Weston Markham has undertaken a Macintosh port of DROD: Journey to Rooted Hold. In fact, it looks like he's got it nearly ready for beta-testing. What we could really use are some people willing to test on Macs with OS X. We are only going to distribute demo versions for this stage of testing, but if you already have the full version for Windows/Linux, you should be able to hack a full Mac version together by copying some files.

If you are interested, let us know by replying here. I'm going to leave it to Weston to coordinate with people on beta-testing.

-Erik

I'm absolutely interested. I have very limited experience with OS X, and with DROD.

I'm running a Mini on 10.3.9 But do not have another machine from which to grab the data files.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. It's great to see a port on OS X!

Thanks.

If you still want testers, I'm willing. Came here to the forums specifically to see if I could find an OS X version, actually. :)

Hey, this is looking like a good turnout! If you missed it, Weston made an introduction post over here:

http://www.drod.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=6226

DROD on the Mac! It's finally happening!

Hi! I missed this topic when I made that other post. I'm still trying to tie up a few more loose ends before I send out any beta versions. One thing that I am interested in knowing, though, is what range of hardware and OS versions our testing will cover. For example, I'm using a PowerBook G4 for development, under 10.3.9. It has whatever the standard video adapter is (something from ATI, I gather, with 128Mb memory) and so far I have only been using the built-in (1280x854) LCD. 1Gb memory. Plenty of hard drive space.

My primary machine here is a 1.2ghz G4 iBook w/256mb of RAM (don't ask) and (i think) a 32mb radeon 9200, and that's what I'd be playing DROD on, but I have other machines (900/500/233mhz G3s with varying specs) I'd be happy to check things on.

All with 10.3.9, although I could downgrade a few (even to 10.2 or below) if it'd be helpful (I can't imagine many people are still using 10.2 nowadays, though..).

OK, I'll sign up. Assuming that a 1Ghz eMac running OS 10.3.1 works, of course.

(Fuzzie, there's gotta be plenty of people using a sub-10.3 OS. I have two Powerbooks sitting in my house running 7.5.3. (God I hate passive-matrix displays))

Yeah, Speicus, that's fine. I just want to get an overall feel for what range of hardware we're testing on.

Sadly it never went past unpacking:

I downloaded the .dmg alright, which then extracted a mount volume to my desktop quite fairly too, I then proceeded to double-click this volume: "DROD", which captured full-screen-edness for one second, and I was back to the Desktop. Rebooted, but nothing changed (not that rebooting helps much except on Win).

Pouzler, I'm putting your report over on the bugs boards.

Has anyone gotten the beta to run?

Speicus must have gotten the beta to run, since he (/she?) posted a couple of bugs.

Also, note that the beta currently has a bug that prevents it from starting without manually copying data files first. See http://www.drod.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=6546.

Thanks Erik:
I don't have DSL and the download time is 3+ hours.
Could it be possible to get the beta on CD?

If you live in the US, I'll burn you a copy and mail it. (e-mail me at erikh@caravelgames.com with mailing address) Otherwise, it's just a little past my convenience threshold. What about letting the thing download while you are sleeping?

Sometime in the (hopefully) near future, I hope to release a smaller beta.

Oh, don't get your hopes up too much, though. It may still be, say, a 2 1/2 hour download....
