I wasn't able to find any information on this, so I'm posting it. On my macOS Mojave installation I am running PlayOnMac with Steam inside to play AOE II HD. When I start the PlayOnMac app, it warns me that the app wont work in future releases of the operating system unless it's updated as a 64bit app. I am not sure which PlayOnMac version I am running since "About PlayOnMac" doens't do anything. And I haven't found any mention of a 64bit version of PlayOnMac. When will this be targeted? Because otherwise this will mean that a lot of people won't be able to use the software after they update the system.

For the moment, we cannot guarantee that wine will support 64bits only macOS which is a prerequiste.

However:

  • the next version of PlayOnMac (Phoenicis) is 64bits ready ;
  • we have managed to build one version of wine 4.0 with hangover support. We can run very basic 32bits programs like Notepad++ on 64bits wine
