I uploaded the MacOSX Version to Sourceforge yesterday afternoon, so hopefully it will now have propagated to the mirrors :)

Generally though patience is good :)

Always bear in mind that the porters are just folks doing it out of the kindness of their heart and for the love of the project. I always tend to produce the Mac one as fast as I can... and if I'm away for a while will let someone know so that another can step in :D

Usable download link for Mac OS X, for those who can't wait a second longer :)
It's all fun and games until someone loses a lawsuit. Oh, and by the way, sending me private messages won't work. :/ If you must contact me, there's an e-mail address listed on the website in my profile.

Many thanks to Sith for his tireless work in bringing we Macphiles BfW so quickly, and his graciousness in the face of endless demands to deliver faster.

Is there a way to download the campaigns directly rather than having to download them through the game campaign menu?

Not really. The campaign server uses a custom protocol that you can't access through http or ftp. You can ask a campaign writer to make it available via http, but the hassle of doing so is why we all moved to the in-game server. You can find who the campaign writer is on the wiki or campaign forum. Can I ask why?

any way to post patches/diffs?

Post by schnorko58 » February 23rd, 2005, 2:00 am

I appreciate all the work you are doing, but I really wish you could post diffs or patches
or something for the source code. Surely your version control system would make this
fairly easy (?). I like to play once a week with a friend on the server, and I have dialup, so it is disappointing to find out that I need to make a 16M download.

Have you guys considered actually putting more explicit info about individual platform "releases" on the homepage news section? That area is so under used - if it said

"All platform ready except Mac - please want for an annoucement here from Sith" you really could save yourselves some grief! But it's the whole effort to save effort thing...

At least there could be a sentence that says what we tell people a million times when they come looking for a new release. The pain is just exacerbated by 3 releases so close together.

"Non-official volunteers" might be a better way to say that... I don't think you want to be saying that Dave isn't affiliated with the project :wink:

You could say the service is not affiliate with the project

You know what I mean!

You could use CVS.
