Vendetta Online 1.8.430

VO 1.8.430 includes:

- Latos F-12 demonstration sector is now a larger and more complex scene, using all the capships hulks and floating pieces.
- Mac version now requires OS X 10.9 or newer, and only supports 64bit Intel processors.
- PowerPC support has been formally and permanently dropped from Vendetta Online.
- Mac version defaults to OpenGL 4 drivers for all new installs. We recommend existing users also switch to GL4, and help report any remaining issues.
- Mac GL4 version's auto-detection of discrete vs integrated GPUs and default graphics options have been updated to match the DirectX 11 version.
- Mac Retina display support is now possible. Defaults to "off", but may be added with "Enable Retina Support" in Video Options. It may impact performance.
- Mac version should now better handle Cmd-Tab, "Spaces" (virtual desktops), and other MacOS features.
- iPad version now uses specialized archive files with much faster load times.
- iPad users may now configure their gamepad sensitivity curves, under Options -> Input.

Clearly, a major update for Mac users, with also some cool new "capship hulks" to check out for everyone else.

The Mac version has been in need of a major "architecture upgrade" for quite some time, and this is important to also getting the game on Steam and the Mac Store. If you find any problems, please let us know. There are still some open questions with multi-monitor scenarios and mixed Retina and non-Retina monitors, what we've released should work pretty well, but we're still open to changing default behaviours and adding other feature support.

There will still be one more major Mac update, which will basically re-work the way the game actually installs on Macs, to conform to changes Apple has made since our last re-architecture.

The new iPad update is to help bring the latest iPhone TestFlight advancements into production for final testing. We are expecting the iPhone version to launch in the near future, more on that later. In the meantime, please report any issues you see on the iPad!

Thanks much everyone, and have a fantastic weekend!
