    I heard that the upcoming game myst 5 will use a version of the Havok engine in it. But I also heard that legal problems prevent Havok to be released for the mac platform. This is the cause of other games not being ported (Half Life 2).

    I hope you prove me wrong... I really liked all the other Myst games.

    Cyan vowed never to touch Havok again after what happened with Uru. Apparently Havok told them that it was a cross-platform API, so they used it. Imagine how annoyed/angry they would've been when they discovered they'd been lied to :mad:

    That damned Havok engine has caused more troubles in Macs than it resolves on PC's!
