Star Trek – Hidden Evil for Mac

I was first from opinion to skip this game because of the small glitches which the game has. But When playing it for a while, the glitches aren’t that bad. So here we are Star Trek – Hidden Evil for Mac! And yes, I tested the game both on my intel based Macbook Pro 2019 and my M1 apple silicon Mac mini, and game works nice on both machines (aside of those glitches). To see what I mean, I made a video tutorial + some gameplay using my M1 Apple Silicon Mac.

I mentioned it also in the youtube video description, you won’t see your desktop when playing on the background (sides), you will see black bars instead because of the resolution of the game. That’s a bug of my screenflow version (video capture).

Total Annihilation – Commander Pack updated and compatible now with M1 Apple Silicon.

Another game tested and updated for the M1 Apple Silicon: Total Annihilation – Commander Pack! The update to the latest CX21.1.0 engine fixed the game for M1 Apple Silicon Macs. Tested the games for about 10 minutes of gameplay without issues comparing with the intel chipset Macs.

For Apple M1 Apple Silicon it might require the latest Mac OS version of Monterey 12.1! So if it doesn’t work and you or on Big Sur, then upgrade to the latest Mac OS version Monterey!

What began as a conflict over the transfer of consciousness from flesh to machine has escalated into a war that has decimated a million worlds. The Core and the Arm have all but exhausted the resources of the entire galaxy in their struggle for domination. Choose your side, build an army, and crush your enemies on huge, three-dimensional battlefields. And remember, there is no such thing as “too many guns”!

Updates:
– Compatible with M1 Apple Silicon now
