Mac users can now play online with PC users (1.031 PC). Since MacSoft receives the code from Gearbox to create their updates, the changes / features are very similar, if not identical to 1.03 and 1.031 PC. This is a recommended update if you don't have it already (since you probably want to play with most servers out there).

Visit MacSoft's support page, or HBO's mirror list for more download mirrors.

  • Optimized map loading functionality, significantly reducing the time to load large map cycling configuration files.
  • Extended sv_players functionality.

  • It's now possible to restart the current game without requiring the server to map cycle.
