release notes, this support only works with an OpenAL-compliant 5.1 surround sound card (that excludes Macs with digital audio output capabilities), such as those made by M-Audio.
Also in this version is better handling of keypad keys, fixes crashes with some mods and on vid_restart, new PunkBuster anti-cheat support, better support for third party “mods” and various PC bug fixes. The 10MB patch is a free download.
