I remember Warcraft 2 had some great tracks.

I've stuck with the Logitech models that use their unified USB dongle as I always hated the delay with bluetooth recognising the Apple mice and keyboards in the past so never went back to it. I never even used to bother with the Logitech software and just set mouse buttons and scrolling speed in the OS but I do have Logitech options installed now.

Thanks - it gets so confusing with all the variants using the same basic name. I did not realise the iMac RX580X was down clocked. I am using a desktop RX580 in my 10 year old Mac Pro and hanging in there but really wanted a big jump in GPU performance for better 1440p to consider a new Mac (2019 Mac Pro is out of my league). My hope was for desktop 5700XT performance or better in the iMac but sounds like that is not likely.

My understanding was that the  5500XT and below are 1080p targeting cards and not even as fast as the RX 580 (desktop)?

In Topic: 64-Bit compatibility topic

I'm not on Catalina yet but it seems this is rather like the PowerPC to Intel transition in that you will need to source PC versions of your old 32-bit games to run in Wine or a Windows VM if you want to run them inside Catalina.

Most of the Mac versions are now abandoned and won't be patched and although you can run older MacOS versions in a VM on Catalina the 3D Graphics acceleration isn't available (making them only useful for other applications).
