I have to go against the grain here. The updates should take precedent over your personal life. All of history’s greatest innovators devoted their life to their passion. Do you think Da Vinci cared one bit about where he would sleep or shower! Would he have been able to excel in art, science, medicine, and engineering if he let such minor annoyances dictate his life? Would Michaelangelo have completed the painting of the Sistine Chapel if he let life get in his way?

Now get in there D, and get us this next update pack!

Anyway, can't wait to try these games out.

EDIT: I lied- it was a year and a half ago:

Damien,

I noticed when I looked the details of what is updated it mentioned maps / cheats etc, I don't have any sections for those in my folder.... Am I losing what little mind I have?

Hi Mclane,

Yeah maybe

Will quote what's written in the 1st post of thread and how to access them from WinUAE (this is besides obviously using "Windows Explorer" and manually navigating to the <gamedir>):

To view these from WinUAE, right-click on the title bar of the "boxart" panel and select "Open Game Folder":

Thanks all, I must admit I quickly looked at the 1st page but I have a telephone constantly ringing here and I got distracted...

I switched "Remove interlace artifacts" on from under "Display" for all MAC games. If you don't then artifacts are present when moving and are very noticeable IMHO.

Regarding "Blackthorne"...

Before finalising / uploading the latest update pack; I noticed that if I switch "Remove interlace artifacts" off then the game runs a bit better; but decided to leave it on as I don't like the artifacts.

I've just been testing again and maybe that was the wrong decision...

What do you think guys? Try the game with / without "Remove interlace artifacts" ticked and let me know i.e. is it better to put up with artifacts for a speed increase?

No comments or have people not had the chance to try?

Anyway, think I'm going with switching off "Remove interlace artifacts".

Updated configuration file attached; just extract into "C:\WinUAE"

Just did a quick test and there is little to no difference to me in speed or artifacts, however unlike Prince of Persia my Xbox one pad does not work correctly I can move down and thats about it. As I said it works fine in POP.

Definite noticeable speed increase for me on my laptop with "Remove interlace artifacts" switched off but then I get artifacts...

Anyway, I think it's better to switch off.

Good point; as I only played using keyboard, didn't test with my Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

I just had a quick go; need to definitely switch off "JoyMouse" as the mouse pointer moves when playing etc.

I'll have to fix these issues in all 3 x MAC .HDFs... working on it
