Note to AH: Mac OS Catalina ended 32 bit support

Post by Dr.Disaster » Fri Nov 01, 2019 1:21 am

In their new Mac OS Catalina (10.15) Apple has dropped 32 bit support.
SpoilerShow
This means that both LoG and LoG 2 can not be played on the current Apple OS anymore. In the light of this (long announced) development are there any plans to give both games a 64 bit version?
EDIT: sorry guys, false alarm due to me believing Steam's game rating without actually testing.

Fact is: Catalina says both games are 64 bit Mac OS applications and continue to run fine.

This should probably be posted on the Druidstone forums. :(

Sorry for sounding a false alarm due to me believing Steam's ratings without actually testing.

Fact is:
Catalina says both games are 64 bit Mac OS applications and they do run fine.
Tested and confirmed it for both games on my Mac Pro 3 running Catalina 10.15.1

Edit:
After bringing this up to Steam support i got this answer:

"The message you are seeing is happening because the publisher/developer of those titles has not selected that their game supports MacOS 64 bit in our system - we're reaching out to let them know this."

So: AH needs to alter some Steam setting to make these false messages go away.

Thanks for bringing this us, and sorry for the long delay!

I've just flagged the binaries to be 64-bit compatible on Steam, so the problem should go away once the Steam servers refresh the store page.
