Yeah, yeah, it's coming...
Running With Scissors, myself, and the MacNinjas spent some time moving
the original Postal to MacOS X. If you want it, the complete game is on
the MacWorld "Total Tiger" disc, which hits newstands today, July 26th.
Make sure you get the right magazine, since this is a special edition of
MacWorld and not the usual issue. You can buy it online here.
This is currently the only
place you can get a real MacOS X version of
Postal 1, and it's the full single-player game, not a demo, so don't miss it!
If you bought the "Meal Deal #3: Minority Combo" disc from gopostal.com, it
has installers for Mac, Linux, and Windows included. This went to press
today, so those will be shipping sometime soon.
If you have a Windows-only AW disc, you can use these installers:
Apocalypse Weekend installer for MacOS X: http://0day.icculus.org/postal2/postal2aw-macosx-installer.zip
Apocalypse Weekend installer for Linux: http://0day.icculus.org/postal2/postal2aw-linux-installer.tar.bz2
The installers will patch your Postal 2 install to 1409.1 if needed.
Unreal Tournament 2004:
Spent some more time with GL_EXT_framebuffer_object, and fixed some
of the remaining ut2004 issues...the blocky shadows were caused by
rendering the final shadow textures as GL_NEAREST instead of
GL_LINEAR...now they match the Direct3D renderer's appearance.
I also got all the UnrealScript-based render targets to stop drawing
upside down, which fixes most of the rest of the issues.
If I could just figure out why the Hellbender license plate is corrupted,
I'd be golden.

First off, John hit his fundraising goal of 4000 bucks! I saw on his blog
several people mentioning that they came there through this .plan, which
is touching; I'm glad I helped in some small way. Even though he's met his
goal, donations are still accepted and go to cancer research. Details are
at his blog, which, again, you should read even if you don't plan on
pledging any money: http://overcode.yak.net/3
Second, go read The Time Traveler's Wife
Now, about this Hot Coffee bullshit.
I hate having to be the voice of reason here...but GTA was promoting
ultra-violence, sexism, and racism already. Now someone unlocks a little
badly-rendered, soft-core porn and it becomes a national emergency?
If you couldn't get worked up about San Andreas before now, you really REALLY
missed your window for righteous indignation, Hillary.
