Wonder if combined with:

sudo softwareupdate --ignore "macOS Catalina"

Then it would truly stfu. Dont get me wrong, at SOME point I want to upgrade to 10.15 ... when its like 10.15.47236 at the going rate of all the issues in it....

This guy made a ridiculous script to circumvent the problem: https://robservatory...m-macos-mojave/

Maybe, but Galaxy 2.0 isn't out yet.

Well, strictly speaking, neither is Steamís, itís just an open beta.

You can apply for GOG Galaxyís closed beta here: https://www.gogalaxy.com/en/

At times, it seems no one is steering the rudder at Valve. I expect the company to shut down when Newell dies.

Hot take: Newell leaving would actually be the best thing to happen to Valve. The company needs new leadership.

You can remove the badge with this Terminal command (requires you to re-add it to the dock):

defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 0

Itíll come back when you visit the pane, though. So a better solution might be to use an alias.

Not anyone has to be tech-savvy, and when Apple is nagging your with that idiotic red badge on system preferences, you just do what Apple tells you to do.

When you run the installer, Apple does check app compatibility and shows you the 32-bit apps you have.

Wondering if anyone can confirm... but it looks like all 32bit only mac apps on steam are vanishing entirely, and even the keys people try to redeem for those games (which were once mac offered) are now being only given a windows install, and not the mac app.

So does this mean all 32bit only mac apps on steam will no longer even be allowed to re-installed?! If so... might need to try and install all of them before steam yanks all rights to download them.

They're removing them from sale, but if you've already bought them you can download them.

#451340 What games are people playing these days!?

Posted Cougar on 17 September 2019 - 09:37 AM

I must have looked at this thread last night, because I dreamed Charles Cecil demoed Broken Sword 6 to me and some other random people. The game had combat, which he demonstrated to us by having us play with wooden swords and shields. It also had a portrait mode on iOS, with the unused portions of the screen taken up by a Power Macintosh 5200 LC so it looked like you were playing on one. My dream-self is crazy...

Microsoftís is actually a really good deal. Play $2 and get access to brand new games like Gears 5 and The Outer Worlds. At that price I wouldnít mind not owning since I never replay games. Iíd strongly consider it if I didnít have a backlog that reached the moon.

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...

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

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

As someone who has felt shame for not being able to get into Spiderweb games on account of the graphics (while not considering myself a graphics person) I found this post on the subject enlightening: http://jeff-vogel.bl...e-crap.html?m=1

As the Switch is closer to Android/Linux, I think this would rather impact the rate of Android/Linux ports. A developer proficient in Metal isn't much use for Switch programming.

Brad Oliver mentioned on Twitter that heís working on the Alien Isolation port.
