Aspyr releases Civ 4 1.6.1

Aspyr Media has released a free update to Civilization IV, improving performance on certain Macs (G5s in particular) that exhibited excessive CPU usage in the original release. The game should no longer run dual CPU's to 100 percent capacity, according to the company, and some missing sounds should play correctly while others may remain inaudible after updating. The update also offers improved support for the "globe" view at lower quality settings, and fixes bugs caused by installing "Big Blue Marble" mod. Aspyr reports that some Intel Mac users may experience kernel panics when running a version of Mac OS X prior to 10.4.7, although users still experiencing the issue can turn off FSAA options and/or run the game in a window as a workaround. Civilization IV is available for $50, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

    Old News

    For a minute there, I thought the article was in regard to final non-beta patch. But in fact, it is in regards to 2 weeks old patch. Maybe MacNN should be renamed to MacONN (Mac Old News Network).

    Actually

    The one on MacGameFiles was added a couple days ago (the 29th) and appears to be the official release, Aspyr's site stil shows the beta, though.

    I downloaded the file on MacGameFiles, and it is in fact the offical Rev A Release.
