Mac OS 13.3 Ventura breaks stuff…

A quick heads up about the recent update of Mac OS 13.3. It looks like the update broke some stuff in Wine including games ported by Codeweavers like World of Tanks (will only give a black square which should be the launcher). I do not know the extend of the issues it brings but I hear a lot of complaints about Steam games like Age of empires 2 Definitive Edition which wouldn’t work somehow anymore.

I updated my Mac to the Mac OS 13.4 Beta, to see if it fixed World of Tanks, and that seems to do the trick to get WOT work again. Also when I check Age of Empires 2 DE, it seems to work fine as well including Steam. So I really advise to or not update to 13.3 or when you already did, to install the 13.4 beta (if you cannot wait the official release of the 13.4). You can do that by joining the beta program, which is free.

I hope the 13.4 update will be released soon. Meanwhile there is at last a workaround.

  1. 13.3 fixed a lot of stuff, also games, NOT working too for me. so bust be dependent on models and apps.

  6. FWIW: I checked Software Update for my M2 Air, 13.3 is not available today 24 Apr 2023. I will have 13.2.1, and it is reported as “up to date”.

    This is my first attempt at Porting Kit so I don’t know much more.

  7. Hi all,

    I need your help guys.
    My beloved Witcher 3 GOTY does not work anymore.
    Last time I played around the 26th of march it work perfectly – yesterday(26th of APRIL) i tried again and it does not even start.
    I use only porting kit and have venture 13.3.1 on a mac pro m2.

    I m getting the following errors:

    any ideas what i can do?
    my next step would be to reinstall witcher 3 GOTY but after reading your comments i doubt it.

  8. The Johnny Rubin post above (follow directions exactly) works for AOE2: DE. Confirmed on macOS 13.3.1

  9. @Gerald Atzgendorf
    I updated the port with an engine which should fix this. Can you reinstall the port and let me know by mail?

  10. Hello I am using the port but it still doesnt work. I cant login anymore. I am on the 13.4 beta too. The log says everything is fine

  11. Hi
    I’m having the same problems with the Stalker Anomaly wrapper. Game ran fine (also modded and launching through Mod Organizer). The 13.3/13.3.1 update broke everything and now I cannot even install a new instance of the Stalker Anomaly wrapper. I’m interested to know of the 13.4 update fixes this particular problem.

  12. i updated to 13.4 beta and still the steam login screen is just staying black :(
    whats the workaround?

  13. hi paul,
    thanks for your answer.
    I signed up for the mac os beta and witcher 3 GOTY was working under the beta 3rd of 13.4
    today updated to the beta 4th of 13.4 and got the following error again.

    how do I reinstall the port and do you know if I can get back the beta 3rd of 13.4?

  14. I had AOE2 Definitive running in the beta, but its broken after the final 13.4 release.

  15. Heads-up reported via the PK app too, but posting here, just in case the app’s email did not arrive:
    Fallout 4 port was working splendidly on my end (M1 Max, all 13.4 public betas), but the 13.4 RC released to beta testers last week broke it. Possible that this will affect quite some ports. From what I have come to understand, seems like the issue could be that the bundled versions of Wine and/or CrossOver are no longer compatible with 13.4 and have to be updated (depending on which modules are required for the port).

    Re: the last question by Gerald (10-May) – as far as I am aware, macOS does not allow downgrading to a prior version. In other words, unless you have a full system backup of the prior version (strongly recommended by Apple for all participants in the beta program), there is no way to go back. All one can do is wait for everyone to catch up – best case: there are already Wine and CrossOver versions available that are compatible, and the affected PK ports just need an update to use those instead.
    Here’s to hoping it is as simple as it sounds…

  16. AOE2 Definitive worked under Ventura 13.3 but no longer works under 13.4. It acts like it has opened the game, but nothing ever displays except the loading dialogue boxes. Steam thinks it is running because upon seeing no game interface, when I try to launch it again, Steam gives an error and says the game is already open and running, (even though I see nothing on the screen. Any suggestions to get AOE2 Definitive running again would be appreciated.

  17. After a recent Steam update (over Memorial Day weekend?), AOE2 Definitive (on Studio Mac with Steam), now works for me under Mac OS Ventura 13.4. Thanks for the update! Much appreciated…
