PS Setting the installer USB key as the startup disk would have also been smart. I had forgotten about all the restarts during an OS update, so clearly it restarted back into the main partition before it had properly finished.

All I needed to do was reboot via the installer USB. It simply hadnít finished yet! Half the time, computer problems are solved by just being patient, it seems. And now I can play The Movies again!

Also good points. Well, I am finally going to have to learn how to create a bootable USB key for some games for which I only own Mac versions (e.g. I’d like to get through The Movies someday!). That said, I myself am still only on High Sierra on my main computer (late 2015 iMac) for this very reason. Interesting side note: I bought ​Assassin’s Creed II via MacGameStore ages ago, and it never worked properly (e.g. no gamepad support). It stopped working altogether an update or two ago. However, I didn’t realize that I could also download the PC version in Boot Camp via Uplay (I had registered it there at some point)! So, that was a little good news.

It still won’t play nicely with my iMac, but hilariously, it works just fine with my even newer MacBook Air after some resolution adjustments. Seems it must be related to screen size.

Well, here we are, a new year, and I have a response from Topware at last, specifically Dirk P. Hassinger, VP Business Development. It is short but not so sweet, and it seems as if they have silently dropped Mac support altogether, from all of their games, because it is too much work:

That is it. That is all he had to say. Two Worlds II (the base game and some DLC) is still officially listed on Steam as Mac compatible, as is X-Blades. Of course, Topware is not the only one guilty of this, but it is even more frustrating than listing a game as having controller support when it doesn’t.
