Happy Death Day to PzC for Mac

Post by proline » Mon Oct 07, 2019 6:21 pm

With the release of Catalina, PzC for Mac is now dead. It enjoyed just a couple years of life and one, single update that addressed only a fraction of its many bugs. Fortunately for Slitherine, it cost the same as PzC for PC or iPad. Of course thanks to Catalina's Catalyst feature, they could have the iPad version up and running on the Mac by the end of the day if they wanted to help their customers out. Not going to happen.

RIP, Mac port.

My solution was to install a second version, High Sierra, of macOS and run High Sierra and Catalina in parallel where I boot into High Sierra when I want to play Panzer Corps while I use Catalina for everything else.

In case anyone is interested I created a short tutorial of what I did viewtopic.php?f=146&p=812593#p812593

don't install Catalina.

Its an upgrade made to break older software so you have to buy new things.

Yeah, heaven forfend Apple stop supporting certain obsolete tech 15 years after they said they were going to. That's definitely the problem and not the people who released a game in 2017 using 2005 technology.

Catalina has managed to to keep actual software that is from an Apple subsidiary from working, and not just old versions, but actually the newest one.

Neither Mojave nor Catalina have been particularly good. High Sierra worked better and was more reliable.

Sure. It's too hard to keep back compatibility to obsolete 32 bit. The guys from Microsoft are really genius. :roll:

It's the usual Apple policy. They really care for customers, never interested in selling new hardware or new software. :wink:
