Mouse wheel zooming via two-finger gesture on the touch pad isn't working. Neither is pinch zoom.

Not the biggest priority, but I'll look into implementing them! :)

I've tried the latest alpha (0.35) and it's a slideshow on my 2007 iMac. I've tried tweaking the values in Config.xml but unfortunately they don't seem to do anything; switching resolutions or fullscreen from "false" to "true" has no effect. When I directly run the Maia_Alpha executable and get the message window, the messages say there's an error in reading the Config.xml.

On 2007 hardware you are likely to get pretty poor performance. The texture resolution setting is what you'll want to change to get better speed, but on your machine you're likely not going to see 30-60fps until the game has been optimised more for the lower end.

That's to be expected. :) I usually don't run demanding games on this machine instead of my more modern Win7 PC, however I saw your latest alpha update when using my iMac workstation and thought you might need an extra Mac test. Currently though on this Mac it's running at less than one frame a second, so I can't really report on anything beyond that.

I've tweaked all the settings in the config file but nothing seems to change. I'm fairly certain it's running the defaults no matter what is in the file.

Aha alright. Frankly I'm amazed it actually ran!

That config thing sounds strange I'll get that checked out. Thanks.

I can second this as it's the same for me, no matter what i put in the config file nothing changes.
