It's out, people!
Here's the notes:
Huzzah! About time...thanks for all the hard work at Aspyr. Now I can once again forget I even have a Windows install. Just the way it ought to be.
*looks down* Oh dear i think something happened in my pants
The Mac App version is not yet updated. The update has been submitted to Apple.
BTW Ryan just noticed this, I think you mean 126.96.36.1993 (i.e. with the hotfixes) might want to change the title
Also does this mean we can get the new Korea and Wonders DLC at last?
Well done, Aspyr
My updated copy says it's version 188.8.131.523, so that's what I've put in the FAQ.
Still no Mods menu.
That's what I get for posting on my day off.
Thread title updated
Ok I anwsered my own question
DLCs for Korea and Wonders do indeed work, Just brought them downloaded and was playing with korea and could access the new wonders (well they're in the Civlopedia haven't actually got beyond settling yet lol) and the scenarios.
Many thanks Ryan and enjoy the rest of your day off (playing the updated version?).
I'll be the cynical one and say that by the end of the year, the game will be out of sync again.
Seriously, though, this makes me very happy. I've been playing the game almost exclusively in Windows with my PC friends, and it'll be nice not to restart to play.
If you want to play any mods, don't forget that you will need to edit the .lua file again:
~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/sid meier's civilization v/assets/UI/FrontEnd/MainMenu.lua
Change line 35 to:
-- Controls.ModsButton:SetHide( true ); -- MAC_PORT - rickb Comment this line out to re-enable mods. Happy modding!
Does anyone know if the vanilla enhanced mod and unofficial patch work with mac?
There should be no reason why any mod would fail on the Mac now that we are at feature parity with Windows.
As far as I know, no one has discovered any of the issues with XML or LUA compatibility that plagued Civ4 mods, and of course, there is no custom DLL available to Windows modders ... yet.
I've been checking this forum daily, waiting for this anouncement.
Now I can play that game with Askia I've been hanging out for. Was waiting for the new honour tree, so can really take advantage of his strengths.
oh, and does anyone know if we can run the replay files now?
I still have a trashed HOF.
Okay, I went down to King and even there, GEESH, the AI is more aggressive.
How much time for the update to being validated ?
First October ? or Last Day of September ?
Maybe i dream far too, also
It's up to Apple. Could be this week, could be weeks. I'm certain we'll put it live as soon as we get approved.
Ok, will be patient if necessary
And DLCs ? Are in form of in-app purchases ?
Or a pack to buy separately like a regular App ?
Separate names with a comma.
