So, with High Sierra coming out this year, we may be seeing the great app-ocalypse happening. Just a quick look told me that most of the games I currently have installed is 32 bit, and may or may not work under High Sierra.

Would it be possible to get a column under your library in the MGS app, that shows 64 bit support for each individual app? Like in the System Rapport under Programs.

Would be a great idea for all game stores. Also, until that gets implemented you can look up individual games on the pc gaming wiki and they'll have info on whether or not the game is 32 or 64 bit most of the time(for all platforms).
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

FYI High Sierra is the current one; I don't think they've named the new one yet.

It's a thought.

You can only do it for your whole system, as you pointed out. You'd think it would be a Finder attribute you could create a Smart Folder with, but if it is I haven't found it.

Oh yeah, that was of course an error. The OS after High Sierra.

They said that High Sierra will be the last to run 32-Bit  “without compromise.” I take that to mean they’ll still run in 10.14, but it’ll be annoying (like a dialog box every time you launch one like in iOS 10.)

I don’t think they’ll drop support til 10.15 in 2019.

The 10.11.4 beta already does that, so...

I’m not on the beta, but I think it only bugs you once, not every time you launch.

10.13.4 you mean? It seems you have trouble with macOS versions in this thread. ;)
