I will never get to anything after High Sierra if they don't release a 64bit upgrade to Civilization IV.

I don't have the game installed now, but that's only so I don't play it. I think I have accumulated around 700 hours in that game so far.

I don't think 10.14 will kill 32-bit support. That'll happen next year.

That said, I will never get to anything after Sierra because bugs. :teehee:

Apple has been pretty darn clear about it. High Sierra will be the last macOS to run 32bit apps without compromises. What 'compromises' will mean, we will see, but I think it is safe to say that I would want CivIV updated anyway. :P

ipickert55, why would they bother as long as Windows keeps supporting 32 bit apps?

Because it would still help with newer hardware and if Microsoft is gonna do that in the future anyways might as well do em both at the same time?
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

It doesn't matter for newer hardware, and Microsoft, unlike Apple, has always had backward compatibility for a loooong time in its operating systems. IMHO, It will take at least fifteen years or more before MS drops 32 bit support. Windows 10, if you choose the 32 bit flavour, can still run 16 bit apps natively from 25 years ago! So no one will spend money to convert apps to 64 bits when it's not needed or not even even really useful.

"Without compromises," not "at all"...they will still run. In the State of the Union they said the release after HS they will "aggressively" warn users. They'll probably just make that popup appear every time you launch a 32 bit app, instead of once in High Sierra.
