    64 Bit Launcher for Catalina?

    Any word on if we might be getting a 64 bit launcher that will play nice with the upcoming Catalina?

    The x64 bit Wine client works great but it's contingent to a 32 bit launcher that is no longer supported with the new OS.

    Still working on 64b in the LS. Few buggy things here and there but we post when something is brakes and Dev team works fast as they can to fix. More details on problem better the know what to fix. But 64b is very very nice to play.It will take time since LOTRO is 1st older games to move to 64b.Talked with a friend in Bioware and they said if SSG can work it out then soon others will follow their lead.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    Thanks for your response but if you can forgive my ignorance can I ask what 'LS' is/means?

    It's September and Catalina is all but here. I'm running the beta on two of my boxxen, which means they don't LOTRO. Please don't make us stay with anachronistic technology just to play the game. Security matters!

    Well, most likely it won't be released tomorrow. I would suspect it around the 24th of September based on previous release dates.

    Also I would suspect to see an updated client once it's officially released, if not a little bit afterwards.

    I don't know about "works great."

    Like, it mostly works, which is I guess good by mac gaming standards, but the fact that the wine-preloader runs 32-bit and the wine-server runs 64 bit causes a lot of crashes and cpu freezes (at least to me), when the game has to render a lot of things quickly--like riding your mount around Minas Tirith, or warehorsing through Bree wen there's heavy population, etc.

    Fingers crossed that they do make a new client with Catalina coming out, but a lot of game devs sadly neglect the mac side of their development hard...
