As of today, all of the casual games we sell, from DX-Ball 2 through Vortiball, have received an updated. The changes are:

* Fullscreen mode has been updated to work better on modern hardware.
* Any games that used shareware-style registration no longer need a serial code. Now they just have separate demo and full versions.
* If you're connecting to a custom server, Rival Ball and Rival Ball Tournament now accept DNS names instead of just IP addresses.
* Rival Ball Tournament Expansion Pack no longer requires Rival Ball Tournament.
* Various bug fixes.

To update, just log into the Download Centre and grab the latest version. Enjoy!

Would it be possible to introduce an option to toggle between the new and the old full-screen mode? The new full-screen mode stretches out the picture to match my computer's 16:9 aspect ratio. It also looks very pixelated and introduces slight flickering, possibly due to the DPI scaling in Windows 8. Also, the bug with the sound in Stone Cutter seems to still persist.

I just realized that there are no more download links for Mac versions of ANY of the games. What happened?
It would have to suck if somebody bought one of these games to play on macOS

They were written for older versions of Mac and don't really support the newer versions. If you do want one of the old links anyway you can email rob@longbowgames.com

oh ok. I'm no Apple fan, but I thought having the downloads still available as some sort of "legacy" version with a warning that it might not work on newer computers would be a good thing
