In Topic: (old) steamclient on (old) machine

Yeah, I thought it extremely rude of Steam to not do a self-EOL build for prior OSX when they updated steam above multiple OSX versions. October 2018 they jumped up to 10.11 minimum, and pushed an update to everyone on lesser OSX that effectively killed steam to run. Such brilliant minds over there :P

A company that has how many millions/billions of revenue and many multiple employees... yet cannot do something so simple as an EOL build to maintain support? Hell, even the "one guy" who codes the MacGameStore.app, did EOL builds for even 10.4 !!

Anyways, got off track.

Hopefully you figure it out. I know on PC you can just copy the entire steam folder from one machine to another, and launch and it usually figures itself out and finds all the installed games OK. However... on Mac, I dunno. Steam has make a lack luster piece of crap app on the mac side (really no idea why they even bothered, tbh).

Side note: App Store employs online activation too. And its even more rigid in their ways. So I'm not sure its a better alternative to truly DRM-free mac games (which are hard to find nowadays).

Agree completely. I still vastly prefer my Mac for doing work, but the Cook era Apple is the antithesis to being an enabler of Mac gaming that the previous decade was. PC for play (and very CPU and GPU intensive work, hence the beefy CPU and workstation GPU rather than a gaming one), Mac for 90% of other work, productivity tasks, and just general use works out extremely well for me. I've got my PC workstation/gaming dual-use set up, and two workstations with Thunderbolt displays set up for my Mac and I just plug my MacBook Pro into whichever one I'm going to be using at that time and go.

Right, I can't be bothered to do any 'work' on my PCs, and I can't be bothered to do any 'play' on my Macs. There is no longer black n white love/hate for macs/pcs with me anymore. I used to be pro-mac all the way or gtfo.... but, naw, not anymore. Viva la diversity. Its the millennial way.

Cant be bothered with it on any platform until they lift the fascist epic thumb of fail on it.

Because you clearly enjoy them?

There are too few to enjoy. Its cheaper buying them directly (the ones I want to even bother playing), than to pay $15/mo forever just so I can possibly hop into one. I just don't understand game subscriptions when theres so few choices.

Now something like getting access to 500+ games for ten bucks a month... that makes more sense.

Its not as bad as Adobe though.........

I'm going to try and jam in as much ubisoft games as I can during the free trial period of their all-access subscription plan. After the free trial I will cancel... because I can honestly not see why I would pay $15/mo for *just* ubisoft games.... like... wat.
