64 bit

Post by MesaDon » Sun Aug 27, 2017 12:55 am

Before I take the dive since I am running a mini Mac (the free dL works fine) is this a 64 bit game. Don’t want to be burned with the Mac like with my iPad.

It's 32bit. However if the free container version works, that shouldn't be a problem? In fact why would it be? I compile the Mac builds on a Mac Mini myself.

Seems that High Sierra will be the last with full 32 bit compatibility and no way I want to go back to Windows but we don’t need to go to that discussion. Thanks for the info.

Maybe I should be clearer. Free is fine but if I purchase DLC and Apple stops support for 32 bit then that is money lost relatively quickly in terms of time span since that could be as soon as summer (maybe later) but on retirement income we try to be careful.

Ah right, Apple and it's unique ways :roll:

Considering this game is made in Unity, converting to 64bit is just a simple switch of a build setting however. So I wouldn't worry about compatibility issues no matter what dubious choices Apple makes in the future.

Thank you looks like I can DLC with a sense of security.
