MacOS Catalina is nearing! Don’t do it (Yet)!!

MacOS Catalina is nearing! Don't do it (Yet)!!

Yeah, time is going fast and we are far behind and there is lot’s to do regarding the new Mac OS Catalina. Apple thinks they are gracious enough with the time to get everything ready. But simply said. Mac OS Catalina is 64bit and will kill all your 32bit games…. True story. So if you want to play any old and newer 32-bit games , then don’t do it!

“But if you make Porting Kit 64bit, is it not resolved?” Nope, the games itself are 32-bit and have 32-bit processes, and simply won’t work anymore. Only 64bit games. “Does this mean everything is lost?” No! not yet. We are planing to make a Linux version of Porting Kit. This in combination with a tiny Linux distro with wine, will make it technically possible to still be able to play 32bit games in a kind of VM and not needing Windows or bootcamp. Yes it’s a hell of a job and it takes time and patience and for you guys not to update to Mac OS Catalina to be able to play your games. We will keep you guys in the loop with the process. If you are a Mac/Linux coder/programmer and want to contribute helping us, contact us (Vitor) using the contact form, so stuff can speed up. Thanks for your  tremendous patience and support!

We will make this topic sticky for a while, so for other updates, game releases and news just scroll down. the news page.
