Event Horizon is a 3D game similar to the classic Escape Velocity game from Ambrosia. Basic game play is very similar: you fly around the galaxy in your spaceship, landing on planets to tradegoods or get missions, shoot up the other spaceships, and buy or sell spaceship addons or another spaceship.

  • Fixed crash on load
  • Fixed default Intel key bindings
  • Known bug: button labels do not show up on Intel iMacs (probably not on Mac Pro or MacBook Pro, either)

i love this game. it just needs to have some of the complexity of EV Nova, then it would be amazing. Now, i know thats probably the plan for the future, but even as is, this game is very fun to play for some reason :p

Anyways, i found a bunch of bugs.
• Crashes constantly for unknown reasons
• Music does not loop once its done playing its track. (good music, btw)
• Turret tracking system is close to useless because it lags behind moving targets just slightly so in order for them to be effective at all you have to be right behind your target.
• FPS jumping from 200 to 0 every 5 seconds.
• Even if a turret is shooting at a target right in front of you, sometimes it will miss constantly because it is shooting at the target brackets but it is not hitting the actual target

all these combined makes the game almost unplayable, which is really unfortunate because this is an awesome idea. its what Ambrosia missed out on.

I have found the problem... I hard-coded some stuff for 1152x864 resolution. If your monitor supports this, you should be fine. Otherwise, I ought to have a new build out in a few days to fix this and some other stuff.

Is something supposed to happen after I click "New Player?"

The music continues, the "Cancel" button brightens, but that's it. Nothing else but the game logo.

(OS X 10.3.9 Panther)

I'm guessing that it's a missing font issue. It's supposed to say "enter your name" at that screen. You could try entering a name and then hit return, which ought to take you to the next screen.

The beeping has been taken care of now.

BUG: when i jump into 3rd person view, I get stuck in that view. I cannot go back to the "front" view or even rear view. Also there needs to be some preferences for controlling the beep sounds. A screen at the beginning of the game describing the objective would also be good.

I was just alerted to the fact that I forgot to include the FScript Framework with the binary, so if you downloaded 0.6.5 and it crashed on launching, please try 0.6.5b, in which I have included the necessary framework. Thanks!

I have been alerted to the problem with 10.4, and am working to correct it. Unfortunately I don't have 10.4, myself, so it will be kind of slower, but I am confident that it will soon be working. Thanks for your interest!

On Tiger version 0.60 only presents a black screen with a standard cursor. A force quit is needed [in the blind] to regain the computer control. I sent a crash dump to the author.

I have dual monitors on my ATI9800 Pro but the old 0.5.10 version used to work under Panther.
