So Aspyr will supposedly bring 'Jedi Outcast' and 'Jedi Academy' to the Switch and PS4,
but they won't update those  games to 64-bit for macOS?
Thanks Aspyr...

According to the old grumps on this forum Macs are unusable for playing games so smart move Aspyr.

Not true! They’re great for really old games, like these!

Not anymore when Catalina drops.

Not going to install Catalina. Of course, that won’t be a viable choice anymore whenever I upgrade/ when security updates for Mojave stop.

Really not that big of a deal just to keep an install of Mojave around for legacy 32bit games and apps, on a 2nd partition or even a USB thumbdrive. At least that's what I'll be doing. Certainly less of a hassle than keeping around a PPC Mac is for legacy non-x86 games...
Devices I play games on:

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016, 4 TBT3) — 3.1 GHz i5-6287U | Iris 550 | 16 GB RAM | 512 GB Flash | Space Gray

iMac (Flat Panel) — 700 MHz PPC 7450 (G4) | GeForce2 MX | 640 MB RAM | 40 GB HDD

Sure, but then you run into the same problem anyway when you eventually upgrade, unless you want to keep that machine around.

I’d be more inclined to upgrade if there were compelling new features in Catalina. Maybe I’ll re-evaluate my decision when interesting Catalyst apps shape up, like Overcast. But for now, Catalina on the work machine will be enough.

That is indeed true; however that will be some years from now still and I tend to keep my old devices anyway.

'SimCity: Complete Edition' was updated to 64-bit on the Mac App Store.

'The Sims 2', 'SimCity 4' and 'C&C: Generals' are still 32-bit.

And update this game to 64-bit and Metal, so I can buy and play it on Catalina.

So this is sort of unrelated to this thread, but... whatever.

I've been having problems with the Mac version of Kotor since December. I've made two tickets with Aspyr and they haven't responded to either, and they just closed the first one after a month with zero communication. So, hopefully that means they're too busy to deal with my popsnizzle.

That sucks...I always had good dealings with them, but that was several years ago... What issues, exactly?

Audio issues mostly, certain sounds not playing like blasters and other ambient stuff. Happens across multiple computers and not on windows, so I assumed it had to do with the 64 bit update. Not exactly a game breaking issue but months without a response is weird.
