On high demand! Impossible Creatures for Mac! The game is also tested in Catalina OS 10.15.x. tested the first level for the most part with no issues.

Mac OSX 10.8.x – 10.12.x issues with latest WS11 (Steam) Engines resolved.

Mac OSX 10.8.x - 10.12.x issues with latest WS11 (Steam) Engines resolved.

It seemed that all people who had Mac OS 10.8.x up to 10.13.x had trouble with the latest WS11WineCX19.0.1 engine which is used for all Steam games (is required to let Steam work) and some other games. So that meaned, that if you had an older Mac OS for example 10.11.5 and you wanted to play Skyrim or Age of Empires 3, then you would end up in a “dosdevice not found” or similar error message which ended up in a premature failure. Well ladies and gentlemen, that is fixed now :) Thanks Dean!

So call on everyone with old OSX version to re-test the installation where you had trouble with recently. It should now give no problems with installation anymore.

Of Orcs And Men for Mac

Another great game! Of Orcs And Men for Mac! Which is also of course tested in Catalina OS 10.15.x. tested the first level for the most part with no issues.
