The only way on OS X to split a 5.1 AC3 into 6 audio files, to be recombined in QuickTime to form a 5.1 channel AAC.

Although it's cool that this UB update is free, the absence of volumetric shadow is a little disturbing. Only simple shadow works.

People actually drop 2000 bucks to play Tetris on their computers. 4 1/2 stars too. Awesome. Beautiful world.

For a real game of Mahjong there is Damejong 2.0.

I really wish more people would research the market, even a little, before rolling out yet another Shanghai clone. Newsflash: we have enough of these. To be precise, we have about 20 copies of Shanghai now floating around in MacUpdate alone. And the trouble with the Shanghai game is that you can only arrange the tiles so many times before the player gets numb to the gameplay. It wouldn't matter if you add 3D or even shaders to the game, a tired (soon-to-be) 30 year old game is just that.

The uniniated to the actual game of Mahjong can go to this page to learn how to play:

Done properly, the real Mahjong can be a ever-changing, fun online game. If nothing else, at least it'd set your version of Mahjong apart from the rest.

The original game to all these clones is called Shanghai, published by Activision. It was the brainchild of Brodie Lockard.

It first appeared on the Commodore Amiga--otherwise known as the best computer there ever was, back when everybody else was doing 1 bit sound and 2-bit graphics. Imagine PCs with 4 colors. Apple II had 6. Look up Mobygames.

And this is a real game of Mahjong. It's a lot more complicated. Take a few evenings to learn the rules, but works great as an online game for 4. Any big game publishers want to get it right for real Mahjong lovers?

Whoops, Sorry, In my haste I forgot the game first came out on the Mac in 1-bit graphics. Well I did first see it on the Amiga in glorious 6-bit.

Basically a homage to the video game that guzzled up pocket change like mad during the 80s--a game widely known as "1941". http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?letter=0&game_id=6765
Here the graphics isn't nearly as captivating as one would like, to put it mildly. It's limited to the retro top-down flat world view. This should appeal to straight-up shoot-em-uppers who never tire of such games. It's good for what it is, but not for this price.

More a showcase than an actual game. For what it is though, it's a real stunner, even if only holds your attention for 2 minutes. Still, if this ever gets expanded into anything like Panzer Dragoon, I'll be standing by to hit that Paypal button.
