I've been very busy since I've started this topic, but now that I've finally got some time I wanted to keep my promise and update the startpost to add all of the titles that other people've posted. Unfortunately I don't see an Edit button. There seems to be some kind of time limit for editing posts and I assume the startpost's too old to be edited. Well, if this forum doesn't allow it then there's nothing I can do about it.

To add at least something useful to this topic, I'll add my list from the "Feral's upcoming project?" topic:

Feral posted a list of games that will be removed from digital stores on or before the 31st of December:
http://www.feralinte...om/en/news/933/

Apparently these games aren't going to get the 64-bit treatment:
- Battlestations: Midway
- Battlestations: Pacific
- BioShock
- Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
- GRID 2
- LEGO Batman
- LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
- LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
- LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7
- LEGO Indiana Jones 2
- LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
- Mini Ninjas
- Rayman Origins
- SEGA Superstars Tennis
- Sid Meier's Pirates!
- Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing
- The LEGO Movie Videogame
- Tomb Raider: Anniversary
- Tomb Raider: Underworld

So, I think we'll now know which games are going to be updated and which games aren't. Mafia II for example is listed on my Mac as a 32-bit app, but it's not on their list of games which will go out of sale, so then I expect it will be updated.

I went to the Mac App Store to view the games they've released sorted by release date and see which games won't make the cut. These are their games on the Mac App Store sorted by date with those that'll go out of sale by the end of the year in red:
- Mini Ninjas
- LEGO Indiana Jones 2
- LEGO Star Wars Saga
- Sid Meier's Pirates!
- Battlestations: Midway
- LEGO Batman
- LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
- Battlestations: Pacific
- LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7
- BioShock
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition
- Tomb Raider: Underworld
- Borderlands Game Of The Year
- LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
- LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4
- Tropico 3: Gold Edition
- Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing
- SEGA Superstars Tennis
- Tomb Raider
- Rayman Origins
- Tropico 4: Gold Edition
- LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
- Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
- The LEGO Movie Videogame
- XCOM Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition
- GRID 2
- LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
- Total War: SHOGUN 2 Collection
- Total War: SHOGUN 2 - Fall of the Samurai Collection
- LEGO Jurassic World
- BioShock 2
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY
- Alien: Isolation - The Collection

- GRID Autosport
- Mad Max
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

Now that Feral has updated Railroads for 64bit compatibility, does anyone know if the MGS version will get the update?

Happy New Year IMG!
So the Feral 64-bit Apocalypse happened... all of the above were taken off the Mac App Store, somehow with the exception of 'LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7', so both LEGO Harry Potter games are still available.

According to Feral, the MAS version got that update as well.

Only if Feral supply it. However I suspect all of the Feral titles on MGS are just going to be switched to Steam-Codes only.

Looked through more of my 32-bit games.

Good news
  • Myth 2 - Turns out Project Magma released a 64-bit version a couple months ago. Huzzah! Soulblighter is (still) here!
  • MacMAME - looks like there is a 64-bit build but I haven't tried it yet.

Uncertain future
  • Freespace 2 (FS2Open) - Shame, but at least I played the main campaign last year.
  • Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle - Double Fine converted the iOS versions to 64-bit when that app-ocalypse happened so there's some hope, but it's by no means certain.
  • Descent 1 & 2 (DXX Rebirth project) - Overload scratches this itch but I would miss the classic levels.
Probably not, but should run in VMWare:
  • Braid
  • Darwinia
  • Dragon Age Origins
  • The Fool and His Money
  • All my GOG games that were built with Boxer
Probably toast:
  • Sheepshaver (classic Mac emulator) - this would be a blow.
There are other 32-bit games in my Steam Library that I don't know about, just because they aren't currently installed. But I've been doing a good job of playing down my backlog so I'm not too worried.

Oh crap, sheepshaver. Didn’t even think of that. Can’t play my Ferazel’s Wand in Windows.

Edit: Looks like it is 64-bit now. Hurrah. https://www.emaculat...php?f=20&t=7360

According to yesterday's Feral newsletter Tomb Raider will be the next game to be updated to 64-bit and Metal and should be released somewhere in the upcoming weeks:

Quote

Tomb Raider up next for 64-bit treatment
Tomb Raider is the next Feral game to be future-proofed with an update to 64-bit. The update uses Feral’s latest code libraries and Apple’s Metal graphics API for a performance boost across supported Macs. Look out for it in the coming weeks.

Since my Mac can't run Metal, what's actually happening is that they are slowly making the games I can currently play incompatible. :-P

If you have the games on Steam, you will most likely still be able to access the OpenGL version in the beta branch. At least, that's what Feral did for Batman: Arkham City.

Does it mean that the MAS version will get updated no matter what? I suppose it won't, because the Metal version will require Mojave (which itself requires Metal), and the MAS checks that.

I think the MAS allows downloading the latest compatible version of apps in your purchase history, just like the iOS App Store does.
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 (27-inch, Late 2012) — 3.4 GHz i7-3770 | GTX 680MX | 32 GB RAM | 1 TB Fusion Drive
iMac (Flat Panel) — 700 MHz PPC 7450 (G4) | GeForce2 MX | 640 MB RAM | 40 GB HDD
iMac (5 Flavors) — 333 MHz PPC 750 (G3) | ATI Rage Pro | 512 MB RAM | 6 GB HDD | Tangerine

iPhone X — 256 GB | Silver
iPhone 5s — 32 GB | Space Gray
iPad Pro (10.5-inch) — 256 GB | Space Gray
iPad Air 2 — 64 GB | Space Gray
iPad — 16 GB
iPod touch (3rd generation) — 32 GB
iPod touch — 8 GB
Apple Watch (1st generation) — 42 mm | Stainless Steel (Yes, there's games for watchOS)

I sort of assumed that would be true. Still, the idea that their hard work was having the exact opposite effect made me laugh.

Actually, it's Apple that makes your games incompatible.

Since I am neither upgrading my machine nor my OS at the moment, in a narrow sense this is not true. But of course Feral wouldn't be making these updates in the first place if Apple wasn't migrating to 64-bit only. So in a wider sense you are correct.

Oh you lot have stepped all over my joke. I'm off to sulk for a bit. (goes off to sulk for a bit)
